Whilst I respect your right to have an opinion, I must say that yours is in fact rather incorrect.

personally an emphasis on 'Story" makes for the worst adventure games, in my opinion.

The core of what made adventure games fun for me was interacting with environments and solving puzzles. The best ones had incredibly SIMPLE story lines that could be summed up in just a few sentenses or paragraphs, if one had to.

Lots of "story" in an adventure game basically amounts to tons of long winded exposition that you have to sit and listen to, or tons of custscenes that you sit and watch.

I'd rather an incredibly simple setup like "you're in a haunted house, GO!" or "You're an adventurer in an ancient tomb, GO!" that leads to immediate interseting interactions than tons of "Eons ago, there were the trolls. And htey lived for thousands of years. And then they got in a war with the orcs. And that lasted eons. And then they were sacked by the ice goblins. And that lasted decades. And then came the great storms. And that lasted an age. And then came the age of the frost giants and blah blah blah boring boring boring."

You said you are a writer and you think that story = long-winded exposition. You've heard of indirect exposition?

Anyway, what you're basically saying is that you'd rather have no narrative than a bad story-teller. That's a fair statement, but a writer should understand that there is good story-telling and bad story-telling. To assume that all stories include long-winded exposition is naive.
