the sims. i always find myself going back to play it whether it be after short or long breaks without fail. it's a game with such good replay value that i've been playing in phases for around 18 years or so.

Uh, this is a tough decision. Majority of my gaming time has been spent on 4 specific gaming franchises: Sim City, Civilization, Pokemon, and The Sims.

I'd probably have to go with Sim City 4 Deluxe. I'm just a huge nerd when it comes to building cities in it and I can use the same terrain to come up with different layouts every time I decide I want to wipe a city and rebuild.

Granted, ask me again in 4 months and I might answer with a different one of these 4 games. My desire to play these games is fairly cyclical.

C&C Red Alert 2, if I have to I'm playing a game with tons of mods avalible to it and with a decently healthy online playerbase.

Could also go with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but RA2 defined me more than CS ever will do

Probably Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. I've played it so many times and I never get sick of it. I'm pretty sure I could find plenty of ways to challenge myself if that was all I was allowed to play forever. :x Although it would probably make more sense to pick something procedurally generated, I tend to get bored of games like that so much quicker.

    That's ... hard to say, probably a Pokemon game, say Pokémon Gold or something like that?

    There are a number of games I've played once, maybe twice and then I'll promptly shelve them forever and ever (or at least until I borrow it), but Pokémon has great replayability both due to the variety of Pokémon and different ways to challenge yourself.

    The only other games I've played with similar replayability were Zachtronics games and that was more because you had different ways to optimize a given puzzle and it had a community input of puzzles.

      That's a tough question, because every game is going to get boring eventually, no matter how much I like it.

      I would probably choose Grand Theft Auto 5, as long as I can play online. It's mindless and never ends. Pretty sure I'd still get sick of it at some point.

        Dark Souls. It's been my favorite game for a long time and I've played through it so many times without ever getting bored it'll be a great way to avoid losing my mind.

        As much as I love story-driven games and RPGs, if I were to play one game for the rest of my life I wouldn't pick one since that will get old eventually no matter how much I love it since eventually you'll have done everything and replay value is usually lower.

        I think I'd never get tired of Hearthstone tbh, especially with regular expansions. It's casual enough to pick up whenever and I can get back into it pretty easily even if I've been away for a while. Or something like Tetris. I love Tetris.

        Also I'd probably play something that I could mod the muk out of. Minecraft, maybe?

          The Sims 3, I had endless fun marrying my sim to every man and woman in town then marrying their parents, inviting them to the weddings and then trapping them all in my home.

            Probably either Skyrim or some MMORPG.

            I haven't played an MMO in years, but I feel like if I was tied down to one game, it would need to be something with an, "Endless," feel to it.

            rune factory 4
            this game is so dear to me and i love it a lot. i'm probably going to replay soon, since it's been two or so years since i played last. <3 it had its flaws but it pulled me in more than any other game has.

            I mean, honestly? Probably League of Legends hahaha. It keeps changing and I never actually get bored of it and there's no way to actually "finish" it :D

            Mario Kart. I don't ever manage to tire of that game, and at least the switch is still useful at parties.

                Definitely not detective pikachu, no matter how much I currently love it.

                I think I'll go with Super Smash Bros Brawl. I could spend hours just listening to the music in it.

                I hate to say it, but League of Legends. As much as I might love any other game, almost none of them would be re-playable for the rest of my life. At least with LoL, I can look forward to a patch every two weeks and a new champion/rework every now and then.

                Probably Final Fantasy XIV. An MMO came to mind, and FFXIV is my favorite, so I'd be fine playing that. Plus there's social interaction and events.

                Its a toss up between these 2;

                Super Smash Bros Melee
                and
                Hello Kitty Cube Frenzy.

                Melee is so fun with all the crazy fighting styles and levels but hk cube frenzy always has such soothing and cute pictures to look at after you beat each level.....ugh its so hard xD I love these two games both so much! Do I HAVE to choose? *puppy dog eyes*

                  I'd probably and regrettably settle on World of Warcraft (you may substitute any MMO for the same intentions) because you can choose what to do and make your own fun and deviate from the path the game wants you to go (AKA "zomg grind to max level and do raids all week"). It's hard to explain in a short summarized post why but in this case it's more about having a lot of options than it is about preferring the gameplay, since it's definitely not about that. I could name 20+ games easy I'd rather the gameplay in.

                    I would probably pick mario, since it's a platformer, it has even glitches and more things to do i guess.
                    No, it would be impossible, since i cannot focus in only one game at the time.
                    Or probably pokémon, since the first time i have beaten red and blue, i can't think of getting bored easily.
