Video game stories are still pretty bad overall but are given leeway for being bad at them because they're videogames. Beyond Two Souls is an example. Terrible story, dialogue, characters, etc and if it was a movie it'd be utterly panned.
See, I think things like that are incredibly subjective. I would totally love Beyond if it was just a movie. It had great action scenes, I enjoyed the characters, and I found it had many strong emotional scenes. Also, it would be more suited for a miniseries or TV show as opposed to a movie, but that's just an aside. Regardless, I just don't think statements like that are true.
