What Makes You Play It Again

GameMatris said, "Another afternoon and there isn’t much to do. Yes you can go to a near store and pick a new game but there are some free options! You can play ‘X’ again… Nah i mean it was a good game but not for playing again!
So, What makes players to play a game over and over?" (Dev, Industry, Mobile, PC, PS3, Xbox)

After reading the article Among Friends by Digital Foundry

I decided to replay Uncharted 2 & 3 and savor the technical magic of Naughty Dog's flagship games, marveling at their advancement of video games as a whole.

Its the appreciation of people's work that make me go back playing their games again and again.

Being a Sega Genesis & PS One gamer I really appreciate it when people push the limits of what are known to be "inferior" machines and squeeze out potential & achieve some really good to see unexpected stuff.
Limit Breaks are what I call them.

These games pushed the hardware limits & imagination of game makers
Gunstar Heroes
Shinobi III
Chrono Trigger
Sonic the Hedgehog
Streets of Rage 2
Yu Yu Hakusho Makyo
Thunder Force III

Dino Crisis 2
Resident Evil 1 & 2
Chrono Cross
Super Robot Wars Alpha

Sonic Unleashed coz its challenging
Uncharted 2&3 coz they are beautiful
Killzone 3

I keep going back to Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation too
these are games I have played countless time again & again

my most anticipated games are

Phantasy Star Online 2 MMORPG
The Last of Us
Ni No Kuni
Beyond: Two Souls
The Last Guardian
FF Versus XIII
Dragon's Crown
COD Black Ops II

There is a certain feeling you get when you've played a game you love or once you've finished that game. It's hard to describe with words.

In fact , words can't do it justice. There is just this feeling about a game that you know you loved it.

With me and those games, I don't want to ever lose that feeling by playing it too much and having it wear out it's welcome.

Games Like that I usually wait a few years to play again so that I have forgotten parts and some of it is new to me again.

I can't stand when everything is predictable.
