Also Interesting. (Destiny)

For example, Alan Wake 2. Now it's very immersive, and I've been loving the story. But the gameplay is just the most basic 3rd person shooter you can get. I'd struggle to call it a good video game.

But is shooting the entirety of the 'gameplay'? What else do you do in the game? Lots of things are fun to do in games that don't involve combat.

Bare-bones inventory management and braindead puzzles. GREAT atmosphere though...

Mass Effect combat was absolute dogshit, yet people still seemed to love the game fine because it had other roleplaying elements to do.

Right, shooting was bad but (I haven't played it) wasn't there more to it? Powers, and companions, and managing your cover? Seem to recall discussion of that nature, that if you're playing Mass Effect by shooting your way out then you're doing it wrong.
