Remember when you were a kid and you could replay a game multiple times no problem? Just because it was fun? How come I'm hearing so many games have no replay value? From my own experience I know this isn't true. I'm replaying Anarchy Reigns right now, even though reviews said it had no replay value. Like hell! It's fun, therefore it can be played again and again. RPGs can be played again for their stories, case in point FFXIII. I thought that was a great game, with cool environments, and it has content to go back and try for. Can you really say that all these games being released you're content with playing just once during your whole life?
I think people beat games in the past because they were fun, not hard. We beat hard games to see the ending so that we could prove we have skill (retelling the ending was our proof). Then games came along had optional hard bosses where beating them and having a cleared file was proof of your mastery. Now we have trophies that prove this for us. Once you get your cred ... what more do you need?

It's probably because i am an adult with a job and other responsibilities. I feel like i am wasting my time if i replay a game again. When i was a kid i was always bored and didn't have the resources to buy new games so i replayed the games i had.
I'm on my second Tomb Raider 2013 playthrough. Its my favorite game this gen.
See, I'm about to replay that in a bit too, it was great. People are cool with replaying older games that have a good amount of length to them still to this day, but it seems that they just complain and never wanna replay anything these days. **** makes sad
