    Man, I loved Shadows of Memories. I remember walking to the mall to purchase at EB Games way back when for my PS2 for $40 (the story really intrigued me). Now I can't wait for Murdered: Soul Suspect which looks to be somewhat similar.

    I am kinda disappointed not to see Devil May Cry on here seeing as there are usually 6-8 playthroughs to the games...

    I found just cause 2 good after i finished it (twice) since just like gta5, you get a bunch of cash and can explore the world alot more eg racing on bandah selekeh, visiting the mile high club and even going to the presidents fortress. Very good.

    Im so glad they put borderlands 2 in here. I have played that game over and over and I still am.not bored with it. Its in my top five favs of all time. UVHM is hard as hell at times by yourself especially in the dlc but soooo much fun and when you have characters like tiny tina mr torgue mad moxxi and claptrap to entertain you it makes the experience even better

    If Shadow of Memories makes the list based on storytelling technique, then 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors - and, even more so, it's sequel, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last reward - definitely need to be on here... both because of their amazing stories with shocking plot twists, alternate dimensions, deep characters and several endings, though only one "true" ending per game. I can highly recommend these games to everyone - apart from "TL;DR"-people, as they are rather text-heavy.

    How did Dishonored not make this list? That game can be played multiple ways after beating it with different powers each time.

    I've put about 300 hours into Dark Souls and still haven't tried NG+ beyond the Asylum. I am too obsessed with getting as best value out of my playthroughs as possible before moving on (farm, max upgrade everything, etc.). Really need to just move on with one of my characters.. but man, I still have a lot more builds to try, I don't know when I'm going to move on.. Overall, really one of my favorite games. Such a shame Demon's Souls is PS3 only; I may never get to play it..

    I do need to play-through Dark Souls even though the difficulty is soul breaking beyond belief.
  • Clovin64 - November 9, 2013 2:15 a.m.

    I agree with the Dark Souls mention, but not for the reasons you stated. After all, that tension and fear you feel in your initial playthrough is what makes the world so entertaining and compelling to explore. Its like when you and a buddy explored dark forests as kids, even though it was getting pretty late and dark, you still just wanted to push through and explore the woods a little more. I think the real joy of Dark Souls NG+ (and NG++, and NG+++, and NG++++...) is getting stuck into the online multiplayer aspect. Getting your characters stats just right, creating the perfect build, getting the best equipment all to prepare for some PvP back-stab-happy duels. Helping out other players on tough battles you initially had lots of trouble with is also a pretty darn good feeling. Then you experiment with the different guilds.

    Platinum'd/100% Lego Lord of the Rings, every Pokemon game excluding all Gen V games, every Castlevania game (including the unmentionably horrid N64 entries) (Symphony of the Night is also the easiest Castlevania game ever), Borderlands 2, Super Mario 3D Land, and Rocksteady's Arkham series. Booyah.

    Gonna have to try Shadow of the Memories if I can get the chance. Great article and it's always fun when even after the main game you still have more to do. Super Mario 3D Land especially, what it did was a really good idea except that 3D Land relied on to the point where it wont be satisfying at all without it instead if extra, like Mario Galaxy 2's Green Stars treasure hunt, the game was already satisfying with the end of the main part and special world but the Green Stars added more icing to make it more tasty.

    No Wonderful 101? How else are you gonna unlock Wonderful-Bayonetta, Jeane, and Rodin?
  • shawksta - November 8, 2013 4:58 p.m.

    This One conceptional problem about W101 is that it's not a game that you can just beat the single player and call it quits. It's, like much of platinums other games, an arcade type game, you just keep coming back and essentially in a game where the controls need learning, finding yourself dominating past stages you had massive trouble with and as you said those extra unlockable characters

    What, no Fallout 3? Discovering every location, finding every skill book, magazine, and bobble head, not to mention the remarkable amount of side and unmarked quests. So many location in the game had little stories to themselves, told through terminals and messages found through the location, and non of it ever actually listed in your quest tab. Not to mention that most of the locations in Fallout 3 were actually interesting locations to visit, and had substance to them unlike New Vegas, where most locations were just small shacks, or big fields of absolutely nothing and served no purpose. Fallout 3 had a soul that New Vegas lacked.
  • GR_AndyHartup - November 8, 2013 2:22 p.m.

    Well, technically, you can't play Fallout 3 after it ends. You need to get the Broken Steel DLC to carry on...
  • Bloodstorm - November 8, 2013 7:27 p.m.

    Yeah, but you can't even find a version of the game that comes without Broken Steel anymore, so it's kind of a moot point.
  • Superdude576 - March 16, 2014 10:47 a.m.

    I loved New Vegas. The locations weren't always the best, but it was incredibly deep. It has do many quests, them you have the dlcs! It's a top notch take on RPGs. I hope the next Fallout is like Vegas... minds the endless empty and glitch inh
  • ObliqueZombie - November 8, 2013 9:34 a.m.

    It's always hard for me to continue a game once I've beaten it... well, if the game has some super "you saved the world" business and then all of a sudden it's back to normal. That's why I only ever finished Skyrim once, and that was when I was goooood and ready. But NG+ is where it's at for me. My brain doesn't reject the illogical "you saved the world, good job, now be normal" effect some games have, and more often than not, I enjoy NG+ more. If I could on my hands how many times I've beaten Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal, I'd have weird looking hands.
