How many time have you completed your favorite games?



  • Of your favorite games that are not infinite, how many times have you completed them?

    Here are some of mine:

    1. Star Ocean 3: Until The End of Time - 4 completions.
    2. Dark Cloud 1 - 4 completions
    3. Dark Cloud 2 - 3 completions
    4. StarCraft Broodwar - 4 completions
    5. Final Fantansy XII - 3 completions
    6. Final Fantasy 3/6 - 3 completions

    There are many I have finished twice, but these are my most obsessive...



  • I haven't finished any arcade or console games multiple times (yet), but as for PC games, I did three complete playthroughs of System Shock 2 (two in 2P co-op, one alone).

    As a honorary mention, it took me three attempts to finish Arx Fatalis, whereby the first two got me nearly 80-90% through, but after pausing for too long for no particular reasons, I didn't remember enough of the plot objectives to complete the rest, forcing me to start anew the next time. In return, I finished its open source port Arx Libertatis a second time last year.

    Have you been able to compile Arx Libertatis on the Pi? I tried and failed, but might take another crack at it.



  • @VictimRLSH Sorry, I played it on my PC with Kubuntu 18.04.



  • EarthBound: I'm either on my fourth or fifth (sixth?) play through at the moment.
    Halo: I have absolutely no idea how many times I've played through this both solo and co-op.
    Lost Odyssey: I've never actually finished this. I have to different play-throughs that I could walk into the final boss fight but I don't because there's this one optional boss that I just can't seem to beat.
    Skyrim: Twice with almost 100% quest completion (I've never gotten all of the Stones of Barenziah). Could be a higher number but the last couple times I've started it I've ended up with game-breaking glitches.

    I don't know if I would call it a favorite yet but I played through DOOM: Eternal four or five times and enjoyed the heck out of that but it hasn't been with as long as others.



  • @simpleethat I intentionally omitted DOOM I+II on the PC, because I didn't know if "countless times" would be a valid answer for the thread's question. 😉

    There are some arcade games I've completed countless times on one credit, but did not list those. That might be a subject for another thread.



  • I left out games I've beaten a lot because I don't necessarily count them as favorites (Contra comes to mind) but Halo is one of my favorites.

    Games you've beaten the most times is certainly a different topic.

    Oh, and good old DOOM. :-)



    • System Shock I: 3x but there will be a fourth time once the remake is out :D
    • Limbo: 3-4x (The atmosphere of fear and loneliness is just perfecly done! Inside was almost as good!)
    • Xenogears: 2x (With 80h - 100h it's just too much for me... But I want to try the german translation for a third playthrough though.)
    • Resident Evil (with psx directors cut and gc remake): >4x

    It's interesting to note that now, with limited playtime due to work and kids, I tend to go back to those games even if there are so many new and excellent games. The Backlog is ever growing...



    • Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 (gb) : 10+ completions.
    • Final Fantasy VI (snes) : 4+ completions thanks to rom hacking community.
    • The Revenge of Shinobi (gen) : 5+ completions
    • Silent Hill (psx) : 5+ completions.
    • Half Life 2 (pc) : 10+ completions.
