    What games have you gone back and replayed. I would think this is the hallmark of a great game- something you did, finished, and then, after awhile, return to.

    I have been doing Half-Life one again- just got through the second run in with the female assassins. The tentacle in the silo- one of the best parts.

    Also I replayed Quake 2.

    Of course Fallout series.

    Just about to reinstall Thief Gold and Thief II, give those another go through (and keeping an ear out for Lohan's voicework). After that, I might play through System Shock 2 once more.

    Just complete Sam & Max, since it had been long enough since the last time I played it that I had forgotten the solutions.

    The games I replay often are:
    Fallout 1 & 2, Startopia, Pharaoh, and Stronghold.

    I've played several games twice - especially in the old days, when all I had was copied diskettes of Wolfenstein 3D, Prince of Persia and Leisure Suit Larry in The Land of the Lounge Lizards.

    The only game that I keep on playing, for years in a row now, at least several times a month, is Europa Universalis II. I've played every country twice, and I keep close tabs on the development of AGCEEP and other great mods.

    Sometimes I crack open System Shock 2, or Half Life. (or FOT :look:) I'm going to play Black & White after I get around to formatting my computer and installing win2000.

    I'm almost constantly replaying Fallout and Fallout 2.
    Right now I'm playing through Dungeon Keeper 2 again.
    I have played a lot of System Shock 2 lately as well.
    I frequently revisit Master of Orion 2 when I'm bored of my current games.
    I occasionaly play through Arcanum again, if I can get through the game's combat.
    There are a few others, but I can't think of them right now.

    It's really not to bad. The last few missions look overwhelming, but if you start small, their all beatable. The challenge is half the fun.

    I agree but they took so damn long as it was all tactics and no running up and shooting stuff for fun.
