The best videogame stories ever

GamesRadar - Games are meant to be played, but ever since Donkey Kong introduced a story with a beginning, middle, and an end, the digital medium has slowly recognized its potential for storytelling as well. Over time the writing has improved, better graphics have allowed for more interesting techniques, and every now and then a game pushed the boundaries of just how mature a story could be. By this point gaming is undeniably a storytelling medium, and we’ve experienced some incredible stories in our history of gaming.

I agree with the list, especially the number 1. However, It misses Shadow of the Colossus, Xenogears and Beyond Good and Evil, in my opinion.

Nice list, glad to see Red Dead in there.

Red Dead's story up until the last 2 hours was pretty much nonexistent and what was there, a man doing favors for idiots, was utterly stupid like the majority of most R* stories. All their characters begin by doing nonsensical favors for random idiots for a good 20-30 hours before any real story.

But Red Dead Redemption's ending was good.

"a man doing favours for idiots'" is the cornerstone of any great story line.

good list I like the fact persona 4 was on the list

Having Torment that low on the list is a joke. The list itself is agreeable enough though.

True. Imo Torment's story is the best in videogames.

Red dead redemption by far has the best story in my opinion

I second that, while many games have a twist, that ending was something I never thought was going to happen. I knew it could happen but I never thought they would have the balls to do that to us

It had no story except for the last 2-3 hours.

But what was there at the end was good.
