Twice as nice (games I have played thru more than once)
When Giant Bomb decided that Sanits' Row the Third was going to be their game of the year for 2011, it got me thinking about what truly makes a game good and memerable. What was supprising about Saints' Row, was that the game was only given a 4/5 star rating on the site. With several other games on the site given 5 stars, why was the 4 star game chosen.
I came to the conclusion that while some games might fundmentaly be better than others, I think there is merit to games that are, for lack of a better word, "fun enough" to warrent multiple play throughs. I have created a list of games that I can remember playing multiplie times from start to finish. Like are said, there there was just something about these games, the story, ganeplay, or the experience, that made playing them again more fun than simply buying a new game.
