This poll is now closed.
Any games that made you feel apart of the environment so much that you forgot you were playing a video game? Or ones that simply sucked you into the setting to such a degree you would react in unexpected ways.

Why did you put two games in one spot?

Probably Zelda: The Wind Waker or Majora's Mask for me. Saints Row 2 comes close. Red Dead Redemption too though the UI kinda breaks it. Deadly Premonition does a good job at it with sleep, hunger, gas, etc.

GTA5 takes the cake, hands up. Immersion is the one thing it did right.
Playing: Watch Dogs, MGS5:Ground Zeroes, Modern Warfare 2, NBA Live 09
Waiting For: MGS5:Phantom Pain, No Mans Sky, Persona 5, Cyberpunk 2077

Good topic, T.C.
Other - for me, by far the two games with the most immersive atmosphere were:
Vagrant Story
Persona 4
"There is no one else! I am the only one here!"
- Frederic Chopin, Eternal Sonata

It was the first thing I thought when I saw the topic title. I wish I could relive those first few minutes in Rapture.

Probably Metroid Prime, Arkham Asylum, or Shadow of the Colossus.
I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

I should've put that's on the ps3 lawl.

Outside the ps3 I think Silent Hill 2 and Fatal Frame 2 have created the overall most immersive atmosphere. But still, flower is oddly good at this as well.

I think its pretty tough creating atmosphere. It requires subtly that really defies the "fun" nature approach of most games. Hence why you generally only find it in games with horror elements if you ask me.

Red Dead Redemption. Nothing didn't ever beat the immersion it gave to me.
