Usually I'd disagree about posting .wordpress blogs but it's an interesting read with little evidence of bias.

It's an interesting read with an original story angle... but where was Fallout 3 in the Washington DC example?

Not only new interesting environments, but more interactive, destructible environments. Nothing worse than when you shoot a lamp and it seems to be made of bullet-proof glass. I'm not saying everything should be able to be destroyed but the environment has to seem alive and somewhat realistic.

I also think more games should have NPCs around that aren't there just to shoot with or at you.
