Whats Missing from the GAMES !!!

Heres what I think the biggest crime of the modern gamming era is ..While the new age of games have improved in all areas except 1

What ever happened to REPLAY VALUE !?!

just a reminder to the younger players that back in the DAY as they say some of the most played games DIDNT END ! thats right no ending and we played the hell out of them for YEARS not just while the new system was hot or cool ! Thats why ppl talk so lovingly of their 8-bit and Older systems WE HAD GAME ! and any Vet.game player from thoose days would LOVE to THROW down to a game of PONG or STREET FIGHTER 2 over and over ..

Hell I see funner flash games with crap graphics then the latest HOT TITLE !

How many of the new games are the kind you want to own to play over and over ?
Not too dam many lately its more of a fact that you cant rent the game long enough to beat it so you end up buying it beating it and then shelfing it because while you liked the game NO WAY are you going through THAT again !!

Dam shame !

This shite has to change !! and it will as places like Block Buster etc. make renting games easier and more afordable ..

So Heres to ATARI ! and the return of the GAME if it ever happens ..

Well, They do that so you'll buy more games.. If they did it like the old days, then you wouldn't need a new game untill you burned out the last one--Literally-.. They don't make the big bucks that way..

If anyone remembers, I only really play the old games like Centipede and Pacman. However, something I always look for in a game is replay value. Conkers Bad Fur Day is one of the best games for replay, because of the multiplayer action. Bots are so hard to come by nowadays in a good game console.

But even the story line mode is nice on the game, full of humor and fun.

I think I'll stick to those kinds of games. One of us should write hasbro or someone and tell them to bring back old school gaming. I would, but ya know, I'm american, so I'm overweight and lazy.

i'll play a game again if i thought it was really fun/amazing. In my eyes, replay value includes the general awesomeness of the playing experience, not just multiplayer and unlockables and such.

i tend to most consistently replay games that give you different endings and different extras depending on how fast you beat it, on what difficulty you beat it, or by what path you take to beat it. For instance, in The Suffering, I chose not to mow down any guards, innocents, or people trying to help me, and I got the "good" ending. I'm going to go through it again now, and kill everyone I see, just to see what the "bad" ending is like.

I'd say that overall, puzzle games have the highest replay value. Tetris isn't going anywhere...

The Thief series has always had a pretty high replay value. At the end of each level they tell you how many secret doors you discovered from the total, how much loot out of the total possible you got, how many bodies were discovered, how many times you were spotted, etc. There's always the push to excell, to beat your own score...see if you can actually pull the game off at higher difficulty ratings, etc.

The Silent Hill series has alternative endings, but I never manage to keep up enough enthusiasm to get all of them, I just lose interest...
