"Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception"

Publisher: Sony
Systems: PS3

Plotlines are too often an afterthought in videogames, but the "Uncharted" series is the exception to the rule. Not only is the game play well paced and action packed, but there's also a solid story and character development. It's one of the few games where you'll actually care what happens during cut scenes, rather than viewing these pauses in the game as an interruption.
