Since the creation of video games the medium has been evolving with better graphics, hardware, gameplay, and of course, narrative. Games slowly evolved into strong medium for story telling, and they seem to be getting better every year. Now that the new console generation is slowly moving forward, I would like to take the time to honor some of the video game narratives of the previous generation. Keep in mind that these are my personal choices and do not reflect the opinions of the website’s other writers."
