I really like video games that have a good storyline behind them. What are some titles that have a good narrative and/or backstory? Examples of games I've like in the past are inside.

I've enjoyed the following games because the story lines were so engrossing, and that made me want to help the character reach the goal! It was a great motivator to finish the game and feel accomplished at the end. Can you recommend others that are like them?
-Legend of Zelda
-Katamari Damacy (story is zany, but I also liked the aesthetics, especially the music and scenery)
*bonus:Parappa the Rapper (gameplay is not that great, but story is cool and again with the zany)
The visual don't necessarily have to reflect the cartoonish looks mentioned above. At the time, I really thought Abe's Oddyssey was beautiful, so complex graphics are good as well.
