Lately, at least for what I've seen in the game industry, I can no longer look for innovation in the games I play. It seems that the best I can do is to look for a good execution of the product or, what I like more, for an inmersive plot or good scripts.

And that is what I want to discuss here. Which are the games that in your opinion have better scripts? I have to say that Baldur's Gate games where brilliant in that subject (and I have heard many good things about Planescape: Torment). Also, the first Gothic was both inmersive with his story thanks to interesting situations and charactersr, and quite original for his blending of RPG and adventure.

For older ones I have to say that Loom has one of the most interesting and imaginative stories I have ever seen in a computer game.

What do you think?

Loom definitely was something special. I also think that The Longest Journey had a pretty special story, however the second installment (Dreamfall) was a bit weaker in my opinion.

The Gabriel Knight games also had good writting I think.

Yeah, that's true, Gabriel Knight was algo great, though I never completed it. And The Longest Journey, I have started playing it recently, but I got tired of it. It seems I no longer have the patience for normal adventures. Anyway, it seems to have a great selection of characters and good dialogues.

All the games by Yahtzee (oldy-like freeware) that I've played have brilliant plots and scripts, except maybe the last one of the Defoe saga. After playing that saga I went for 1213 and it's also brilliant in my opinion, and I'm now set to play the rest of Yahtzee's games one after another.

I have to agree with the adventure games mentioned. Those are usually the best bet for a good script and good story. Most of the Lucas Arts and Sierra games were good. I would also recommend Beneath a Steel Sky by Revolution. It's a typical 2d adventure game that takes place in the future in a massive city. The writing is superb I thought. As for other genres, I found the Wing Commander games 1-4 had excellent writing and dialogue, especially the 4th.

I have to recommend Giants: Citizen Kabuto as well. The storyline isn't that great, but the script is hilarious. That game is truly one of a kind, the humor is very dry and witty.

Arcanum also has good dialogue if I recall.

Loom has been the best story I've met and by far.
Another story I actually enjoyed quite much was that of Nox. Maybe it wasn't too original or anything, but I think it fit the game nicely. (A great game, by the way.)
