Top Ten Qualities of a Good Video Game
The Top Ten
Needs smooth gameplay to be great - B1ueNew
Well obviously duh - B1ueNew
Great controls, smooth movement and frame speed, fantastic level design, stunning graphics...these are all things I look for in a great game. People are going to disagree with me on this one but I think Sonic Lost World definitely has all of these things. Yes, I actually LIKE the controls in Sonic Lost World. Holding the run button isn't a big deal and really just feels like you are holding down a run button for Mario. Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario 3D World also have this. The list goes on. - DCfnaf
Obviously, A Game Like Batman: Arkham Knight Has Great Gameplay, Even if Some Of The Controls Are Unresponsive, Same Thing With Super Mario Galaxy 2, Good Gameplay, Games Like Dumb Ways To Die, Mario Party, And Temple Run Have Crappy Gameplay Yet People Still Praise Them, Good Entry And Reason - VideoGamefan5V 4 Comments
Online needs to be good - B1ueNew
What about the story mode if there is one? Story is much more important. - DapperPickle
It's fun to have a multiplayer mode in a game. - Samoy
Good multiplayer. Absolutely. You need a fantastic game with two - four players and you've got yourself a pleasant experience. Super Mario 3D World. - DCfnafV 1 Comment
I don't care about Multiplayer, you always have that annoying kid on either teams. And gameplay is indeed something, but Nothing ever comes close to originality.
For me, a good game needs to be something unique, exotic, and different from any other games. Sure, it might be severely underrated, but. I'm having enough shooter games with the same plots over and over and over again.
A good game also can be original by genre, I mean, you don't always need a multiplayer kind of game to enjoy gaming. Sure, your friends can't play with you. But the point of any game is mostly based on it's story, not playing together. Game devs need to experiment with other game genres, like maybe horror. There's not that much spooky games after FNaF, or maybe something related to exercise?
So please, if some game is different from your everyday games, appreciate it. It's one of its kind.
That is all true, but multiplayer is also important. Besides, their are multiplayer modes that allow you to choose which players you want to play with you or have on their team. - Samoy
Not necessarily because everyone hates FNaF. Mario usually has the same story and it gets praised all the time. Sonic has original gimmicks every game and someone always complains about them. Originality is good, but I feel like people get angry if they get original. - DCfnaf
Spiderman on the PS4 is a 6 or 7 hour story game but it took me at least a week (not in game hours though) because of other things I needed to do. - B1ueNew
The story mode in the Rudolph game for the Wii lasts only 15 MINUTES!
Games like Skyrim will entertain you four hundreds of hours and you're still not even close to being done.
Yes, you want to have a great story with massive character development and interesting level design. - DCfnafV 1 Comment
Games are much more enjoyable and tolerable if the controls work well with them. - Samoy
Goes well with the overall good gameplay. - cjWriter1997
The more characters are with their is with their backstory, design, traits, etc., the better and more interesting they can make or add to a game. - Samoy
To me graphics are a plus to the overall game. If the game itself is good, than the graphics are just a wonderful bonus. - cjWriter1997
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Has Good Graphics, But does That Make It Good? - VideoGamefan5
Graphics help, but it's not the ONLY thing that makes a game good. Just one of the things. - Samoy
Doesn't make a good game. - DapperPickle
This can be true. It doesn't necessarily affect anything (unless it's barf on the screen like Sonic Boom). Super Mario 64 DS is one of my favorite games of all time and it's graphics are outdated nowadays. FNaF Sister Location's graphics are somewhat lacking compared to FNaF 4, but it is still my favorite game in the franchise. Undertale is 8-bit and it is such a good game. - DCfnafV 2 Comments
I mean...Mario isn't necessarily a great protagonist compared to Sonic, but Mario's games are more polished and high quality than Sonic's. so yeah, this may be true in some instances, but not all. - DCfnaf
Nintendo, SEGA, Square Enix, Valve, Naughty Dog, Rockstar, Toby Fox, Scott Cawthon, etc. are good developers. They can still screw up sometimes, but they're good.
Activision, EA, King, Stellar Stone, Big Red Button, PETA, LJN...stay away from these guys. - DCfnaf
LOL you ain't worth my time buddy. I can see why "Intense Violence, Blood, and Gore" is on your list now. - DCfnaf
I guess this is what made Sonic Colors kinda okayish - TwilightKitsune
A few glitches make a game more fun or easier, but too many glitches in a game can ruin it. - Samoy
The reason I added this is because there was Intense Violence, Blood and Gore on the list. - TheYoshiPyro64
Like the item that said blood and gore makes a game good, it depends on the game itself. - Samoy
I honestly don't mind blood and gore - Mcgillacuddy
Nope. - Pokemonfan10
This is stupid, troll here!
That doesn't make a good video game at all it just makes for some satisfying/sickly death scenes. - DapperPickle
No it isn't. If Sonic 06 had this, would that make it a good game? - TwilightKitsuneV 6 Comments
What's the point of playing a game if you don't enjoy yourself while playing it?
This is the worst reason on the list only because it's praising those scumbags at IGN. 6/10 too much water. Enough said. Also, their Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Lost a World reviews were utter crap and wrong. - DCfnaf
Do you know that the problem with that review is that ORAS is a remake of another game? The original version had the same issue and it didn't get a lower grade from IGN. This version did, even though the problems it has were in the original. That's why the review is stupid. - DCfnaf
No, anything but IGN is helpful. - DapperPickle
Needs to have good reviews on IGN my ***! - Ultron123
Halo 4: OH NIEN POINT EIGT OUT UV TENN, HALO 4 Is the BEZD GAIM ever (Sarcasm) - VideoGamefan5V 1 Comment
This doesn't make the game bad, It's the only reason people hate Fortnite - B1ueNew
So that means you can't play video games again. - DapperPickle
Again, not necessarily true. Yeah, we have Call of Duty and Minecraft, but I personally think FNaF is a good series. Is it something I obsess over? Not anymore. I just enjoy the games. Besides, FNaF is a one player game anyway so 7 year olds can't bug you. - DCfnaf
Story games need cutscenes though - B1ueNew
Pokemon Alpha Sapphire sucks. Too much water.
