Hmm, I don't even consider all of those to be masterpieces. In the last ten years, the only games I'd call "masterpiece in the category of story driven" are Dragon Age: Origins, Mass Effect (all three), Silent Hill 3... that might be it, and I play a lot of games. Metal Gear Solid games are somewhat close, but I don't know if I'd call the masterpieces. Aside from the story, they all could use serious gameplay improvements, and their storytelling just isn't up there with Mass Effect or Dragon Age... or even The Witcher games.

I'm very selective in where I use the term "masterpiece". One of the most impressive story driven games ever is Silent Hill 2. I think there was a PC version but it's impossible to get now, it's over 10 years old.
