Ok who here likes to have the control over your characters like for ex. Skyrim rather then reading a book where you can not put skill points into what makes you unique? :D

Those two aren't very similar... You should compare books with movies, not video games...
Now if you wanted to compare written roleplay with video games (two things that are more alike) you can tell that literacy comes out the victor. Just like how books are more often than not, better than the movies, written roleplay is better than games. In games you can change a few things, but in roleplay you can create a character literally from scratch.
If you like them for showing how unique someone is, videogames lose.

Versus? Versus!?!?!? Can I love them both?
 
I'm not really outraged, just having a joke :P
 
But really, I like them both. It's hard to compare books and videogames. Much easier to compare books and films, or films and videogames.
 
There's more common ground with those areas, which makes the differences easier to analyse, whereas with books and videogames, there are far more variables to consider.
