i had to buy silent hill 2 3 times. the first time it f-ing snapped when i tried to take it out of its case when i was up to the final area. ordered a new copy off ebay and rented the game to finish it. fast forward a year later and its missing. i cant find it. its GONE. had to buy yet another off ebay. if silent hill 2 wasnt game of the century i wouldnt do this but alas. so how many times have you had to buy a single game?

Tekken Tag. 
The first one I got, got all scratch up (Damn cat)
The second one I got would not load up after the title screen. Luckily the store took it back.
The 3rd one (which was free) had the same bug, they didnt take it back.
So like a year later I got it off Ebay for like £5. Had the same bug as the other 2! 
5th time I finally got a copy that work just fine. 
In the end, Tekken Tag was not worth all the trouble.

Probably Pac-Man the most:

  • 2600 version back in the early 80's
  • 2600 version was also available on the Atari Classics pack for the original Xbox
  • GBA version
  • XBox Live version
Funny thing, I'm not even a huge Pac-Man fan.  I much much prefer Centipede, Dig Dug, or Galaga.  I did buy Galaga for the GBA and then again off XBLA.  There are several games I've bought twice in fact. KOTOR, Age of Empires 2, Far Cry, Half Life and Half-Life 2, and Saints Row 2 (thank you Steam).

Halo 3 twice because the first one (And my 360, both my controllers, all my cables) was stolen out of my car. And I bought The Orange Box on PC and Xbox.

#15 Posted by ZenaxPure (2569 posts) -

I've bought like 5 copies of World of Warcraft (vanilla) if that counts, if not: the original Final Fantasy I think/guess.

Well Tetris, really. I've probably purchased like 10 versions of that game.

I bought two copies of Animal Crossing: City Folk plus a second Wii so my sister would have her own town and stop using mine.

Bought XIII, the comicbook-like FPS for the pc. It was 5 euros, so I bought it for myself and a friend.

I desperately want to play Silent Hill 3 but I don't have a PS2 anymore... Well I could ship it over but it's a hassel for 1 game.

Fallout 3 x3.  X360 and played to 100%, sold, bought for PC later, realized I don't enjoy playing single-player games on PC, bought GOTY for X360.
 
I've made this mistake a bunch with games I now own 2 copies of (i.e. X360 and PC, or PS3 and PC).

#29 Posted by evanbrau (1162 posts) -

Have bought Half Life 2 three times in total. Once for the pc, once for the xbox and then as part of the orange box. Which means I also bought Episode 1 twice.

#30 Edited by MrKlorox (11209 posts) -

SOTN three times, Morrowind three times. 
 
Didn't like Morrowind much, ironically. Got it on Xbox when it came out, and couldn't get into it. Got it on PC when Oblivion was about to come out, and still couldn't get into it (as well as performance problems). Got it on Steam bundled with Oblivion during an Elder Scrolls sale, decided not to waste time messing with it.
 
My dad bought me SOTN when he bought me my PS1 back in the day (initially hated it and was mad at him for getting it for me, but that changed drastically). I bought it again later for PS1 when my original disc came up missing. And a third time on XBLA. Oh and the soundtrack, if that counts for anything.

Shadow of the colossus 3 times... i keep losing/lending and moving house.

#36 Posted by HitmanAgent47 (8576 posts) -

FFX-2 three times. I also have a ton of games I bought twice, like the ps3 version of a game earlier and pc version later. I have tons, I need to have the best looking version and to play it early.

#38 Posted by GunnBjorn (2911 posts) -

I never bought a game twice or more. 
Only once, made a copy of it and shelve them untill the copied disc is worn and repeat the process all over again. 
#39 Posted by DeadRockstar (32 posts) -

Final Fantasy VII. US version, EU version and PSN.

#40 Edited by OneKillWonder_ (1787 posts) -

Probably Half-Life 2. Bought the original Xbox version after I got a 360, before the Orange Box came out. Then I bought the Orange Box for the 360, and then later bought it again on the PC.
 
Also, Sonic 2. Owned it on the Genesis, then bought it on XBLA, then later on bought Sonic's UGC, which had that and a bunch of other Genesis games I used to own.
 
Bought Jak II twice due to the first copy being stolen. Bought Timesplitters 3 twice because I had it on GameCube at first, then I got rid of the GC and all the games. I had an urge to play that again last summer and I went out and bought the PS2 version.

#44 Posted by fallen_elite (380 posts) -

I bought Oblivion 4 times or 5 times. I've never been so compulsive about re buying a game. Got it the first day of release on 360, then bought the GOTY for the 360 (If I recall), then bought the PS3 GOTY, then bought the PC GOTY, sold it, then re bought it on PC, sold it again and I will rebuy it on Steam during a weekend sale eventually and be done with it.

That was three times too many.  I've bought Starcraft or the SC battle chest about 5-6 times. It's been like $10 or $20 for 7 years. Plus, I fucking love that game.

#47 Posted by gunstar (252 posts) -

I've bought Link's Awakening 3 times. First one I lost. Second one was when the DX version game out. Third was when my DX version stopped saving randomly, though I could probably beat it in one sitting... batteries allowing.
 
Another is Gunstar Heroes on Genesis twice, and once on Xbox Live Arcade (yay username). Grand Theft Auto San Andreas on PS2 upon launch and Xbox just so I can listen to my own playlists while I play it. Earth Defense Force 2017 for 360 because the game is fucking awesome and I should have never sold it back to gamestop.

Halo 3. I bought it twice. Once on release and then a while later I picked up this "ODST" thing thinking it was a new game but it was just a new package.
