"Attention" as in what? If you mean from the critics, then it's easily disproven, especially this year given the acclaim Disco Elysium got. If you mean from the public / sales, then you would be comparing Witcher 3, The Last of Us and Red Dead Redemption with Marvel films and the whole "film stories are better than videogames" immediately falls apart.No it's not. AAA games that emulate film get much more attention than games like Nier or Undertale. And this is down to game design as well, as in, game design that seeks to make it fee like you're playing an interactive film. Ofc, market interest trends have changed but the point still stands when Red Dead and GTA are making half a billion at release.
Your argument is "videogames are compared to films because the best selling videogames emulate film". Nevertheless that this is a leap in logic that makes absolutely no sense, then by this very argument films should be compared to comics.
