I love video games on all platforms be it PC or x-box 360 or PS3, all though PC is by far my favorite.
In a good Game you have a combination of every art form, 3D art, 2D art, artistic and flowing dialog, music, and they even have whole movies in them.
My favorite game is Supreme commander 2 with the Revamp mod; there is nothing ells like it, it has a massive scale, cool units, beautiful graphics, and outstanding explosions, in my opinion it is the best RTS in the world.
A bad game is easy to some up, anything that is made for money and not for the love of the art form.
My 2 favorite game studios are THQ and GPG.
For some reason I can't stand games that are based in WW2 or anything noob friendly, noob friendly simply means to easy "Assassins Creed games" but don't get me wrong the Assassins Creed games are good games there just WAY to easy.
