    List from 1 to 10 the most important things to have in order to make the perfect game. 10 being the most important and 1 being the least important.

    Graphics (Does it need to have the best graphics?)
    Sound (Chill music and great voice acting?)
    Story (A compelling, well written story?)
    Gameplay (Fun and entertaining game play?)
    Cost (Cheap? Or on a cost effiecent console?)
    Length (Not too long, not too short?)
    Developers (Famous names, proven designers?)
    Difficulty (Not too easy, not too hard?)
    Characters (Intresting, and cool looking characters?)
    Ports (Should everyone play it? Or should it be exclusive?)

    Graphics: 5
    Sound: 7
    Story: 8
    Gameplay: 10
    Cost: 3
    Length: 6
    Developers: 1

    Graphics - 4 - Graphics don't matter much, as long as they don't suck ass.

    Sound - 7 - I like good music in my games.

    Story - 6 - I like an interesting story but the higher numbers have higher priority to me.

    Gameplay - 10 - The most important thing in a game.

    Cost - 3 - Doesn't matter much, but if I spend 50$ on a steaming pile of shit I will be furious.

    Length - 8 - Again, must be long or I will be pissed/unsatisfied.

    Developers - 2 - Doesn't really matter if the game is good.

    Difficulty - 9 - I'm pretty much an expert at games so I need it to be hard.

    Characters - 5 - I like my characters to be cool and not effeminate like FF.

    Ports - 1 - If you don't have the system then too bad. :p

    Graphics- 6 (graphics are okay, but's just the icing on the cake)

    Sound- 7 (avoid having annoying music is bad)

    Story- 6 (story's are good, but i know alot of good games without one)

    Gameplay- 10 (basically what the game is. definitely needed for a good game)

    Cost- 7 (the game should be worth the money)

    Length- 6 (long is good, but if too long, it''ll feel dragged)

    Developers- 7 (although important, new companies could do great also)

    Difficulty- 7 (not to easy, not impossible)

    Characters- 6 (cool characters are nice, but again, some good games lack
    them)

    Ports- 7 (dont care, everyone should play a great game if they want to)

    No game is perfect. But what makes a game as good as it can get are these:

    Graphics
    Gameplay
    Control
    Story

    If a game pulls all those off right, it's automatically worth a buy for me. Examples would be RE4, Legend of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts and so on.
