He asked for games. Not movies where you have to press a button every 5 minutes.

There are very few video games with great or interesting stories IMO.

You might want to try Secret of Evermore for SNES, kind of quirky storyline and interesting world that I remember really liking.

I loved the MGS series, Twin Snakes for GC and MGS2 and 3 for PS2 would make for a good winter break trilogy IMO.

I'd recommend Shenmue 1 & 2 as well if you could easily get your hands on a Dreamcast and Xbox.

MGS 3 does have a great storyline and is overall one of the best games I've played. If you don't mind going old school, and if you can find a copy, Suikoden 2 had one of the best storylines I've seen in a game. It was very compelling and didn't really lose steam as they tend to. Suikoden 3 also had a great and uniquely told story in it. Those are the only two I've played so far but I think the Suikoden series is pretty grossly underrated. Anyway, both are worth looking into if you like the FF series.

Also, I didn't see this mentioned but Grim Fandango is hands down a must-play if you are looking for story. The graphics are quite outdated but I think it is still playable. Adventure might not be your thing, but it is seriously worth considering (again it is rather old so tracking down a copy might be difficult).

Godfather Blackhand is interesting. obviously it follows the plot of The Godfather, but fills in the behind the scenes with your character.

edit: example, you are sitting in the restaurant when Michael Corleone assassinates Solazzo and the cop and help him escape.
