The plot or the narrative of a game is of the defining factors of most modern games. In fact for many people its the story makes or breaks the game.
I really don't know how you can put Bioshock Infinite on there but not the first Bioshock...
I just didn't want to put multiple games from the genre
Ehh also it's the floating city of Columbia, not Victoria >_<
Yeah I corrected it
Bioshock Infinite's story wasn't the best. The game's best assets are it's artistic graphics. The look of the world. The memorable soundtrack and the character design.
Who's hot chick in the picture ?
I think it's bad cosplay of Elizabeth from Bioshock...but it's pretty bad.
Elizabeth from Bioshock, but in DLC version
Haha right? I'm trying to meet her at the bar later.
Quantum Break was a fantastic story rich game.
No the disagrees are from those who hated the fact they had to spend so much of their resources on a throw away average TV show when the cutscenes could have done the job And you are wrong about story rich part too it was average at best
Yeah the TV show cut scenes killed the game for me. My brother and I were hyped for the game since we're both fans of Alan Wake but those cut scenes were just unacceptable to us(not as bad as Need for Speed but still awful). I think we got through the first episode and once we got to the second we were done.
Dragon Age Origins was so fun and amazing. Too bad Bioware could never make another good Dragon Age game.
II was the best 😲
The best if you are blind and deaf and have never played again before...then no it's still trash.
The only good thing about that game was the character Isabella. She was ridiculously hot for a video game character
Inquisition was good. Not great, and certainly not near the level of Origins. But it was still a good game.
It was mediocre at best. The only reason it looked better than it did was because 2 was an abysmal flop.
Agreed, got it for $10 on PSN and ended up really liking it.
Too many fetch quests just to open the nicely designed main quests
Played life is strange 3 times and each time i stopped at episode 2, could never get into it
To be honest it handles time travel terribly. You can't have just two endings for a time travel narrative as well.
Same. I thought it was dull, and the writing was cringingly bad.
Best game ever next to The Last of Us
The last of us? The whole world is rich as well as great emotional narrative. Horizon zero dawn? Pretty good story, a twist on a normal type of a post apocalyptic story setting imo. Red dead Redemption? Following John Marston through his story and the rich world is fantastic! The witcher 3 wild hunt? Rich story if nothing else with a lot of depth in the game world! Sure each to their own. But I really think you missed some games here. Persona series also rich on story. Final Fantasy, chrono trigger, Ni no kuni 1. Divinity Original sin1-2. Pillars of eternity. The list goes on but some of these examples do not hold a candle to some of these titles here.
You're right but I wanted to highlight some of the less popular titles. The ones you mentioned are already very well known
Props for having Prince of Persia 08. Not a lot of people seemed to like that game but I LOVED it.
BuzzLight year: Opinion, opinions everywhere!
For me FFVII, TW3 and Legacy of Kain Soul Reaver.
The Yakuza series has the best stories
The Last of Us, Life is Strange, BioShock series, Portal 2, Mass Effect series, Soma, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Heavy Rain, God of War, Red Dead Redemption
You had me until I saw Prince of Persia :D Also up for consideration: Narcosis. Not so much the story itself, but how it's told and manages to gutpunch you in the end.
Where is Deus Ex?
You must be quite young.
Any list that mentions story rich games but doesn't include The Last of Us us a bust. I agree with some of these, but that's a terrible exclusion that makes me disregard this person's opinion entirely.
TLOU, GOW? Whats with this list?
Monkey Island !!!!!
I would like to put the story from the first Mafia in this list. Awesome story, characters, the way the story was told... pure brilliance in my opinion.
Great read, loved the article
More people need to play games pre-PS1 console era or even after that from PC.
Not into smokers, but she is hot. I thought i was the only person who enjoyed this Prince of Persia game.
Silent Hill 2, Zero Escape: Virtues Last Reward, To the Moon, Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core, Yakuza 0, Xenogears and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater smashes every single entry on this list IMO.
wow what a garbage list
Gran Turismo II. A very deep and rewarding story about about a faceless dude with infinite money who's goal is to own hundreds of cars, including 27 different Nissan Skylines. It ends kind of like Inception with no definite answers, leaving you to your own interpretation.
