Story Game(s)

So one of the things I find interesting, now that my friends have gotten me into games, is that there are games that are stories and the story progresses by what you say or choose to do. By which I mean your character is given a dialogue option when talking to another character & based on which option you choose the story progresses. 
This is the main layout for
the entire game
One of the potential photos
you can earn through
purchasing story lines.
I downloaded one out of curiosity & found that it basically tells like a story with three different possible endings for each character you choose. Of course being a game there are other options, dressing up the avatars & such but the main part of it was reading the story & choosing options to get closer to an ending.
Throughout the story different pictures of the avatars can be earned through purchasing things to progress the story. A way for the game to discreetly get money, a pay to play if you will, in which the game makes the player want to pay money to get the desired photo and ending. I thought it was a clever layout for the company to get money & the players to choose different stories. As a story it was enjoyable enough & the artwork is really good for it but there weren't many options to choose from as far as dialogue, mostly the story was set in motion & you choose which path to take at the end of each chapter.
