Catchy = Instantly appealing and memorable.
That’s a great description for any video game, really.
But deciding on whether a game is catchy or not really comes down to the player’s preferences, and it can vary greatly from one person to another.
Games that are appealing and captivating to some, might not be so to others.
But yes, some games are generally more catchy than others, and this comes down to a few factors:
- Story. Is the story in the game able to captivate you and keep you glued to the screen for the entire length?
- Character design. Games with great character design usually draw more players in, due to the fact that everyone wants to play their new favorite character. The more interesting characters a game has, the better!
- Gameplay. This goes without saying that the gameplay is the most important factor when deciding whether a game is catchy or not.
- Progression system. A progression system is known to keep players coming back. Some great progression systems in games today include levelling, gathering items, building a base and progressing through dungeons where you have to slay bosses to move on.
