Many games have, at their core, a lot of plot, and good writing is essential to developing the kind of atmosphere you want your player to experience even if the player may not necessarily be reading text. And with games like RPGs (Assassin's Creed, The Witcher) and MMOs, that writing comes to the forefront as well in character interactions.
So definitely, yes.
