Wouldn't it make more sense to say "lasting appeal" instead of "replay value" in the reviews? Some games you only play through once and it takes longer than other games that you replay 2 or 3 times or you play online multiplayer. Doesn't really matter cause I am sure everyone understands what you mean.

Yes it would. I was actually thinking about this. I'll be doing that from now on, starting with my review of The Pitt for Fallout 3. That is, if the Boss approves.

not a bad idea. i'm not too fond of calling it "replay value" either. especially when you've got rpg's that you can spend 200 hours playing without ever actually starting over.

I know what you mean. Some games have 0 replay value but a lot of last appeal. I'll talk to the Boss to see if we can start doing this.

I mean if you think about it...does replay generally mean after you beat it? Not necessarily but replay just can mean to go back and keep playing it. Like suck you in.

But if ya'll really want to do it and if many people agree then go ahead and do it.

True. But you have to admit that Lasting Appeal sounds better than Replay Value when talking about things that you only play once.

Thank you. I'll just go ahead and do that and if Rashid doesn't like he can tell me and I'll change it.
