What makes a good game? There isn't really an answer to that question because the answer is different no matter who you ask. How many times have you heard people blast a movie and point out all the flaws, but then you end up loving it? Honestly this happens to me a lot. I think it's funny that you can watch a movie twice and hate it the first time, but love it the second time. I think influence is one of the key factors in deciding what you like. No matter how many times your psycho girlfriend tries to convince you, you won't like anything unless you yourself ACTUALLY does. In a world where so much is done because of peer pressure, be yourself and have your own voice. Games are fun for different reasons, but you can't really narrow it down to one thing. Do you like paying for in game sex and then running over said hooker to get your money back? Then GTA is the game for you! I think gamers often look in for what they want in the wrong areas. Do some homework before you blow 60 bucks on game, and you'll have a much better idea of what your getting into, and remember than games are meant to be fun.
