For me it would be Neverwinter Nights and Planescape: Torment. It was the first D&D game I played and being one who spent many hours playing D&D this game will always have a special place. I don't think I need to explain why I love the second one so much. Those who have played it will know why and those who don't need to play it.

Mario Party 2 if that counts. Whenever me and my sister are together, we always crack that out. It's kind of our thing. I'd say that and Mario All-Stars and Super Mario World.

#3 Posted by TheSeductiveMoose (3629 posts) -

Yup, I tend to replay Grim Fandango, Rome: Total War and Planescape: Torment at least once a year.

#4 Posted by General_D23 (1210 posts) -

I try to play Fallout 2 and KotOR every year or so. Those are...really the only ones I make a point of...I'll usually throw Civ 3 in (my first Civ game) every now and again, too.

#5 Posted by phrosnite (3512 posts) -

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones... I replayed them every year since 2005 but I think I won't be replaying them in 2011...

Games that I end up playing nearly once a year, for varying amounts of time: 
Diablo II 
World of Warcraft  (I actually do end up quitting for a while and returning once or twice a year)
Sacred 2 
And there are a handful of MMOs that I go back to not necessarily annually, but every so often. 

#7 Posted by MysteriousBob (6262 posts) -

I don't plan anything, but I guess I probably end up playing Streets of Rage 2 and Dynamite Headdy at least once a year.

#8 Posted by Crono11 (1653 posts) -

I play Final Fantasy 7 and the Legend of Dragoon about once a year. I sometimes don't finish them but I at least play them. 

#9 Posted by Brodehouse (10801 posts) -

I'll play through most of Final Fantasy 6 every couple of years, usually in spring.

#10 Posted by TwoLines (3284 posts) -

Chrono Cross. I try to at least.

#11 Posted by Xerxes8933A (226 posts) -

Every year when I go home for christmas my dad and I pull out the NES and play some Pac Man or Mario.  Just a few hours, but every year.

#12 Posted by WickedFather (1694 posts) -

A Link to the Past and Broken Sword, but not annually, that's too often.

#13 Posted by TwoLines (3284 posts) -

Oh, I forgot- I play Doom 2 every single year. Twice a year even. Actualy, more than that. 
So.. that's not annualy, that's uh... that's all the time.

" Rome: Total War "
For some reason, I do this every year also. I can't put my finger on it, I just get in the mood to play some Rome.
#15 Posted by isles (256 posts) -

Still trying to catch up with the year that's just been and gone let alone replaying old games!

#16 Posted by Jasta (2232 posts) -

The Thing for the PS2. Fucking love that game.

#17 Posted by IcySandman (481 posts) -

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down for the PS2, whenever I get some people over during holidays etc fun occurs with this game.

#18 Posted by CornBREDX (6925 posts) -

I have lots. I tend to replay my games a lot, and since I've been gaming since the 80s (PC or otherwise) I tend to replay a lot of games.
To be me more in line with your question though:
Monkey Island (yes, all of them- even the bad one and the new one by tell tale)
Half Life
Half Life 2
Splinter Cell (all except the new one which isn't splinter cell and I pretend it doesn't exist)
The Longest Journey
There's probably more, but these are what I think of off the top of my head. I try to play games I like again every year. This year had some new ones which it's been awhile since I could say that so that's pretty neat.

#19 Posted by uniform (1837 posts) -

I do not. Chrono Cross as well as Maniac Mansion DotT would be the closest. I tend to complete those two every 2-3 years.

#20 Posted by Deeveeus (486 posts) -

Wonderboy 3: The Dragons Trap for Master System, All Megaman games for NES, and some of the Xs and a Link to the Past

#21 Posted by natetodamax (19427 posts) -

Fallout 3 for me.

#22 Edited by Trilogy (2759 posts) -

Kotor used to be my annual game but I've sort of fell off that wagon. I would probably play it again if there wasn't so many other games out that I'm behind on.

#23 Posted by kagato (1139 posts) -

Yeah i usually try to play through Final Fantasy VII and The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time at least once a year.  I used to love Square games, how the mighty have fallen...

#24 Edited by sparks50 (381 posts) -

I keep returning to the Swat 4 VIP escort multiplayer mode. I sometimes wish Irrational would ditch Bioshock and make a new Swat game(full disclaimer: that will never happen)

" No, I find it very hard to play a game more than once, even if I thought it was amazing. "
This. Although I probably get sucked back into Diablo 2 for at least one weekend per year.
#26 Posted by MythDarK (595 posts) -

Final Fantasy VI, Diablo II, Ragnarok Online, EVE online.

