How Much Does Story Matter?

There has been a constant debate between gamers regarding the merits of gameplay versus narrative. Oftentimes, this debate springs up during discussions of Japanese RPGs, such as the Final Fantasy series. Arguably, Final Fantasy titles have strong narratives, but aren’t very interesting to play. As video games become increasing complex, the narratives that fuel them are becoming increasingly ambitious. Mostly recently, Spec Ops: The Line has been the subject of major discussion regarding its dark and mature themes. (Culture, Final Fantasy, Spec Ops: The Line, Super Smash Bros. Brawl)

If there's a story, it matters quite a bit.... wait.

" Arguably, Final Fantasy titles have strong narratives, but aren’t very interesting to play."

Nevermind. Not worth the time to even continue.
