LoZ Wind Waker for me, story was fantastic and ending was quite emotional.

Zelda - Skyward Sword

Absolutely beautifully made game, and one of several Zelda games I'd like to put on this thread.

Halo 3

Again, I could have most Halo games on this list.

It has to be bioshock for me. I literally sat there open mouthed for the last few hours.

Nothing 'childish' about it. You'd have to be pretty pretentious to demerit art based off its apparent target age range, it's missing the point. Plenty of stories originally written for children have universally applicable themes and core values. And besides, it was going for an old-school fantasy style like most of the original FF franchise, it was bound to hold a bit of a fairy-tale tone to it.
Also, Vivi and the whole way he works is awesome :P
Glad you agree with me
I loved the dystopian post-apocalyptic world of FF6, the alternate reality feel of FF7 and the sci-fi environment of FF8. I wasn't a huge fan of fantasy at the time of FF9's release so that and the talking animals did put me off a bit. I was wrong though; having played it, FF9 had such a diverse range of environments and the talking animals were pretty irrelevant to the story. If anything, they added to the diversity and helped to make the game so amazing.

The story was one of the most memorable in any game that I have played. The way that it explored the significance and meaning behind life and death was just damn beautiful, second in scope only to Xenosaga perhaps.

Yeah. I loved that game.

Much love for Final Fantasy the animals worked. Burmecia as a rat city was genius!
Never actually tried Xenosaga, I hear it's supposed to be amazing?

Sorry for the late reply.

I liked the perpetual rain also. Burmecia was such a well characterised town.

No, Xenosaga is kinda horrible. I meant Xenogears, lol. It's epic in the true sense of the word, back when Squaresoft was pumping out nothing but brilliance. It's pretty traditional in that it's a fantasy game with a sci-fi twist but it's just so deep, without pretence also. It draws inspiration from Neitzche, Jung etc and delves deeply into the reasons behind religious conflict as well as obviously psychology. It's also a labour of love for Squaresoft and didn't make a massive turnover due to it's cerebral storyline but it's definitely worth a look if you're into that kinda stuff, which I'm assuming you are.

Sounds pretty cool, I think a friend has that? I might give it a look sometime, thanks for letting me know

Oh yes, I completely agree. Wind Waker is probably one of my favourite Zelda's actually and the end sequence helped to cement that for me.

Skyrim.

Oh wait, it never ends!

Halo: CE was awesome, so that gets my vote.

Most defiantly my favourites I think I did actually leak a tear when I played them in story order! Metal Gear Solid series in general is beautiful and perfect!

Red Dead Redemption, Bio Shock 1+2, Uncharted 3 I think that's it!

Agreed! The MGS series is probably my favourite gaming series. Your other choices aren't too shabby either

I'd have to say Mass Effect 3. I mean what better way is there to end such an amazing story then by introducing an irrelevant character within the last few minutes and choosing the colour of explosions from the Crucible :P

Honestly, I can't make my mind up on a single ending. So here's a list of the few best ones from which I can recall:-

Assassins Creed Revelations - Really, all AC games have crazy endings in one way or another and that's a good thing considering the nature of the story. However, ACR was the first to deliver a conclusion that actually felt like an end. Altair and Ezio were given the most justice in that ending imo

Mass Effect 2 - Lets forget about the 3rd game. This really was the highlight of the story. Throughout the game, the emphasis on the final suicide mission is immense. You go in really with no idea what will happen and can end up with wildly varied results depending on how you played the game.

Red Dead Redemption - This one is a no-brainer, It's also improved by the addition of the God figure character in the "I Know You" mission

MGS4 - This one is also a no-brainer, however I did find it the slight bit underwhelming when I found out Zero founded the Patriots
