I don’t for you guys, but I need a very serious reason for replaying a game. Even games that have been interesting and entertaining the first time around are not usually able to get me to click “New Game”.
A few recent examples:
Heavy Rain — was great, story was acceptable, the level of suspence was alright and things could have turned out better for the characters at the end. Even so, it was not enough to make me go back try to correct the mistakes I made the first time. I actually caught the killer but lost one of the characters whom I actually liked a lot, because I was not quick enough with the buttons.
