Top 10 Video Game Campaigns of All Time

List of the best campaigns in video games out there. I mainly created it to see which campaign the people would favor most. And do remember we are only talking about the story mode here, so do not vote on a game because of multiplayer or other game modes.
The Top Ten
1 Halo

Halo 1s campaign is arguably the best out of the entire series. Every stage is motivated, and offer many unique and amazing and memorable epic moods, atmospheres and moments.

And introducing a new threat that completely changes the gameplay a little over halfway in. It's one of those rare games where a plot twist ACTUALLY completely changes the actual game and gameplay. Reinvigorating the game and offering the player a whole new set of interesting threats.

Halo 2 has its moments, but fall short with the Arbiters clunky missions.

The first Halo Trilogy was truly brilliant, the first three games are still worth buying just for their story. While both Halo 4 and 5 had their successful moments in their campaign, they kind of let me down, as I was expecting more from a Halo game's campaign. Out of all the FPS games I have ever played, I think Halo: Reach has the best campaign ever.

2 Assassin's Creed

This game actually has a storyline Zelda...

3 The Last of Us

When it comes to campaign. You either vote for the last of us or you haven't played it

This game is the best that you could possibly play.

Tragic ending, excellent story. Felt like crying.

4 Legend of Zelda

You explore a huge world. Twilight Princess' world was very big and fun to explore. Waybetter than bland old 2D Mario games. I like 3D Mario though.

Best games ever

All of the games, exept the Phillips console ones like the Wand of Gameleon, rocks!

5 Modern Warfare Trilogy

This is the best campaign I have ever played. You get attached to the characters and its sad to see them go. At the end of three you can feel the rage pumping through your veins as you seek revenge.

Most epic yet passionate storyline of all games!

Masterpiece of a series

6 Mass Effect Trilogy

For me, there was life before ME, and now there is life after. Life after is better, but also tinged with the knowledge that I cannot ever come to it anew.

The single most gripping game series ever made, with second-to-none voice acting, narrative and depth of characterisation.

Sci fi action RPG at it's best. You feel attached to the story and characters.

Best game series ever

7 Half-Life 2

I loved Half-Life Series, until it stopped back in 2009. Valve should keep their promises.

8 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

I like this masterpiece!

I did not want it to end

Game of a generation!

9 Gears of War

This game series isn't appreciated enough. I'd say the campaign was amazing and heartfelt with all the events in the storyline.

The first game did it so incredible with its missions!

Best campaign ever

10 Sunset Overdrive
The Contenders
11 Devil May Cry
12 Metal Gear Solid
13 Army of Two
14 God of War

God of war is the single greatest and longest campaign I've ever seen

Great story to it

Just the best

15 Grand Theft Auto V
16 Tomb Raider Series

I mean, really, just by playing them, you can see how much they have grown over time, and the story lines are just impeccable with their connections.

Breathtaking scenery with impossible to imagine survival scenarios makes this an easy choice for best of game campaigns ever.

How good the puzzles make sense is crazy!

17 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

Best call of duty hands down.

18 Doom

While some may consider the repetitiveness boring, the way that you learn to perfect all the different game mechanics to absolutely obliterate aliens is one of the most satisfying gaming experiences that I have had.

DOOM: Eternal. Unlimited Action and heartracing gameplay, a masterpiece of an FPS for us hardcore gamers. If you critisize this game, you are simply not good enough to see the full experience.

Outplays halo by 1000%

19 Far Cry 3

Best Far Cry game. From here it went downhill.

20 Bioshock
21 Borderlands 2

Very good and funny campaign, fun to play with 2 or more people. It also has a good side story. Good customization, one of the best games I have played.

An absolute must play. If your into looter-shooters than you'll love this game. Fun campaign, and so much side story you can't get bored.

22 Kingdom Hearts Series
23 The Walking Dead
24 Shadow of the Colossus

The greatest campaign to me.
Building on Atmosphere, every chapter has a perfect balance of exploration, peaceful tracking, and then the suspense and tension grows as you get closer to each encounter which is WILDLY different, and almost none of which is at all similar to any of the others.
With completely unique solutions and behaviors to figure out.

And the massive imposing threat of each colossus is amazing. The atmosphere of each, the tone of each, the excellent unique moments each offer.
Gameplay wise and story atmosphere wise it is one of THE best of all time.

Nothing else comes close!
