    I did, just it's less than 1%:P

    Racing games are mostly the same, so for a LOT of them if you play one you've played them all, so without something unique to set each other apart (eg: mechanics, car options, etc.), then it's not worth playing really unless you want a game that's just "good", but not "best". Examples of games that are unique or at least were at the time to differentiate themselves from other racing games are Gran Turismo 4 (TONS of content and all sorts of whacky scenarios like Ford cup with cars from 1908, among other things), Grid (just beautiful overall, really good mechanics/controls and was THE single realistic multi-terrain driving game back in the day), FIA WRC 2006 on PSP (because to this day it has some of the most accurate controls for off-road cars that very based on terrain, speed, gear, torque, etc.), Underground 2 (revived NFS as a series by being just a simple but deep and with lots of content racing game that also had good controls), MicroMachines on PS2 mainly (really unique twist by going back to top-down racing and making it with toys inside the house racing through kitchens and whatnot), etc., but despite all those being great games I'd never call them my favorite in general because they all get boring after a bit.

    NFS Most Wanted hands down is better than most non-racing games out there.

    Replayability isn't that big of an issue to me, considering most games out there have the same path, they are just being longer usually.

    As for the shorter games, it doesn't really matter to me, played Max Payne 3 for the 8th time ( Or more like Max Payne 3 hours to complete ) and i still enjoy this game, i would even say that's one of the best TPS game you can find on the market.

    Max Payne does have replayability, all 3 are amazing games (well, 3 not so much, being a baldie kinda ruined the feel of it lol), I've played 3 start to finish about 12 times and 2 almost 90 times (YES, 90, some normally, some fucking around with cheats like using "jump 20" to skip entire sections of levels or find glitches, even have a youtube video with that on my channel). My point isn't that you'll get bored after the same amount of time, it's that by the time you finish a racing game you want to move on to something else instead of doing it all over from the start, so I wouldn't say it's a "favorite", more like just something you enjoyed. With how many games there are out there, calling everything you liked a favorite goes against the definition of the word:P

    Jeez, another one that would be a massive list for me, I’ve been around so long there’s just too many games :D

    But, pretty much any 1st party Nintendo games, particularly Mario, Zelda and Metroid. Gears of War, Uncharted, Agony (Amiga) and Infamous.

    I’ll just stop there or I’ll be writing for hours :P

    Max Payne 3, multiplayer aside doesn't really have that much replayability, i mean, at least not more than any usual racing game out there.

    If you've played it, you should know that it's impossible to 100% in one playthrough, the golden weapons alone need 2 playthroughs, plus to get all "hints" on all levels you do need to re-do the entire game at least once. Sure, it's not really mandatory or even important, but another thing is that "replayability" also means that the game remains fun to play in subsequent playthroughs, racing games do not, you finish one and don't want to do anything with it 5 minutes later, at least for the vast majority of them. MP games are still fun even after you play them 10 times, especially MP2 since after beating it like three times normally you can replay with dev controls and mess around to your heart's content, which almost never gets old:rofl2: It's like playing old Lucas Arts games like Outlaws and using all sorts of fun cheats like flight and whatnot to make the game more fun after you've already beaten it and trust me, it GREATLY extends replayability, whereas even with cheats/mods, racing games get boring because the core in itself is boring, so the moment you get over the novelty of what they offer, it gets tiresome.

    Animal crossing and story of seasons because even though these games look pretty simple and child-like (thats what my friend said, I dont agree to this) it's got a lot of enjoyable contents :))

    Classic RPGs like Baldur's Gate. Though I don't have much time to replay these...
