every game that heavily focusses on the story, and very long games such as Xenoblade, 3D Zeldas.
I personally replay 2D Zeldas pretty often, probably because they are more about gameplay than dialogues, and are a lot shorter on average.

Well the obvious Portal comes to mind, however, I've just started Deus Ex Human Revs again and honestly the first time around, I thought that it was a play once game and really it still is. It's a good game and I'm only playing it again because I can't remember most of it, so sadly seemd forgetable too.

Okay, most cinematic games I don't find myself replaying often, but there are games I do find very replayable. I'll give a list of games that I can replay over and over without getting tired of. Top to bottom is the order they are in.
Donkey Kong Country 2
Link to the Past
Super Mario World
Metroid Prime 2
Metroid zero Mission
Paper Mario TTYD
And more from these series.
Here are some that are from these series that it has to have been a while since I played them for me to want to play them again.
Donkey Kong Country
Metroid Prime 3
Metroid Other M
And once again, many more from there. If a game didn't leave a good gameplay impression on me, I don't find myself wanting to replay it. If a metroid game is too cinematic, I find myself not revisiting as much. That goes for most story based games. You don't want to replay the game if you already know what happens. It's like a movie. The Last of Us was one of those that I played once and didn't really want to play again.

Personally, I think that is what separates really good games, from truly great ones.
I'm not sure it's really possible for a game to be truly great, unless it has replayability, IE is fun to actually go back and play through.
