Starcraft. I don't play the campaign over and over, but I like to start a game against NPCs on a big map like Continental Divide and play everyone vs everyone. I remove the fog of war using cheats so I can see the battles taking place between others as well as my own. Great fun.

Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?
Basically almost all the RE games. With some exceptions like RE6, all the RE games are fantastic to replay with the unlockables and generally they're quick enough that you don't feel like slogging along.

Solo:
Aria of Sorrow
Crackdown
Skyrim (Does it count as a replay if I've never actually beaten it? 100s of hours, but I can't be arsed to complete the main questline.)
EDIT: Kid Icarus: Uprising (or it would be if I still had my 3DS. That game needs a port yesterday)

Co-op:
For the King
Any of the Bungie Halos

Killer7 is one that I keep coming back to every couple of years. Suda's best games tend to just take up a permanent residence in a corner of my mind once I play them.

Sin & Punishment (N64) is another that I played many times, though it's been a while since last time.

For some reason, I've beaten Wind Waker well over 10 times...it's not even my favorite Zelda game but it's the one I finished the most times.

Classic games Diablo 2, Heroes of Might and Magic III (infinite replayability with random map generation), THPS2, RE4. More recent games Dark Souls 1 and 3, RE2 remake, Doom and Doom Eternal. Basically any game that has "full" focus on gameplay.

This game felt like chess, doesn't matter how much fighting game had been improved over these years, I will always be playing good old SSF2 once a while.

I don't think they've improved.

The best "new" 2d fighting game was Street Fighter 4, and that's because they tried to make it more like SF2 again.
 
Super Metroid - Perfection. I can’t even count how many times I’ve played it. It’s been my #1 best game of all time for nearly 30 years now.

No doubt, could finish this game two dozen times... it is indeed perfection.
In addition to this I'd add Link to the Past, which might be about as perfect as a game that's not Super Metroid can get for me.

Also I'd include a handful of the LucasArts really well-done adventure games -- Secret of Monkey Island, Full Throttle, Sam and Max, and Day of the Tentacle, all of which I've played many times.

For me Unreal Tournament is a game I played for a number of years straight... although YMMV whether an online shooter counts for this kind of thing.

nethack is my favorite dark souls clone
Resident Evil 4 -
Can't get enough of this game. I can beat it and start it over right away. It's just so much fun and the better you get, the more creative you can get with speedrunning techniques and messing with enemies.

Portal 2 -
Same kind of enjoyment I get out of RE4. It is flexible enough to make each run unique and try different strats.

Metroid NES -
I can reliably get to Mother Brain in about an hour and will beat it like 50% of the time. It's great for a short flight because I know almost exactly how long it will take to get through. Plus, those horror vibes and music have stuck with me since I was a little dude.

Symphony of the Night and Planescape Torment.
I consider Torment the perfect RPG, I always find new stuff and the writing is stellar. The Unbroken circle of Zerthimon dialogue blows my mind every time and Mitch Pileggi's stoic voice acting is a perfect fit.
I love it so much I never completed it, I always quit at the last stretch

Cyberpunk 2077. It seems like there's no shortage of creepy things to discover or notice about the characters and city. Like how when V and Jackie find two seemingly dead bodies in a bathtub with ice, V pushes the male dead body aside because he is only paid to find the female. And how the receptionists have no feet. Standing on your feet all day must be uncomfortable, so upgrading to legs with no feet seems like a smart move. Customers don't usually see them anyway.
