    I really love the idea of using games as a storytelling medium and therefore respectfully disagree with your thoughts on this topic. I think bringing interactivity to a cinematic experience is a great way to make it excel, which is the reason I love games like Heavy Rain, the Walking Dead, Witcher 2 and most Bioware games. Gameplay is of course very important, but there are games out there with substandard gameplay which have excelled for me due to story, a perfect example being To the Moon or Dear Esther. There will always be a place for mechanics driven gamey games, but I love it when video games are used as a unique way to tell a story.
