    In my opinion, I would have to say the Mass Effect series.

    I'm actually playing Persona 4 : The Golden. This is my first Shin Megami Tensei game, and seriously, the scenario is really huge. I mean, i usually can't play more than 20/30 hours on an single game, excepting some games like Animal Crossing or Borderlands 2. But this one... I'm at 45 hours and still not bored, it's really magic, and there's ALWAYS something else than that we are expecting.

    All the SMT games I've played (not very many, I only just recently got into it) have had fantastic stories, and I'm a big fan of the MGS story (weird **** and all, I just love it).
    I'm yet to get my hands on The Last of Us and Bioshock: Infinite, but I really want them.

    .. I don't even want to get into arguing over a lot of that list, but holy God, there is some ridiculous stuff at the top of the list.

    How. How.

    Anyway, some of my favorites include:

    Metal Gear Solid - all of them, each one is awesome in its own way. 1's story was just all around great, 2's was a colossal mind twist and excellently done with all the symbolism and 3 has some emotional moments and other than that is pretty much just great also.

    9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors - Jesus so many twists in that one. And it managed to stay fairly understandable, too. At least up until the end when it started getting a little bonkers.

    Deus Ex - obligatory choice. Some of the toughest choices I've ever faced in a game, and a fairly complex but not crazy plot.

    I'm sure there's some that I'm forgetting as well.
    My biggest gripe was the fact that the story went completely off the rails about halfway through, and onto a completely different track. BioShock raised some interesting moral questions (of which the Little Sister choices were not so much), but the first half of BioShock Infinite felt a little more like white guilt: the game. It looked like they were going to do something really interesting with it but then the game changed directions completely into the sci-fi dimension-jumping fun that comprised the second half.

    Actually. Planescape: Torment has a great storyline. I would've put it higher on the list. You just have to be familiar with the Planescape Campaign Setting. If you're not, you'll probably hate it. I'd probably say this much. If you know who the Lady of Pain is and what she does, then you're probably alright to play the game.

    Anyway, for me it's every game in the Xeno franchise. Xenogears, Xenosaga, and Xenoblade all have amazing storylines. Monolith never disappoints with the plots in these games.

    The Earthbound games, particularly Mother 3, had some pretty fun and neat stories in them, I thought. Somehow merges a whole bunch of wacky stuff into the plot so well, and has some rather moving moments as well. Full of a whole range of characters too. One particularly nice effect was playing as a character for a while, which as in a bunch of RPGs is voiceless - then when the next part of the story comes around and you change characters, you might see the previous one talk to your new character. Minor, but neat in showing another side.

    Does it have to be recent games? If not, I can come up with a few older ones I've played. Haven't bought any recent games. My latest is the new Tomb Raider.
    1: Kingdom Hearts series
    2: Dragon Quest 8
    3: Shadow of the Colossus

    Telltale's "The Walking Dead" is easily a favorite of mine. Those characters stick with you long after the game is over and it's one that has so many possibilities and outcomes, it's just an amazing play.

    Kingdom Hearts easily.
