Never really did care for it, until Bloodborne sucked me.

Man, the one time you forget to leave a word out... hahahahaha.

The only games I've ever NG+ were Golden Sun 2 (because it's my favorite game), Persona 4 Golden for some odd reason, and Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen recently.

Generally, I completely ignore that option. I finish a game and move on.

I played Bloodborne like 6 times, but each time was a fresh save. I don't find a little beefier enemies and retaining my endgame overpowered-ness to be more gratifying than starting over from scratch and struggling to get optimized.

I'll only touch NG+ if there is completely new content to explore. Most games only add difficulty and/or one bonus boss fight and call it a day, I don't care for that. Kudos to those that do though.

I think New Game + is a positive thing if it adds substantial gameplay mechanics into the mix. For instance, introducing different story paths, game regions, or items you can obtain, makes New Game + a more worthwhile thing to include in your game. I'm still willing to play games that simply just keeps your stats (sometimes gear) over for the next playthrough, but I can see why someone would want something more substantial.

And yeah, I would agree with the sentiment of one of the people above Dragons Dogma having some good NG+ components. I remember also playing another game called Tales of Vesperia, and that game also seemed to have some unique NG+ mechanics. You could activate certain conditions for your next playthrough by acquiring a hidden credit amount during the course of your first playthrough. This could then be used on the next playthrough to activate or unlock certain features the next time (ex. More/Less XP gains, Unlock all party dialogue, etc).

Check out trophy stats for the game you're playing right now. How many people reached the end credits? I bet its something like 30%.

Chances of me replaying a game is pretty slim considering all the games that come out every month.

I have never used a New Game Plus, and I really don't see what the big deal about it is. I've seen some games that didn't have it, and people got all irate about it...

Depends on how the game goes about it.

I actually really liked how Final Fantasy X-2 did it. Your levels were reset but you got to keep all of the classes you unlocked.
