Plot-driven Narrative - an IFDB Poll

by Jerako
RSS Feed

I'm looking for a list of games to try where the narrative is the focus of the game. Where the author is really trying to tell a story over making a puzzlefest (though puzzles aren't necessarily unwelcome, especially if they drive they plot). For example, Infocom's Zork holds zero interest for me, while A Mind Forever Voyaging most certainly does.
