On a scale of 1-10, how much do you care about the story in a game?

1 for me. I buy games to play them. I don't need to feel an attachment to the characters or the story. Only reason there's a 1 is because if the cutscenes look good, I'll watch them and pay attention.

It really depends on the game. Story is kinda important in RPGs and Adventure games.
Console wars are like pissing contests. So yeah.

I care if the story is overly dark.

Depends on how story driven the game is.
My sig will never happen, but it would be awesome if it did.

1 until it gets in the way, then it shoots up because it's detracting from the gameplay. Case and point: Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid.

It depends on the game, man.

Depends on the game, if they are going for a Trilogy then an 8, a 10 if it's an RPG.

There are three types of people on GameFAQS...those that agree with me, those that are wrong, and those that are insane

Can you people STOP being this freaking dense?!

For RPGs, if the story is crap, why did you even bother making the game?

For Action, just have an interesting cast and story.
