i have noticed alot of posts on the boards that people say things like "once you beat it there is no replay value" and stuff like that...so i was curious what games do you have that really never get old?

****besides halo of course

only one i have is Hunter the reckoning...i must be crazy but this game really doesnt get old, especially with some buddies and some brew....

If it's multiplayer where you play against your buddies, it's hard to get old. A lot of single player games though get old real fast, just because once you play the game, you know what will happen.

So if you want single player games that don't get old...one that I'm liking right now still is DTR. I played through it twice and probably will play through it again later. But it's still hard to find a lot more replay value out of a single player game than a multiplayer game (especially with Live coming out soon)!

Sport Games ... like Madden, NFL 2K3, NBA 2K3 and (soon) Tiger Woods Golf. These games all have very high replay value.

If you like sports, that is. If you don't like sports, then HALO it is.

TimeSplitters2, which I don't think is really a "great" game, does have several simulated dethmatch areas against bots ... but I don't know how long that will remain entertaining.

Speaking of sports games, this year I believe that SEGA finally topped EA in football and basketball. After many, many Madded games, NFL 2K3 now has better grafice (check out the player faces and expressions) ... and wait until you see the replays on NBA 2K3 ... outstanding.

I keep coming back to SSX Tricky. Something my friends and I have done is play the Garibaldi stage (over and over and over) 1 player on showoff (the mode with all the point multipliers) and see who gets the highest score. Currently I have 2,511,000 but the highest amount humanly possible seems to be around 2,700,000.

TS2 won't prolly get old anytime soon with all the unlockables and customizable multiplayer options, at least it'll tide me over until I can get my greedy hands on Mechassault and UC.

Thats easy, Halo. Eventually we'll stop playing it (around XBOX 3 or so..) and there will be newer games. But as long as you have friends, 4 XBOXs, and HUBS with cables... it is going to be REAL hard to get tired of it.

I still play Halo on-line daily...I love this game...I've never played a game so long and kept such a high level of interest for so long and for playing it as much as I do. In fact, I love Halo so much, I may purchase another copy just for the hell of it :D

Perfect Dark for N64 never got old for me. I love that game. I hope Perfect Dark Zero is just as fun if not more. I wanna buy a N64 now so I can get Perfect Dark.

I want to jump around and break my N64, it was fun, but now that I got XBOX, bashing my N64 is the funnest thing I can do with it...:D

Halo's multiplayer with 4 or more people is good, but with any less it will very fast...and the single player got old while I was playing it...


Pagan: Ultima VIII - Greatest game ever. I got it in 94 or 95 when I got my first PC, and I still play it today, only because it's amazing.

Morrowind will NEVER get old.

NHL Hitz hasnt gotten old yet, especially with 3 people playing.

Didn't see that one coming. ;)


I like StreetFighter, but i suck at the games. I would always crouch down as the fat guy int he corner and keep thrusting my arms out and nobody would be able to hit me without getting hurt worse than they hit me. :D

Personally, I think every fighting game gets old too quickly, except the games at the arcade...Soul Calibur, Tekken 4, Marvel vs. Capcom, Tekken Tag, etc.

Why is it that if you have to pay to play a game, you always like it more than if it was free? :confused:

LMAO!! E.Honda? That's hellarious.

What the hell are you guys talking about? You think fighting games get old? That's pathetic :rolleyes: Fighting games have the best replay value old of every type of game. RPG's get old the fastest.

I agree, there's barely any moves in that game. The rounds are the same over and over. But I still love the game. What they should have done was made every peice of enviroment interactive.

The only reason why I get tired of it, is because I beat everyone at it!:D

Its not really that, its also because you're guys always fall on the ground no matter what hit basicly. So then you need to back up ( your friend kicks you're ass if you back up ) or you need to kick low/med/up so you can get back up ... usualy thats not hard to block....

Also, the combos in that game is poor. I don't know man I could bash this game for hours.

I want capcom vs snk 2 now!

Goldeneye by far. We played that game 3 years straight at least every other weekend. Never got tired of it. It's in fact the only reason I kept my N64 for 3 extra years.

Goldeneye is the only reason i got an n64 ... but then i played halo... went back to goldeneye and i just couldn't even look at it anymore.

Seriously... goldeneye for me is just dead and pathetic now.

I like DOA3 because of the reversal system, better than Tekken's or every other game's of just holding one direction to block...

I never got tired of thinking Goldeneye sucks...i just hate that game...

Halo may be the best MULTIPLAYER game for Xbox, but its single player is not worth playing twice. Morrowind is the best SINGLE PLAYER game for the Xbox, hands down.

Fighting games are the most primitive form of game thus they will always get old fast. Everything between builds up to an RPG. RPG's therefor should never get old.

The onlyt bad thing is that nobody knows what the hell an RPG really is...people calling Shenmue 2 an rpg should be shot...thats an action/adventure game, just like Max Payne and all the other games like that...but i dont like those games because 99% of them lack any form of replay value...some are good, but most are worth playing once or twice at most.

Probably besides Halo...Max Payne...the bullet time gameplay is outstanding and even though the game is linear, the bt element is done so well, I find myself loading my quicksaves over and over just to replay what I've done over and over...

The team that I made is absolutely hilarious. I have a Horsehead named Mr. Marbles and a Snowman named Billy Bob...classic.

Oh, and the goalie fights ;P :eek: The best hockey game out...til Sega's at least...I just wish Midway would go XBL :(

The games I will forever love and play to death are

GoldenEye, Hitman 2, Perfect Dark, Max Payne, Conker's BFD, Halo, CounterStrike, TS2, Contra, and DrMario (I'd buy a Gamecube if Dr.Mario went online because I've never met a person better than me at Dr.Mario).

As long as Unreal Championship aims well with the control, it's going up there too.
