Games where the interaction is really cool and clever - an IFDB Poll

I'm really interested in games which put a new spin on the mechanics. I'm thinking of a specific one where the narrator is really mean to you and is its own character in the game, but I'm really interested in any games which are interacted with in a clever way!
