What's "sexy" and what isn't "sexy" in gaming

I hate classifying gaming as "Sexy" but to be honest I just wanted an excuse to show off that picture of Palutena. Anyway, there are many things that people like, and many things that people don't like. It's mainly all opinions, but here's mine. We'll see if you agree.

What is "Sexy:"
Graphics
This was a no brainer. I've stated many times that I don't care about graphics as long as they look nice, and I stand by that. But when a game looks so good that when the commercial comes on I think it's real and not a video game, then that's very "Sexy:

Gameplay
Now we kind of get into touch. THe Dualshock 4 and Wii U Gamepad are VERY comfortable controllers. I'm not even kidding. those thing do your hands justice. And then there's how the game plays itself. If the controls are as good as they are for Donkey Kong Country, then I classify that as sexy, as well as the inFamous controls.

Large libraries of games
This partly depends on the publishers, partly depends on whether or not you can afford more than one game per month. But there's this really good feeling when you can just switch to another game you've recently bought rather than continuing with other one and beating it too quickly or continue to work your way up to a rage should you be stuck on one part.

Innovation
Innovation is often classified as gimmicks. Gimmicks are actually completely different, but lets not get into that. I like it when developers at least TRY to do something new, like the Dualshock 4 or Wii U gamepads touchscreen, which come with a variety of possibilities on how that g=can be implemented into games (if developers would hurry up and use them.)

Now, let's go on to what ISN'T "Sexy."

BS
You all know what that stands for. There are times whenyou are promised something, then given it moths later, years later, or not at all. There are still things that the PS4 still hasn't have that we were promised. And Nintendo...... I think you know that they don't really give us what we ask for until years later unless it's Mario. But those are excusable, to the very least. The HUGE BS is when a trailer is shown, then the game comes out and it sucks. HARD! (I think you all know I'm talking about Colonial Marines.)

Delays
Sometimes this actually IS sexy. For example, should Rayman Legends not have been delayed, that game would've been shorter than it already was. Bu most of the time, it's just annoying. With some exceptions, there are many games that I could've had at its intended launch only to be delayed fr features that I probably could've done without.

Fanboys
Yeah, you all saw this coming. I'm honestly not sure which race I hate more. I can't describe them all professionally, so let me do it UNprofessionally.

PC: GLORIOUS PC MASTER RACE! PC IS THE GREATEST FORM OF GAMING! IF YOU PLAY ANYTHING OTHER THAN PC, YOU ARE A CHILD WHO HAS NOT YET GROWN INTO A MAN!

Sony: WOO! PS4 DOMINATION! Everything else sucks. Seriously. Everyone who owns a Xbox One or Wii U thinks they're a hardcore gamer? Really? Morons. All you need is a Playstation and your set for a gen.

Microsoft: Who cares how much BS Microsoft has pulled? All other platforms suck anyway.

Nintendo: NINTENDO DOES NOT NEED TO CHANGE THEY ARE FINE THE WAY THEY ARE I DO NOT WANT A NEW STARFOX OR F-ZERO FOR WII U I AM FINE WTH WII SPORTS AND MARIO PARTY NINTENDO ROCKS NINTENDO FOR LIFE RIDLEY FOR SMASH!

I didn't cover everything, so let me know if I missed something, as always
