5. Beyond: Two Souls

Developer: Quantic Dream
Release date: October 9, 2013
Platforms: PS3

Before releasing this game, the gaming community was just jubilant in anticipation of the next masterpiece from Quantic Dream. Beyond: Two Souls had a good chance of becoming another reason to buy the PlayStation 3: famous Hollywood actors Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page, stunning graphics comparable to next-gen platforms, and David Cage himself at the head of development. It would seem that the game is doomed to success, but, unfortunately, this did not happen. Many were waiting for a genuinely ingenious and non-linear plot that would allow them to think over the perfect actions for hours or even days.

But the storyline in the game cannot boast of non-linearity, although there are moments where something depends on the player in some places. Be that as it may, the story that unfolds around a girl named Jodie Holmes is mesmerizing despite all its linearity. It will not be ashamed to shed a tear in some places because some situations are choreographed to shine. Therefore, Beyond: Two Souls, although it did not meet many players' expectations, still deserves a spot on the best games in the interactive cinema genre.

4. The Wolf Among Us

Developer: Telltale Games
Release date: October 11, 2013
Platforms: PC, PS3, XBox 360, PS4, XBox One, iOS, PS Vita, Mac

In fourth place is a project from Telltale Games called Wolf Among Us. The game's plot is based on the Fables comic series. These comics will seem unfamiliar to many but take my word for it; they are worthy of a game based. The events in New York show us fairy-tale characters who had to flee to our world to save their lives. The player will play for the Wolf, yes, the same Wolf from the fairy tales "Three Little Pigs" and "Little Red Riding Hood."

The Wolf has ceased to be evil, and now he is a detective, whose goal is not to let the legends (fairy-tale characters) destroy each other. As you progress through, you will more than once come across rather tricky decisions on which the story's further denouement depends. An unusual and non-linear storyline combined with interesting in-game dialogues will not let you get bored even for a moment. How the story ends will also rely only on you, and therefore deserved fourth place.

3. The Walking Dead

Developer: Telltale Games
Release date: April 24, 2012
Platforms: PC, Mac, PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, iOS, Android, Ouya, PS Vita

Another game from Telltale Games called The Walking Dead. As the name suggests, the game is based on the comics by Robert Kirkman "The Walking Dead," the very ones that were later filmed for the television series. Unlike the series, the game will give you many more emotions, allowing you to feel the whole atmosphere of the zombie apocalypse. Of course, there are no ultra-modern graphics, no revolutionary innovations, but instead, there is a fantastic plot, from which your hands will get goosebumps more than once.

The protagonist of Walking Dead: Season 1 is a black guy named Lee who had an accident on his way to prison. He managed to survive, which cannot be said about the policeman. Lee realizes that the world has begun to fall apart and that he cannot be left alone. After the accident, he stumbles upon a little girl Clementine, whom he later vows to protect at the cost of his life. Telling the further course of events will be a crime. It will be much more interesting to know her yourself.

2. Fahrenheit

Developer: Quantic Dream
Release date: June 13, 2006 (original) | January 29, 2015 (HD Remake)
Platforms: PC, PS2, Xbox, iOS, Mac, Linux

Released in 2005, the game from the then little-known Quantic Dream immediately gained high popularity. Many publications gave the Fahrenheit project first place, calling it the best game of the year. Naturally, time does not stand still, and therefore very few people remember the game now. But not so long ago, a re-release was released - Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, which obliges you to try this masterpiece by your teeth. The game's plot is quite exciting and has three different endings, depending on your decisions.

It is worth noting that the game has some mysticism, which makes the story even more exciting. You will play at once for several different characters whose actions are closely related to each other. That is, every step you take by one hero will affect the behavior of another, which will make you think more than once before making a decision. In general, Fahrenheit is an excellent game with a non-childish plot, and it is a pleasure to participate in its development.

1. Heavy Rain

Developer: Quantic Dream
Release date: February 24, 2010
Platforms: PS3

And here, in fact, is the winner of our TOP, a game from the same Quantic Dream called Heavy Rain. This project is the company's main brainchild and has been holding a game with one of the most exciting and non-linear plots for five years. Heavy Rain is exactly what people buy a console for. It is unlikely that you will be able to talk about this game because you just need to play it. A delightful storyline that includes many options for endings, excellent acting (yes, the drama), as well as unrivaled music, which, according to David Cage, is half of the game's success.

You have to play as several characters at once, whose stories are different and at the same time closely intertwined. As you progress, the main task is to find out the identity of the maniac nicknamed "Origami Master," in whose hands there are many victims. You will have to do everything to prevent the killing of children and put an end to all the horror that is happening, but who said you could do it? There are as many as seventeen endings in the game, and not all of them are happy, and therefore there will be plenty of places to sweat.

The essence of the game perfectly reflects its main slogan - "What will you do for the sake of someone dear to you?"
