Saint Louis, MO
Contacts, friends, meaningful discussions about games, experience, internship? :p
Not necessarily complex, but has strategic and/or tactical depth. Highly replayable. Refined, "nothing left to take away". Sufficient amount of tension. No dominant strategy. Not necessarily entirely unique, but does not copy game mechanics due to genre conventions. Every game mechanic is meaningful to the overall experience of the game.
To meet people in the game industry. Networking. To gain experience working with a team.
The cake is a...pie?
