Interesting perspective, I think a bit of balance works better in reviews, too much on on side gets old.

If you are looking for quality storylines read a book.

That's because game journalists aren't qualified to review them.

And how would one become qualified? I don't think there is a bachelor of game story reviewing.

Just not sure how many games out there would get anything above a 7/10 if we focused as much on storyline as gameplay and how important story really is to us gamers just yet… Should a game be scored lower than one that plays worse but has a terrific story? And how can we justify reviewing Burn Zombie Burn (no story) and then putting lots of emphasis and/or pressure on an action/adventure’s storyline just because it has one?

Enh, I prefer game reviews to leave out a ton of story; that way we're surprised when we actually play it.
