GTA: San Andreas has a quite deep storyline, as well as realistic, so it kind of touched me when i finished the last mission.
if you read this, get a life.

Dead Rising 2. The ending where you're unable to prevent Chuck's daughter from turning into a zombie. Start the video at 34 seconds. Dude lost his wife in a zombie outbreak. Now he has nothing left. You have to feel for him.

Which is amazing, considering that 13 is pretty bad in terms of storytelling. Not the worst (1 and 2 had little more than an excuse plot, and X-2 just plain sucked) but pretty far behind every other game in the series.

Also, FEAR. Jesus Pancake-Flipping Christ FEAR. I've played through it several times. Each time, I start with "Well I'm sure this time it won't be as scary because I know where everything is so it shouldn't scare me that much. Kind of like the Doom games, right?" WRONG! Turns out, even the crap I know is coming still scares the crap out of me. The tagline for the second game was "Fear Alma Again." I don't think that's a very good tagline, because it implies that at some point I stopped fearing Alma.

I am well beyond over hearing 13 derided as being a bad game, having a poor story, etc etc.

The number of people I can identify as having recited the litany of FF13 bashing and having actually gone far enough into the game to have an opinion on it I can count on one hand. Was it a mass consumption Final Fantasy? Yes. Big F'ing deal. Every FF has been different from the beginning and each game provides a completely different feel. I question people every time they say 13 isn't a "True" FF game because the series can't even correctly or consistently define itself.

FF13 had character development, showed emotional build up, employed a good amount of careful, NOT heavy handed foreshadowing (looking at you X), and placed characters in a final situation where there was no right answer. It wasn't clean and it wasn't neat and at the end, things were lost. The setting and tone, scope and evolution of the story was well plotted even if the gameplay was linear (I don't think the story could have evolved on a group of fugitives if it had been open-world). The music framed the whole thing well.

So, no. It's not "amazing" that I would find the game and story to be something worthwhile. From Snow's false bravado proving to be something he's actually thought out, to Lightning showing regret and reconnecting to her humanity, to Sazh breaking down into a suicidal wreck, Hope being a terrible whiny emo baby and being forced to grow up, and Vanille being a really bad person hiding behind a smile; all of the characters contribute to a worthwhile story.

Honestly, the only one who's kind of off is Fang and the whole thing there is that she doesn't know who she is and as a result consistently makes bad decisions regarding people who should be her friends.

If you did somehow meant in your response that I am unable to recognize good story telling or that I haven’t played enough or varied games to know better, then take the pseudo intellectualism and shove it.

However,

I'm not entirely sure you meant to be snide in your response to me. If you didn’t, then consider this simply a response to your statement and no hard feelings.

No, I didn't mean it as a snide remark or anything. I just feel 13 is, as far as Final Fantasy games go, very subpar. (I made it to Orphan's Cradle, mind you)

[color=deeppink]Vandal Hearts II. I don't think I've ever played a game before with such richness, depth and believeable characters combined with some real thought into the storyline and the analogies it draws up.


The ending where you become mayor and live with Rosaly is my fave. I love the Joshuas speech about heroism, saying that he isn't the hero of the war because heros don't kill others.

For me its the obligatory death of Aerith in FFVII. Say what you will about the game, but that scene was handled perfectly, all the way down to the depressing music during the Jenova fight shortly after.

FFVIII is one that comes clearly to mind for me. Like FFVII before it, there was a solid relationship being built, while all this calamity was going on in the world around them.

I remember one scene where Squall had to carry Rinoa piggy-back across this bridge that seemed like it would never end. That sequence definitely made me feel good...just about everything, people, the world, etc. And all from a little video game.

There have been others, in other games, but as video games go, that's one that leaps to the forefront for me.

The game story was amazing, it pulled you in and you felt like you and Jade (the main character) were connected. It was an awesome experience.

At some point, its going to stop being scary, the creepiness will wear off, and the atmosphere will lose it's punch. Still, really damn good game, even if it weakens over time.

Can't believe I forgot Fire Emblem. There are always certain characters in each game that I end up feeling kinda attached to, and it makes it harder to decide how to play the game when you want to keep them alive.

I've never been scared of any game in my adult life. I remember finding the original Alone In The Dark creepy many a year ago (just checked and that was 1992), and thanks to Giga Darkseed has some truely disturbing visuals.

The Final Fantasy games, especially 7, which might be the greatest game ever IMO, and Kingdom Hearts. The Square Enix games are just so well made that it goes beyond the gameplay and you actually get immersed in the stories and issues the characters are going through. Great storylines, great characters, deep issues, fantastic music= FEELING

Final Fantasy 7. Can't believe I got all choked up when Aeris died. There hasn't been an RPG that made me care as much for the characters as FF7 did.

FF8 ranks as number two only because of the less coherent plot. Still, the way Squall slowly opened himself to his friends and Rinoa was played out very smoothly.

Surprisingly, Dirge of Cerberus gives me the warm and fuzzies every time I played through it. Vincent's story with Lucretia had always interested me, and the cutting edge CGI cutscenes in which the story was told helped a lot.

The Yakuza games rank a close third, especially Yakuza 3. The cutscene where the Sunflower orphanage gets demolished was the only time I actually rooted for a bunch of yakuza.

GTA IV's Nico Bellic was awesome as a sympathetic character forced into a life of crime. His relationship and banter with Roman was one of the highlights of the game as far as character development is concerned.

Is it strange that I feel Ace Combat 4 had a great story? The whole story being told from the viewpoint of a guy whose family was taken out by the ace pilot you killed in the end was a nice touch, telling the war from the eyes of a layman. The anime stills lent a nice atmosphere, too.

I kind of felt a connection to #6, and I had nothing but respect for here once I finished the big boss battle at the end.
I also shared her pain when she felt the hive and Queen die.
Which is strange because the other two characters didn't give me nearly the same experience.

The final scene of Resistance 2, damn I was devastated and dissapointed after seeing what happened to Sargent Hale.

Also strange because she's a parasitic alien who repeatedly murders innocent people, or, if not directly killing them, helping attach a facehugger to them so they can die slowly of giving "birth" to a new Xenomorph. Never mind that Xenomorphs are, as a species, giant walking rape metaphors.

That's the strange part, since I was expecting the human and Predator campaigns to have a larger connection to me, since you know me being human and all, and the Predator being (relatively) more human than a Xenomorph. What makes it even strange is that, I grew up freaking shitting my pants just by seeing an image of a Xenomorph, I freaking hated them growing up, without even seeing a movie with them, just based on the horrors I was described by others.

I would agree with the user who said The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. In addition, I would also say Metal Gear Solid, the original for the PlayStation.

I have to admit I was heart broken when Aria died in Final Fantasy 7. I did not expect that and was really rooting for her and Cloud to build a romance. It was perhaps the only time when romance is killed (a story line over abused in tv shows and movies...and I mean OVERABUSED) that impacted me. To this day I haven't been able to complete that game.
