better graphics. every game is a port nowadays, so the are all dx9 crap. look at a game like gta4. great game yet horrrible graphics. we have all this hardware, and instead of needing it because of awesome graphics, it has to crunch an ugly port.

I would like them to stop rushing games out so they can sell DLC for them. I want full complete games without waiting for the GOTY.

not going to happen, as the whole DLC business model is generating a lot more revenue.

Just look at whats happening with Blops

I voted better narratives.

However I should have voted innovative gameplay.

I would love to see more games actually have more depth and narrative given to them. It seems more FPS or 3rd Person shooters have about a 10 hour campaign and most of their focus is always about the multiplayer.

Longer campaigns, better voice acting.
I mean seriously, recent FPS's I played had campaigns that lasted barely 2-3 hours...

Too many games come out that feel poorly designed/implemented. No one is sitting at the company thinking "I would be pretty angry if I had to deal with this game every day." If they did, we'd have better games out of the box.
I do agree here in some way in that gameplay does mean a lot now a day's but bad when games were really making the scene there was more of a focus on gameplay and story based motivation to play a game but now you look at a game and either you have a great looking game or a barely decent game across all categories.

Oh i seriously agree with this, it's my position that consoles hold back gaming as a whole, when you have to deal with consoles like the xbox 360, and not to say its bad but hardware thats a decade old? I mean would you really be able to run todays game's on a 10 year old PC? I think not. All games should be developed for PC and then toned down for console player's

I think we all kind of wish to have everything taken up a notch in that all four marks on the poll could use a bit more work. maybe hiring an extra couple people per department within a game studio and maybe holding release dates a bit instead of just trying to pump out a game asap would fix the problem as well. We all know games make a lot of money when it's release(not the case in all games but major titles is my focus) then maybe they could have thought of that ahead and had more time or more people working on it.

I say drop most of the money from naratives and story and put it in gameplay and graphics. That's my opinion.

Imagine how better a game couldve been if they didnt spend so much time writing text for every single quest in an MMO?

Mhm, last really good shooter single player campaign that comes to mind is the original Halo, and thats nearly 10 years old. Hell the game has one level that takes an entire hour on its own (depending on the difficulty).

Tired of COD style games.
