Graphics are not important.
Gameplay is not important.
Story is what can keep a game alive forever.
>>
No its definitely gameplay. The way your own narrative unfolds in strategy games can be just as compelling
>>
Yeah, that's why text adventures and point-n-click games are so successful to this day. No one cares about graphics nowadays.

Faggot.

Gameplay gets boring to replay. Just ask the supposed 'best game ever made' Deus Ex 1.
You can treasure a narrative much more.

Well consider the beloved Ace Attorney series. The gameplay isn't anything to write home about. The story is what keeps it relevant and remembered years after release.
>>
No, music is.

Graphics are a bonus

URGH!

YOU BITCH!

Gameplay is your direct interaction with the medium. Having glaringly bad gameplay will get in the way, gameplay that doesn't get in the way of the story is good gameplay.

Gameplay, A bit of a story, and it's not looking like Dwarf Fortress

boy, talk about a freudian slip

I'd say so. Good gameplay is functional and intuitive. Great gameplay you notice positively. A lot of RTS share very similar gameplay that changes depending on the system, but you can hop between them because core good RTS gameplay is common. Exceptionally bad or good gameplay will stand out

>>322997275
Not really. Once you know the story, that's it.

Simpletons generalize.
It all depends on the game and genre, applying the same standards across the board is a red flag that you are simple and deserving of contempt.

There are games I still enjoy that have almost no story at all and are pure gameplay, and there are games I enjoy that have weak gameplay but tell an interesting story.

Why can't we get more sickdark edgy games like WW?

Actually, it's the music.

Good game music brings you back immediately.

But there's really no purpose to replay those games after you've digested the story. You're literally just going through the motions. The most interesting thing you can expect to happen is that you forget where a clue is, or something similar.
On the other hand, in games like Prince of Persia even if you're going through the same routines the gameplay's focus on execution keeps things satisfying for longer, even if the player has a perfect recollection of every challenge he'll go through.
