If the story is good, I'm down. I love story-driven games, and as long as you're upfront about gameplay not really being a big factor, I can't see a real problem.

I'm fine with games that are entirely story-driven if the story grabs me. Then again, that's a good thing, as I'm making one! :elswt:

@joepmeloen There are things that cannot be done with just a book or a comic book, like voice over, choices, music, etc.
Visual Novels, for example, exist for a reason. As do books.
Gameplay is not all there is to use a digital support to tell a story.
Oh yeah you mean "movies". If you want to let character talk, moving visuals and music / sounds... you make a movie.
But I so get your point though.

I'm not sure what movies you're watching that somehow manage to have choices.

On netflix they have...
I don't have Netflix but I doubt it's as complex as a Visual Novel, simply because it's impractical to do in movies.

But I understand where you're going.
If you can have unlimited budget, you can make a game in the real world, so why make a game?

Not to be sarcastic or anything. If you want a story, write a book.
If you want a visual story write / draw a comic-book.
If you want to make a game, make the gameplay good if not fantastic...

Maybe its an option for you to create a story driven game that has: puzzles and minigames to keep it interresting. Like defeat the boss with a mini game or something.
This may be how you feel about the games you buy and play (as well as generally the media you like) but this isn't a universally shared point of view; personally I think, for example, that the visual novel medium is fascinating.

I believe that if a person wants to tell a story, they can do it within any medium they have access to. If they get something out of the medium, it can be worthwhile for a player.
