best stories. Alpha Protocol was incredible and was everything the "Choices matter!" developers promise in their games and fail at delivering.

I just want to know how we can go from something like ME! - with Virgil, and Illos, and those fantastics scenes - to something like "Press a button to select an Ending."
If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.

Obsidian has always outclassed all the other WRPG developers when it comes to story. Even KOTORII had a better story than KOTORI, it just ended up a horrible convoluted mess because LucasArts rushed them to complete it (just like Bethesda did with FO:NV).

Indeed, it's a good example of how the writing in their games is great- even if the games themselves tend to not be. ;)

Just to be a pain, technically in all games you choose an ending by pressing a button

KOTOR2 would have been great if they didn't cut out massive parts of the story to release on time.

Alpha Protocol may have had a meh story, but at least well designed, but it was a wasted potential of a game.

Bioware's story writing has always been bad, it's their characterization they did well
