    My dad was cleaning out the basement and found my Nintendo 64 a few days ago. I only had 3 games for it ever but I played my two favorites: Toy Story 2 and Rugrats in Paris. I remember from 10 or so years ago playing these games on the weekends and having amazing fun. I rediscovered this fun playing it for the second time.

    Do you guys have any games that you've played that you came back to a long time later and had the same or even more fun the second time around?

    A few more for me:

    Spider Man 2. I'm sure almost everyone who played agrees it is not the average movie game. I played this again not long ago and had a complete blast. It was so great and I feel like I could explore that virtual New York city forever.

    Marvel Ultimate Alliance. This may surprise some people but I had a whim that I could play this game again in a way that I would not get bored. Mainly just as procrastination from my project, I popped the game in and played where I would change characters at every opportunity and I was going to put different characters in the team each time I switched. So I played with every single character a few times and decided who I liked and didn't and experienced all of the conversation codecs. It was really great.

    Call of Duty 4. This one is pertaining to the multiplayer. After months of MW2 madness with the never relenting storm of Commando knifers, One Man Army/Danger Close noob tubers, AC-130s and Chopper Gunners, and Quickscoping masters, I felt a change of pace would be nice and went back to COD 4 for a bit. I got to the top 3 every Free for all match and almost always was number one in team games. I was amazed that MW2 somehow made me better at CoD 4 and I welcomed the lacking of the brokeness that plagues a would-be-good game. I was so eexcited to play Search and Destroy without heartbeat sensors.

    Driver for the Gameboy Color. I was never able to pass the 3rd mission on the GBC version as a younger child although I loved the free roam mode. I picked this up on a road trip recently and played it til the end unlocking all cars, cheats, and game modes. On the PC I finally beat the dreaded training mission in the beginning and got into the meat of the game. Both experiences were surreal and great fun.

    So does anything stand out to you guys that you can remember playing twice and loving both times?

    I'm currently replaying Pokemon Gold on my old gameboy color after being sick of the franchise for almost 9 years, I googled all the games that had come up since then and I'm currently hooked

    I also got tired of the MW2 cheatfest and picked up CODWAW again. I'm having a good time doing the competitive coop again.

    Psychonauts: I got this back when it first came out as an Xbox exclusive and played it on my uncle's console. I loved it so much, so charming and funny and fun. I got it for my PS2 when it came out for it a few months later. I've started playing it again recently off Steam and I think i love it even more this time. There's so many great details in this game, it's gotta be the most fun I've ever had in a single player game.

    Halo 3: This is mostly for the Multiplayer. When my uncle was going back to College he shacked up with us for awhile. We played this hours straight and had such a great time. I played it again recently with some friends and remembered how much I love this game. So much more entertaining than MW2 IMO. Think I may just need to get a 360 and LIVE account just for Reach now.

    I've replayed Megaman X1-6 and Megaman Zero 1 at least twice each, probably more like 3-4 times for the first three X games, and not as much for the latter three only because I had played them more recently. They're all still great games, even if the X series does flounder a bit as it goes on.

    I keep trying to boot up Final Fantasy VII and VIII again, but I always get sidetracked by various things.

    I rarely play through games more than once. I get bored easily doing similar things even during the first play through. There are a few that I love so much that even playing the same thing over and over cheers me up.

    The Few single player games I love enough to play through a lot:
    The Genesis Sonic The Hedgehog games - I keep buying collections and digital releases and play through them.
    Nights Into Dreams
    Super Mario World and 64
    Metal Gear Solid 1 and 3
    Jet Set Radio
    Resident Evil 2 and 4
    Call of Duty 1(PC) and 2(PC and 360)
    Mass Effect 1 and 2
    Halo and Halo 3:ODST (I've tried going through 2 and 3 but I can never be bothered to complete them)

    Those are all of the games I've ever beaten more than once and loved them as much as I did the first time I played them.

    As for Multiplayer titles
    Battlefield 1942 - I never get tired of this game
    Battlefield Bad Company 2
    CoD:MW2 - the first CoD MP game that I was decent at, even if I was a knifing tool
