    Because it's so short and has such a brisk pace I replay Suikoden 1 every few years. Final Fantasy 5 also is up there.

    It's an obvious answer, but if you played Earthbound, Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy as a child you'll probably never stop wanting to go back once every few summers or winters

      I played DQ 1+2, and 3 on GBC as a kid and still like to revisit those versions now and then. Especially 3, the GBC remake feels so polished and is definitely one of the best games on the system. The SGB borders for the 1+2 cart are super nice as well.
      3 on GBC might be the best pocket JRPG ever, honestly. The added 1-use quicksave function and ability to quickly load that save when booting up the game really makes it easy to pause while on the go.

      I'm genuinely surprised how much time I've spent on the Pathfinder games. Without looking, I'd have guessed Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 were by far in first place. Then again, I've only had GOG for like 10 years, but I've been playing those for 20.

      I really should give Kingmaker a whirl, it's been sitting in my library for a bit now but I haven't had the energy to fully read into/understand its systems yet and felt intimidated by the character creation and how poorly I felt I understood the combat. It seemed good, but I should probably learn a bit about the tabletop game first I guess, since it's such a direct adaptation of its system.

    I've played Vandal Hearts many times. It's just so wonderfully nice and straightforward.

    NWN and NWN2. The amount of build variety is what keeps me playing.

      I've got NWN2 complete and NWE EE. But I never played either. Should I buy all the modules for NWE EE?

      Ive played NWN nearly every day for the last 3 months and it never gets old. The replayability comes from:

      1) The THOUSANDS of community homebrew modules. Swordflight, Aielund Saga, Prophet, and Honor Among Thieves are incredible.

      2) DND 3.5. It was truly too great to be played on a board, the PC version is the best. Im always excited to try new builds & that was something that happened far less in 2E.

      3) Persistent World Servers

      If you are interested in NWN, I highly recommend skipping OC and doing SoU into HotU

        Everytime I see people rec me this game they always tell me to just play the mods and skip the game proper. Is it really that bad? It always put me off from playing it.

          Yes. Unfortunately what they don't tell you is that storyfagging that is the custom modules doesn't make up for the fact that the gameplay is utter dogshit and a disgustingly clunky janky mess regardless of which module you're in. I'd avoid it entirely if I were you. Look for a game with better gameplay.

            Yeah, I tried playiung NWN2 back in the early 2000s and I found it to be such a shitty janky mess, couldn't get past the first map. I can't imagine how bad the first one is.

              NWN is more polished than its sequel.

              It's an exaggeration but the original campaign suffers from being developed alongside the creator tool. And it is considered a module itself more than a base game, so no reason not to just play a module that interests you more.

      BG1 and 2. I just love how the experience completely and relentlessly taps you into being a protagonist of something a lot bigger than you and really challenges you. It's truly the most intense and daring fantasy life simulation.

      christ, I wish I had the time nowadays to plow through NWN1 and 2 in all its entierty. I did once.

    I'm pretty sure I replayed Fallout 2 at least a dozen times over the years. Sure, 1 was a better onetime experience but seconds a bit more themeparky nature makes it relayable in many different orders and ways of doing things over and over again.
    Warband and CK2 too as well if we count them, especially with still developed mods the replayability is endless

    For me, "replay value" doesn't mean things play out differently every time. It just means the game is fun to play again and again. The Wasteland series, for example, has a fair bit of branching, and I did really enjoy them, but I don't see myself playing them more than once.

      I agree, to me they’re just the most fun to play and I wanna ride the rollercoaster again so to speak.

    In general PS titles but specifically the one i come back to the most is FF IX. Not only it has the most charming story, cast, art and music but it`s absolutely simplistic. I never have to worry about performing boring or tedious tasks you know. Like, whenever i play FF VII i have to mentally prepare in advance to retry the junon march mini game or to play that awful basketball game if i want those two materias early and stuff like that. Whenever i re visit X i have to think about winning that fucking race or dodging the lighting bolts; if i replay Valkyrie profile i have to think on training einherjars exactly right to fulfill the conditions of Odin while making sure i won`t fuck up my chances at ending A. With Chrono cross i have to do all these side quests to get this or that character. FF IX has none of that shit and i love it for it. Closest thing would be to rig the festival of the hunt to get the coral ring early and that`s not even that hard. You just kill the damn thing with Freya. It`s so refreshing.

    BG2 is easily the one i've played the most but I've only played through it twice in the last 15 years, but before that something like 10-15 playthroughs.

    According to steam my most played rpgs since 2010 are New Vegas + PoE1 & 2 at 500 hours each.

    I regularly circle back to Morrowind and Daggerfall (Unity), sometimes modded Skyrim. Fallout NV and Fallout 4 too.
    Games where I can turn my brain off and zoom out or where I can immerse myself.
    My dream game would be blend between Morrwind, NV and Daggerfall where there's AI generated content for some quests and a vast overworld as well as curated bits like guild interactions and handcrafted special dungeons that are like a thread weaving everything together. Like you wouldn't need to craft all NPC houses by hand like in TES games after Daggerfall but it would be neat if they existed and had basic household features that existed in case you wanted to rob it or had a quest there or something.

    It sounds stupid but I always find myself going back to witcher 3. There are so many little things to tweak that I get to thinking "what kinda build do I wanna go for today or what abilities do I think are pretty cool"
    I feel the same way about DAO but I never get around to finishing a playthrough for thst one

      people like you who kept eating the Skyrimslop are the main reason no TES 6 or 7 have been released. Another big reason is the insanely high bar the Witcher series set which probably discouraged them and caused them to scrap the project and go all-in on Starfield.

    Mostly roguelikes.
    Other than that SaGa games, and some dungeon crawlers like Wizardry V/Elminage.
