About a month ago I started asking people to determine what the most important elements are in a game for making it great (e.g. Fun, Replayability, Game Mechanics, etc). You can see some initial analysis of that here:
What Factors are most Important to a Game?

I then asked people rate the top games on BGG against these factors.

Due to the initial order of the polls a number of what turned out to be key factors did not get many votes. If you have some time to vote on these then you can find them here:
What Makes a Game Great?

If you have more time you can see all the polls for all the factors here:

I plan to analyse and publish all these results soon.

Finally, Dominion: Intrigue has crashed into the Top 20 (currently #13) since I set these polls up. It would be great to get it included. Rate it here, from 4 (Great) to 0 (Bad) on each factor:
