Here are eleven awesome games with excellent replay value, which you can enjoy over and over again.
Ranked in no particular order. This list will include one game per franchise and a few underappreciated but excellent games.
Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas is one of the greatest role-playing games ever, and it offers excellent replay value. You can be whatever you want in this game. You can be a saint for the people of the Wasteland. But no one is stopping you from becoming the most feared man in the entire Mojave either. There are a ton of ways to complete each quest. And the amount of choices you have to make is intense. Each and every playthrough will feel fresh. You can also add various awesome mods to improve your experience.
If you like Fallout New Vegas, you might like Fallout 3 and 4 as well. Check them out too.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Got another classic here. It’s hard to find a gamer who hasn’t played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Skyrim is considered by many to be one of the greatest fantasy role-playing games ever created. The seemingly endless replay value of the game earns it nothing but more praise.
Fighting dangerous foes while exploring the beautiful and cold province of Skyrim, discovering more and more new locations with each playthrough, and trying other playstyles for a completely different gameplay experience are only a few traits of Skyrim’s greatness.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Anniversary Edition includes a decade’s worth of content on PC and consoles. Check out Oblivion and Morrowind too. They are also very impressive RPGs with tons of hours of gameplay.
Grand Theft Auto V
Like Skyrim, there are no gamers who haven’t heard of Grand Theft Auto V. It’s one of the greatest open-world games ever created, and there really isn’t much I can tell you about it other than what everyone already knows.
The beautifully created city and countryside, the magnitude of hidden content and details, the number of vehicles you can choose to drive and the countless fun activities all throughout San Andreas are a few of the reasons why GTA V is so good.
Be sure to check out GTA San Andreas and GTA 4 if you like GTA V.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Another masterpiece by Rockstar Games, Red Dead Redemption 2 is set in 1899 America. This game is even more detailed and packed with secrets than GTA V. The main story of RDR2 is brilliant. You’ll replay the immersive and cinematic missions over and over again. The graphics are hypnotizingly beautiful as well.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition
BioWare’s Mass Effect games are some of the greatest RPGs ever created. While the game is not completely open-world, it’s still packed with secrets, side quests, combat encounters, easter eggs, and a lot more. You can spend more than 200 hours if you aim to fully experience the game. There’s a remastered version known as Mass Effect Legendary Edition available, which includes all three games.
Forza Horizon 5
It won’t be a lie if Forza Horizon 5 is called the greatest current racing game. There are a multitude of vehicles to choose from, ranging from compact cars to off-road beasts. Exploring Mexico with your customized ride will never get old. There are a ton of side quests, secrets, and beautiful locations to find. You will probably sink more than a hundred hours into this game, minimum.
It’s available on Xbox Game Pass. Read this article for more info: https://gamefreaks365.com/forza-horizon-5-gta-san-andreas-and-more-coming-soon-to-xbox-game-pass/
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
Considered to be the greatest video game ever by a lot of gamers, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt remains one of the giants in the open-world genre. This game’s world is hand-crafted. With unmarked locations with lore tidbits and a ton of side quests that are as good as the main story, The Witcher 3 immerses players in a memorable and beautiful world. The game of the year edition is great because the two masterful DLCs are included in it. You will play this game for hundreds of hours even before reaching NG+.
We recommend that you check out CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 too.
The Yakuza franchise
Set in modern-day Japan, this franchise is all about the Japanese mafia, as the name implies. The themes and topics of the story are very serious and sometimes philosophical, but the gameplay is goofy and funny. You can explore towns based on real-life locations in Japan and you can even visit real Japanese restaurants in-game. It’d be a terribly long list if I included the things that can be experienced in the world of Yakuza, so I’ll just say that the Yakuza experience is uniquely wonderful and that you’ll not notice how many hours you’ve sunk into the game while being completely immersed.
There’s an order to play the Yakuza games. Start with Yakuza 0, then Kiwami 1 and 2, then the remastered collection, then Yakuza 6, and finally Yakuza 7.
Elden Ring and the Soulsborne franchise
Have you ever watched some movie and thought to yourself: “Gosh, I wish I could play as that character in a game?” Well, in Elden Ring and the Dark Souls games, you can create the strong warrior or mage you always wanted to play as. Elden Ring lore is some of the best lore in game history. The combat is brutally punishing but rewarding. I can’t recommend these games enough. I have more than 170 hours of playtime in Elden Ring alone, and I still haven’t finished the game even once.
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
This might be a surprising entry for a list like this but bear with me for a moment. Everyone knows that Halo has some of the greatest single-player campaigns ever in video game history. These are memorable and extremely enjoyable missions that never got old. They’re also games with excellent replay value.
Well, in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, there are playlists made for you to replay various missions and earn scores. You can add different elements to the missions as well – like more enemies, for example. Halo MCC is a game with hundreds of hours worth of playtime, and these playlists and accessible mission replays allow for even more gameplay.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
Metal Gear Solid V is mainly a stealth-action game. Unlike the previous MGS games, MGS5 is open-world, allowing for a multitude of ways to complete missions. This game offers complete freedom for an action game fan. The game has the vibe of an ’80s movie as well. You can drive vehicles, man guns, destroy enemy outposts with tanks and explosives, capture rare animals and complete various side mission, and more.
