Video games have more potential but are actually just complete fucking garbage on the same tier as anime and super hero movies.
The reasons are simple:
>The people who work on them are manchildren with no taste; the stories are insultingly bad. In fact, a lot of video games that get praised for their story actually have some of the dumbest ones in the entire medium (see: metal gear, mass effect, final fantasy, japanese RPGs in general), so the consumers, "gamers", also have awful taste.
>Gameplay is incredibly limited by our current technology. You are not the "main character" in a video game no matter how much you want to believe it. There's no freedom, you can only do a limited set of moves and the AI reacts in a limited pre-determined way.
Film is an established medium with a lot of history, it's only natural that it has higher standards.
Movies are better for sheer artistic value, creative cinematography can portray moods and ideas better than video game play can.
Vidya is better as self insertion is stronger, allowing a person to be more morally invested, such as TLOU. Also some games have the potential to have variable story's or endings based on the players decisions, such as FO:NV or undertale.
