Only time I really cared about lore is from the older halo games and like black op zombies easter eggs.

lore is really interesting if done right, otherwise its boring. Hollow knight has good lore, and i like that game a lot, and the lore definitely adds onto the experience. games don’t have to have a deeper story. Some games might not even really have a story but just random bits that the player is supposed to tie together, which is what minecraft does.

I really like games that have lore but the people who play the games don’t really the whole backstory. I just love it when there’s bits and pieces of the game’s world but there’s not really enough to figure out how to the puzzle creates the picture. It really makes players wonder even more about how the story really came to be.

world-building and lore are really important to a lot of games. it makes you feel way more immersed. some people may find it more interesting then others but without it the world can fall flat.
