I believe a good story could carry a bad game, and a good game could carry a bad story, but I would choose good gameplay over a good story.

The story has gone so far off the rails that it doesn’t matter for me anymore. If the game is fun I’ll get satisfaction from it.

Gameplay over everything if I had to choose but in reality both would be my choice.

Depends on a game-by-game basis but I agree with you TC. Each can carry the other but I generally favor gameplay; if it's not fun or at least creative in some way, I'm less likely to care about the story.

Last of Us for example, it's 80% the writing. I don't think the gameplay is super innovative but the writing is top-notch and the gameplay works in that favor, immersing you in the world and story. Whereas with DMC I feel the opposite; the gameplay's crazy fun and that's why I can enjoy the ridiculous story.

KH is a little special. I care a lot about the characters, and about the Disney nostalgia and immersion, so in that sense the writing is extremely important to me. But I'm also iffy on the overall story sometimes (especially the lore, hence why I couldn't get into UX)... but the gameplay always helps ease that because it's so engaging. With KH3 I kind of... care equally, but with the other KH games (and possibly all future ones) I'd say gameplay edges out story in terms of importance.

See KH may have gone off the rails so to speak. But I've watched people play the games and understand to story. So while it's certainly buckwild it can still be followed. I want a satisfying conclusion to the Darkseeker Saga above all else. Gameplay is secondary, but not by much. I've enjoyed the gameplay of every PS4 port in the series. BBS and DDD may be lacking some of the pure fun of 1 and 2, but I still enjoyed them. 3 seems to be doing a good job combing all the elements I want.

This pretty much.

I'd say i still enjoy the story purely from atmosphere, but i won't deny that i don't care much about how will the plot go.
Xehanort's guardian is the will of Kairi's grandma. It will absorb Xehanort and become Kairi's grandma, the final villain!!!

I'm in it for the story. Sure some gameplay elements look promising but my main motivation will be to see how the story will play out.
