Are there any story-based RPGs anymore

Skyrim has lots of strong story content in my opinion. The main story isn't exactly brilliant - but I loved the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves Guild questlines - and there's a shit-ton of neat books to find. We're talking a staggering amount of story, really.
I think I spent 80 hours with Skyrim when it first came out - and I kept finding new books all the time. I was very impressed by that.
Maybe that's not "story-based" but I don't think it can be so easily dismissed.
Overall, I think Skyrim has been treated with too much scorn - and while I can appreciate that Oblivion created some justified backlash - I don't think it's entirely fair to add Skyrim when reacting against post-Morrowind TES games.
Ok, it's still not a masterpiece in terms of story and NPCs- but it's better than a lot of people give it credit for.
