Storytelling is a fantastic thing to have in games. If you have the gameplay to go with the story, you immerse yourself in the game, and you may or may not even notice that fact. SPOILERS FOLLOW!!! Take Heavy Rain as a terrific example: The story, along with each action that you take, determines what will happen. You are faced with choices, and you will try to make all of the right choices for you. You will be shocked at what happens, and if you fail at a certain task, such as saving your son, then you will feel as though you failed.
