Skyrim with first person locked, no fast travel, survival mods out the ass, coldfrost, and the camera was locked to the characters head which aided with immersion too. realistic bows and arrows and shit

put like 50 hours into the game before starting even the first main quest mission

Is it weird to be immersed in a JPRG? Because Tales of Vesperia was a pretty good one for me. Good character interaction and good plot at least until the 2/3 mark just kept me going.

As justified as people are to sling shit at that game, I have never played anything that's been able to pull me into its world like FC2. I don't know what it is, it's just a perfect blend of immersive FPS gameplay. Even the blatant repetition of it was something I could look over because ambushing a convoy in the savannah was exhilarating as fuck each time. Once VR becomes fleshed out, that's gonna be one of the first games I try with it.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

never played the genre, game or series before, bought it on winter sale, I was sad it eventually ended.

I liked how I was able to build up a 'main character' of sorts along with a squad, especially when the soldier I picked to be the volunteer was with my squad since mission 1

Can't wait for XCOM 2 now

If you consider having to remember to save every ten minutes in preparation for that inevitable crash to desktop or gamebryo engine fuck up that forces you to reload immersive, I guess.

The Long Dark. Sandbox survival game, which they're gonna be rolling out a story campaign for. Game is atmospheric and spooky af at first until you git gud, then it becomes a chore and not fucking up-simulator. Game Looks, sounds and plays pretty great. They have updated stuff a lot since it first released.

It's great if you're not a whiny faggot.
Story mode isn't out yet, but honestly? The sandbox is enough.

>Stuck in Canadian wilderness
>Cold kills you
>Dehydration kills you
>Starvation kills you
>Fatigue severely weakens you
>Wolves kill you
>Bears kill you
>Walking off a cliff kills you

Best survival game yet, it's interaction between the various necessities forces you to make tough decisions.
>Do I go out in the blizzard to get food, or risk starving?
>Do I risk going near those wolves to explore that outpost?
>Do I waste a bullet to kill this deer for food, or do I scavenge more? Will there be more food, or is this the last chance?
>Do I take shelter in that car, or do I keep running like fucking hell?
>Do I boil water before I go to sleep, or do I chop up that table to make firewood?
>Do I take shelter from the wind under that cliff and wait this weather out, or do I trudge to my current encampment?

It is hands down one of, if not the, most well thought out survival game out there.

>>323756489
Not sure, but they just released a pretty big update and a new trailer not too long ago.

That being said, they've got some serious fucking experience backing this game, so it's probably gonna be sooner then later at this point. Everything engine side is pretty much done.

It's gonna sound weird but I installed the Long War mod for XCOM and started playing it again about 2 weeks ago. I don't think I've ever felt so awful about losing people like I do in that game. I don't know if that's necessarily immersion but I definitely feel the weight of my actions playing and having to leave behind people or getting critted and losing my best dude cause of RNG or whatever. I love it though, really makes you have to take advantage of the games mechanics to succeed.

Danmaku Unlimited 2. Or basically any hard shmup.

They're some of the few games that actually fully immerse me in a game in the sense that I am left unable to think of anything outside of the game while I'm playing them.

Because if I do think outside of the game, then I lose focus. And losing focus is very bad for my ability to dodge all those hundreds of little dots coming my way.