#27 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2245 posts) -

Mainly GTA: San Andreas but I'm sure I'll be adding ME2 to that list next year.

#28 Posted by Demyx (3240 posts) -

Final Fantasy X/XII
although I never really ever finish the former

#29 Posted by Sulla (50 posts) -

The only game that I have played every year since it came out is Civilization IV. I also tend to fall back to a Total War game (Rome, Barbarian Invasion or Medieval, haven't played Empire or Napoleon yet, though I will soon) at least once a year. There's quite a few other games I wouldn't mind making a yearly fixture, but it's hard enough as it is to keep up with new releases and a huge backlog.

#30 Posted by NinjaInfoCards (46 posts) -

Half-Life 2, Chrono Trigger, one of the KOTORs, Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle, and most of the Geneforge series. 
After playing Planescape: Torment for the first time this summer, I think I'll have to add it to the list. Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake are also contenders.

#31 Edited by LeetBalla (731 posts) -

Half-Life 2, Elder Scrolls IV, and MGS 3; usually play them on holiday or summer break between semesters.

#32 Posted by HarlequinRiot (1092 posts) -
@IcySandman: Man, I had Delta Force 2 on PC and I thought that was the coolest fucking game ever.  
I find myself playing Splinter Cell 1 about once a year. Along with Prime 2, until I realize I lost my save file. 
#33 Posted by akiora (7 posts) -

I feel the need to bust out the N64 and play Ocarina once a year.  Usually around spring break. Granted, I play it in between from time to time as well...but I need to do at least a full speed run once a year. 

A friend of mine and his brother get together every year to do a hardcore run on Diablo II.  That's a solid tradition, but man - hardcore mode is just so....stressful.   I'm content with Zelda.

#35 Posted by Badhands (411 posts) -

I play Fable 1 and oblivion normally once a year, and I have a feeling that mass effect 2 is going to be on that list.... for a year until ME3 comes out.

#36 Posted by Hockeymask27 (3687 posts) -

In December I always end playing Diablo 2 again. Never lasts more than a month or two but its a tradition. 

#37 Posted by Hairy_Fish (375 posts) -

The Ninja Gaidens. I don't know why. I remember having fun with them and decide to play them again.

#38 Posted by Ghostbuster123 (46 posts) -

I will play the entire Sly Cooper Trilogy once a year. They are relatively short games, and I can burn through them as I have played them too much

#39 Posted by armaan8014 (5942 posts) -

TES IV: Oblivion

#40 Posted by Hourai (2738 posts) -

Persona 3/4 is about all I can think of. 

#41 Edited by kalmis (1744 posts) -
Tropico 1 & Tropico 2 are mine. Should be buy the third one day. And play some Tropico over the holidays.
edit. Oh and Eve-Online. Always log back in when they send the free 5 day offers. Like now
#42 Posted by MEATBALL (4111 posts) -

Typically I'll play Ico and Shadow of the Colossus to close out the year.

#43 Posted by ATrevelan (618 posts) -

This is the first year since 2004 that I didn't play Baldur's Gate II and Throne of Bhaal to completion at least once. 
Fuckin' grad school.

#44 Posted by HaroldoNVU (623 posts) -

I play The Longest Journey every year, usually on the first semester. 

#45 Posted by owl_of_minerva (1485 posts) -

The first Fallout and to a lesser extent Fallout 2, although it's an inferior game to its predecessor. Nice choices though, Planescape: Torment in particular is amazing.

#46 Posted by Surkov (1019 posts) -

Half-life 2 and Shadow of the Colossus

#47 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5098 posts) -

Goldeneye and Oblivion.  In fact, I'm playing through Oblivion right now. 
#48 Edited by zameer (633 posts) -

I find myself busting out some Medieval II Total War every summer break, yeah.

#49 Posted by Theflinn (27 posts) -

FInal Fight Every summer, not a big time investment

#50 Posted by GetEveryone (4535 posts) -

Super Street Fighter 4. 
Oh, I thought you said daily. 
I don't really have an annual game, tbh. When I had my gameboy close to hand, I'd often replay Metroid Zero Mission/Fusion and Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons.
