Wacko had a good point, the original topic was too broad and was far too similar, so ive narrowed the topic down to the pure elements of a video game.
What does in fact make a video game classified as a "hit"?
is it poularity, sales, or is it something deeper?
When you go to the store, or look at an online review of a game, what are the specifics you're searching for. Some tend to search for a pure Shoot-em-up style genre like the CoD series of Battlefield. Other tend to go into the RPG style and look for games such as Skyrim or Fallout.
So in your perspective, what makes a perfect game? is it character, element, plot, or design?
I know that when I am looking for a new game to play, i prefer to look at a game to where i can connect with the characters more than i am for the story line(unless its a romcom) That why i like playing games like Pokemon, or even going so far as to play Minecraft. In those games your person is your own and you do with it whatever you feel. On the other hand some games do in fact pull me in because of the plot and sometimes even the genre of game. Games like Vanquish and DW: Gundam pull me in due to its shooter like qualities, with strategic storytelling and playstyles.
So now tell me your opinion, what makes a "good" game?
