arr0whead: The recent ones are The Cat Lady and The Walking Dead. Also, ME2 (then ME3 made me lose interest in the whole series because of too many immersion-breaking moments).

RuheBlut: I was eyeing The Cat Lady but haven't decided to get it yet what made it worth it? Also I loved ME1-3 the only immersion breaker for ME3 to me was the last DLC they came out with and despite it breaking immersion it was humorous and a fun little final dlc.
For The Cat Lady, the characters and the atmosphere were done well, and it had a nice soundtrack.

As for ME3, there were a lot of immersion breaking moments but the ones that stood out for me were whenever Kai Leng appeared, everyone went full retard, and Shepard going all emo on a random kid who appeared for less than 5 minutes. Yep, I heard that people loved the fanservice DLC. I didn't even bother to youtube it.
Hmm. Morrowind has probably done this the most, and is the only game I've ever felt homesick for when I was on holiday and unable to play. Not feeling homesick for my rl home, or simply wanting to play it, but feeling homesick for the locations in the game. It really drew me in, in a way which the later TES games (which I actually played before Morrowind, so it's not a case of nostalgia) failed to do.

The 'most recent' game which has immersed me in its story, oddly enough, is Eador. Not a game you'd think of from the point of view of a story, but that's because the story arises from your actions rather than being told to you as you play. A very good thing, in a computer game.

I may also end up adding Baldur's Gate to my list, but as I'm still playing it (game is open as I type) I can't say for sure.

The other game which has kept me thinking and worrying about it even now, over a year after I finished playing, was Bastion. I think I made the wrong decision at the end...

The Citadel DLC should have been saved as an epilogue, it would have fit better. Destroy ending with the "hidden" scene, followed by the citadel, that would have worked better.

karacho: For me it was Last of Us for PS3.

Before that it was the Mass Effect Trilogy
Same last two that I played. The characters in the Last of Us pulled me in like few games have.

Show me a game with well written, deep characters and it'll be a game I can play start to finish.

RuheBlut: I really wish they'd re release Star Trek EF voyager 1 and 2 as digital downloads I'd be so friggin happy i loved the first and really want to play the 2nd.
I remember the arguments i had with game r.e. the expansion disc for STV:EF 1! Nightmare!
i don't think i had any problem with EF2! have the discs upstairs need to dig them out, EF1 has the most balanced game play ever! The second i wasn't such as huge fan off (mainly due to the departure from Voyager) but i dont remember it begin as good (but you cant beat perfection!), but as i said i do need to replay them, it has been a long time!
There on my insta buy list when GoG get them!

I fully agree with that, though it was worth a look at best.

Hmmm... Wow great question... Well I guess the last time I was immersed in a game would be when I last played Red Dead Redemption...

but in the story? I'd say... the PS3 Exclusive Demon's Souls. Yeah, the way that all the characters sounded dreadful, and scared... and almost tired... along with the great music and almost apocalyptic surroundings with the hardcore challenge... Yeah I was very much immersed in that story...

Other than that though... Probably Assassin's Creed III... yeah I'd say I almost more so in AC3 due to I love American History and I was absorbed in it.
Beyond: Two Souls, dear god that game has a story that totally sucked me in...

Finished it in two sessions, and I'll start a new game soon planning to do different choices this time. If you own a PS3, get this game, it's pure gold.
