I was planning on doing BioShock for this one but that's so obvious. Everyone knows BioShock has a great story. So instead I decided to go with something else entirely: Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. Shattered Memories may not exactly be "scary" but the story it tells is fantastic. Being a reimagining of the original Silent Hill, the story starts off quite similar: You are Harry Mason and you've crashed your car. When you come to you realize your daughter, Cheryl, is missing and so the search begins. But that's where the similarities between Shattered Memories and the original Silent Hill end. Shattered Memories is its own game with its own story.
Shattered Memories, as the game states when you boot it up, is playing you as much as you play it. Story elements and other such things will change depending on choices you make, things you look at, how much time you spend wandering around, etc. I'm not going to say it's perfect but it does things no game has ever done before.
What makes the story so great? Well, you'll have to play the game to find out. If you have a Wii go and buy this game right now. It's also available on the PS2 but I highly suggest the Wii version as it looks so much better and it's one of the few Wii games were the motion controls really benefit the game. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is one of the most immersive games I've ever played and part of that is due to how well the Wii controls are implemented into the game. It's not your average Silent Hill game. In fact it probably has less "Silent Hill-ish" elements than Silent Hill 4 did. But Shattered Memories ranks right up there with Silent Hill 3 as one of my favorite games in the series.
