Best Video Game Stories Ever


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
82 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.

83 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky
84 Valkyrie Profile
85 Tales of Symphonia

A lot of twist. Original and deep characters. I don't already play Metal Gear Solid but I think that Symphonia is a lot superior to Grand Theft Auto and God of War. I am surprise, Mega Man has a story?

86 Xenogears

Easily the best video game story by a long shot, it makes every single game in the top 10 of this list look like a episode of Loony Tunes. The content of the story is deep, the sci-fi setting is awesome, the tone is expertly portrayed, the plot is massive, but the symbolism and the themes of the game are what really push this game to new heights. The central theme of incompletness and deception is so powerful and is shown through many sensitive subjects such as corrupt governments, abusive parenting and most importantly through religion. It has layers of complex meaning to it and it's something that once you pick up you can never put down. Xenogears is one of the only two games that have truly inspired me (the other being Shadow if the Colossus) and it is a experience everyone should be able to experience.

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.

87 Fallout: New Vegas

Good sotory

88 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.
