    Final Fantasy VI is so low.

    For people who are interested in the stories behind these games. I read a great book called this history of video games. Its pretty cool. I wrote a review of it here, if anyone is interested.
  • james-repass - June 4, 2014 7:45 p.m.

    Um, Baldur's Gate 2?
  • pseudodragon - July 16, 2014 7:37 a.m.

    Yes, it's an awesome game.
  • kevin-roos - August 6, 2014 3:32 p.m.

    Agreed, great story

    was a little surprised Final Fantasy 7 wasn't on the list. for all the game's faults, it had an epic story in a very cool setting with by far the most memorable characters of the series. it doesn't get better than Sephiroth imo. & though it's a bit uneven & incoherent (to some people) Xenogears' story was remarkable in its weirdness & sheer scope. & while i love both games, Bioshock Infinite, to me, had a much better story than Bioshock, it actually made you FEEL while the first one was really interesting & well told but sort of sterile when it came to emotional resonance. let's be honest though, the Mass Effect Trilogy deserves the #1 spot (though i haven't played Silent Hill 2 i just can't imagine its story being better than ME)

    damn straight, did u play the citadel dlc?
  • johndoe1337 - May 23, 2014 7:16 p.m.

    The number 1 spot should have just been the entire mass effect series, I don't care what you think of the mass effect 3 ending, you can't deny how you felt at the end of the citadel dlc after the party, when everyone's stood at the Normandy, whoever it is that says we had a good run, we all loved shepard replying "the best" and going back to work. You can't deny that feeling.

    I don't think The Walking Dead should have placed so high or not at all. I don't feel like a game based on an existing story/IP constitutes as a great video game story. I would be like having Batman Arkham City up there.

    Not so sure about that. Especially with a creator (Telltale Games) that thrives on expanding existing universes and can easily be welcomed as canon after they demonstrate their ability to do so well. Walking Dead(comic universe), Back to the Future and Jurassic Park. Just because it's not an original universe doesn't mean that the story was lacking.
  • ora-gilbert-hendershot - May 20, 2014 7:31 p.m.

    There of course many others, and I truly think the more side stories and adventure you can do is a large part of the story! Final Fantasy Tactics, Ogre Tactics, FF VII, Halo (First One), Crystalis, Super Mario RPG, and countless more that the names elude me, but still plenty more. But the top 30s. No. The list should be more! Just Sayin'!
  • Srtj121 - May 12, 2014 5:18 a.m.

    Prince of Persia Warrior Within deserves to be in the list
  • josephgevedon - May 8, 2014 6:20 p.m.

    Maybe I need to play FF6 again or something, I can't remember the story being all that hot.

    So glad Silent hill 2 is number 1 Truly I've played all these games but nothing is compared to the shocking deep story of silent hill 2, it's sooooo sad seeing gamers that haven't ever tried the game yet saying that it doesn't desrve number one place anyone who's played it to the end and understood everythig will agree with me that silent hill 2 without doubt the best story ever
  • Nubulaa - April 30, 2014 5:03 p.m.

    I've never played silent hill but i'll deff play it now, if i may ask what platform it's on? Anyways my top stories (in no particular order) Are Uncharted series, journey (ps3 exclusives) The last of us, batman Arkham asylum, heavy rain, and red dead redemption. But without a doubt my #1 is the kingdom hearts series, i'm shocked it's not even on here. I have never been so moved by a story in all my life, not just in video games but in general. i saw someone speak on Kh one time and i couldn't put the game in better words myself: "kingdom hearts is the Shakespearean tragedy play of video games, nothing tops it," that is literally how it is. The game isn't just tragic either, Kh is easily one of the most mysterious and questioned video games and has some of the most thought provoking questions that still needs answers. The amount of theories that you can come up with, and every character is perfectly executed. Somehow Square Enix mixed Final fantasy with Disney and Shakespeare. I will try out Silent hill two but i doubt it will come anywhere near the epic tale of Kingdom hearts which has moved millions. kh3 is the most hyped game since Gta5, the last of us, and Bioshock infinite, and let's be honest Bioshock Infinite was a disappointment. I believe Kh is easily the greatest story in gaming.

    It was released in 2001 on ps2 ( don't worry the graphics are amazing for a game that old ) but you can try the silent hill hd collection on ps3 and xbox 360 it has new voice actors make sure you pick the original voices cuz the new one sucks , has few differences but still the same game
  • Nubulaa - May 2, 2014 6:38 p.m.

    I'll def try this game :)
  • PoisonWar - May 2, 2014 5:01 p.m.

    It's also available on PC! Though there can be some sound problems on 4-core systems.
  • cobra0528 - September 9, 2014 4:46 p.m.

    Great words on Kingdom Hearts! So glad to see someone giving the series the love it deserves.
  • PenguiNinja - April 14, 2014 3:40 a.m.

    Maybe not deserving of this list, but I think some of the Legend of Zelda games are pretty high up there.
