What do you think makes a great video game?
As a developer, I'd say iteration is essential to make a great game. As a player, the greatest games for me have either had a compelling story line or they've been extremely replayable relying on skill. Both in the case of Half-Life with its original story and awesome deathmatch multiplayer! I still have dreams in Lambda Bunker
