Quite honestly, I'm usually the opposite. If it's got a good, intriguing storyline, I will likely look over boring or generic gameplay (such as Spec Ops: The Line).

However, there are times where the gameplay does hinder the experience to the point where I'd rather just read a summary of the story at most (Final Fantasy 13/13-2, for example)

Far Cry 3, rotten story, fun to play. The Walking Dead, great story, point and clicky on the zombie heady gameplay. So game dependent.

Gameplay is more important to me.

I'm not going to force myself to play a game with horrible gameplay no matter how good the story is, I'll just watch a lets play. (metal gear 4)

However, I will play a game with a terrible story if the gameplay is fun
(Pokemon, Diablo, duke nukem)

For "adventure" games like TWD, the story is more important.
For RPGs, the story is almost as important as the gameplay.
For the other kinds of games, the gameplay is more important.

Gameplay for me. Story is nice but not as important. It is a GAME after all.
