The game(s) that changed your mind about Twine - an IFDB Poll

I've seen many people discuss their feelings for Twine. Many of them say that they didn't think it was a 'real' platform at first, but then certain games changed them (see, for instance, the commentary in "IF is Dead. Long Live IF")

For those who were skeptical about Twine but later came to accept it, what games influenced you the most? I'm starting out by voting for three games that affected me
