Grim Fandango is probably the closest to my heart.
Undertale I think is also a masterpiece, same goes for Alien: Isolation.
The Monkey Island games are also very special to me, as is Psychonauts!
Half-Life was pretty life changing for me too when it came out. Silent Hill 2 as well.
I also love the feeling of satisfaction when you complete Return of the Obra Dinn.
I thought Red Dead Redemption was stunning
Phoenix Wright is also a series of expertly told stories.
I'm trying to think of other games that I just keep coming back to; I know there are more...
For me I love games as a storytelling medium. Anything that plays with narrative really appeals to me.
Oh and I'm currently finishing of the Mother series for the first time! I'd played Earthbound years ago but it's my first time playing the entire trilogy. They're a real gem in terms of retro games :D
