    1. Durability (keys that last a long time without wearing out or going dead)
    2. Comfort (layout, key-press feel, palm rest)
    3. Backlit Keys (with custom colour choice)
    4. Programmable Macro Keys

    Another thing I like is the inclusion of a volume scroller wheel, but one that can be easily customised, so you can specify the increments/speed it changes at.

    The Homer Simpson factor; Oversized key caps
    Stability in platform and key action
    There should be a slide out mousepad
    In co-operation with game devs - key cap icons that change on the keyboard to match the games use for that key.

    My wife believes that a good keyboard must be waterproof, since she's under the impression it's my girlfriend and I make love to it every night.
    I'm more inclined to think durability is paramount, since my girlfriend likes it rough and I'm not one to say no.

    Knowing that you have actually pressed the key - tactile or audible click.
    Those times when you press a key and then realise KAK! I really didn't want to do that, if I let go then I will die...an undo key.

    The feel of the keys and how they respond to your touch, backlight feature, and the ability to turn the windows key off ;)

    There are a few items:
    1. Comfort especially spacing of buttons
    2. Backlit keys
    3. Macro keys with multiple profiles

    Responsiveness (N-key rollover, fast polling, mechanical switches for quick double taps), durability (constant mashing of buttons, keycaps that won't fade, can survive rage)

    Ambidexterity and ergonomics, because a true gamer can't afford any down time and has learnt to be adept with both hands minimising AFK

    That means (right handed people) learning w a s d with your right hand and the mouse with your left.

    needs to be robust, reliable, and able to handle being turned upside down and bashed on the desk (to remove detritus, not when rage-quitting)...

    1) It has to feel good
    2) Backlot for night gaming sessions
    3) look appealing

    Proper size and shape of the keys with just enough feedback with minimal pressure required to be fast with each key stroke but not too light.

    Responsive keys so I've got less to blame my poor K/D ration on.

    Backlit keys so I can stumble around in the dark, but still play.

    Not too many extraneous function keys that only get used rarely, when I hit one at a critical moment and it brings me back to the desktop.

    Volume control, because... that's good?.

    Everyone has basically covered the important points, but I would agree with ergonomics, response and durability (including the ability to withstand liquid spills). My old logitech mx3000 had the durability side of things covered, survived about 8 years (with a little abuse thrown in).
