Theres a certain group of gamers who just dont want the medium to evolve. Theyre just terrified at the idea that video games can tell just as good of a story as a movie or show.
What they fail to understand is that Games will share filmmaking techniques because theyre both visual mediums. You will never escape this fact. If you dont want a story in your game, stick to multiplayer games or something.
personally i disagree, i think the whole benefit of games as a medium is the interactive part and as soon as you're doing the slow-walk and talk shit or watching endless cutscenes the game has officially lost my interest. the key is to integrate the story with the actual gameplay so it isnt "play a little bit then take a break for story crap", something i think GoW did pretty well
