How the hell is this not number 1? Theories are everywhere for this crap.i bet scott made the story impossible to connect

The theories though. Toy Chica is the dead kid's mom, The Marionette is the dead kid, the father is Scott, Scott is Purple Man, the brother who everyone hates is Bonnie, people quit making idiotic theories!

There's like a million theory's every where and everyday people come out with new ones. The bad thing is is that some of them don't even relate which gets me really annoyed

Should be Number 1 - DCfnaf

6Mother 3

This is my favorite game. The story is sad (its literally around a kid's mom dying), the game is fun, the soundtrack is great, and the characters are great. Please don't judge me for this claim. - shawnmccaul22

I love this game and all, but it it is just so pretentious and is almost completely lacking in any sense of subtlety whatsoever. - xandermartin98

7Super Mario Galaxy
8The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
9Portal 2
10The Last of Us

The Contenders

12Fallout 3

The player character has barely any effect on the world. He/she is merely a pawn of the game's NPCs who really drive the plot.


Minecraft has no story, all while it has one. Why did you vote for it? YOU make the story yourself. Are you a pirate? Are you a warrior? Are you a god? It's your decision.

I'm not denying that this game has a wonderfully charming and beautifully written storyline with amazing twists and turns galore...

but people seriously need to stop treating it like the type of deep, serious and philosophical plot you would see in a game like Xenogears. - xandermartin98

The game was okay, but overrated as hell. And the fandom? ABSOLUTELY CANCER. They scream into your ears "UNDERTALE IS THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD WHOEVER HATES IT DESERVES TO DIE" Like seriously? They need to die just because they have a different opinion from you? I swear, Underrale fans are the worst.

If I hear "papyrus is bae" or "I want to marry sans" I will flip a table. I'm sick and tired of all my friends liking this "best game of all time." The characters are idiots.

15God of War
16Metroid Fusion
17Metal Gear Solid 4

The whole storyline of this game is very incoherent and just plain fan service. The only Metal Gear game with a really great story is MGS3.
