What’s the most amount of times you’ve bought the same game?

Recommended Posts

I’ve just bought The Witcher 3 for the 4th time, I bought it and completed it when it came out, sold it, bought it again after the DLCs were released, bought it on PC when I got a new PC as I wanted to see how well it would run it, and I’ve now just bought it for a 4th time on Switch, not sure why, just fancied giving it a go in handheld,

 

I’ve done this plenty of times in the past, I’ve probably owned Final Fantasy 7 possibly 10 times on various formats throughout the years,

 

What would you say is the game you have purchased the most amount of times?

Twice, I think. Bought Darkwood once on P.C then again on PS4 as I’d got it for such a cheap (Kickstarter) price on P.C and wanted to give the devs their full due. I’m sure there have been others, but I don’t do it for many games.

I bought Advance Wars (GBA) three times; the first copy was a US import purchased in late 2001 from a local indie games shop. I later sold the game on, because I didn’t have any other money for games. And then I later rebought Advance Wars twice via forums. Can’t remember what happened to my second copy or why I needed to replace it, though.

If it hadn't been an ambassador game, I'd probably have got it on 3DS too.

 

Bought Skyrim five times, so I guess it's second.

Minecraft on PS3, PS4 and PC

Jedi Knight 2 on PC and Switch

 

That’s it really.  I don’t tend to sell games or consoles that often, and don’t have the time to buy, play/complete and then sell on.

I've bought Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U (plus all the DLC), then on the 3DS (plus all the DLC) and finally on the Switch. I regret nothing.


Is the correct answer.

BioShock 1 and 2 probably.

360, PS3, PC for the original releases, then the remasters on both PS4 and Xbox One (PC version was a free upgrade, would have bought them both again if it wasn't though).

Yes, I will buy the inevitable Switch ports too.

Streets of Rage 2 - Mega Drive, Xbox 360, PC (Mega Drive Collection), Vita (same), 3DS

Hah, almost the same. :) Had it on the Mega Drive and later the PS3 Mega Drive compilation; currently have it on (another) original Mega Drive cartridge, a bootleg multi-game cart, a 3DS download, and on last year’s Mega Drive compilation. I don’t even like Streets of Rage 2 very much, it’s just one of the few retrogames that my sister likes to play with me in two-player mode.

 

(Wasn’t SoR2 also on one of the Sonic compilations for the GameCube?)
