^I don't know what you said but it made me really
I'm gonna put in an unusual one here and say Sonic Adventure
2. Yes, I know, I'm probably going to get jumped on for the whole cliche'd "evil twin" plot, but seriously, that had everything; a compelling storyline that took an overdone plot piece and took it in a new direction, in that the evil knockoff was actually sympathetic
; call him emo or not, Shadow was a great
character in my book, at least in that game... and a gameplay style which is fast moving and addictive (I can't number the times I've played through City Escape) but at the same time is good at keeping in with the narrative, and multiple paths which actually gelled well with the final story. (Even though... yeah. I'm not entirely clear which story was the one that was played out; I think it was the Dark Story as Eggman is in the control room; Tails decks him in the Hero story. I suppose Sonic could've destroyed the cannon and then Eggman tried to fire it later... but thats a stretch; think the bad guys were winning up to that point.) Cheesy voice acting aside, it was a great game storywise; hell, it even gave Amy
, a character who normally makes me want to rip my ears out, a genuinely moving role as a peacemaker; Amy is the one who persuades Shadow to fight for Earths survival at the end. (She does seem to be something of a natural diplomat throughout the games.) And the ending scene was genuinely moving.
