Best story-driven PC Games? - Page 11

post #101 of 154
This is an awesome thread, what would be like the top 5 recommendations for a ps2 emulator.
I know d3 will wear off on me soon, and I will probably play tera bit less.

I am guessing shadow of the colossus is at the top?

Yup, definitely GoW (1 and/or 2, that's up to you), Ratchet & Clank 3, Burnout 3: Takedown too. You may need to play in software mode to get rid of the graphics glitches though thumb.gif

I would also recommend Counter-strike: Global Offensive. There are two storylines: the terrorists vs the counter terrorists. The story is massive on scale--your actions determine the outcome of the global society. I won't spoil it, but it has one of the best stories I've ever experienced in a video game.

Planescape - Torment

Deus Ex (the original)

The Witcher

Homeworld

Baldur's Gate deserves honorary mention. It's a bit more standard/cliche in plot, but it's extremely well thought out and executed.

Also, the original Max Payne.
