Damn, both one and two are must haves, but I require that the game have a very good replayability factor too.

Wrong poll. should be many checkable boxes, not one answer only.

I'd rather vote for the second. For example in races and other sports the storyline isn't that important. practically I'm playing games to have some fun and waste enormous amounts of spare time I have won these holidays. It's eleven more days till school. Wish I could work somewhere.

Generally oldschool flavor.
Must be able to kill shit.
Must have tolerable music.
Decent or harder difficulty.
Fun and easy to execute your actions in the game. (in other words, I don't like awkward or frustrating control schemes)
No textbooks' worth of words, or movie length's worth of cutscenes. I want to PLAY a GAME, not read a book or watch a movie.
Platforming (like Mario) and exploration (like Metroid) games get extra points.

Personally Super smash bros. melee and brawl cover the best of the best.

With a few exceptions (Prototype, for example) I generally play games for the story. It makes me feel a little less bad about myself for devoting so much time to gaming rather than books than playing for the action or (god forbid!) the multiplayer experience would.

Replayability is important to me.

If I'm going to be paying over $60 for a game, it better damn well be fun to go through more than once.

EDIT: Also gore gets bonus points from me. x3

I look for high quality story. I don't care if it is a gameboy game, if there is a story I like, I'm playin' it!

I look for games that do no contain escort missions, a insultingly scarce save system they try to make you believe makes it hardcore and a BS nostalgic affinity for making games extremely difficult. Make it difficult if its a point scoring game, don't beat me down with unbalanced forces while I'm playing games to feel powerful in a world that already has me beaten down, I'm not looking to be punished.

1. Good controls. Even if it has a good story, if it has shitty controls, no thanks.
2. Excellent plot twists that make you want to fall out of your chair. (Jak 3 did that for me)
3. Bonuses that make the game replayable (Godfather: Blackhand Edition has enough that make me want to play again and again til I get 100%. Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem on the other hand...played through to get all three variations, got a two minute "bonus" ending, and took the game and traded in and never touched it again)

1) Super controls!

I LOVE it when you don't have to wait for your character to execute what you're asking to him. I like "taking place of him".

2) Difficulty!

Gradius, I wanna be the guy, I wanna save the kids, Doom on Nightmare difficulty only with shotgun ...

What's better than having hours on a game to think how to get pass that moment you always get killed?
I, for now, don't have one of a challenge anymore. I tend to be hardcore gamer. I'm playing some new mods for super mario world but well... With all the "save states", it kills a bit everything.

3) Plots

It has to be short. To ME, Doom was the perfect thing. Heretic even more. Hexen was perfect!
You've a storyline that you follow and time to time it makes you remember where you go and what's your objective ("you've just escaped from Phobos... you're now heading to UAC lunar station to destroy the hell's gate" and so on).

I have to say that Hexen really was the shit (the first one... The second well...
I never really liked sequel who comes from 2D in 3D. That's a GOOD game but it's not hexen anymore to me).

4) Tactics multiplayer

SWAT 4 is really nice as Duke Nukem 3D is for that. You have to do intense actions with your friends, talking/writing down messages to speak and to think how to kill faster without getting in each others way.
All of this laughing of stupid IA and how the blood goes here and there.

5) Please.. Don't mix all kind of games!

Shenmue is a kind of exception to me but... Don't mix too much stuff together.
Medal of Honor, Call of duty, the end of Kid Icarus, the new X megamans...

For instance, all the new war games aren't even war games to me!
You just have to run around the map kill someone and running again...
I prefer BY FAR (!!) Red orchestra where you just move slowly and HAVE TO PLAY IN TEAM WITHOUT RUNNING EVERYWHERE. D:<

Action war games are just fantasies for kids.

EDIT: I just saw you can heal by yourself by staying without getting hitted on modern warfare... WTF?
EDIT 2: Oh. And I hate achievements. it's really stupid to me. It's like "now what you have to do is..." you can do all of this by yourself. We never had this before and the games were even HARDER so stop making it seems like a hard game with so easy objectives! It's like for IWBTG (I wanna be the guy): "Good, now that you double jumped 1000 times you can try to run 100 miles and finishing the game without dying more than 10 times ! Perfect now that you made this, you can try to find the 3th path by shooting the spike on the left of your fall!" Damn!

GoldenEye (00 Agent or even 007 Agent) and Perfect Dark (Perfect Agent or Dark Agent) with Slappers only!

I never liked the look of the N64 games and the ... manner you seem to move. I really don't feel like in a game nor anything else.
I really hate the N64 D:

I'm planning to go for the silver surfer and if I've difficulties, my neighboor already finished it, so he'll give me advices mwahaha.

Awww, you missed out on some great games then (the above two being excellent suggestions).
 
I had voted for good action and playtime, yet I second at having a good storyline.

EDIT: Also, I agree with Sernion, who posted after me -- a good soundtrack sometimes can make all the difference, me being a bit of an audiophile when it comes to games.

I see the goal before me
Picked for Good Storyline, but a good soundtrack makes the game really enjoyable for me.
 

Thatch

Still not at 10k posts
The story and world, as I don't care much for the genre.

Unless it's GTA. I like to just make a mess there :V

All I want from a game is a good storyline, a good sound track, and a good controller layout.

I used to play the heck out of RPGs in High School. In retrospect, I realize now that I can't go back and play hardly any of them again due to incredibly boring/irritating combat systems, and the supposed "story" I was playing for is more often than not pretty lackluster.

So, today, I pretty much shoot for anything that plays well, regardless of plot and whatnot (though admittedly I have gotten a bit back into a few RPGs as of late).
