    Minecraft. Coded in java, easy to work with. Very well written.

    OK I have a few. First I'd have to go with Shenmue as a good piece of video game story telling.
    It's terribly written! It hasn't dated well at all.

    The definition of viewing games fondly through rose-tinted glasses.

    Well you missed the point there and edited out my reasoning in your quote...

    I'm talking about games where we're free to explore, go at our own pace and take our time to enjoy the story. Make it our own. Not just play through a fixed script.

    Not really best written then, is it?

    Or is it? Is a well written game also one that leaves appropriate space for your own stories? Then surely Prototype wins, because I elbow dropped a helicopter, and that's the best story there is.

    Well it depends if the story grips you. There's no wrong answer in this. I also gave a number of purely scripted experiences I enjoyed too. Shenmue is still scripted but it allows you the freedom to do things you wouldn't be able to do in any other media - such as take a few days off to do your own thing within the story. This is what made it so great for me. Granted, it might not translate well to a film script, but I didn't think that was the point.

    I feel like the answer to this question is - none of the above.

    Of course, I haven't played every single game ever made, so I don't feel qualified to answer.

    That wasn't the point.

    Silent Hill 2 sticks in my mind as well although I haven't played it in a while.

    Vagrant Story as well. Shame that never had voice acting.
