Players will burn through content faster than it can be created.
I've read that a good number of times across several games from different devs. The quality of content the vocal crowd wants simply takes time. I've proposed/asked for systems, myself. Content is great, and I love it, but at the same time there needs to be systems, games-within-the-game, for people to involve themselves in.

I think that we need a good mix between theme-park (story content) and sandbox. I'd like to see more systems created that enable players to interact with and against each other, even if indirectly.
