I Did My First Gaming Triple-Dip. What Is Your Must-Have Game?

So last night I caved and downloaded Stardew Valley for the Switch, even though I already have it for mobile and PS4. It's the first time I've ever gotten a game THREE times, even though I've purchased quite a few games twice for different platforms.

Anyone else guilty of this? What games did it to you?


Also pls don't tell my wife.

I just bought Ori & The Blind Forest for the second time on Switch. Don't think I've ever owned a game more than that, although if the Prime Trilogy comes to Switch I will have owned Prime 2 on Gamecube, Wii U VC and Switch - a game which I actively dislike lol

I own Stardew Valley on every platform I got (PC, PS4 (physical and digital), Xbox One, Mobile) and intend to get it on Switch as well, mostly cause I love the game and want ConcernedApe to get as much of my money as possible.

Additionally, I own the original Deus Ex as the original physical PC release, the PS2 version, the german PSN version, the english PSN version and the Steam version.

I triple-dipped for RE4 (like most of us did I guess): PS2, X360, X1
And Skyrim: PS3, GotY PS3 and GotY X1
That's all I can think of by now.

I have bought a copy of Resident Evil 4 on Gamecube, PS2, Wii, Xbox360, PS4 and XBOX One, When the price is right I'll buy a Switch to play it again,

I’ve purchased Star Ocean 2 seven times.

Broke disk 2 three times, lost it once, bought my brother his own copy, and then bought it again when I moved and forgot it at my mothers place.

Bought the digital version of Wattam.
Then they went and announced the limited print physical edition, so I had to buy it. Three more times.

Guilty of this a number of times, but if there's one game I'd buy again right now - no questions asked - it'd be another up-port of XCOM.

The game that keeps on giving.

The Witcher 3 (PC - GOG, PC - Steam, PS4)

I am now strongly considering the Switch version for my next time through.

I've mostly stopped that practice, but I am sure in the last 30 years or so I have bought some of the Nintendo classics three times.

I own all the Kingdom Hearts games on their original platforms, and the remasters on both PS3 and PS4.

Wouldn’t normally buy a remaster twice but they’re 60fps for the first time on PS4 and that’s just a no brainer. They got me good.

Don’t have them all portable so they could get me again with Switch ports.

I bought Shovel Knight and Sonic Mania for every system they're available on. I absolutely love those games. I'm sure I've triple-dipped (or more) with all the various compilations out there.

Between discs and digitally on different platforms including my PS4 I have honestly lost count how many times I have bought the GTA III trilogy over the years. We are talking double digits at minimum.

Doom.
Witcher 3.
GTA5.

That said, I've doubled a bunch due to system changes, performance improvements etc. Too many to remember.

Cave Story. I've owned:
  • Original freeware release
  • Wiiware version
  • Cave Story 3D
  • Cave Story+ on Switch
And yes, Cave Story is absolutely a must have.

I am typically against ports, but Cave Story's enhancements on each platform plus the joy of playing it have broken my will. Another game I would buy on Switch in a heartbeat is Pixeljunk Monsters which I already owned PSP and PC versions of.

Very rare I ever double dip never mind triple dip.

But there are rare exceptions.

Stardew Valley (PC, iOS, Switch)
FFXII (PS2 and twice on PS4. Gave one copy away then grabbed it on PSN. Then PC).

Too many to list but the game that comes close to mind is Final Fantasy IX - PS1 x2, PS3/PSP, PS4, Android, and PC. Not counting the other 3 times I bought them as gifts on steam

Kingdom Hearts 1, Kingdom Hearts 2, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Skyrim, Final Fantasy XII...

Those are the big ones. I'm sure there are some others scattered about I may be missing. And if the KH games come to Switch I'd buy them for the... 4th time (5th if you include the upcoming Xbox One re-release of them that I'll be downloading.)
