To an extent I agree with that you're saying. Where MS and Nintendo both strive for gameplay over interactive story telling. Which is why I prefer both Nintendo and MS' first party to Sony's (as of now). Would love it if Sony went back into their platform repitore.
I liked it when Sony made Medieval, Crash, Twisted Metal,Ect. However, now it seems more and more their games are going to the story route and cinematic experiences. Even GOW looks like cinematic experience now which frustrates me.
