I'm not saying there's no room for what you're suggesting, all I'm saying is that it can't dominate the market given the current 'demand'.
And yet it thoroughly dominates literature, tv, and film.
I wonder why people think that games are somehow entirely distinct from those things?
Literature, TV and Film are passive forms of entertainment/media.
Games are active forms.
As a result, people that tend to prefer passive forms of entertainment, as a group, differ generally from those more involved in active forms.
That's not to say that Call of Duty players don't like a good Vin Diesel movie, but the likelihood of them liking Bridget Jones...
