Lost Planet 3 is a third person shooter about fighting monsters on a planet covered in ice. It also has mech combat, amazing writing, and fantastic boss battles.
Pro Incredible storytelling
Games aren't really known for having great writing or performances, but Jim Peyton's story is awesome. He's a guy who's left his family on a work contract for years, hoping to make a better life for them. The game's great dialogue and eclectic cast of characters is wonderful. Even a generic NPC can spout some clever and funny lines from time to time.
