Video games are an interactive medium but a little story never hurts. It’s not enough to just point the gun and shoot. We need a purpose. Story provides that. Mario doesn’t have a reason to run into battle if Bowser hasn’t kidnapped Princess Peach. A good story is what motivates the player to see the game to its conclusion because, in the end, we want to make sure good triumphs over evil.
The Gamer Studio took a hard, long look at games both past and present to crown our winners. In their closest vote yet, twenty-eight games received votes and a few selections may surprise you.
