Good Story Line and Gameplay.

I think gameplay trumps all, but I would be willing to bet that a lot of people would say graphics.

I liken it to the music industry. Pop music is disgusting. The masses love the total POOP that they call music today. Most people don't know enough about music to appreciate true talent. If Shakira or Jessica Simpson had to rely on anything other than their looks, they would never have become famous.

Now, look at how the industry has changed over the years to cater to the casual gamer, who doesn't know enough about games to distinguish brilliance from cookie-cutter garbage. The industry is pumping out massive quantities of absolute sh*t that has good graphics, but nothing else. I like to call it pop gaming. Sorry kids, but Madden is a prime example of this. The sheep will buy just about anything they're told to.

Gameplay. I could careless about graphics, aslong as the gameplay is solid I could play it for years.

Gameplay, but with all this next gen I think graphics will play a big role.

Graphics and characters don't make a game good. Look at the new DOA game and Rumble Roses :lol:

How can madden even be involved here?

The characters are NFL players, The storyline: Try and win a superbowl, the gameplay is good and so are the graphics, Madden is a great game, way better than anything 2K ever put out

Anyway whats most important to me is the storyline and gameplay

:yeahthat:

My favorite all time games(MGS,God of War,GTA,PE,SC,etc....) all have great storylines and make it more of an experience than a game.

Madden is the perfect example of "pop gaming". It is a game that the NFL and EA are forcing down gamers throats, and the masses devour it every year.

Saying that Madden is better than anything 2K ever put out is like saying that dog sh*t tastes better than steak.

Madden is still a quality game.

Plus that is false. 2k NEVER had a good offseason mode. They just couldn't figure out the draft.

The 2k series was horrible man, I don't know what planet you're living on, but Madden has always stomped on it on everything except graphics.

When it comes to an RPG, it's all about story, but gameplay is a big factor. Gameplay is the #1 priority in any other type of game, so for me gameplay is the most important thing you can have.

I've never played the video game "Guitar Hero". It looks like a (shudder)Dance Dance Revolution type game.

My user title says guitar hero because I play guitar for real.

Gameplay for sure. Anyone can put together a good graphics engine, the hard part is making the AI and controlls as fine tuned as they possibly can.....which never happens :lol:
