Replayability

I'm definitely going to play the storyline first from beginning to end. Then I will jump online. As far as going back and replaying it again is concerned, I imagine that over the next few years I will replay the story line several times over just as I did in RDR. I have played the RDR storyline probably about 6 or 7 times now. I always learn something new every time I do it LOL

I played the RDR single-player mode to its fruition throughout 2010 - 2011. Then I played multiplayer from 2011 to about 2015. I got really good at it. Always had the top scores in the games and almost was never beaten in the beginning Showdowns.

That said, I never returned to single player until just this year. (STILL had my game saves from 2010!) About a month or so ago, I started the single-player campaign over and, once again, found Marston standing in front of Fort Mercer, calling out Bill Williamson. I'm about three-quarters through with the campaign now, and honestly, I'm just doing it in order to brush-up on my skills again to try RDR Multiplayer again, and THAT'S only so I can be brushed-up for when I start the single-player campaign on RDR2 this December. And THAT will be so I can be ready for RDR2 multiplayer.

It's all the means to an end for me.

But I fully intend to enjoy the journey.

What would you say was your biggest discovery in one of your re-playthroughs that you'd missed before?

As someone who doesn't do online gaming, the replayability factor of the story mode is most important to me. 

That being said, I don't think i've ever had a Rockstar game where I haven't done at least a second play through. 

I'm hoping the introduction of choice based interactions will make for a few alternative outcomes in the story. Like in the Witcher 3, the choices you made determined the outcome of the game, with alternate endings. It makes you want to do another playthrough just to see the differences in the choices you make.

Usually just funny little things.  Like the other day I realized that John/Jack always get off the horse on the left side.  Even my wife noticed it when I mentioned it.  At least I have not noticed him get off the right side. When I think of how many times I've jumped off the horse, and I just noticed it the other day? lol Sometimes it's not always something to do with the story line. I also used to get steaming mad when doing something like Pike's Basin, I jump off the horse and as soon as I get off of him he starts walking forward toward the danger, and gets right in the way of the crossfire, killing him.  I noticed that it only happens if I do not wait for the horse to come to a complete stop before getting off.  Again, usually stupid little things but I find them entertaining at times.

The only game I've played more than once is The Last Of Us. Which I think ive done 3 times. I always meant to replay GTAV as there are different ways to do heists in the story but i never did. I think I'll end up dragging RDR2 out. Taking my time. Like @Benjo said, doing all the side missions and little challenges. Then that'll be it. Move on to Online.

I tend to revisit campaigns at least one more time when there is a lul between game releases.  Did it with RDR, GTA V, TLOU, Witcher 3, BG series, Mafia III, Watch Dogs series, XCOM series, GRW and many others.  However, there are few in that long list that I will actually finish all the way to the end after already doing it once.  Usually, a new title will release by then or I will get bored.

What I really value in an SP game are things like dynamic side missions, a mission generator / editor or other components like that which provide meaningful replay value.  

In GTAV, I spent a lot of time on a solo server just plating missions that I could do myself.  .....even did/do the same thing in public forums using a trick to isolate myself on the server.  That in itself game provided me with many hours of fun.  I hope I can do something similar in RDR2.  I do know that I will spend a lot of time with friends in this game as well.

When it comes to games where you can pick your dialogue and actions there is a ton of reputability. You can play as the worst person you can be or the best person you can be. There might be a point where you have to make a choice and even if you are playing as a good Arthur you might choose A instead of B so the nest play can be good Arthur with choice B and see how the story line changes.

There may also be places or events you cannot go to unless you pick a certain choices were picked and you can not see the others unless you do another play-through.

As some who is a bit of an achievement hoarder and a storyline enthusiast, I can't get enough games like that because it never gets old

In the original, I played both online and campaign a lot.  I can't tell you how many times I played through the campaign, but I was to the point I knew where I needed to go before it was on the map.

Although I spent hundreds of hours in offline mode (rarely went on online, if ever after the first few times), I only played the story mode once. I found a lot of the missions repetitive and boring and the thought of replaying them even now after all this time makes me balk at the idea.

Are you sure you want to buy the sequel?  I do have doubts about Online, mostly because of how they did GTA Online?  Yet I am excited to see what they have done and look forward to playing for hours and hours.

I am not one to play a game twice but I won't rule it out that I don't play this one more than once, it just isn't likely. Same thing with movies and tv shows. Once I have seen everything, I don't enjoy it the second time around. I think I have the attention span of a bowl of Cheerios though.

I am not one to replay a game, especially big ones. I have no desire to even replay Detroit: Become Human! I don't know why I can't bring myself to replay a game. I want to play as a good guy in my play through, so I'm tempted to replay as a bad guy but possibly not go through the campaign again and just see how that affects gameplay. I will probably spend time in RDR2's universe like I used to in GTA games, where you just mess around or enjoy the universe, relax and do what you like. I tend to take my time in campaign games. I don't rush through them so I can enjoy everything, just in case I don't go through the campaign again.
