That's honestly something I never understood about the difference between "stories" and "literature". A story's value can only be attained by what YOU as the reader put into it. I'm a Lit major, so I'm not just speaking out of my ass here, but I find most of what literary snobs call "true literature" to be boring and dry. I see the literary value in the story, and I understand the meaning behind it, but I still find the Warcraft story much more interesting and entertaining and thus, to me personally, it holds much more value. For merely a "video game story", the Warcraft universe is vibrant and detailed, and full of characters just as memorable as some of the best characters from literary history. It probably won't stand the test of time alongside Homer and Shakespeare, but that doesn't make it any less valuable.
