    1. Planescape: Torment
    2. Baldur's Gate Trilogy (or rather the second game modded to play all the Baldur's Gate games in one game)
    3. Deus Ex
    4. Thief: The Metal Age (Preferred it over Thief: The Dark Project due to the former being more a burglary simulator)
    5) The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

    I'm a sucker for good RPGs that have a touch of good writing.

    EDIT: Forgot to add, this list is not in any particular order.

    1.Tie between Deus Ex and Human Revolution
    2.Doom 2016
    3.Contra 3: The Alien Wars
    4.The Witcher: Enhanced Edition
    5.Fallout 4S.T.A.L.K.E.R, the whole Cheeki-Breeki trilogy

    Good story is not enough for a good game. Likewise, the good gameplay is not enough without proper story worth playing.

    The top five games I've enjoyed of all time?

    1. Streetfighter, been playing since SF2, but I'll list Alpha 3 as my favorite of the bunch.

    2. Resident Evil, the whole series, but probably RE2 on PS was the one that had the most impact.

    3. Baulders Gate, I think the first is the best of the series.

    4. Eye of the Beholder, Temple of Darkmoon being my favorite in there.

    5. EzPz Rpg. Ok, so it's a pay2win phone game that's basically a spreadsheet with a lot of antagonistic texting, but I just played it everyday for 16 months and it was quite intense, competivitly.

    I left out fallout like you asked And elder scrolls too just because.... Uh they're pretty similar in my mind these days ;)

    I like Baldur's gate as well but there's some fourth-wall breaking that I've encountered which does not make me a happy camper

    Penumbra really doesn't get as much acclaim as it deserves. I hope they make more games like this. I liked those games better than Amnesia.

    SOMA plays a little more like Penumbra which is great.

    :salute: A lot of great classics up there. I've heard a lot of good things about I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream though I have not read the original short story.

    Bondari reloads? I found the fourth-wall breaks to be more tongue-in cheek rather than annoying though it does get a little vexing on new playthroughs.

    Well I'm a few chapters into the first game and it's already one of my favorites, but it's just really annoying because for example I clicked on a peasant guy in a tavern and he said something like "Hey! Stop clicking on me!" and BAM immersion broken. I've seen MUCH worse though. I refunded 2 games just a few days ago, both for the same reason, abundant fourth wall jokes. I mean, if your game has so many fourth wall breaks that within the first TWO HOURS of the game I already hate it, uh, anyways... my point is I really hate fourth wall break, it's a cheap way at comedy mainly. Sorry if I went on a rant about it, but now I've learned my lesson and I thoroughly investigate every fourth wall break present in a game before I buy it.

    Fair enough. In my opinion, there are some fourth wall breaks have been well implemented at times (for instance, the game goes out of its way to explore the implications of no fourth wall in the medium) though it's the exception rather than the norm, resulting in the cheap way at comedy you mentioned. What were those two games you mentioned refunding?
