Games with reactive/immersive NPCs

Hey all.

Recently I’ve been laying out my must play list, and one of the topics most interesting to me is reactive npcs, basically, npcs that react and interact with the world in an immersive way.

Of the IF you’ve played, which ones had npcs that stuck out to you in this regard? Either in the way they responded to players actions, the way they interacted with the world and or each other and so on.

(This isn’t exactly equal to actual personality. A character could have minimal personality but still interact with the world quite a bit, and of course a character could have both.)

Of course if you have your own project that you think does this quite well, you’re also welcome to mention it!

Pytho’s Mask and Best of Three are masterful with their NPCs and dialogue. I’d definitely recommend looking into them, just talking to Grant in Best of Three is super impressive and interesting.
