THis is imho the very best piece of "player opinion" I have read for years.

Everything is nailed down, hit the spot of it all, and is formulasted so that it doesn't allow a single "yes, but…" from, the side of the developer or the publisher.

Personally, I'd add Number 12:

12) Keep the world's environment as logical (according to the world's rules or at least according to common sense) as possible and don't create situations with "parachuting enemies" [like in Dragon Age 2] where the gamer is left wondering where they all come from ? Or why we didn't kill the boss but only his/her 5th body incarnation ?
Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
