A Game’s Not Great Until You Own 3 Copies of It

It seems to me we’ve stumbled upon a new era. Without even realizing it, a new criteria for game love has appeared. Though really, it isn’t all that new. It’s something that did happen before, once ports started becoming prolific, but now that we’re heading into the midst of the digital era, we’ve reached a point where the best way to determine the value and merit of a video game isn’t based upon review scores or peer pressure.

It’s how often you’re willing to buy it.

I thought I was the only crazy bastard. It prevents me from trying other rpgs, but I think I rather get stuck with the same old than to try a new rpg I may never like.

I'd buy Persona 3 over and over again as well. Even though I've done EVERYTHING in the game, I still feel like playing it again. And by everything, I SERIOUSLY mean EVERYTHING.
I have Persona 3 and Persona 3: FES on my PS2. I got it as a PS2 Classic from the PS Store for my PS3, I also own Persona 3 Portable. I don't have a Vita but when I do get it, Persona 4 will DEFINITELY be my first Vita game.

I bought an extra copy of FFXII once just because it came in a steel case.

I bought Plants vs Zombies three times before I even made it through the entire campaign (Vita version is the tops imo).

I think it is a testament to the game if we're willing to repeatedly spend money on it. Repeated playthroughs are also a good measure.
