Both but i want a good story more then gameplay. ^-^ The storyline must be intresting and Disgaea has a really funny story line, it makes the whole game so fun. Just runing around and dont have a good reasone for it isnt that funny.

I say story but it's almost a tie, then comes music and as long as a game has this three aspects then it is a great game, I love both gameplay and story but I don't like playing if I do not feel anything for the character I am controlling. But also if I want a story I should go watch a movie instead of playing a game because the point of it all is to play, not just sit back and listen to a story. Whatr every game needs is a good combination of both

I'd say story,since it usually the story that would make me want to play the game in the first place.
but the game can mess up with really lousy gameplay.

there has to be a balance of both..
most of time of course u'll be playing..
than just watching cut scences and conversations..
so gameplay is more important so that
u won't get bored to the consecutive hours of playing..

You have to look at lots of things, like characters, what type of game it is, how long it is.
Shorter games can get by with a decent gameplay and mediocre story, but the longer the game is the more need it has for a good story. That's why action games and shooting games which are 5-15 hours in length usually have mediocre stories compared to RPGS which usually have better stories but amount anywhere from 20-80 hours in length on a single playthrough. These days though you need to have solid game play

If they create a brand new game and expect me to get by with attack magic special item commands on an RPG I'm going to put it right back in the box, unless I'm reminiscing by playing an old or remade gameI don't want to see such bland gameplay in an RPG ever again.

But it all depends on what type of game I'm playing, RPGs have a higher standard of story and lower standard of gameplay to me.
If I'm playing an action or fighting game, story amounts to more or less nothing. I've spent a lot of time on Soul Calibur... well all of them. And the story is more or less crap on a stick.

hard one you need both for a good game and I'm leaning on both sides

Both, I'd say. But I'd also play a game with awesome gameplay and no story, or amazing story and shitty gameplay. It always depends.

If it is a RPG it has to be Story or plot. Other kind of games it's all about gameplay, after all it's all about the fun, who would play a shitty game just because of the story, if you only want to have fun that is.

Truth be told I could easily play a game if it has a great story dispite the bad gameplay if it has good game play thats just a bonus, but if a game has great gameplay but a bad or very little story I get bored or just do not want to play it

Both, gameplay first than story (without gameplay it would be like a comic book)
