Best Video Game Stories Ever


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Deus Ex

It was one of my favorites back in the day. I played it again last year and was amazed at how well it holds up. PC Gamer mag even gave it the best game of all time award. DX2 and 3 were mostly good, but not as good as the original masterpiece. X-Files meets James Bond meets Blade Runner.

Deus Ex in my opinion deserves to spot. I just love the conspiracy story combined with dystopian, cyberpunk setting.

the best I'll give you 1000$ if don't like d story or d game!

42 Shadow of the Colossus
43 Halo 2
44 Life is Strange

This game changed my life. I have never felt such an attraction to characters before. This for me has the best story in a video game. It is complex, beautiful, and you write it. You make your life in this game. You choose all of your actions. This game is a masterpiece and is very melancholic.

Best game ever I have played in my entire life. The story, characters, graphics, music, everything in this game is just perfect.

They should make this game into a movie the story is so good.

The best its even better story than the witcher series the assassins creed series and the uncharted series and the last of us this game siriusly is an AAA+ 10+++

45 Beyond: Two Souls

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

46 Undertale

You don't have to kill everyone, but you can. Filled with hilarious scenes and touching, tear-jerking moments, this is probably the greatest story-based video game. who knew pixellated skeletons and goats could cause so many feels?

The best video game of all time. I'm sorry, friends, but UT touched me in a way nothing has before or since.

A very heart felt story and it knows how people think witch makes for a great story

How is this below mario.

47 Resident Evil: Outbreak

This game is one of the best stories ever, due to different endings. - MeeMeeCandy777

48 The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky
49 To the Moon

Perfectly mixed with funny moments and sad touching storyline

Who knew a pixelized game could have such an´╗┐ effect on you? A fantastic story and ending!

50 Batman Arkham

Batman Arkham has really one of the best stories, especially for a superhero game series

51 Dead Space
52 Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga 2
53 Assassin's Creed

Assassins creed is deep, really taking place in the present age. (Spoilers! ) The story follows Desmond, a bartender captured by abstergo, the Templars of the present time. He was forced to go through the animus a machine that allows him to see the memories of his ancestors, a long line of assassins (Altair, ezio, Conner, maybe Edward ) and to locate the pieces of Eden, which is what the Templars use to take over the world. And so continues a long seirs of in and out of the animus looking for the pieces of Eden. Beats Grand Theft Auto.

It is my favourite video game storyline. I think it should be at least in the top five

Especially Assassins creed 2. That deserves its own separate spot

54 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

You really get connected to the charactars. I feel like it should be in the top 10. This series has been like a childhood firend to me, and as I grow up, the more I play, and the more I become connected. I'm going to hate the day they stop with the modern warefares.

55 Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening
56 Halo 3
57 Starcraft
58 Dragon Age Origins
59 Assassin's Creed: Ezio Trilogy

One of my favorite trilogies in gaming.
The third game is pretty average, but the first two is just amazing

60 Mortal Kombat

No mortal kombat here? This franchise is awesome and its storyline is very interesting, catchy and just contagious. I adore MK. Just play konquest modes in Deception, Shaolin Monks, Armageddon and MK 9. Real entertainment - Magnolia

Great Story, even better than the movies
