Video Games Are Better The Second Time You Play Them

For me, the majority of the games I play are NOT "better" the second time you play them. I'm a big fan of shooters but I like a good story as well and the second time you play a game, for the most part, the story has already been revealed to you. So, to me at least, that takes a bit away from the game the second time through. What are your thoughts?

I love to replay games. It’s something my colleagues occasionally give me crap for. They worry I’m sacrificing time I could otherwise spend on new games re-experiencing old ones. I do play games for a living, so I always try to maintain a healthy mix of new ones in my rotation. But I’m almost always replaying something. In fact, I generally enjoy replying the older games more than breaking in the new ones.
