I am a lover of video games that have a strong personality or narrative embedded through them! Yes I know, games are all about the gameplay but I want something a little more as well.
Also when I ask for more story in games, I don’t mean more cut scenes but the use of storytelling methods akin to those found in Bioshock or Half-Life 2 would work great.
Telling a compelling story without taking control from the player? Beauty!
Although I do enjoy the occasional game with "hyper-realistic" visuals, I mostly prefer stylized or more exaggerated graphics in games. Graphics like those found in Final Fantasy 9, Jak & Daxter Series, or Second Sight.
RPG's, Action/Adventure, and FPS are among my favorite genres.
