Best game story you played this generation

I love games that are able to tell a great story, but I'm wondering what you guys think are the best stories of this console generation. I want to get a new game of two, and hopefully you guys say one that I haven't played before.

Bioshock Infinite
Tomb Raider
Etrian Odyssey(seriously)

That's stuff just off the top of the head, there's probably something else I haven't thought of.
Polite conversation should never include Politics, Religion or what constitutes an RPG.
Playing a game for it's story is like watching porn for it's story.

Bioshock (Infinite).
All attempts at duplicating it have ended in disaster: four test subjects were horribly broken and twisted when they engaged our Morph Ball prototypes.

999 and VLR.
Both were overly complex at times (like morphogenic fields) but overall really good.
I still don't believe most people on gamefaqs are even gamers. Just assuming they are embodiments of hate and stupidity taking digital form.

I think this about sums it up

Probably Nier. Others I've played that I though had good stories were Xenoblade, Valkyria Chronicles, MGS4, and Radiant Historia. Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky had a pretty decent story too but I didn't like the game that much.
