The thing people don't realize about video games is that they are not merely just games to play. They are a multi-purposed medium that do many different things. They implement music, story, playing, technological advancements, modeling and art design, fashion and vocal talents....
If you want a story, you read a book, but don't expect music, voices, playing or technology and most fashion and design is up to your imagination.
If you want music, you listen to a band but don't expect playing so much as practice and work. Fashion can play a part in it and so can design and can also tell a story but it isn't much of a story unless it's at least a little poetic as poetry and music go hand in hand.
If you want to play, you play board and card games. There's no story involved, no music (usually), though there is design and sometimes fashion depending on what you are playing.
Video games are like a culmination of all of these mediums and can even mimic them to a point which is why even if it doesn't have good gameplay, we can enjoy it for story, design or music. You can also enjoy a game purely for it's gameplay but not care about it's music or story. Maybe it's just it's artistic design or technological marvel that attracts you? Well that's okay too.
