I dont think its possible to accurately tally up the thousands upon thousands of hours spent playing video games in my lifetime. Ive owned fourteen platforms in my time and have quite literally poured my heart and soul into all of them. There have been games Ive given weeks or months of my life to, and others that Ive offered a mere glance to, before packing them back into their case, never to be played again.
Retrospectively, Ive bought or been given games that unbeknown to me Id still be playing time and again, many years later. What might seem the most ordinary of titles could prove to be a hidden gem for me, and Ill revisit it once every so often. Conversely, a title could be so superb in all aspects possible, that it makes clear sense that Id want to experience it several times over. Here are five of the games I just cant help but go back to.
