Re: Best Story in a Videogame?

My picks:

Mass Effect 2

Dead Space 2

Metal Gear Solid 4

Ace Combat 5 and Zero (i don't give a rat's ass if they're on PS2, they're damn good games)

I liked: Fallout Series

MGS Series

Ace Combat 5 and Zero (4 seemed a little weak to me)

Call of Duty Black Ops (The best story in the COD series IMO)

The Fallout series are epic, but the stories are a little loose. Good, but loose.

Demon's Souls, for no other game in this generation manages to deliver such complex depth to story with such few sentences.

While DS has an outstanding intro and in-game intro, cut scenes, spoken dialogs and per level short descriptions; the needed greedy or its story is told by way of environment & game play.

  • By way of Endurance, you become that summoned hero
  • By way of Longing, you will become that lost soul (one of the many ones you see roaming around about its business on its own dimension)

Limbo and Purgatory don't have a damn thing on the World and the Nexus that bind of us all.

For this gen, I would go with Heavy Rain. Well structed story with no plotholes.

Heavy rain was highly original and I loved every minute of it but the reason I didn't put it on my list was PRECISELY because of all the plotholes!

In my honest opinion, there are not very many PlayStation®3 video games that have strong narratives. Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Heavy Rain, and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots are fairly strong in the storyline department (overall) but I still prefer the storylines in video games such as Silent Hill 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater to the storylines in these video games (call it personal preference). With that being said, there is one video game on a competitior's video game console that I believe is the bee's knees but this is not the Off-Topic Discussion section (take that for what it's worth)...

I agree with you, Uncharted 1 & 2 take the show away from any other. In addition to this I will say that Crysis (Original) has a better story over Crysis 2. To bad Crysis (original) wasn't out for the console. I had it for the pc.

Silent Hill 2 had an amazing story line that was very immersive.  For this generation of games though I'd have to give it to the Mass Effect series.  It had been a long time since I actually cared about the outcome of the various characters, and had been confronted by actual difficult choices in a game.
