I feel like storytelling is best in video games when it recognizes the unique characteristics of the medium and doesn't strive to be great cinema or literature. I'm especially thinking of the Metal Gear Solid series, where Hideo Kojima clearly just wants to direct movies, and so much of the games are padded out by half-hour cutscenes and endless, tedious codec conversations. Whereas the Portal games tell their story using the game mechanics, and are all the better for it.
