I look at a quote like this one and I laugh at the fact that different people are going to look at it differently when it is taken out of context. Is it a negative limitation, a back-handed compliment, or the words of someone who thinks games can do much more then people expect out of them currently? It doesn't help that this particular person hasn't exactly been known for games with a story of any kind.

This in mind, I can't help but think of a game like "Blade Runner", from WAY back. This was a game that allowed you to make many decisions and had like 7 or more possible endings I believe. The story possiblities were many, and everyone who played the game likely experienced a slightly different version of the story overall. I read his quote and that is what I think he referring to. I don't think he means it as a limitation but instead a strength of the medium.
