That's funny, I didn't think the whole 'mech tactical strategy' portion of the Sakura Taisen series counted as '100% dialogue'. Furthermore, there IS narration present in the game through Ookami's point of view, i.e. a first person perspective, in the same vein as (off the top of my head (and bookshelf)) books like Fight Club, The Great Gatsby, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. One could also argue that the visual nature of ADV games is a replacement for some of the narration found in a novel describing characters and the surrounding environment. The inclusion of images is its own type of narration, and to describe these things in text would be redundant. See also: comic books and graphic novels.
