ir88ed Story line in the new Prey game has me hooked. It reminds me of how I felt playing the original bioshock. The game is tense, difficult (for me), but manages to be satisfying rather than frustrating. The plot twists have started early and are unique and fresh. The art is great, but the world does seem a tad sharp-edged and slightly boxy for a 2017 game. Story line is in the drivers seat on this one.

Zero problems playing in 4K ultra settings 60+ FPS with 2x1080ti, if that's your thing. SLI worked on day 1.

fine, I added it to the list smile.gif


on a side note: I've stumbled upon mods that turn many old games into products enjoyable on modern computers...do you guys think I should add those link for the "old glories"?

_LDC_ I've modified the title to match the content, and put a list on the first post of all the games that have been identified as having a strong focus on the story/plot. Hope it will be more useful to everyone this way.
Keep the advices coming! smile.gif

will keep this in mind, thanks smile.gif

Since you were a fan of pen and paper RPGs, you should also check out Planescape: Torment. It has to be by far the most well-written game out there.
I tried it, but although I am perfectly aware of the masterpiece we're talking about I am really unable to get into it gameplay wise. I've been able to make one time exception with Deus Ex (the first), really forcing myself into something that old (gameplay wise only, I don't care about graphic, it's a bonus when it's nice but nothing more nothing less); a thing I am unable to do with Torment.
I waiting for the new episode though, that's promising....

ME3's plot is just incoherent without Leviathan, and Arrival is too important to be separate. The others are merely extra. Many of the classic RPGs had extras like this in the form of expansions, like Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast, although the classic expansions offered far more content.
