I remember asking this same question years ago, but it got an awesome response and I'm keen to hear the answers of some of our newer readers! Imagine this: randomly you are given $100 million but there is a catch. You must use this money to create a game. Any profits from this game are yours to keep. What kind of video game do you make?
Do you make the kind of game you want to play? Do you make a game that you think will sell well? Do you attempt to occupy some sort of niche?
More importantly, what is the game? What genre? What are the mechanics?
