It has gravitas. It means what the characters do and what happens to them have meaning. When you ignore continuity...nothing really matters. It's like serial versus episodic.

If the choices a character makes has ZERO lasting effect or lose interest. Why should Cap care that the Red Skull killed Buckey and so many people...ehhh...hes a nice guy for no reason all of a sudden and all those dead people mean nothing.

I don't mean be a slave to it...but it builds the world the universe...the other way feels like a petulant child kicking over a sand castle.

Not saying you don't have a point on people may prefer certain areas/eras of continuity.

People care about continuity when it's continuity they like. We're all too happy to forget the stories we didn't like.
