Oh, a cover based shooter with jumping sections, but this time, with better visuals! How exciting and amazing!

It was content, not form.

Coming hot off of Silent Hill 3, that game had a protagonist (Heather) I could just never get attached to until maybe the last few hours. I can say with certainty that I really liked Alex as a character and the supporting cast was done well enough to help propel him even higher. Alex is much more than a one dimensional character and it shows right off the bat of the game.

... What.

No, let me rephrase that:

... What.

I remember following the game's development closely back then, after having played the impressive, but noticeably work-in-progress demo. The developers sounded extremely proud when they talked about building a game with no loading times, and reviewers did highlight that.

Ah yes, that brings back memories. I had good times with Soul Reaver.

Not so much with the sequel, however. You mentioned a "complex narrative", but Soul Reaver 2 is one of the worst offenders of keeping that narrative cutscene-only. Almost everything interesting in Soul Reaver 2 happens non-interactively.

I always stay for and read the credits of films that I liked.

A proper Silent Hill HD collection that is not worse than the PS2 versions and includes The Room, Origins and Shattered Memories.

Beyond the Nintendo franchise titles: Shattered Memories, Dead Space: Extraction, Little King's Story, TvC, Muramasa, Sin&Punishment 2, the No More Heroes and Red Steel 2 and obviously Xenoblade are a good place to start.

The money I would pay to see a game with dynamic pre-rendered backgrounds similar to the REmake realized with today's technology. Oh dear god.

@Meowayne: Are you implying the other games play well? :D

Compared to The Room, a piano with upturned knives for keys plays well. I have always been fine with controls and combat in these games, but The Room killed me.

But wait, you're not skipping The Room, are you? The game plays terribly, but is worth it for the story and lore.
