No The Last Of us? It would be on my list. And yes Ian you beat all of us.

GTA IV's story was pretty good, and it was well written, but a "storytelling landmark"? No, I don't really think so. It was essentially just a good retelling of countless stories and movies.

For this same reason, I don't think The Last of Us would deserve to be on the list. It's an amazing game with an amazingly well written story, and great characters. But similar to GTA IV, it's telling a very similar story that we've seen/read in various movies and novels. The game is almost entirely a retelling of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

I don't mind at all if you guys disagree, that's cool, but could you guys explain *why* you disagree?

Mass effect might have been a good one, if only the 3rd game wasn't hyped up to be something it's not. I'd rather not see anymore save importing games from Bioware.

Mass Effect 3 was amazing except for the final 15 minutes. Sure, they fucked up the ending pretty bad, but the game itself was awesome.
