I like creating my own
compelling story/experience. That's why I like Bethesda's RPGs so much. I feel like a actually am
playing a role, and I have a large degree of control over what that role is and how I play it. It may not jive with a developer-created storyline, but I'm fine with taking their starting point (Lone wanderer, ex-con, etc) and doing my own thing.
I do hate multiplayer, though
