The first time in awhile that I agree with a list with the only game that I haven't played being Marathon.

The Resistance franchise seems to be missing, as it also had a decent storyline. Though I wouldn't replace it any game of the games on the list.

The original Half-Life had a great story, they just didn't really tell it in the game.

those are all good games but only half of them have a good story

halo has one of the most overdramatic gampaigns ever, and the story line is mediocore.

Once again, what so many people seem to fail to grasp: just because you don't like it doesn't mean it's not good.
