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

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.

Amazing story, Evan better if you have read the books

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).

Halo the best

2 Legend of Zelda

I love legend of Zelda games

Best games ever

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

This 8s by far the best, there is just so much to do...unlike mindlessly shooting people on a screen.

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 Mass Effect Trilogy

Best game series ever

Absolutly amazing


5 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.

I like this masterpiece!

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

7 Assassin's Creed

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

This game actually has a storyline Zelda...

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

8 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.

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

Best Call of Duty trilogy

Best campaign trilogy in fps

10 Sunset Overdrive

The Contenders

11 Devil May Cry

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

12 Gears of War

Should be number 1

Love this game!

Incredible Campaign, if this doesn’t make it it's a shame

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

13 Mario Series
14 Kingdom Hearts Series
15 Army of Two
16 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

17 God of War

Great story to it

Just the best

No question.

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

18 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

The best Call of Duty ever made

Best call of duty hands down.

19 Doom
20 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.

21 Far Cry 3
22 The Elder Scrolls
23 Bioshock
24 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

25 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.
