Yeah, i also search for everything. And those who voted graphics: go watch a movie instead.

I say the maps, graphics, & gameplay.

Graphics! Gameplay! Content! Tbh storyline isn't as big a thing, esp for a rts. I didn't do PE or Us campaigns on CoH OF, i played skirmish. And y'know what? the game was still owrth it. But for other games, esp rpg, storyline is really important too.

i say the 1st 3 choices on this poll. graphics don't need to be over the top killer, i'll settle for cell shaded or something simple

I agree with #4 about the Graphics, gameplay, content. But if its FPS the health system, and cover. RTS, what you can do and I prefer base building without a pop limit. Also for RTS and FPS what time it is set and where

Gameplay is the most important, story comes second, especially in historical games of course. Mods is nice but not really important for a game.

Everything! }>

A few years ago, I'd settle for just gameplay and Single Player. Now? All of the above. Almost all the huge titles out there right now have a nice balance of them. That's the key to a good game. In 2005, a game might look like something on the Nintendo 64, but it didn't matter. Now, with games like Crysis, Call of Duty 4, and of course Company of Heroes, it just wouldn't be successful. But I ramble. :P

id like a mod were it makes the frontal armour of the king tiger impenetrable but the rear significantly weaker and if an infantry squad run into a mg42 implacement it kills them
