Now i'm sure i'm not the only one, but i absolutely adored games where the story was everything. Games where the game play was the worst thing and just finishing that boss to get more story was the thing that got you hooked. Games like Persona 4, the character development in that game was perfect and every character was very unique and felt real a lot of the time. They had real people issues and you became apparent to that in a very realistic way. A few games for example are Ico (A PS1 classic) and Shadow Of The Colossus. Ico was a game where you were in a foreign castle and had to escape with someone you didn't speak the language of. Shadow of the Colossus was very similar in how there was little to no speech. The story was told through what you did and escaping this castle and turned out for both games to be extremely emotional because of this.
Now maybe i'm a little biast because i absolutely despise this generation in gaming. Big company's pumping out the same game remade every year or so and new games with every interesting and amazing ideas being completely under the radar to almost everyone. I have to say, I haven't played a game in the past 2 or so years that had a game all about story. It was either all about the game-play (mostly shooters) or based around online or something like that. I mean there are a few examples such as Assassin's Creed but i still don't count the story and characters in that game as great. Is it me or are the days of Story Games almost gone?
