For me its left 4 dead 2. i could play that game for hours and never feel like its getting repetitive because of how fun valve made the gameplay and how active the community is.

LittleBigPlanet because there are always new levels to play.

#3 Posted by UlquioKani (1289 posts) -

Modern Warfare 2. I've had 20 days of playtime on it and I always come back to it for a couple of months a year.

#4 Posted by TheBluthCompany (455 posts) -

Just Cause 2. I've spent countless hours just driving around the world.

#5 Posted by Corevi (6793 posts) -

Kirby Super Star. I've also played disgusting amounts of every Clover/Platinum character action game and frequently want to go back and play them again.

Halo 2 multiplayer on the original Xbox. I have no clue how many hours I logged in on that game but I played it everyday for about 3 years. Also Metal Gear Online that same with Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory multiplayer.

The Pokemon games. I may go extended periods of time without playing them, but every time I pick one up it's always a blast.

Minecraft, so many mods that change it up but it all comes down to I just like creating. The only reason i haven't been back in a while is because i don't want to get sucked back in. The temptation is always there for me.

League of Legends. Its basically an addiction at this point, sure i can kick it for a few weeks or months but they always bring me back it with a new champ, or a kick ass game mode which they take out. Damn it Riot we all want URF back, possibly with One for All Hexakill action....think of the 12 Lux Ults every 16 seconds

I would say Alan Wake, but after 15 or 16 playthroughs it's getting rather uneventful.

#11 Posted by believer258 (13035 posts) -

Minecraft and Skyrim.

#12 Edited by me3639 (2006 posts) -

Company of Heroes, S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Fallout. Anytime i build a new PC, they are the first things to be installed.

EVE. There's always something crazy happening!

#14 Edited by Bollard (6607 posts) -

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Played ~200 hours of the disc based version and another 118 on Steam so far.

That and I can always go back to Super Mario World.

Resident Evil 4 is really good.

I have saves at really specific moments in the game, so whenever I get the urge, I can play the best moments in the game.

#17 Posted by DeadpanCakes (1113 posts) -

Persona 4 and Super Mario World can last me a long time.

#18 Posted by pyromagnestir (4390 posts) -

Spelunky, though I swore off of it a while back so I could actually play other games.

#19 Posted by Dr_Monocle (141 posts) -

I go back and re-play my favorites every couple of years: Metal Gear Solid series, Elder Scrolls series and Xenogears mostly. I also play the Souls series a lot too. Also 4X games are hard to get sick of because it's different each time you play: Civ 5, Sword of the Stars, Endless Space, Sins of a Solar Empire.

#20 Posted by WalkmanBoy (86 posts) -

Hotline Miami. Whenever I'm feeling bored or I'm not sure what game to play I can just dip into it, listen to that soundtrack and try to beat my scores. That game is damn near perfect.

#21 Edited by ArbitraryWater (12967 posts) -

Heroes of Might and Magic, most likely.

#22 Posted by PimblyCharles (1795 posts) -

This is an interesting question. Without thinking too hard about it, my first gut reaction is:

-Just Cause 2 (PC)

-Fallout New Vegas (PC)

-Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, & 3 (NES)

-Captain Skyhawk (NES)

-NBA Jam (any version) even NBA Hangtime (Genesis preferably)

#23 Posted by Counterclockwork87 (939 posts) -

Most sports games. I still play NCAA Football 2005. GTA IV I never get bored with as well, though V kind of ruined that.

#24 Edited by elko84 (1255 posts) -

Civ 5

#25 Posted by FrankNelson (85 posts) -

Super Mario Bros. 2, 3, and New Super Mario Bros. 2 and U. I play at least one every single damn day.

#26 Edited by MURDERSMASH (267 posts) -

Civ 5 and Terraria have way too much play time on my Steam account right now.

I always find myself going back to DOOM as well...been playing it all the way through (without cheat codes for once!) using the Brutal DOOM mod. It's freakin' fantastic.

#27 Posted by PenguinDust (12854 posts) -

Skyrim. I think I have around 450 hours according to Steam. It's the community which keeps the game fresh. There are so many new items, quests, characters, and game changes everyday. I never tire of it because the game is constantly evolving.

#28 Edited by Capum15 (5156 posts) -

Pokemon, Half Life 2, Command and Conquer 3, Mercenaries 2, Ace Combat 6 and Minecraft are the biggest ones I can think of.

