Ignoring fighting games, how important is the story to you in a video game that you get? Are you a "Story mode sucks in most/ all games. I prefer gameplay!" type of person? Or do you feel that story mode is just as important, or even more important than the gameplay itself?
I NEED a good story in RPGs. For FPS/TPS it depends on the game. I only play Halo, Gears of War, and Killzone for the multiplayer modes (don't give a crap about the story) For sports games, I enjoy a good story, but it's not necessary..

Story can enhance the overall experience though it isn't always necessary. It's not about what is more important but how it is implemented in the game itself. Choosing story vs. game play vs. graphics are all false dilemmas.
the bitter truth is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. ~ Anton Ego
yeah, like others said, it depends on the game and genre. but a good balance is needed. an amazing story with broken controls or something is terrible. and a game with great gameplay but zero story (that "should" have story. like an rpg or something) might be fun for a bit but wont have lasting appeal for me. gameplay usually hooks me in, but story is generally my endgame
