Best Video Game Stories Ever


The Contenders: Page 5XW

81Grand Theft Auto IV
82Mega Man
83Chrono Cross
84Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
85Beyond: Two Souls

This is the best game storyline I've ever seen.


Honestly one of the greatest games I have ever played. Your choices have consequences and you actually start to grow onto Corvo after a while.

87Valkyrie Profile
88Beyond Good & Evil

I sometimes noticed it incidental, but never really expected much and always left it on the shelf.
It has turned out as an intensive and absorbing masterpiece, which left a deep impression.
Its only downside is the soon ending and there is no second part yet. - gemz


This is possibly the only storyline that can have every emotion at once sure twd was good but catherine was just a crazy game

90Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time

This is the only video game I've ever played where I genuinely felt more excited about the story than the gameplay, as great as that was. It's pretty intense for a Pokémon game. Time travel, backstabbing, sacrifice, end of the world, yeah this story has it all.

91Dragon Age Origins
92Radiation's Halloween Hack

This is indeed freakishly well-written. - xandermartin98

Disturbing and nightmarish as hell

93Super Paper Mario

Probably the best story in a game if not in a Mario game

95Dust: An Elysian Tail

Played this when it was free on the Xbox and I was surprised how I got so caught up with the storyline. I overall really enjoyed This game.

96Left 4 Dead

It's not the best, it has the same story as any zombie movie, the disease hits, people turn to zombies, and a group of survivors meat and try to escape

99Call of Duty: World at War
100Uncharted: Drake's Fortune
