Topic: Which ONE Game have you bought the most times?

Posts 21 to 39 of 39


The original super mario kart, I have bought this for the SNES, New 3DS, Wii U, Wii, Switch, and on the Snes mini.

I don't think I have missed any (nintendo) platforms that it is possible to play tis game, and still play it at least once a week.



Mega Man 8 for sure. I always try to find a way to play it on whatever console I own. I need to buy MMLC for Xbox, now that you mention it.

Mega Man 8 is on the short list of favorite games of all time for me.



I was going to say Streets of Rage 2 because I've bought multiple Genesis compilations over the years specifically for SoR 2. But if I were being's Minecraft. The game has sold over 238 million copies because it's the most popular indie game of all time and it's available on everything. I've purchased Minecraft on X360, PS Vita, PS4, Wii U, and twice on Switch, one digital copy and one physical copy.

Switch Physical Collection - 972 games (as of August 6th, 2022)

DOOM (1993) / DOOM II / Final DOOM

  • Physical copy for PC, which is my only souvenir from Paris in 2003
  • Purchased via GOG (my physical version runs on the DOOM95 port which isn't compatible with modern operating systems, and while I could have run the WADs using any number of free source ports, I also wanted the original DOS versions, which were cheap enough on sale)
  • Digital versions on Switch
  • Two physical copies for Switch

I also would have liked to buy the two GBA versions had they been available new or at a more reasonable price used, but I am content with my Switch copies.

I guess DOOM 3 also counts here, but I haven't purchased the BFG edition (physically or digitally), nor have I purchased the standalone expansion release for PC (which I am still tempted to do... one of these decades).

Pokémon Sword/Shield

  • Double pack with bonus steelbook
  • Standalone copies of each for standalone steelbooks (which were exclusive to EB Games), however, I sold Sword to my brother (at the lowest retail price, as EB charges full retail, and the steelbook effectively cost me the difference)
  • Standalone Expansion Pass physical releases

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

  • Original Wii U release
  • Switch version to play it all again
  • 3DS version to experience it with stereoscopic 3D

Resident Evil: Revelations

  • Original 3DS release
  • Wii U port
  • Switch port (which I am yet to complete and recently started playing again after however many years)
  • Digital version on PC (possibly received as part of a Humble Bundle)

I was also tempted to grab the physical release on PC back when, but resisted. I don't even know why I keep buying this game so many times as I don't even like it that much.

The Sims 2

  • Original PC game
  • Nintendo DS game
  • Game Boy Advance game (terrible and utterly forgettable compared to the last two excellent GBA entries)
  • Mobile variant 1 (very low-tech; barely resembled a game)
  • Mobile variant 2 (a little better than the crappy version for my ancient phone)

They're technically all different games that just happen to share the same name though. Had I owned a GameCube and a PSP, I would have bought them too, as those too would have afforded a different experience to the others, and I was completely obsessed with The Sims at the game, and I really enjoyed most of the games.

The Sims 2: Pets

  • Original PC expansion pack
  • The Sims: Pet Stories standalone game (runs on The Sims 2 engine; designed to play on lower end laptops; has two story campaigns and a "free play" mode that is essentially identical to The Sims 2, but is incompatible with expansion packs, but contains various items/features from some of the existing expansion packs, as well as some exclusive items never released for The Sims 2)
  • Nintendo DS game (one of the worst games I've ever played; it looked and played like a first year gaming student project)
  • Wii game

I would still like to someday grab the GBA game, which looked decent, but the DS game soured me from the franchise, and the entire franchise went down the toilet from here anyway. The above were also different games that shared the same title rather than being mere ports.


  • Tetris Party Live for DS
  • Tetris (Axis) both physical and possibly also digital for 3DS
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris for Switch (and I would have also bought this on 3DS/Wii U versions had they been localised for those platforms)
  • Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 for Switch
  • Tetris Effect Connected for Switch (LRG physical)

Wolfenstein 3D

  • Physical on PC (falsely advertised as containing Spear of Destiny, which was why I bought it in the first place!)
  • Digital via 3D Realms Anthology
  • Digital via GOG (as 3D Realms Anthology did not include Spear of Destiny)

I think that covers most (if not all) of them. And I've rebought most of Nintendo's own Wii U ports on Switch.

@Silly_G I bought 'Toad: TT' twice; 3DS and again on Switch as I liked it enough.
I think it's better as a 3D Game.
I never had a Wii U.



I have 3 copies of Castlevania Circle of the Moon and 3 copies of Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow. Why? I have no idea!


This is a good question... I would have to dig through my backlog to check, but I am sure there are quite a few I own multiple times. Off the top of my head.

Zelda 1 - Zelda Collector's Edition (GameCube), Virtual Console (Wii, 3DS, Wii U)

Zelda 2 - Zelda Collector's Edition (GameCube), Virtual Console (Wii, 3DS, Wii U)

Zelda Ocarina of Time - (N64), Zelda Collector's Edition (GameCube), Wind-Waker Bonus Disc (GameCube), Virtual Console (Wii U), Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS)

Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) - Sonic Mega Collection Plus (PS2), Sega Mega-Drive/Genesis Collection (PSP), Sega Mega-Drive/Genesis Classics (PS4), (Xbox Live Arcade), Sonic Generations (Xbox 360), 3D Sonic the Hedgehog (3DS), Sega Ages (Switch)

There is probably quite a few I am forgetting. I may come back if I remember to look through my backlog later.

Signature, huh? Where do I sign?


It's official: my first game I bought multiple times in recent years I could finally say with certainty is Digimon Survive: bought one on Steam and refunded it before I bought the physical edition on Switch that comes with the special Digimon TCG promo cards.

Hmmmmm…. I know the question was for ONE game but I’ve lost track so it’s a toss-up between Gun, Resident Evil 4, and Minecraft.



I'm pretty sure the one game I've bought the most, I've bought at least 6 times for the same platform and never even played the game.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Cuphead I think, tho I’m not 100 percent sure because I think I have my fair share of double dipping.

If we want to get technical, I've technically bought Street Fighter II 7 times: firstly World Warrior for free in Capcom Arcade Stadium 2, then all pre-2000's era versions featured in Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection and finally Hyper Anniversary Edition in Capcom Fighting Collection. All of this happened in the span of a month mind you, I just sort of blacked out and then suddenly 'Oops, All Street Fighter!'

I'm currently loving the Alpha series though, I've finished the first game and am about to head onto Alpha 2 and I definitely prefer it's faster paced, constant super activation gameplay compared to SF2 personally.

I think it's Super Mario World. We've had our SNES copy for the longest time, and I've had my GBA copy since around the time it came out. I also got it for the Wii, Wii U, and New 3DS, plus I've had it on NSO since the SNES app released.

Okami, four times. Wii, PS3 digital, PS4, and Switch digital.

Edited on by Nancyboy



Minecraft or Super Mario World


Switch Friend Code: SW-0772-1845-0995


Broken Sword 1: PC (CD-ROM, Steam, GOG), Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, Wii, Kindle Fire HD ...



Minecraft 3DS and Switch



I'd say it's a tie between Okami (Wii, PS3, PC, Switch) and Catherine (PS3, PC, Vita, Switch).

But I'm sure I have some form of Sonic 1&2 on most platforms I own. Always love a Sega Classics Collection.
