Why are video games trying to become movies?

Games like The Last of Us, Bioshock, Infinite, and Tomb Raider are all being universally praised because of their movie like experience despite their gameplay either being nothing special or completely mediocre.

Giving these movie like games such praise just encourages the game industry to make more interactive movies than actual video games.

Why are trolls always trying to get attention? Oh that's right, because no one IRL loves them or wants anything to do with them, because they are social degenerates.

Marked btw.

People want story and it's given in great presentation. To say the gameplay is mediocre is pathetic. It's a good system.

Some people think if a game has cut scenes, it means the gameplay automatically sucks.

Western developers are embarrassed to play video games that look
like video games

By making video games that look like movies, they plan to become
accepted by society
