@Mickey: I am very sorry about my Lex comment early I had no idea that you were doing that. It wont happen again and I apologize if I upsetted you.

So let's move on to today's question.

What do you think of HD remakes of games from older generations like Ducktales for example?

I really like them to be honest. As long as they are a remake and not so much a reboot. Just in case you were wondering what the difference is a reboot is where the start the series over examples would be Castlevania Lord of Shadows, Tomb Raider, DMC. A remake is where its the same game but they updated the graphics maybe add a level or two etc.

Games like Ducktales Remastered for example I enjoy. It has all the charm story wise of the game from the previous generation but its interesting to see how the game would look using today's graphics/music capabilities.

I like them too, I think they are great way to play games from a generation past. They also allow you to replay games how you remember them, instead of how they actually are. I feel like there wasn't was a difference between Sly 2 on PS2 on and the HD remake, I know there is, it simply looked how I remember which was better than it actually was, so they preserve memories as well.

I'm gonna try again.

I think they're really great. I personally haven't played any, but as they usually throw 2-3 games into these collections, for only $40 (whilst new games cost $60), that's a lot of gaming content for a little price.

@Tasuki There's absolutely no need to apologize, it was an accident. You had no idea that I was trying to distance myself from Lex and I understand that. To clarify: I don't dislike the Lex Luthor thing I had going on. It was fun for awhile but, thing is, I got into a rather heated argument and immediately afterward I realized I didn't want to be known as that guy who gets into the arguments and generally ruins everything for everyone else. So I decided I'd be nicer... which I realized, after a couple of months, was impossible unless I distanced myself from the "Lex ball" and Lex Luthor image. Which is why I've been trying to distance myself from it.

Back on-topic: Yes, I love HD remakes. It's always fun for me to revisit old games with better graphics.

If we've gotten into an argument, it's okay. I'm probably not holding a grudge against you. Why? Because I like you!

OK sorry for missing a day with the QotD but I had to be in work early today after doing a closing shift last night which meant I didnt get a whole lot of sleep. So this will count as tomorrows question as well as today's since I am doing it a bit late today.

Question# 466: What is the most important aspect of a video game to you. (example graphics, storyline, play control etc.)

For me its the storyline. Honestly I am not a big graphic person as long as the game has a great story I am a happy man.

Probably cliché, but I'll say gameplay. I do enjoy a good, lengthy story though.

As for graphics, as long as they're good enough to get the point across.

Gameplay and play-control. I can overlook graphics and story, but if I'm bored while playing the game or the game is just impossible to play, I just can't play the game.

I really like games to have replay value.

Replay value, story and playability(essentially controls and how simple long it takes to pull something off. Like hitting the D pad to change equiptment in ACNL adds to playability.)

I think the story is pretty important. But what would a good story be without fun and interisting characters?! Boring ofcourse! The conversation would be lame and what's the fun about saving the universe with a pokerface hero? :|

I know there are exceptions... Some games only need good gameplay like Monster Hunter or Mario kart (I don't mean that Mario kart has no fun characters... But you get what I mean)

What do you suppose this stone is?

Whether or not a video game has strobing, seizure inducing elephants in it can make or break the experience for me. Which is why I don't like video games. ;)

well it may sound a little abstract but for me it is the fun I have with that game for how much time it can keep my attention, some games are fun for the first 5 minutes but get boring soon, games that are REALLY long and fun from start to AFTER the end are the best

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

I'm really not sure. I do appreciate good gameplay and story, but I don't think it is as necessary as I would like to think, because I can play games with generic gameplay or games with no to minimal story and still have a good time. Honestly, I think maybe it's music. The music to a game can really help set the mood of a game if it's done right, and I especially enjoy and appreciate it when it is. I mean, games like Xenoblade, Mega Man, Sonic, Mario Galaxy, Animal Crossing, etc. etc. etc... all have great soundtracks that really help with the mood and tone of the game. Not to mention, music is something about games that you can have and listen to and enjoy outside of actually playing the game, like having a CD of it or putting in iTunes... anything like that. And especially if a game has bad or annoying music, then I really just can't stand to listen to it, and I don't like to mute a game very much. Additionally, though it's not necessary, I do like when a game has some good writing to it (if the characters have lines) and humor if it fits. And I also like a good variety of interesting/likeable characters, they can really get me attached to a game.

While I hold all other aspects in high regard, I always find myself either drawn to or losing interest in a game based on the music. It's not the complete deciding factor though. I would say also whether the game is fun or not and has a good value in terms of content.

I believe in make believe~

I would really have to say the atmosphere. Games that have a great atmosphere really draw me into their world and create something special. Some of my favorite games are Donkey Kong Country 2 and Metroid Prime because of the engrossing and unique atmosphere they have.

I do love a game with a great soundtrack though.
