Whats your favorite way to handle New Game Plus

Multiple Endings being motivation, tougher enemies, weaker enemies, money/collectables/weapons/armor carry over, different perspectives?

I wish more games had it. So many this gen have the "once is enough" syndrome. To alot of people a game only needs mutiple endings to get more than one playthrough but with youtube that seems less likely. I think almost any game can have NG+. I also though about some cool ways it could be implemented.

Like making toggle on/off options choosing what you want to start over with. You could tip the scales which ever way. A bit of money? A ton? None?

Or have a game end with the "sacrifice" only let the player keep A gun or A piece of armor, at the cost of say something sweet. Or lets say a game like darksiders. If you keep the cross blade you could then since youd be starting with it not have to play said dungeon if you didnt want to and be rewarded with the loot from it when starting

keep character development intact, remixed and harder enemy waves, just like DmC.

Hm, a few ways for me..

1. You become God, basically. The game lets you keep stats/combos items etc. You get to buy items from vendors you shouldn't have been able to for hours, and the vendors and people comment on it. Adds that little something. Like a lot of rpgs do.

2. Play as a different character. I don't know if there any new game +s like this, but taking on the game as the bad guy or just some one new always seemed like a cool idea, though I gueess that would just be a sequel. xD

3. Enemies get tougher. NOT MORE HEALTH/DAMAGE, maybe a little more, but they learn different combos/moves. They are smarter and will heal/help eachother. They use strategy, etc. A few games like this, I like it.


Probably more, but I'm tired.

Pretty much what kungfucolin and Carte360 said..
Also a straight new game plus option as well.

Start with already developed character and items. More difficult.

Something like Mass Effect 1 and Borderlands, where you keep your loot, and continue leveling up.

I just wish you could change your class in ME1 after every NG+. I'm missing most of the achievements, because I never bothered to make a "fresh" character. Once I got the best weapons/mods, I didn't feel like going through the campaign with stock gear again.

Bayonetta style NG+ is the best and my favorite... This is how you do a NG+ and NG++

I thought Dragon's Dogma nailed it.

RDR and Borderlands 2 also do it well

Dragon's Dogma, Bayonetta, Chrono Trigger, and Castlevania's secret characters are my favorite executions.
