This is actually the most 'discussed about' topic around the web as far as I've seen without actually being the core topic of the argument/discussion, and has been discussed very 'negatively so'.
A lot of people game for different reasons, and I think it comes down to Story and Gameplay- but Graphics is also involved as well. Some people play for the gameplay and doesn't give a 'crap' about the story or graphics, and feels like it is an unnecessarily component to gaming. Others care mildly about the gameplay and focus more on the story. Others prefer Great Story and Good Gameplay (along with acceptable/satisfying graphics). Perhaps, someone else likes Great Graphics, Poor Story and Solid Gameplay.
Which category do you fit in?
Don´t know if its age or that i have more limited time to play games, but gameplay just isent important. Graphics can be kinda important but doesnt matter if the story is good.
