The Arkham series. I've played through all games 3-4 times already. They are just so cool.

Skate 3 has always been the 1 game I can play no matter what my mood is. Lately Forza Horizon 4 has been my go to, there is always just so much fun to be had, and only starting to experience the online play and is so much, there was a Forza Event and just 12 people showed up in the red zone and we all randomly parked our cars in perfect line....its such a social event to play, and hundreds of ways to amuse yourself.

Maybe you don't believe me, but I love playing Chu Chu Rocket at any break. It's simply as funny as stupid. And, seriously, I do play Mario Kart 8 anytime I can.

GTAIV, Skyrim and Oblivion are the ones I start playing again when there arent any new games to play. Those three never get old.

Original Titanfall on Xbox One. It’s been my go to game this entire generation and I never tire of it. I enjoy playing Capture the Flag or Hardpoint.

I have a few so it would beat the purpose, considering you're asking for "one" and that doesn't exist to the way I play games.

Genre-wise they're all dependent on my mood. If I really liked the game? Chances are I'll replay, sometimes a lot.

I've beaten Devil May Cry 3 for example, exactly 43 times across three platforms. It's one of the few I've kept track playthroughs and difficulty modes for each.

The Last of Us multiplayer. Seriously, it has been my go-to game ever since I bought my PS4 4 years ago. It's the only PS4 game I have digitally. Very convenient.

Ussally Musou games or Fighting games. Right now it is Senran Kagura Estival Versus, Samurai Warriors 4, DB FigherZ and DOA Last Round. In the past it was Sengoku Basara 4, Soul Calibur 5 and Persona 4 Arena.

I will never run out of things to do in Skyrim. I doubt I'll ever beat that game. I also love to play Attack on Titan on my Vita when I have a few free minutes. It's really fun to pick up and play real quick and it also reminds me that I need to finish the damn show at some point lol

I will never ever have nothing else to play with the amount of games coming out...

...but I keep going back to Dark Souls anyway....

Also games like these are just infinitely replayable:

  • Factorio
  • Cities: Skylines
  • Slay The Spire
  • RimWorld
  • Civilization
  • 7 Days To DIe

And then there are the games that I find myself playing once every few years:

  • Fallout NV
  • Morrowind
  • Final Fantasy 7/8/9/12
  • Zelda ALttP
  • Chrono Cross
  • Rayman
  • Super Mario World
  • Some Ratchet & Clank game or another

This is as far away from my situation as it could possibly be. My backlog at this point is over 1000. I'm having a hard time to decide what to play next (or rather what NOT to play next). I never ever had "nothing else" to play

When I was younger it was games like GoldenEye 007 and Super Mario 64, but things have changed to the point where this is rarely a problem. I did fill time with Civilization VI at the beginning of the year, though.

I literally never have remotely close to that problem. I saw that post 2013 only because sense 2013 I have more games I am excited about playing then I can wrap my head around. in fact a few out there I want to play but have not bought because time does not exist in the universe to get to them.

I gaming now is my full time job.

When I get tired of large online projects like LOL or the Witcher, I always go out and enjoy small flash games like iospace.games. Oh, this is a classic. Eternal)
