Sly Cooper techniques

Or, successful integration of story and gameplay.

Sly Cooper is searching for his family book, the Theivius Raccoonus. Storywise, each of Sly's ancestor adds a technique and then Sly can use it after he finds it. After finding Ruichi Cooper's page, he can ninja spire (land on spires and perch there).  His father's page allows Sly to slide on laser beams.

This is a good integration because Sly has to unlock each of these techniques (by finding the page) before he can use them.  A few of them are mandatory, but you can ignore the pages if you wish or collect all of them.  They help, but they are explained in story and you can only collect the techniques when you find them.
