When you’ve just finished an amazing game, sometimes you want to go back and experience it all over again. It’s only natural, so that’s why some games provide incentives for the same, whether it’s New Game Plus (and content tied exclusively to it), alternate routes, true endings or being able to replay previously cleared missions. Let’s take a look at 14 titles that become even better when it’s your second playthrough or more.

Bastion

Bastion offers New Game Plus, which is fairly straightforward – any Spirits that you’ve unlocked will carry over along with all weapons, levels, Fragments and upgrades. Some Vigils, along with Proving Grounds completion, are lost, but you can start out with a lot of your previous progress intact. It’s the story that’s most intriguing – if you choose the Restoration ending in your first playthrough, the narrator Rucks will have moments of deja vu, like all of this has happened before. You also gain access to the Stranger’s Dream, a level with waves of foes which also provides more details on Rucks’ and the world of Caeldonia before The Calamity.
