One of the biggest reason I play a game is for the story. For the most part, I won't bother with a game if I think it's story is kind of week (exception is TLoZ. Damnit Link I love you). So what are some of the best stories in video games? Here are some of mineAssassin's Creed: Probably my favorite. It goes a lot deeper in history and attempts to explain how every religion in the world is both correct and incorrect. It also creates stories about how big historical figures, such as Ghandi and FDR, all did what they did with the help of a Piece of Eden. Very interesting if you enjoy digging through the game to figure it all outHalf Life: Ever since I bought The Orange Box, I really got into this game. I actually enjoyed figuring out what happenes next more than playing it. Here's hoping Valve makes the 3rd episode soooooooon.Mass Effect: Really love I can transfer characters from game to game, so my decisions impact the story from one game to the next. Really pumped for the 3rd installment, especially since they plan to implement that idea even more.

The OLD Final Fantasy games had good stories. 7 is obviously legendary. I loved 10 as a kid, but looking back it was probably just because I was younger.Assassins Creed is definitely up there as far as scope is concerned.I'll come up with way more I'm sure, but I have to think on it.

Dragon Age Origins has a pretty good story, as does the Uncharted series. The best stories, however, are Ico and Shadow of the Colossus. Those games have amazing stories.

I never knew what the fuck was going on during Shadow of the Colossus. I just questioned why I was trying to kill these magnificent giants. Yes, that's precisely why many said it was a masterpiece, but there's a fine line between being intentionally vague and just being a lazy developer. There's definitely a gray area to be exploited.

I can respect that. I still think it's something every gamer should expierience, though.

Shadow of the Colossus was pretty amazing, but not story wise. Just the scale of it all.

I guess that when I said "story," you misunderstood. Somehing about it, maybe the feeling you get when fighting colossus, and I just put that under story, for some reason. Ico's story is pretty good though. It's made by the same company. Be warned, it hasn't aged as well as SotC.

One of the games I really liked the story of was Super Mario 3

I totallt agree, Assassins Creed had a great story line. It was really awesome seeing the piece of Eden in places of which you knew. Since I'm a history major I was like if only it were true.... xD

My favourite storyline is probably Zelda" twillight princess or occarina of time. But of course you cant forget good ol mario....
Posted February 27, 2012 - 06:10 PM
I mean I can kind of understand Zelda story line wise, but Mario? That is probably one of the most popular games that lack any kind of story line.
Posted February 27, 2012 - 08:25 PM
Thats the point Good ol mario. Just go jump on turtles to win
