Grim Fandango



Definately Grim Fandango.

Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

Oh, right.

I haven't played most of Schafer's best, but Psychonauts has a special (permanent) place in my heart. The man really does get game narratives.

Betrayal at Krondor, easily.

I think that's on GOG now. Is it worth grabbing?

Without a doubt! It is still probably the best game I've ever played with the best story I've ever come across in a game and mechanics and ideas that were lightyears ahead of its time. Go go go! I still play it at least once every year.

End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

any Super Mario game. you know, princess gets kidnapped, Mario goes through hell and back, beats bowser, saves princess. Classic!

or pac-man if you want to get really complex.

The Mass Effect story line is my fav.

I can't say anything about Mass Effect until the third one. The ending is the most important part of the story. Mess that up, and you have yourself a Godfather III.

Metal Gear Solid as a series.

Final Fantasy VII as a single entry.

Star Wars KOTOR or Mass Effect. Honourable mentions for Planescape Torment, System Shock 2 & FFVII.


Madden NFL 2004.

It just had such a strong narrative.
