Often enough. I usually find that a has replay value just by being a good game. I'm less likey to replay a long RPG, and I probably won't replay an RPG if it's linear and really long. An open world game where you get new abilitys and and can mess around after you beat the game might not get replayed because I don't want to lose all my abilities when I restart though. (This has definetely happened with the first inFamous.)

Currently playing: Sacred Gold, Valkria Chronicles, Rune Factory 4, 007 Blood Stone, and Uncharted 3.

Not that much or after a significant amount of time has passed. (Even sequels I would rather have a long time between. Which is why I bought Lost World not tropical Freeze).

My favourite games you need to replay lots to even feel like you are playing them properly. (e.g Sonic Generations).

Depends on the game for me. I generally replay the older games from the NES, SNES, Playstation, PS2 and Gamecube more then the Wii or Xbox 360. Especially NES and SNES. For some reason games from last gen I dont feel the need to replay them once I finish them.

I know the main ones that come to mind that I replay alot are the Mega Man games mainly the ones on the NES.

I feel you with the last gen comment, I think it's because most modern games are just too much of an investment to jump into, dialogue, tutorials, cutscenes, restricted pacing....sure, it makes for superior storytelling in most cases, but the pick up and play factor gets left behind. I've only played Tomb Raider a few times over because The flow of the game is really well done.

Hence why the 8 and 16 bit gens still have that timeless quality, depending on the title.

Yeah that has alot of reason for it. with my job, a kid and other things going on in my life my game time is restricted so alot of times I only get maybe like an hour bursts to play a game. And if cut scenes and tutorials take up most of that time, well I dont feel like I accomplished anything in that game. Often I have had thoughts of replaying say a game like GTA V but then I think about the cut scenes and then that stuff and it just turns me off to it. Yeah I know you can skip the cut scenes but for some odd reason no matter how many times I play the game I feel the need to watch them. Not sure why that is but it is what it is.

Totally and completely depends on the game.

Strategy games like Fire Emblem, Civilization, Age of Mythology, and Advance Wars offer a high level of replayability and it's one of my favorite genres.

Action RPGs like Diablo, Torchlight, and Titan Quest beg for a replay with a new character class or build. Random loot and level generation keeps things fresh.

Platformers are good too because they are so skill based and often can be played in short level sized chunks.

I can totally agree to that too. It also holds true for MMOS. I can't even count how many times I have replayed levels 1-85 in World of Warcraft cause of a different character class, race, faction etc that I wanted to play from the last character.

Quite often, especially when I am sick or have had a long week. Some of my favorites to replay are Mario Galaxy, Okami, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Bowser's Inside Story, Pikmin, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Phantom Hourglass, Ocarina of Time, Skyrim and Civilization V.

I just got Ocarina of Time 3D in a care package yesterday (I am overseas for a year or two) so I am playing that again while I have a bad cold. The package had good timing. They really did a really good job with the remake though.

Almost never. I almost can't stand going through a game twice. It takes a game with insanely high replayability or performance-based/practice-based gameplay style to earn a replay from me. Most notably, I can replay just about any Rhythm game endlessly, but even Platformers tend to leave me struggling to replay it. And if it features a story line that takes up more than 40% of the playtime? Forget about it. I'm never replaying it.

I COME UPON THEE WITH RIGHTEOUS FURY FROM THAT OF THE SMASH FANDOM! ILLOGICAL STATEMENTS SHALT BE MET WITH ALL OF MINE RAGE... until I do something else. No sense in being grumpy.
