I don't know what world you're living in, but outside of RPGs, there were VERY FEW games that even attempted a story back in the PS1 era and before.
This is PS3 era.... let's compare it to PS1...
as people had probably mentioned, apart from the numerous RPGs and action RPGs, there's the uncharted series, Force Unleashed, Dead space 1 and 2 (btw 3's out soon, so excited), NeiR, Zone of enders, even Soulcalibur has better writing

Spec Ops: The Line
Portal 1 &2
Half Life Series
Shadow of the Colossus
Final Fantasy V Advanced, VI, VII, X and T
Metal Gear Solid 3
The Unfinished Swan
God of War 1
Silent Hill 2, Shattered Memories
Prince Of Persia: Sands of Time Trilogy
Red Dead Redemption
Kingdom Hearts 1, Chain of Memories
And there are plenty of others that have slipped my mind.
DmC isn't horrible, but it has some massive flaws. Largely, whenever its tries to be cool, it completely fails, but when its actually interested in telling a story, its not that bad.

In no particular order:
The Legacy of Kain series
The Halo series (a controversial choice, but one I stand by)
The .hack//G.U series
Various games in the Final Fantasy series
The Metal Gear series
It's been mentioned consistently, but I feel it can never be mentioned enough, NieR.

Did you listen to the conversation...? - X-iiLoopii
nope not really, his face expression while he was doing that, creeped me out. - Lt_Quattro
DmC's storytelling seems much like Evangelion's to me. Forced, trying too hard, conveluted... and one of the worst main characters ever.

In SA2, it's Super Sonic and Hyper Shadow.
*goes to look at just the stack of PS3 games sitting nearby*
-Assassin's Creed (all of them, though varying levels)
-Tales of Graces f (well, all the "Tales of" games for that matter)
-Any of the FF games (yes, that includes even XIII... maybe not XIII-2)
-InFamous and InFamous 2
That's just the ones I was looking at nearby. There are plenty of others out there with better storytellling as well, like Xenogears, etc. The thing that really ruins DmC is the dialogue. A big part of storytelling is the dialogue, and DmC's is nothing but infantile garbage with the label "edgy".
Contrary to popular belief, opinions can be, and often are, wrong.

That was a response to this post:
"i mean have you PLAYED any other games? like is DmC your first game you have ever played? have you even played in the ps1 era where games were made with the story being the main focus? what about the ps2 era that did the same for the most part? what about the gamecube that had a huge selection of story driven games, the gameboy advance?"
So please, don't take it out of context.
Aion is just like all other WoW clones, I mean, the Mage in Aion has a Fireball spell and can make Portals. WoW ANYONE??? - Aion Boards
nier i'm crying because DMC sold more in name alone with bad story and gameplay and it didn't break any myth while nier had bad gameplay but best and well written story add the small novels added when getting the keys its like a novel or nier is much better as a book,
nier is even much better than the hp books, but blind Horny petter fanboys say HP books has a very good story
It is a good name of a spell let me write that in my book~ J.K.
