Went with my usual method of ranking how quickly they came to mind, with some tweaks.

It's a good thing the point separation is so small at the top.I put in my list. I am not happy with my list, but it is a list, and I like all the games on it. The first 5 or so games could have honestly been put in any order, as they were all options 1A through 1E. And the last 5 games on my list could have been subbed out for a good 30 different games but hard choices needed to be made and I just decided to give up after a certain point.
Some of my favorite pieces of media that I love the most and had the biggest personal impact on me, I have almost zero desire to ever actually experience in full again. Some stuff just doesn't have the same replay value, but that doesn't mean I love them any less. Especially when it comes to obtuse, 32bit RPGs that pad out 20 hours of brilliant story into 90 hours of grindy monotonous gameplay.then did the ol' "would I rather play this or this right now?" thing all the way down the list.
Oh no, I get that. I wasn't trying to undermine or invalidate your thought process, this is all 110% subjective! Sorry for the insinuations. Just remarking on how different everyone's thinking is, and how it's probably a reflection of how we all consume games differently.To be clear, if that works for you, totally fine. I just wanted to explain my thought process here.
I wouldn't have been able to rank the games at all, without these three categories, it was way too hard. And yes, there is more to these games than just my motivation to replay them. Memories like "Staying up till 5 AM on a Saturday with a friend, to play through GAME" or "makes me remember Christmas, when I was 12, and my sister came to visit from the city" makes GAME super important to me, and gives me feels, independant of my desire to replay them. I mean, I want to replay them all! I needed another metric.
To be clear, if that works for you, totally fine. I just wanted to explain my thought process here.
