Top Ten 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 could be in the top spot just for reach, but with so many amazing campaigns, no wonder it is number one

Halo: Combat Evolved is greatest campaign ever. Hands down!

Instant classic

Reach is the best campaign I have played by far. 3 and ODST are also fantastic campaigns. Well, basically any Halo game made by Bungie has a great campaign (the one outlier could be halo wars, if you aren't into RTS).

2 The Last of Us

Simply awesome

One of the most emotionally touching games I have ever played

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

Most touching game I've ever played

3 Half-Life 2

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

I love the source engine and thew story continuing

4 Legend of Zelda

It has one of the best storylines ever took me up to 2 months to finish it but I still play it and it is so much fun


I love legend of Zelda games

Best games ever

5 Mass Effect Trilogy

Best game series ever

Absolutly amazing


6 Modern Warfare Trilogy

Masterpiece of a series

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.

Clearly Modern Warfare 2 is the superior of The 3, but they are all still really good

Best Call of Duty trilogy

7 Assassin's Creed

This game actually has a storyline Zelda...

1: Kingdom Hearts Series
2: Assassin's Creed Series
3: Call of Duty Series
4: Crash Bandicoot Series
5: Mario Series. - Alpha101

Assasins Creed Best Campain ever Call of Duty campain is Not better Then assassins creed

8 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

I did not want it to end

I like this masterpiece!

I cried at the end and screamed "gove street 4 life! "

9 Metal Gear Solid

Metal Gear Solid 5

One of the best games what I ever played

10 Gears of War

All 6 gears games have amazing campaigns

Best campaign ever

Should be number 1

Love this game!


The Contenders

11 Sunset Overdrive
12 Devil May Cry

Best characters... Best boss.. and... it's my best campign serise ever

13 Kingdom Hearts Series
14 Mario Series
15 Army of Two

good game

16 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.


17 God of War

Without a doubt currently the best game of all time

Great story to it

No question.

Just the best

18 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.

That hansome jack doe

19 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

The best Call of Duty ever made

Best call of duty hands down.

20 Grand Theft Auto V

It's great! Has great grafics, realistic and so on!

21 Tomb Raider Series

How good the puzzles make sense is crazy!

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

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.

22 Far Cry 3

This game is just amazing

The first pc game I played. The best FarCry game by far.

23 Bioshock
24 The Elder Scrolls
25 Shadow of the Colossus

No english needed to make me cry

Nothing else comes close!

26 Assassin's Creed II
27 The Walking Dead
28 Silent Hill 2
29 Grand Theft Auto IV and V

WHATS WRONG WITH YOU SAINT ROW 2 AND 1 IS WHERE ITS AT I mean literily grand sucks its stoopid

30 Uncharted 2



Just how?

Uncharted 1 through 4 have amazing stories for every single game. Uncharted 2 is by far the best as all of the characters are intriguing and the story is just all together so amazing. After Drake gets shot by Flynn, Drake shoots the explosive canisters and flips the train. This level is my all time favorite because as Drake is moving slowly and close to death, you have to climb up the through each level of the train as it’s hanging from the cliff. Every villain you face won’t go down without a fight even after you win, like Flynn with his last attempt to kill you by blowing you up or Draza who overpowers you and Chloe has to kill. When fighting Lazaravic at the end of the game, there is such a unique mechanic where you have to shoot the explosive sap from shangrala. While you fight him, you really feel as if you’re fighting someone with amazing power and not just some easily defeated boss who you can best without thinking.
