The best part of going back is that you can pick and choose the best out of the bunch. No wasting your time on throw away games that were fun for awhile, but in the end they weren't that memorable.
I suppose that means the phenomenon isn't a mathematically functional certainty. But I'm pretty sure its a factual trend in human experience. If you kept re-playing and re-playing, re-reading and re-reading, re-watching and re-watching the same thing should probably happen with increasing frequency. I think it's the same psychological thing that makes you think your childhood was a really big portion of your life and the last year of your adulthood went by like <snaps fingers>. In other words, just a part of being human.
