I get it, but there are games that give a movie like atmosphere and emotions that go beyond simple reflex traing or strategical thinking?

I just want to find a game that has the same emotional impact of a good movie but it's also fun to play. As i said, arkham has that extra-ooomph... There must be others.

PS: Mikey, Dreamfall is a lovely example. I already played it and loved it. Other suggestions?