Pokemon is just always great, Half Life 2 is basically an annual thing for me, C&C3 is a great C&C game and satisfies any RTS need whenever I get bored of others, Mercenaries is my favorite series and game, Ace Combat 6 whenever I get the urge to fly and be awesome and ride into the danger zone, and then Minecraft is just Minecraft. No quests to worry about, no time limits, just me building stuff, tearing the earth asunder with a pick, or wandering around.

FTB Monster takes like 5 minutes to load but it's great. Thaumcraft is a crazy mod that you can get pretty deep into, and there are other mods compatible with it that make it even deeper.

Spelunky, though I swore off of it a while back so I could actually play other games.

Yep, I did the same thing. I basically had to force myself to stop playing it.

Also, Binding of Isaac.

Resident Evil 4

@arbitrarywater: Heroes is definitely a massive engrossing timesink but you can eventually beat it all theoretically; with my 1000 hours or so played across the series I'd say I'm about another 2000 hours away from doing that. You should try the Expeditions: Conquistadors game that was on sale on gog a few days ago; Heroes + Baldur's Gate + Oregon Trail; though it appears to have an emphasis on exploration over combat.

#31 Posted by Seppli (11233 posts) -

Battlefield. There's so much to master, I never run out of new ways to play, and learning to play that aspect better.

#32 Posted by pinner458 (1061 posts) -

Any Mega Man game, Gears of War 3 multiplayer, Spiderman 3, Bionic Commando 2009. Uncharted 2 + 3, Portal 2, Rotastic, N+, UMvC3, MGS3, Dark Souls, Guitar Hero/Rock Band, Super Meat Boy, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Black Ops Zombies, Infamous 2, any Splinter Cell.

That's just off the top of my head. Those aren't necessarily a list of what I think are the best games of all time but I think it's a pretty great list of games everyone has to play before they die.

#33 Posted by themangalist (1853 posts) -

Age of Empires 2. Killing Floor. yip.

#34 Posted by mikeeegeee (1628 posts) -

I've been addicted to Dota 2 for a year now. I suspect its worse than WoW, which I played for two years, in that there will be no end-game that i'll eventually get fed up with. When I tired with losing, there's the interesting pro scene which just makes me want to play more. Feels a little dangerous.

#35 Posted by Wuddel (2316 posts) -

Civilization (V)

#36 Posted by nasp (602 posts) -

diablo 3,thats not even counting reaper or souls which will make it even better.nba 2k series,fallout new vegas.

#37 Posted by Zeg (136 posts) -

Team Fortress 2. 2000 hours and still even just thinking about it makes me want to play.

#38 Posted by bboymaestro (563 posts) -

I could pop in Persona 4 right now, put in 100 hours, and regret nothing. Also pushing 200+ on Civ 5 BNW.

#39 Posted by zombiepenguin9 (552 posts) -

Skyrim and Sim City 2000.

#40 Posted by impartialgecko (1772 posts) -

Max Payne 2

#41 Posted by TheHT (12670 posts) -

Nothing. The games that held my attention the longest are probably Jedi Outcast (messing around modding the game or just playing in slow-mo with g_saberrealisticcombat 999), Mount & Blade, and Left 4 Dead 1.

But I always get bored of something eventually. Sometimes I'll go back to it later, like Dota 2 or an MMO, othertimes I'll just move on. I'm not big on replaying single-player games, and I like switching up what I'm playing.

#42 Posted by ArtisanBreads (4951 posts) -

There's no game that won't bore me eventually but I do play 2K at least 3-4 times a week for the last 9 years or so. I also go back to Fight Night Round 3 at least once a year.

#43 Posted by GunslingerPanda (5030 posts) -

I dip in and out of Super Mario 3D Land every few months.

#44 Posted by Coafi (1519 posts) -

Spelunky, since there's always something new to see. Gary's Mod, too.

#45 Edited by Aetheldod (3914 posts) -

@capum15: Here here mate!!!! I also play Half Life 2 every year :D , it would be that one for me if it wasnt clear enough.

#46 Posted by Turtlebird95 (3184 posts) -

Mega Man X, Fallout New Vegas, Pokemon, Halo 3... The list goes on.

#47 Posted by Reisz (1608 posts) -

Tenchu Z.

#48 Posted by triplestan (207 posts) -

Mount & Blade, Steam says I've played 152 hours of Warband and I've barely scratched the surface. That and Civ. 5 are the games most likely to make me miss meals.

#49 Posted by jiggajoe14 (1288 posts) -

I can return to super mario world and have the same amount of fun every time I play it.
