This thread became larger than I expected, so I am editing the first post to share all the good advices that have been kindly contributed so far.
I will try to divide them into two categories, based on the numbers of matching advices: the "universally acknowledged" and the "special mention"
The list is available for everyone to use, and new contributions are always welcome!

Hi all,

it has been quite a while since I last completed a game (it was the first Half Life) then I quitted gaming almost completely 'cause I focused my interest elsewhere. Now that many things are settled and I can manage my time better, I would like to start playing games again but I need OC.net's citizens help because I am out of the scene since looong time and know nearly nothing about "modern" titles, genres ecc, and also have a specific request that needs to be fulfilled for the games to be taken into consideration: I want to play a memorable story.
Story is what matters for me the most in a game, I don't care about the graphic or any fancy feature, I just want something that will remain within me forever like a good book, movie ecc

For all the kind people who will choose to reply, please state only two titles and explain why you choosed them (this will help me narrow the results) smile.gif
