    How a game plays is a huge factor.

    Usually, the playability of a game is what makes you come back to it. Like for example, with the Mario games, they keep the core mechanics (jumping on enemies, getting coins, powerups, etc), and just improve on how it works. Sure, it seems rehash-y, but it's a really effective way of making money. Just keep what made the game so well-known and loved, and partially fix it up.

    I also like the factor of exploration in a game, as a huge map leaves you wondering what goes on beyond the borders. Games such as Grand Theft Auto and Skyrim use this mechanic beautifully, as you search the lands for new loot and things.
