Option in TiBU
This only works for those of us on Rooted Systems using CWM and Titanium Backup Pro. May work on standard but IDK, I use Pro.
One of the best ways I found to have full control over what gets re-installed on a flash of a new ROM with or without the latest Gapps "Restore from Google Account" tick box is to First do a CWM Nandroid Back Up of the current ROM with all the apps you want to keep updated through Play Store.
On install of your New ROM in the setup wizard, set up your Google account, un-check the "Restore account from Google" if it is there. turn on and connect your WiFi if you want. Go to Playstore and install your Titanium Backup and Pro license. Set up your TiBu prefferances and reboot the phone. Sometimes this needs to be done to get TiBu all the way up and running. then launch TiBu and go to Menu>Extract from Nandroid. Surf to the clockworkmod folder if you have to and sellect the backup you made. It will take a minute or more but there will be a list of apps and an option to restore Apps+Data, Apps only or Data Only. Make your tick box app selections and then hit the green check mark at the top right in TiBu.
This is way faster than the Play Store download speed and if you select Apps + Data your games and such will be right where you left off.
Then you can go to Play Store>My Apps and update any apps that need it since the Nandriod Backup was done.
