Best Video Game Stories Ever


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

This game series is just awesome. Not only that, but it's EXTREMELY underrated. And this game, the first in the series, is my favorite. Now, don't get me wrong, Trials and Tribulations had a great story line, but this game's plot just feels more connected. The First Turnabout is a great introduction for the characters, Turnabout Samurai is great for developing said characters, Rise from the Ashes is great for answering unanswered questions in the previous cases, and, of course, Turnabout Sisters and Turnabout Goodbyes tie together wonderfully. All the incidents, all the characters' strange actions, they all tie together in an almost unforeseeable twist. I'm not gonna spoil it here, but MAN is it good. That's why I recommend the game to anybody.

82 Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

WHY is this not on the list? The elder scrolls must have one of the most awesome and extended fantasy storylines in a video game. Ever. Don't you dare disagree with me! This belongs way up in this list.

One of the best story progression in modern gaming... this should at least be on top 25

83 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
84 EarthBound / Mother
85 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky
86 Valkyrie Profile
87 Warcraft

Warcraft has such an unique story, no other could be compared with it. From warcraft: Orcs&Humans to Mists of Pandaria (even though I hate to admit it) the story is ever exceptional.

88 Pokemon

Pokemon's story was crap in the beginning, but GEN 6! HOLY ! The story is so goo. Just play through X and Y and ORAS. The story is so good. Especially the Delta Episode! It will blow your mind!

89 Xenogears

This game is so much better than 52, sigh. I've played a lot of games, and I've played this one the most times through. The story is great, the characters are great, the combat is great, and it has a nice length. If you've never played this game, put it on your list of things to do. No seriously, get up from the computer and write it on your list right now. No not at the bottom. Erase what you have to do next and put it there. You won't regret it.

One of if not the best video game stories ever, highly deep and complex without being too deep and complex.

90 Cave Story
91 Super Paper Mario

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

92 Tomb Raider Legend
93 Resistance 3
94 Fallout: New Vegas
95 Super Smash Bros. Brawl
96 Grand Theft Auto IV
97 Mega Man
98 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
99 Sonic Unleashed
100 Dishonored

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.
