After finishing Max Payne 3 yesterday, it struck to me that while I did understand the story, followed it and all, I was not fully blown away by it. I wasn't immersed, if that is the correct word. Story and the setting was just there. Maybe it's just me.
Then I started thinking, when was the last time I truly enjoyed a story told by a video game. I really enjoyed Witcher 2, the story there is excellent. Mass Effect, albeit only parts of it, more focused on Shepard's personal relationship with his crew. Dragon Age: Origins, pretty much the same.
Perhaps I am growing old and grumpy, maybe there is something wrong with me, I dunno.
So tell me, when was the last time a story took you by the, erm, "leg" and pulled you with it, not letting go until resolved and kept you thinking for long after finishing?
