    And I'm talking non-multiplayer games. Straight up single player with an endgame.

    NES: Super Mario Bros. - Lost count
    PS1: Syphon Filter - 30-40 times
    PC: Quake 2 - at least 50 times, Doom 3 ( non-BFG Ed.) at least 80 times, Bioshock - 10 times, Crysis - 20 times
    Crysis 2 - 10 times.

    A lot of those replays were to bench new hardware and the others were for fun or speed runs.
    Plus I tend to replay every game I own at least 3 times to get my money's worth. (If it doesn't suck that is)

    Single player? I played the Mass Effect series allot. I have 7 playthroughs of ME1, 23 of ME2, 19 of ME3, and 4 or 5 of Andromeda. I don't normally replay single player games through more than once or twice. I probably have finished CoD4:MW at least four or five times. I've gone through Crysis 1 about three times. Most anything else I've enjoyed, I've played through once or twice. The one exception is generally fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, which I've cleared dozens of times each. I haven't done this with each installment, but I have done it with allot of them.

    Most likely one of the iterations of the Civilization series.

    Fallout 3 by a large margin. Roughly 15,000 hours into the game.

    Second in line would be Diablo II. Many a time I played until the early hours of the morning and went into work bleary eyed.

    My gods, you embaress me. I thought I played them too much!

    And that's really my answer. I'd have played ME1 more if the difficulty scaling was as consistent across classes as it is in the sequels and ME:A, and generally when replaying I start a character with ME1 and run it through. For ME:A I ran through the three difficulty levels and have mostly left it alone since.

    These games are like movies and TV series that you watch over and over through the years. They become a part of you.

    [I can't say that I could stand to replay anything else...]

    I played the first and third ones allot more than two. Quake 2 was OK, but seriously overrated.

    Going in somewhat chronological order these are the games I've played too many times to count:

    Super Mario Bros
    Nethack
    Commander Keen(can't recall which ones but I had a couple that I played to death)
    Wolfenstein 3D(even though it always gave me severe motion sickness)
    KOTOR I & II
    Morrowind
    GTA: SA
    VTM: Bloodlines
    Alpha Protocol
    Mass Effect I & II(honorable mention to ME3)
    Deus Ex: HR

    Half Life (1998) probably 8-10 times
    Deus Ex (2000) over a dozen
    Mass Effect (2008) about 10 times
    Mass Effect II (2010) more than ME1.
    Mafia (2002) also at least 10 times.
    Oblivion (2006) I don't know how many times I've taken it to the endgame, but I had at least a 6-8 games that I sank a ton of time into with mods.
    Dragon Age 2 (2009) About 5 or 6 times.
    System Shock II (1999) At least 6 but who remembers exactly.
    XCOM2 (2016) probably 50 new games at least, this is a game I've played far more than any other game ever by at least a margin of 2x or 3x. Although I usually get bored before finishing a campaign and end up starting a new one in the middle.
    Generals Zero Hour (2003) uncountable. the campaign is not that long in it, but I've finished it at least twice with every general, and about a dozen times with some, so overall I must've finished it over 30 times.
    Red Alert (1996) probably in the low two digits.
    GTA:IV over 5 times probably, still my favorite episode of the series.

    It's the other way around. I've played some Q1, but I think it was seriously overrated. While Q2 was extremely underrated. Don't get me wrong. Q1 and Q3 were great as multiplayer, but as single player they were pretty meh, especially 3, as it was only DM against bots.

    I forgot to include F.E.A.R and the expansions in my OP.
    That awesome AI on Extreme kept me coming back at least 20+ times. F.E.A.R 2 maybe 5 times or more. About 3 on the third.

    Mass effect series trumps all for me, closely followed by Fallout 1 & 2 (which I never actually completed)...

    Beginning to end multiple times? Only things in the action RPG Genre.

    Diablo 2
    Titan Quest
    Path of Exile

    Most every other game I’m done after I beat it once.

    Single Player? Might & Magic: World of Xeen hands-down. First beaten in 1993 (I got Darkside as a high school graduation gift, and I already had Clouds) and since beaten again every year or two... And I tend to HATE replaying games. There is something about WoX that makes me want to play it again fairly regularly despite that though.

    I never really understood Quake 2's campaign. It's Quake and I love it but the levels and campaign are structured in a way that never made sense to me. Even after all these years and many hours dedicated to the game, I've never really beaten the whole of it.

    Thank god this ZTN guy made some nice maps to fix id's shit

    Single player games don’t interest me much. So I’ll name a multiplayer game

    Q3A on the DC
    Q3A on PC (UFT mod and RA3)

    That game and it’s multiplayer mods is the best time I’ve ever had in gaming. This was back in like 2000 or 2001.
