Games with compelling stories?

I'm looking for games with stories that actually make you continue to play the game. Great games that don't really get repetitive, always something new, and will make you want to finish it. We all know iphone games cause us to have a sense of ADD when it comes to playing them but I'm looking for games that make me want to finish them. I've only finished like 5 games if I can remember right. Phoenix Wright, Space Miner, and Chaos Rings (to an extent lmao) come to mind. Also I like many types of games but rpgs especially, although I don't like zenonia because of the chores etc. Any ideas?

gg no re.

./end

darn it didnt finish reading post sorry.

hmmm lets see, id say across age, best action rpg imo.
It's the only one that doesnt involve grinding and generic quests.
Everything is new and the story is the best and most original.

Agreed, Across Age's story is great, but I can't stand the 8 bit music, lol

Will definitely have to look more into across age, and I've never heard of infinity project but I have to look at that now too.

Well since the game list is limiting, not only compelling stories, but games that just make you want to continue as well.
