Absolutely, I mean they'd be nothing to do, it would be uncompleteable, you'd just wonder round aimlessly until you turn it off.

Only if they plan on selling the game.

nope but I prefer them with it. Just look at Pacman, Tetris, Minecraft and Angry Birds... 4 of the most successful video games of all times and none of them have any story at all.

Not always, but my favorite games all have excellent (or at least entertaining) stories: BioShock, Assassin's Creed, Fallout, Uncharted, Mass Effect, inFamous, Heavy Rain, Gears of War, God of War. The narrative is what keeps me going.

Story's the only reason I play video games. Multiplayer just complimentary. If there's no plot then there's no point in playing.
