Games with the best plot twists
After reading a few old game reviews for precisely no discernible reason, I noticed that many reviews for story-heavy games mention a plot twist you'd see coming miles away, or would shock no one who's read/watched XYZ, or what have you. With that in mind, which games have absolutely divine plot twists that everyone should experience?

I haven't played DE yet and human nature dictates I can't not read your post. I laughed.

Metal Gear Solid 2, obviously. It's basically a playable plot twist fractal.Immersive Sims on Steam WIP

Most of the big ones are of course well known for it and so spoiled... Bioshock, FF7...

The Witcher 2, mostly. BioShock, too. Pretty much every BioShock game, including System Shock. Anchorhead is also amazing in almost every way, despite it being an interactive fiction.
...and I thought LA Noire was pretty damn good, too. *hides*

also, bioshock 2 was better despite 1 having a good twist.

Bioshock for me too. I know some felt it followed the standard 'shock' template, but it had been long enough since I'd played those that I didn't remember.. and it was very well done.
KotOR1 - It seems fashionable to bash it because it's not as good as KotOR2, but I thought the plot twist was very cleverly set up. Plus i hated the mess that was KotOR2 with a passion, so i didn't care about the plot of that at all.
I don't think these officially count as plot twists, but:
Jedi Knight - when you get plunged into the dark side path.
Mysteries of the Sith - the ending.
Sands of Time - the circular set up with the beginning.
I'm sure I've played a lot of games with plot twists, but I can't actually come up with any more than that. Memory must be going...
