Forums - Gaming Discussion - What singleplayer games have you replayed the most times?

Luigi's Mansion: Probably at least 4 times, maybe more.
Sonic Adventure DX: Two playthroughs of the full story.
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle: 2 playthroughs all the way through the Last Story, one where I didn't unlock the last story.

Some little easy games that are crossbuy on Vita/PS4.

Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

Full playthroughs would be Civilization for sure.
Full campaign playthroughs goes to Dune 2.
Non strategy would be Journey, but that's quite short and technically not single player.
Actually I've probably driven Outrun from start to finish quite a few more times.
I've replayed Wolfenstein 3D and Doom quite a few times as well back in the past.

New games are simply too long to replay. I still haven't finished Horizon FW, still loving it. But zero incentive to ever start another 3 month play through lol.

Of course if it counts, Tetris wins over all else.

Super Mario Bros. 1
Super Mario World
Chrono Trigger
Legend of Zelda 1
Tales of Symphonia
Prersona 5/Persona 5 Royal
Breath of the Wild

Probably some SNES titles from my childhood that I still play today, like DKC 3, Super Mario World and Yoshi's Island

I have a Youtube channel... A Twitter, and... Yeah.

For games where counting completions is easy, Metal Gear Solid 2 is probably number one, followed by Metal Gear Solid 4. That said, I played MGS4 like seven times the in what was probably a few weeks when it was released and have touched it only a few times after that, so it gets kind of an unfair advantage.

Grim Dawn and Titan Quest are some of the more ambiguous games. I've completed those games probably more times than MGS2 and MGS4... if we count completions on different difficulty levels. However, because replaying the game on a different difficulty level with the same character is a natural progression in those games, I always feel uneasy counting different difficulty levels as different completions.

Other honorable mentions would probably include Half-Life 2 and the first episode of the original Doom as well (curse you, Bethesda, for releasing another game with the same name!).

Likely MegaMan X...

Maybe Chrono trigger or dark souls, I can finish both games in 5-7h, 2h for MMX...

Anyway, I beat all these games +15 times, easy.

GoTY 2022:

Of the top of my head, Final Fantasy 4 and the first Mass Effect come to mind.

Probably Soul Reaver, Shadow Man, Ocarina of Time, Ultimate DOOM, DOOM II, Final DOOM, DOOM 64, Duke Nukem 3D, BLOOD, HeXen, Heretic, Unreal, Castlevania, Contra, Mega Man X4, Metroid Prime, Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Nearly 101st time replayed starting from the 90s.(But except for Shadow Man, which i replayed it 12 times on the different consoles)

Punch-Out!! Hundreds of times beaten

Every 2D Metroid prior to Dread at least 20 times each. I have beaten Dread 5 times since it came out. Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 must be in the tenths too.

Twilight Princess, Golden Sun 1 and 2 and Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and CoM at least 10 times each

Pokémon Gold/Crystal, Pokémon Ruby/Emerald and Pokémon HeartGold about 3-5 times each

Xenoblade Chronicles 4 times (one for each version of the game)

Undertale 4 times (PC english, PC spanish, PS4 and Switch)

Bayonetta 2 4 times (2 on Wii U, 2 on Switch)

Final Fantasy VIII 3 times (2 on PS1, 1 on Switch)

Metroid Prime Trilogy 3 times

By far its Resogun, I must have replayed it around 50x already and I still want to get to the top 10 world records. The most addictive game ever created, sometimes I wish I never discovered that game as it takes so much of my time.

But if we are talking mainstream single player games, that will be the very first tomb raider, finished it around 20x, not because it was a great game, but because back then games were shorter and also because I was a kid with no money to buy games so I was stuck on the same game for months until I could afford another.

If we talking games from the past 20 years, I'd say Halo, Alan Wake, The Darkness or Max Payne 3, I've played each at least 5x
