I know it's better to have both a great story and a good gameplay, but in the event that one is better than the other, which is more important in your opinion? To start off, let's define stuff: Story: The plot, including the characters. Who are the characters? What do they do? How do they evolve? What happens in your game? So every aspect of storytelling. Gameplay: The whole experience of the player, including battles, maps, story (yes I include that), progression, menus, etc. So would you prefer a game with an okay story but a great gameplay, or a game with a really good story but an okay gameplay?
