Crysis 2. Its a bit like Half-Life in that you don't talk but everyone is K and the plot progress VERY well. Really fun title to play through again just for the story ride and good game play in between.

The Zero Escape series: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors, and Virtue's Last Reward. If it weren't for these amazingly written sci-fi puzzlers, I would never have gotten into visual novels.

not sure I can think of any better than The Walking Dead, it is the only game that really made me feel like my decisions counted, Bioshock Infinite, Metal Gear Solid and Persona 4 come close but Walking dead is beyond anything I have seen before. If you haven't already go play it lol

My vote is for the Mass Effect series, the Assassin's Creed series, or the Bioshock series.

Xenogears gets my vote, too. In terms of sheer audacity and complexity, it attempted more in its storytelling than anything else at the time, and very few games have come anywhere close to it since. The great thing about it, IMO, is that it manages to juggle being deadly serious with being side-splittingly funny (and cramming in so many obscure references that you'd have to be some kind of culture wizard to get them all).

Nier- the most gut wrenching story I've ever played through.
Then Yakuza 1 and 2 - Oyabuuuuun!!!!
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater- the Boss is awesome.
Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky- It had a really nice story and the ending was great. Can't wait for the second one.

1. Fire Emblem Awakening: that was a great story.

2. Final Fantasy IX

3. Dragon Quest viii, vii, ix, and v

4. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

5. Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, ocarina

6. Pokemon mystery dungeon explorers of the sky (as opposed to the main games it does actually have a story even if it as a little childish)

Tie breaker between BlazBlue, Mario Galaxy, and Klonoa 2.

Definitely the Assassin's Creed series

But only up to Revelations...

AC3 sucked and I haven't played Black Flag yet.

Snake Eater, other than that I was pretty floored by Bioshock Infinite
