Frequently, as I don't have the money to get new games very often

Nope. Once i finish a game i move on to the next, unless it's a fighter or something like mario kart. replaying the same game over again at least for me slightly tarnishes that first time experience, not only that but i find it to be a waste of time when i could be using the time to play new games which equal new experiences. I WILL pop in a game that i've already finished maybe a couple or so years later just for some tastey nostalgia, but usually no more than 15-20 minutes.

wow, I always had the impression you were the kind of person that keeps playing the old gems over and over again!

If I do its at least a year down the line. I have to really like it or it had to be a relatively short experiance. Its usually over the summer when i have more time to play games and a lot of new games arent released.

Obsessively. I don't have that many games because I will play a game over and over and over, just back-to-back like that until something else catches my eye.

@MixMasterMudkip That's very cool! I've played this, and I could definitely see the appeal of running it like that.

Under most circumstances, I do replay videogames I've already beaten.

Personally, It's difficult to remember a time where I've not replayed a game that I already beat.

With score attack and/or casual games (like Tetris, Zen Pinball, Alleyway, etc.), yes, all the time.

Anything else, almost never. Now, I sometimes run through certain GB games multiple times, because they're so short, but the only other time I replay a game is when I no longer have my original copy, and then get the VC version.

I almost never replay games. I find it boring for the most part.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

I replayed Fire Emblem: Awakening, inFAMOUS 2, and Guild Wars 2 (2 max level characters).

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Every 5 years years or so replay a game.

haha, well...I play a lot of old gems that i have never experienced before like Simon's Quest, StarTropics, Double Dragon 2, Castlevania III, just to name a few. but ultimately replaying the same game over and over again that i've already beaten isn't exactly my idea of a good time. I like to move on to the next the moment that experience is over.

Like i said, i'll dip into a game i've already beaten from time to time but i rarely play it til the end, usually just for nostalgia's sake. I've been itching to complete Castlevania III again, might save that one for next halloween including Demon's Quest and Gargoyles quest which are all going to be released on the Wii U's VC.

The latest re-dips i've had were Wario Land Shake it!, Klonoa, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, Mega Man 4, and Zack & Wiki.....played all of them for no more than 20 minutes each. Man, Zack & Wiki was such an amazing game. I'd kill for a Wii U sequel!

I don't even get halfway into most of my games, mush less replay them! I keep getting distracted by the cheap/free stuff that keeps coming my way.

I'm currently replaying Xenoblade - it's that good. And that's before finishing Last Story or Pandora's Tower (that latter has been played for under two hours).

But I'm playing a lot of open ended games lately (I might get back into Civ V now my Internet has come back), and with games like Tomodachi Life requiring a daily time investment, I don't really play linear games much.

Like I said, though, I've been playing Xenoblade through again (haven't even finished Skyward Sword!), and prior to that, I've been playing Little Kings Story on hard difficulty. My King is named Canute. I think I'll play it on easy next - I'll name him Herod and, periodically, I'll send squads of the young to their death.

I assume we're not talking about games like Mario Kart, platformers, or fighting games where we've all replayed certain sections countless times.

I've played through Chrono Cross about 25 times, Ocarina of Time about 15 times, and Tales of Symphonia about 10. No other games would come close to that for full playthroughs. Even Chrono Trigger, other Zeldas, and other Tales games, all of which I'm a fan of, I've played them through 2 or 3 times at most. I plan on replaying Wind Waker soon though, which I think will be my 4th time through the game.

These days, I'm mostly one-and-done.

It depends on the game, but if I really enjoy something and think I can get more out of it I will replay it. The main issue is finding the time to do so especially given my backlog of unplayed games. I replay Zelda games the most frequently but the game I've replayed the most consecutive times is Resident Evil 4. I'm currently replaying Final Fantasy IV, will replay Majora's Mask and then Skyward Sword and am itching to replay Mirror's Edge and Chrono Trigger. So yes, I replay my games.
