I think crossing out HL2 is a little bit harsh though, while it did not have the most engrossing story in world it was still good for a FPS.
I'd go further and that call it freaking blasphemy. But I've had this argument with BG before
He seems to lack respect for the awesomeness that is the lore and story of HL2 (+ episodes) which are, IMHO, 2nd to none as FPS games goes. There's more 'epic' games (like ME series) but in terms of games that actually made me CARE about the characters and story ... nope.
Hell, I had tears welling up in my eyes at the end of Ep. 2 ... nothing like that has EVER happened to me playing any other game.
Alan Wake is another pretty damn good 'story', so that's one we do agree on.
I actually really like the story of Fallout 3 as well, as long as you 'count' the expansion packs as they pretty much 'complete' the story.
