The way I understand the video game medium as it encompasses other mediums/elements is...

1)Interactivity & Visuals.
2)Sound effects
3)Force Feedback
4)Music
5)text

Because 80% of our sensory perception comes from sight, visuals are important communicative tools in video games. This is why form fits function is such a big deal.

In the same way that movies/tv shows use dialog as a crutch to explain themselves instead of using visual story telling, using text in a video game is even worse.

For a video game...

1) Interactive/mechanical/in game story telling is the most effective
2) Visual Story telling.
3) Then explanatory audio
4) Finally explanatory text.

Using text without visuals of any kind is the worse way to go as it ignores the two things that video games do best... interactivity and visuals.
