Best Incentive to make you replay a single player game?

Different approaches, lots of unlockables, varied gameplay, different difficulties that aren't cheap.

Resident Evil 4 is the ultimate single player game IMO. It has everything you could possibly want. But with DLC now a single player game with this scope and variation is pretty much out of the question out of the box.
PLAYING - Sleeping Dogs (360), Borderlands 2 (360), Resident Evil 6 (360)
MOST WANTED - FFvrsXIII, GTAV, ZombiU, Ni No Kuni, Tales Of Xillia, Lightning Returns

In all honesty, game length. I can't replay a game if it's more than, say, 30 or 40 hours.

Different paths / solutions - Mass Effect and Dragon Age both good for this.

NG+ - Best NG+ I've done was Nier as they fleshed the story out even more, let you know what the shades were thinking before Nier comes and busts them up - which changes the tone of the hero vs bad guy dynamic a lot.

Achievements - If a game is reasonably good, and I don't have much else to play, I'll replay a game to get another achievement.

Genuine open-ended gameplay, or just that it was damn fun. I don't mind a good alternate path replay, but I can't do the standard Bioware good/bad thing - I just don't enjoy the story as much when it's not fresh and just picking the opposite response each time isn't enough to keep me going.

I can see myself replaying Dishonored, for example, a LOT.

alternative paths are too much for me in the first run, if i were to replay a game, it would be for the gameplay and experience of the whole game
The Metal Gear Series is probably the best games ever made.

If you can unlock little bonuses like costumes or characters or items or play styles or whatever depending on how you played or which difficulty and all that jazz, then I'm much more likely to replay it.
