here's a question, when you're playing a game, are you having fun?
i dunno about you guys, but to me, if a game's fun, then it's a good game,
hence why i actually enjoyed the abysmal sonic the hedgehog,
of course, some people play video games for the story,
i have a friend that will only play a game if it has a good story,
but he's still having fun with it,
so, what are you guys really looking for?
when you're looking for a game, are you playing for some other reason other than fun?
it really depends, but i think for me it ultimately is the experience and what story i can take from it.
i play uncharted for that cinematic storytelling, i play burnout for the pure adrenaline rushed fun, i play smash for that hyper competitive and random zany action.
in all those games i can walk away being able to clearly talk about why i had fun and what i got out of it, and what my story was (which is why I love multi-threaded RPGs)
Thus far the thing I'm coming to All Stars for is purely fun factor. And I want to walk away being able to talk smack about my buddies. I also love the "one more time" aspect to it (which is less about fun like burnout, but more about mastering something ala smash or even prince of persia)
