OMG, I used to love FRUA back in the day and made a dozen terrible, terrible adventures for it. This was back before the internet exploded, so mercifully I didn't inflict them on anyone. I found the site you mentioned half a dozen years ago and have used it as an example of 'why are they still around'.

 

Which were the ones you made? I may have played them.

I made Masters of the Universe,  the Adventures of Wonder Woman; the Yezukriis series (The Curse of Yezukriis; Yezukriis 2: Goosed by the Geas; Yezukriis 3: Lifestyles of the Lich and Famous; Yezukriis 4: Scandal at Guano Gate),  the Adventures of Maciste, The Whole Armor, and Test of the Paladins - at least these are the ones I remember.

I often find myself going back to Team Fortress 2 quite often.  Despite the current state of the game what with people running waves of bot accounts to grief public servers it still holds up with some of the best shooter gameplay to date.  The game's art, humor, and excellent gameplay still hold up and it's super easy to just drop in for a round or two whenever you want without having to commit to full matches like most modern shooters.

Currently playing on Indomitable as @Zork Nemesis; was a Protector native on live.

Hmmmm, test of the paladins sounds vaguely familiar, I may have played that.

Every now and again, I get the idea in my head to go through all the Lego games, from Star Wars all the way through to... erm whatever the last one was (they get less memorable as the years go by) - Ninjago or something like that. I still have to drag my PS3 out in order to play Lego LOTR. 

And speaking of LOTR, I find myself revisting LOTRO every other year or so, starting a new character and then never getting much past Moria. I was doing it again when returning to COH took my fancy.

I’ve found myself pretty consistently playing through a bunch of the Resident Evil games multiple times a year for the past few years.

 

For games I replay a ton they tend to be games you can get through in a few hours at the most.

Friend and I have been revisiting L4D2 mostly due to him finally getting an internet connection that allowed for it but also prepping should Back4Blood turn out to be good.

During the dark times of no CoH, I logged over 3000 hours in Fallout 4. Grim Dawn also saw an excessive amount of gameplay.

I also reloaded Vamp: The Masq before I even heard a new one was (hopefully) going to be released. Even with the community patch, still so buggy but they nailed the feel of the PnP RPG so well it didn't matter. Come to think on it.... just like Cyberpunk 2077.

Another I love loading up from time to time, Warhammer 40K Dawn of War. I should do that again.

Colonization, Moo2, Civilization.

 

I am replaying Lego Star Wars on the Wii with my wife.

 

Not endless replay, but we love the Nancy Drew games from Her Interactive.  There are about 30 of them and we just replayed them all last year with our daughter.  So we've played each of them 4+ times.

I recently downloaded Galactic Civilizations III.  It looks really cool, and I'm hoping it'll become one of my new favorites.  It's really complex though, and I haven't been able to find a good online tutorial.  Just gonna have to bite the bullet and sit down with it and learn on my own, I guess.

 

Eesh. I played Galactic Civilization (the original) back on OS/2, long before there was a Windows port (or anyone being angry at Stardock for starting to develop for Windows. Object Desktop was much different, too.) The AI was pretty good even then - I was fairly proud of myself for getting a diplomatic victory back then.

 

As far as what I'll tend to go back and replay... hmm.

Command and Conquer 3. (Just the skirmishes, and solo. The campaign got messed up thanks to "balancing" stuff for multiplayer - that didn't affect the AI.) With the remaster of the original C&C and RA, I've been hopping to that a good bit, too.

 

Missionforce: Cyberstorm.  Not *frequently,* but often enough.

 

World Empire V.

 

I *wish* someone would do a remake of Mechwarrior II and Ghost Bears Legacy. Just update graphics, do what's needed so it can run on modern systems, get online play working again, keep the missions going as they were. (And the multiplayer. I want to see if I can take an Elemental to the top of Spire of Destiny and destroy a 100 ton 'mech by dropping on it from 2k up. Sure, it kills ME, too, but...)

 

Same with Syndicate. Cleaned up graphics, widescreen friendly, leave the gameplay.

 

Once I'm in the new place, I'll have to dig out my Myth and Myth II disks - I'm fairly sure a community made graphical update hit those in the last few years, but my disks have been packed away somewhere. They're a great set of games.

Primarily on Everlasting. Squid afficionado. Former creator of Copypastas. General smartalec.

 

I tried to combine Circle and DE, but all I got were garden variety evil mages.

Ah, well Civilization games have great replay value for me.  That's why they've always been on my computers since the original was launched... 30 years ago?  Jeez.

 

Star Wars Galaxies has limited replay values.  One for each class (8).  After that, not so much but it's worth playing for the class stories alone.
