What's the main thing you value games by (besides gameplay?)
« on: November 06, 2015, 01:25:06 PM »
IE, what secondary attribute do you use to attribute greatness to a game? Price, writing quality, playtime, etc. Maybe a limited question, but we'll see.

Personally I'm all about hour counts. Whenever I get a good game the first thing I usually cite is how many hours I've put into it so far. My favorite PC games have been RPGs like New Vegas / Skyrim / Borderlands / Mass Effect where you can easily rack up hundreds of hours.
I'm crossing you in style

Each game is judged by me in 3 Things:

-Gameplay
-Fun
-Music

Examples of games where every of these fit are the Little Big Planet series and the Mario & Luigi series :P

-Music
-Dialogue and story (depends on the series)
-Fun
-Replay value (Again, depends by series / type of game)
Look, look with your special eyes...

typically it's how well the story is written, a lot of games can tell a great story regardless of genre.

ie a lot of people don't give a s*** about the storyline in the gta series but i thought gta iv's story was very well done. gta v's story was okay, but
it felt like a cop out at the end.
hey
