What makes a great video game?
Advantages: It can be quite easy to tell if the game is going to have these traits
I play alot of games every now and then when I have time and there are a few things that really make a game interesting for me and make me want to play longer.
--------------------Months on end of Gameplay
I think for me games are always better when you can play them for months on end and still have thing to do with the game and still be trying to complete the game. I think as you get older that does get harder because games get easier but I think that a game with loads of levels and loads of challenges is one thing that always keeps me engaged in a game. Having lots to do in a game for me makes it more fun as opposed to finishing the game in a week and needing a new game. I know some games don't have levels and all that but as long as it has loads of things to unlock or collect or something to keep the game going then I will enjoy the game
--------------------Interesting Character & Quotes
I think for me in a game when there are fun characters it makes the game more entertaining if there are characters you enjoying seeing in action. I think it's always good for the characters in games to have interesting quotes that are addictive and memorable. An example of this in SSX Tricky the cometary used to say " It's the only trick you ever knew" in a really funny mockery way which used to make me laugh every time. Stuff like that make the game more fun and involving.
--------------------Location, setting, good graphics
I think that a good game will have good graphics and have a variety of different locations and settings to fit it's genre. There is nothing worse to me than playing a game tat looks the same for hours on end. It doesn't have to be dramatic changes but I mean even a classic game such a Burger Time which is really old every level looks quite different which is good and makes me think yes new challenge.
For me when playing a game it's always good to have some good music in the background at varies point in the game such as loading, menus and even Gameplay itself. The reason I think good music is good is because for example when you are waiting for menus to load it's boring especially if it takes long and music helps with the wait. Also when your playing the game you want something you game jam to and get you pumped to put everything into the game. For me the music is a bit of a motivational thing when playing games so I like when it's something fun, relaxing, aggressive or whatever to fit the genre of the game.
I hate games that when you die you just jump back up and start were you left of because it's a little bit unrealistic. I think it's better if your forced to go backed to the beginning or complete the level again or something like that because it's makes me personally take more care when playing and get into the game more because I know I all my effort is required if I want to successfully finish the level or game.
These are the main things really that make a game good for me and make me want to play more and more. I don't expect all in every game I play because each point really can't apply to every genre of game. As long as a game I'm playing has one or two then I will enjoy playing it. The only point that is mandatory is the first one because I generally hate games that I can complete or get tired of in a week.
Summary: All of the above
