Sex would bore me to tears in a computer game - but I'm probably not normal in that way. It's like strip clubs. If I can't have it myself - then I shut off and I don't engage myself
I'm thinking pure exploration/immersion might work - but it would take a level of content density which would most likely be prohibitively expensive in manhours to produce.
But I think I could go for a game like Bioshock Infinite / System Shock without combat - just as long as there were other interesting things I could do in terms of interacting with the environment.
If they expanded hacking, for instance, to include a sophisticated and semi-realistic OS - where you had to actually hack stuff to gain access to new systems. That might be cool.
