For me its tlou and upcoming tlou2, yes I know most people on here say gameplay over story but this isn’t true for every game, at least not for me personally

Detroit Become Human and games of its ilk kind of require a great story because the gameplay is mediocre at best.

I'd have to put most Naughty Dog games in there as well, not really because their gameplay is weak, more because their storytelling is so good.

Honestly after going back to the Witcher 3, its gameplay and mechanics are very cumbersome for today's standards, so really its the story and presentation that knocks it out of the park.

Dragon Quest 5.

That game has one of the best storylines I've ever seen in a game, while the gameplay is classic Dragon Quest.

And don't get me wrong, I LOVE the Dragon Quest games' gameplay, but DQ5 is probably the only game in the series that could play like s*** and I would still like it, due to how good and epic the story is.

Like...any point and click, survival horror, or jrpg game. Literally any story driven game, as that's the point.

I wouldn't say I agree with this.

I've played plenty of JRPGs with a crappy storyline just because they are fun to play. Grandia comes to mind: the story is meh, but the gameplay is hella fun.

Same for survival horror games, some of them are fun and I DO like the gameplay in them a lot, specially the older ones that had more puzzles than combat.

Any visual novel to be honest.
90% slideshow, with 10% interactive gameplay.

Yup Visual Novels.
Last decent one release (and currently playing 428 shibuya)
I actually hate the choice aspect......its a complete mind f*** trying to figure out how to get all the bad endings without a guide.

Id rather the games choices and the jumping between characters being cut down and simplified.
Either way I highly recommend 428 Shibuya to anyone.....maybe just do the first 2 hrs (in-game) blind and follow a guide for the remainder of the game
