    Question Games with a Good Cast AND Story

    We did the other ones, so what games do you feel hits you with a great one-two punch of great story and characters?

    FFXIV Character

    Cattleya Paphia (Sargatanas)

    Honestly from me this question would probably get similar results as "Name some of your favorite games" since story/characters is a giant part of why a game would be my favorite in the first place

    Anyway, that said, some games that come to mind:

    Xenogears, Ar Tonelico games, Ar nosurge, Trails games, Yakuza games, Xenoblade 2, Final Fantasy IX/7R/XIV, Shadow Hearts: Covenant, Suikoden V, Lost Odyssey, Wild Arms 5

    I can see how this works. Instead of favorite games I would list games I want to like but can't. Generally because of gameplay reasons. Like Trails in the Sky. Or the first Uncharted game. Likable characters and fascinating story with questionable gameplay. And if anyone is unfamiliar, the first Uncharted game hadn't quite gotten it as far as gunplay was concerned, especially when considering actual hordes of enemies

    Lost Odyssey, possibly Heavenly Sword, and most Fire Emblem games since I hate just having battles and cut scenes without down time

    Well, Suikoden II (and really most of the series) and Witcher 3 seem like obvious answers.
