Just look at whats happening with Blops
I see what you are saying but I disagree, I think they are actually hurting sales because I now avoid buying new games when I know 6-12 months later there will be a GOTY and if not I just skip the game or wait for super low sale prices. I also happen to know I am not alone in this.

Aside from BF3 I have no intentions in buyng any games new at full price anytime soon and I used to buy a new game maybe more every month.

And blops is in a class all on it's own because some people just play that and ignore everything else.

The improved graphics will come naturally once we finally abandon 360/PS3 for new consoles. I'll take better story/narrative - 99% of video games have terrible/mediocre, cliche-ridden, cringe-worthy stories.

I wish some games were just optimized better. I mean... look at Metro 2033. That game kills. @_@. GTA4 is a pain in the butt too! And Crysis! (original) I ran Warhead better than Core. :/

Dice should teach all other devs to optimize PC games imho...

Not the point. It's part of what I want to see the devs spend more time on, hnce the vote for "other" and my description of such.

I would like to vote for Inovative game play, but it ussually comes off bad...even if it is good. I think people will not like it because they are used to the way it always has been done and "should be" done. Look at all the whiners on Dungeon Siege 3. All I think they really changed was that you don't have to click on actual target to attack (but I've only played the first Dungeon Siege). People are screaming that it is an action game...to me it looks like it still just click, click, click, click. They introduced a different style of game play in an effort to make something new. They should be commended. Then there is all the bad press going on about Diablo 3...it seems if a game has the same name people think the developer shouldn't change anything. If Diablo 3 was named Hazuka Quest people probably would singing praises to the game and its inovative ideas.

So, I am for story and naratives. This what will make a person want to keep playing a single player game. Though of course this has no place in a multiplayer centric game. Games used to have the writer teams larger than the developers...how often do we see 30+ hours of gameplay rated games these days? We are lucky to get ten.

I guess if it was a game that is built around a multiplayer aspect...I would like to see better graphics. If I were to play a MMO again I would like to see a story and not just a couple thousand random quests where only at most ten quests actually relate to each other in a "quest line"....but still, the people I meet in a MMO keep me playing more than anything else. So I'd still like higher priority placed on graphics for anything multiplayer...even a MMO. Might as well have nice eye candy while I am chatting.

It doesnt matter what we want, now its all about money. Especially since devs all assume we have no IQ and they need to dumb it down for us.

Better Narratives & Story

I would kill for stories and story-telling that was actually cleaver and well constructed.
