What are the most important things to you in a game?

I am talking about Gameplay, Story, Music, and, Graphics. Rank them in order of importance for you. This will be interesting for me, because I am a games developer and never have I seen a topic like this yet on gamefaqs.

For me:

1. Gameplay
2. Story
3. Music
4. Graphics

Music is almost important as the story, especially in non-narrative driven games.

Love Music mostly, but Gameplay and Camera Angles take top priority.

No matter how great a game, if controls aren't playable, I won't finish that game.

The most important things to me in a video game are!

sound/music: sometimes I would rather read than listen to bad voice acting.
