I am going to have to strongly disagree.
Gameplay and presentation are by far more important then a games story and characters.
If your presentation sucks, no one will care about the games story. I should note that a good presentation does not mean hyper realistic graphics and/or becoming a king of graphics (ex: Undertale has good presentation).
If a game does not have good gameplay, nobody will stick around to finish your game to even enjoy the story.
If someone wants to make a really good story and doesn't really care much about the gameplay itself, I suggest making a book instead. It is a better medium for story telling and allows for more depth without having the story bogged down by sub-par gameplay.
nothing is "more important" than the other. if one is lacking then the entire game sucks, period.
