Far Cry 3 and 5
Max Payne 2
Spec Ops: The Line (has a shocking and impressive ending and points at what wars really are, definitely recommended)
Outlast and its dlc "Whistleblower"
I disagree, in some aspect they get worse and in other they get better. Imo 2nd have worse story than 1st and 3rd but the best gameplay, 1st have the worst gameplay but the best story and the third is somewhere in the middle and the ending patch makes it not as bad as it was at the release.
