Story doesn't matter, not even in RPGs.

And when it does somehow, annoying unskippable cutscenes are merely replaced by annoying unskippable gameplay.

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.

I agree with you. Of the hundreds of games I've beaten, I can only think of 3 that I cared about the storyline. It certainly can add to a game if done just right, but for the most part I feel it only gets in the way.
My top 5 games:Metroid Prime 2:Echoes, Shadow of the Colossus, Donkey Kong Country 2, TimeSplitters 2, Trackmania:Build to Race

if its a story based game, like p4g, then i care immensely. but something like ninja gaiden or mario or any really action based games, couldnt care less.

(note: those were the first two games i saw on my shelf)

It really depends on the type of game.

Every game should have at least some kind of story, even if it is just in the instruction manual.

It is important but there are plenty of games that don't focus on it and are absolutely fantastic (Bayonetta/DMC/whatever else). Those types that absolutely refuse to play a game that doesn't have a story that they believe (or what Kotaku told them to believe) is "deep" (Aka: pretends to be deep) have brain problems.
Wonder when they're going to realize that I don't care about karma?
