    What makes a video game better?

    The gameplay or the graphics. Personally I think that the nintendo 64 has some of the best games ever becuase of the gameplay being so fun...so I would def say gameplay, but what do you think?

    i think that novelty , surprise, progress through the game, make the game interesting. you would not like to play a game again if does give opportunity of novelty and challenge to your mind. if the game does not have surprises then it becomes a boredom. you will leave a game if its repetitive and does not progress through its way while developing.

    I would say game play is a BIGGIE. Graphics are great, but if the game play is crappy it won't matter how good the graphics are. Without game play there is nothing encouraging the player to return time and time again, especially with online gaming.

    Unless they are made so poorly that they interfere with gameplay, graphics DO NOT matter. It's called a video game. Naturally the way you play it should be what makes you come back to the game time and time again.

    I think the multiplayer makes or brakes a game.  Graphics are pretty much standards theses days, therefore the gameplay makes the difference.

    Story and concept. Some of the best games around are high concept (simple in plot and execution), like Portal, and need only a minimal story to help people along.
    But then again, there are games with massive expanded universes like Halo, that draw people in with immersive stories, a unique sense of humor and hardcore gameplay.

    Ahh gameplay. Your game could be like freaking John Steinbeck but nobody would give a damn if it wasn't any fun to play.

    I'm just going to go out and say what maakes a great game is if it's fun to play and you feel that you want to do it because you enjoy it. That is more important than graphics or story or anything else.

    Gameplay by far.  For example, if your framerate is low you'll lower the graphics and probably not even notice difference after 10 minutes.  In general, I think a lot of companies develop games backwards where they think of universe and "cool" ways things interact, and then build dynamics to fit that, when in fact I think you should begin with a fun system of game mechanics, and then build a universe onto that.  my 2c

    Gameplay and the story as well as the replay value. Not really concered with the graphics.
