Best Video Game Stories Ever

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

First time I've ever felt completely immersed In a video game's story. It one of those factors that really pulls you in and makes you want to keep playing.

Wonderful game. Better than the third :) WHY no. 10?

22 L.A. Noire

One of the best detective games I've played. The last missions were near perfection.

If this story was a movie, we'd call it one of the best noire movies of all time.
And the Black Dahlia Killer! WOW! The best case/missions/level I've ever played.

23 BioShock Infinite

By far the best game I've ever played. I've played it so many times through already and every time I'm in love with storyline. The DLCs make the game even better. The connections that are made to the previous games just tie everything together to make one hell of a story. Not to mention the gameplay is flawless and so much fun once you get good with the guns and vigors.

Its a breath of fresh air compared to all the brown and boring first person shooters of late. Yes, I'm talking about Call of Duty and battlefield, which are both nothing more the gun masturbation.

24 The Saboteur

Blowing up fuel depots, zepplin's and Panzers are just another day at the office for Irish saboteur Sean Devlin

Who need Resident Evil when youcan have The Saboteur. You get to play as Sean Devlin, an Irish race car drivr turn saboteur as he causes chaos against the Nazis.

25 Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception
26 The Walking Dead

The story NEVER gets boring, it's so meaningful!. You'll always find yourself immersed in it. I was so attached to the story line I almost cried when I made Clementine shoot Lee. I felt the tears about to fall out. No game has ever come close to making such a good story line to the point where I would be so emotionally attached like that. It won game of the year for a reason!

I am incredibly shocked that this is #29! If people think Halo, The Legend of Zelda, and Mario have better storylines, they must've never played this game. While this game has gameplay that isn't as good as the aforementioned games, it has the most amazing storyline. I've never seen anyone NOT cry after playing this game who didn't have the ending spoiled.

Why is this number 30 under the likes of Halo, Mario, etc? There's nothing more to this game than pure story. I haven't seen a single gamer NOT cry at season one or two. This game deserves top 3 At LEAST

I have no idea how this is not number one, let alone having to be added onto the list - ChickenKing

27 Mario

I'm really disappointed about this. Mario has a very generic storyline that everyone complains about, and yet the beautifully written RPG games like the Paper Mario and Mario and Luigi games are overlooked. I may be a bit biased because I love Mario, but the stories in these games are some of the best I've seen, including books and movies. That's how much I love these often overlooked games.

I liked Mario because it does not have a super complicated story line like some others on this list. It is a classic story of saving the princess from the evil villain. Mario keeps it simple and that is what I like about it.

I love the main series games, but the stories aren't legendary. I enjoy the rpg stories from Mario though. - HeavyDonkeyKong

28 Mafia II

This is one of my favorite recent games the only problem I have with the game is the lack of free roam and I feel the game could be longer, otherwise it's a great game!

None other game is best as mafia 2 is... No one can go upto the level of mafia 2

I can't believe this. This story will send shivers down your spine. This game is the epitome of survival horror. What have you done with your life if you haven't played this!

36 BioShock 2
37 Half-Life

Said to be one of the best games ever made plus it's a hell of a good sequal too

38 Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
39 Chrono Cross
40 Call of Duty: Black Ops

Only a fool will ignore the plot of this game. The graphics, the flash backs, the actions, everything is just beyond being a computer game. It's really deserves number 1 position.

The best storyline ever!
