What video game has the greatest/most creative story?
Games can weave great stories. What game has the best story or what game sucked you into the experience the most?
the greatest storyline i've seen is between alot of games in all honesty. i enjoyed the halo series plot yet didnt like the gameplay. battlefield bad company 2 has a good plot. and now that i think of it COD MW2 had a pretty decent story line but didn't capture me as well as others.
Assassins creed 2, really interesting aspect of the story and how it progresses to the end, The graphics and AI is great, and the cities in there are fantastic, Me a GTA Guy since early teens this was a revelation of a great game that incorporates what a video game is really about, seriously buy this game you won't want to stop playing, am I right people who played AC II. One of the best games ever.
Here are a few games that I absolutely love because of the story lines. I'm listing them based on genre..
World of Warcraft: Each character has a detailed background and each time you play the game, you get so engrossed to the game you can't help but play for hours.
Zelda: I love the Zelda series and playing Link. It would be awesome to play just Zelda though.
Fable: Fable is great because anytime you play, each decision you make creates a different outcome for your character
Prince of Persia: I started playing this game when the original came out years ago. Loved being able to get to the end!
Devil May Cry: One of the first games I played on Playstation was this game. I got so addicted to the game I wouldn't leave it alone. I played nonstop.
Halo: It's fun playing this game, and Halo does have a great story line it follows. (It's also fun 'pwning' nubs)
Call of Duty: This one seems pretty popular right now, and is fun!
Splinter Cell: This was a game my boyfriend and I played when we first started dating. It was fun to co-op the missions and we were able to finish to the end with high 'scores'. Awe, the memories!
There are a couple new games that I'm wanting to play that are coming out soon that have great story lines. For example:
I actually just wrote an article on examiner.com in regards to Dead Island. Check it out here : http://www.examiner.com/video-game-babe … ead-island The game is going to be awesome, and although it's mainly first person and a zombie game, the rp will be great!
Star Wars the Old Republic:
This game seems absolutely AMAZING. It's set up like a mix between Fable and World of Warcraft in a Star Wars setting. So cool!!!
Sorry for the long response! I love gaming!!
It's difficult to choose. I'll list two though. Ranging retro to modern.
Chrono Trigger: I played this game like crazy. I still play it years later. The story, is still one of my favorites. The first time I played this game I stayed up all night. Didn't get any sleep till the evening of the next day.
Metal Gear Solid 1 & 3: The stories are great, because of the characters. There's multiple layers, within the games. It's fairly deep for a video game. Delving into philosophy, social issues, war, politics, and many more layers. It's an incredible narrative. I'll also add MGS 2 & 4 as honorable mentions.
Great question so many answers.
A great story to me is one where you forget you want to beat the game, you just want to see the next cutscene/get to the next story filler.
Personally I think the Mass Effect trilogy has one of the best stories I've encountered. Well maybe not the most creative or original but definitely one of the best delivered stories in a video game. The third installment will make the franchise or break it.
I played Wing Commander 3 for so so long great story, great delivery for its day.
I don't really get into FPS games however the stories of Halo, and Crysis had me playing for hours and hours.
I think the concept of the Fallout series is brilliant. The idea of a post nuclear war has been around since the tech was discovered, and the guys behind Fallout have created their worlds and stories fantastically.
Gta IV the story works so well, how all the dlc combines with the main story is amazing. Its got to be the best.
The Metal gear series is great.
A complicated but great story.
And most Final Fantasy games have beautiful stories that just suck you in.
I like story line of "Gun" and "Call of Juarez Bound in Blood". Story line is quite similar of both these games.
The total war games had the greatests suction in my experiences with games, which are not too limited. I think first person shooters loose their grandeur faster than strategy based games--of course this is just my personal opinion, many love to play first person shooters to no end.
The Assassin's Creed series for sure. The whole 'zeitgeist' approach to real world people, places, and happenings is just amazing and really enjoyable.
Final Fantasy VII...definitely one heck of a storyline that touched on many taboos most games wouldn't at that time. In seven, you could be gay or straight. Death was a huge part of thegame and to this day, FF VII is still the most loved in the series by the majority of Final Fantasy fans, including myself.
Hands down Doom, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. Hope there is a new one on the way
Gta IV has a great storyline.. I also like fallout for the storyline because you basically make your own
MARIO!! Cool story, stars, coins, mushrooms, princess peach, bowser and a soundtrack that spans generations? Gotta be good Oh, and also, donkey kong
Most Definitely the Assassin Creed Games (1-3), only excluding the ending of each because they get a little weird.
Also Donkey kong and Super Mario. All of them. Yep, there's a lot
And also all the Legend of Zelda games from the NES to the Gamecube
I will have to go with Lord of the Rings Online. While it is obviously based upon the original trilogy, mass amounts of new original story-lines and content have been written to follow along with the story.
The best storyline I have found in a video game, in all my time playing, is Suikoden II (Playstation). Unfortunately, the game is rare, so it's expensive. It truly has one of the most in-depth stories, including a huge array of character backgrounds and the ability to customize your own story (sort of like one of those 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books)
The Final Fantasy Series For Sure, And Resident Evil Series = ]
I love Kingdom Hearts, I kept wanting to see what's next.
Any of the Final Fantasy games have great stories. But I'm being sucked into the world and stories of the Elder Scrolls RPG - Oblivion has so many twisted and interesting side-stories away from the main quest. I want to finish this before I move onto Skyrim (which looks absolutely gorgeous as well), but that may take me a while!
Two series come to mind: Legacy of Kain Series and Dead Rising.
Though very dark and depressing story, Legacy of Kain was one of the few game series I can think of where every game continues to add onto the story and some even revisiting places and times from previous games like a good book series does. The added bonus is the series is made up of two stories.
Blood Omen followed the story of Kain who is killed within the first five minutes and returns to the living world becoming a vampire doing so. His quest for vengeance takes him across the world seeking those that wanted him slain and eventually, his own conquest of the world to stop those very beings and others from destroying it.
Soul Reaver takes place 1000 years after Kain conquers the world, you play Raziel, his favored lieutenant until Kain suddenly betrays him. Raziel left a shade of his former self seeks revenge against his former lord and starts what becomes a world-changing adventure throughout time-and-space.
Both titles tie together in the last game, Defiance where you play as both Kain and Raziel who now work together to stop the one pulling the strings from the shadows of history and hopefully give the world a future worth living.
Dead Rising, on the other hand, is a great story with each individual game. The story and its ending are created through the choices you make per game play. Solving the mysteries behind the zombie outbreaks, trying to save people and fight off psychopaths, all while the clock is ticking makes it intense and rewarding experience.
Overtime mode and the True Ending made Dead Rising 1 for me because just when you think it's over, there's more story to play. All the inner details of that story also made it worthwhile.
In Dead Rising 2, you got all the goodness of Dead Rising 1, but now you have to make sure your daughter doesn't turn into a zombie by giving her a medical shot every day between 7 and 8 AM if you have it. The emotional scenes between Chuck and his daughter were some of the best I've seen. Added onto the fun was its DLC, Case Zero. This further expands the story by going back to before they both arrived in Fortune City. The day I got DR2, I bought the DLC and play through it first before the disc was ever put in the tray. It added a whole new experience for me. I usually don't recommend buying DLC, but you've got to for this game. Also when you beat it, beginning at Level 5 isn't a bad way to start your first playthrough.

We all have those video game accomplishments that we cherish. Maybe it was dominating your local arcade's Street Fighter II machine for an entire summer. Maybe it was finally beating that Genesis title, and watching the end cinematic roll at 2 a.m. Maybe it wasn't a game so much as that time you...
