Good story driven games?

Finally, I've finished playing all the games that I didn't finish on iOS, and was wondering if there were some neat story driven games I haven't played yet. Or rather adventure.

Retro's got a pretty solid list there... Adding:

Zombies. (by bignic) - a very satire take on the business world
Freedom Fall - very powerful non-stop writings on the wall tell a deep story, which is reflected on the layout of the maps, the blood stains, the wall marks, etc. Kinda like Thomas was Alone's dialogues, but in this one, they are presented as writings on the wall.
The Walking Dead - the first one. The second one's pretty weak compared to the first
The Wolf Among Us - another telltale masterpiece. tis all about the story.
Infinity Blade series - takes the whole trilogy and 2 books to make a great story though. having just one of them isnt going to be good story-wise.

Didnt mention the gamebooks coz those are pretty obvious.
