    Totally for real. Open-endedness =/= story-driven. Actually open-endedness often = lack of a strong core plot.

    The only recent games I can think of that had a really strong story are Heavy Rain and Alan Wake.

    I wont turn this into a lost thread but there's way more than that and its actually pretty awful because games are just becoming playable movies at this point.

    There is nothing spectacular about Mass Effect's story. Mass Effect 2 was mostly a generic TPS.

    There are so many plots revolving around a "periodic cleansing" of some form of sentient life. I don't take it you've played Megaman Legends?
