Loved: The ability to rip discs to the HDD so that it essentially eliminated disc noise, and cut down on disc and drive wear-and-tear. This was for the 360, the PS3 was very limited in this regards.

Hated: Greedy corporate policy, which includes On-Disc DLC, obscene DRM, and the "Always On-Line" requirements.

Hope: None. I am not foolish enough to believe that the stupid DLC, DRM, and other Corporate greed policies will go away, they will only increase in practice.

Loved: The jump to HD. Did not fully appreciate my PS3 or 360 until I got my HDTV.

Hated: DLC. Games are now stripped of content, which is then sold to us in the form of DLC. I no longer buy games at full price because I no longer get full games. There are exceptions (Rockstar & Bethesda do DLC correctly)

Hope for: More original IP's. We got Gears of War, Uncharted, Infamous, Mass Effect, and a lot of other great franchises this gen. Most of those are getting a little stale now, so I'm excited to see what the future holds.

Loved: The rise of XBLA

Hated: Corporate greed totally invading the gaming world with shoddy DLC, DRM, and online passes.

Hope: More developers taking risks in style and gameplay with unique new IP's. I'm totally burned out on Halo/Gears/Assassins Creed.
Wolf Parade, Swan Lake, Built to Spill, Sunset Rubdown, The Hold Steady, Modest Mouse, Handsome Furs, Plants and Animals

Loved: XBLA, and the Mass Effect series for being the pinnacle of gaming.

Hated: Whiny entitled gamers who want moar moar moar and rage at the prospect of actually paying for it.

Hope: More experimentation with AAA retail games, though I don't actually expect this to happen. Games are too expensive to make and a few cookie cutter franchises take the bulk of sales.
My mad face and my happy face are the same.

Loved - arcade games, sadly enough because it appeals to my old school tastes.

Hated - the increased shift towards social gaming, because most randoms are d-bags, and I don't like playing most games with anyone.

Hope - more old school style games, like Dragon's Crown, as well as some more beautiful shoot em up games.

Good to see more people are in the same boat as me than I thought who are hoping the future brings some exciting new IPs that actually try something new but still have an emphasis on the old-school.
