Unfortunately, this does display John Carmack's apparently very limited experience with any sort of game genre outside those that he programmed himself, specifically oldschool FPS. Planescape: Torment had admittedly atrocious gameplay, yet it is loved for the story and way it unfolds alone.

No jack, dead wrong (this THE JC right here, but I won't get into that here) It means players are looking to do one thing primarily, and that is "play a video game". Story is there as a driving mechanic but gameplay to the JC is the most important aspect and the most heavily criticized when wrong.

It means John Carmack plays only a few specific video games and makes sweeping generalizations about the entire medium based on his limited experience.
