    The BEST story game you've never heard of!

    I LOVE me a good story. It's why i like the uncharted series, The Last of Us, the Walking Dead and a few other games.

    However, just played a game that the only way i can desrcibe the writer, dialogue, script of this game as " GENIOUS ". It's without shadow of a doubt THE best story in the medium of gamiing i've ever experienced.

    It's not just me either. Here's some direct quotes from reviews on Metaritic.

    "Making excellent use of the visual novel medium to tell its story, (---------- ) is a beautifully crafted piece of interactive fiction that blends character drama, sci-fi and critique of popular culture into a compelling and memorable whole."

    "Without exaggeration, this is the greatest VN game of all time."

    "Some of the best writing and storytelling I have ever experienced in a video game, or any medium for that matter"

    "a fantastic "true" ending that may very well move you to tears."

    The game is Steins Gate



    It's not a game for everyone, as to be honest the first 20 hours were a little confusing as to where you thought the game was going, and the character you play is frankly a bit of an arse! However, if you can stick at it, and keep you mind active with the story, suddenlty about 20 hours in it gets turned on it's head and all of the previous 20 hours make sense as one big fantastic set up for the rest.

    The game is a basically a much better presentation of the Back to the Future films and about time travel, quantom physics, and the butterfly effect. It shows how you really shouldn't mess with time, world timelines etc. Even the smallest things have huge ramifications. I've learnt a lot but in a very accessable way. It really makes you think about, well everything.

    The game is basically a book. It's not really a visual novel as there aren't too many stunning things to look at. It's all txt reading but the stunning part of this game is that there are 6 endings, superb voice acting, and a dialogue that at times, made me laugh out loud, othes well up ( seriously )

    There are some really uncomfortable decisions to make that either option doesn't feel right.

    I've managed to unlock 4 of the 6 endings and have been blown away with all of them, but i've yet to get to the games " true ending "

    It truely is a MASTERPIECE. It's instantly become one of my all time favourite games. I've put nearly 50 hours into the game and still have more to discover. BRILLIANT.

    I think one of the most ingenious games iv ever played had to have been heavy rain. Every thin iu did made you feel, this is what most games like hat make you do but this one is different. You'll get sick to your stomach at some of the things you do
    i know things look bleak,
    but even the word hopeless has hope in it.
    plus if you rearange the letters it says peeslosh.
    that last part was probably unnecessary

    Yeah i've played Heavy Rain twice, and Beyond two Souls as well ( twcie ) but the Depth of choices here in Steins gate are far more reaching and complex. For example in my first play through of Steins gate i stumbled into an ending that i was quite happy with in chapter 6, but there are in fact 10 chapters overall.

    Played it through again and got 4 of the 6 endings now.

    I've also played the Walking Dead Series ( both 1 and 2 ) and again Steins Gate is far more in depth than them, but all in an accessable way.

    if your in the Uk, it's currently on sale in the game sale section for 24. It's on the PS3 .

    If you haven't got a PS3 still, it's on PC, and Ipad/Iphone, but with those devices i don't know how to purchase them as i'm purely a console gamer.

    I know this is a couple months old but this thread is new to me Is this game animated in a Japanese style? Not really my gig but you have peaked my interest in the game. I'll have to keep an eye out for it on my PS3 if it goes on sale again.
