hmm.. well it may be old, but Dreamfall Longest Journey had a GREAT story. But there isn't much shooting or killing. It's a 3rd person game. It's cheap on ebay, here's a review. I loved the game. You do sit there for minutes watching the "movie"



also COD4 story awesome, COD5 shit, COD6 very good

Boycotting the game wont change the attitude of developers. It will just convince them more that PC gaming is dead. So anyone who plays PC games and doesnt want to buy an XBox, PS3 or some other godawful retardation like that to play games, will be royally fucked.

I think it's hilarious how this gigantic mass of nerds thinks that they will be making a difference, in an age where decisions are made only by marketing groups, audiences are puppets who takle what they're given and even programmers are worth less than zero in the making of those big budgeted games.

This gigantic infestation of whining asses who flood boards with their "i canceled my order" complaints will be the death of PC gaming (if a rotten corpse can die). Cue to some retard spouting nonsense about buying consoles (fuck you).
Well yeah, that's a different topic and the internet in a nutshell for you. The whole 'PC gaming is dead' thing seems to come around every few years and it's some silly shit.

I cringe when a developer says "cinematic" or "movie" in an interview - I don't play games to watch them ape another medium. It's always this way at first - early cinema emulated theatre before it found it's own path - but it's something we should be beyond at this point.

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?

Ah, well that's something else entirely. Your definitions are wonky. You ever play STALKER: Shadow of Chernobyl? Not much of a story but one of the most atmospheric games i've ever played.

If you have a PS3 Uncharted 2 is without a doubt the most cinimatic, beautiful game I've ever played. The voice acting and motion capture technology they use is leaps and bounds above any other game so far this generation. It feels like you're playing a movie.

MW2 is easily one of the best games of the last ten years. Sure, the storyline has its holes; Russia invades over one American CIA operative being found at the scene of a genocide. Its adrenaline rush campaign with gorgeously rendered surroundings, however, is only furthered by expansive multiplayer and co-op play. When was the last time anyone had this much fun with a first person shooter? Hell, when was the last time anyone had this much fun with a video game?

haha i like mw2 a lot, but not as far to say best in 10 years. It's a multiplayer game where you shoot each others faces. nothing more, nothing less.
