Is fun or meaning more important for video games?

Does a game need to be fun to have merit, or can inspiring ideas alone make the experience worthwhile?

The story is too old to be commented.

Great points. A one-size-fits-all measuring stick doesn't work for judging quality.

It's a video game. FUN! Duh!

Eh. A game can have all the meaning and inspiring ideas in the world, but if it isn't fun to play then I won't stick around to discover them.

Inspiring ideas and meaning can certainly add to the fun for many people and make for a more profound experience.

If inspiring ideas are making the experience worth while you might just be having fun.

It is nice to see an article like this. Great to see a website churning out something other than lists, well done.

Enjoyment is most important.
