    I personally like the list but I think that Fallout 2, Planescape: Torment, The Witcher 2, and Metal Gear Solid 3 should be closer to number 1 than they are. Just my opinion though. I thought they were all very well written with great stories. Im gonna put a shameless self plug here. Please visit my page and help me accomplish a dream that Ive had for a very long time. Any amount will help me immensely. If you can help please do so and if you know someone who might, share the link with them. Even if you just give a dollar it will go a long ways to helping me accomplish what Im hoping to do. Thanks.

    Amazing entries, I've only played few and enjoy them all. Some games I'd personally put on my list: The Last Story Xenoblade MGS4: Guns of the Patriots Halo 3: ODST Ni No Kuni Tales of Symphonia All fantastic games with well developed stories.

    Night of the Rabbit has an amazing story line, and while it feels like a kid's game, the story is good enough to have you coming back to see it again. I wish there were more games like it. No grinding, no mindless violence (in fact, no violence at all. you beat the antagonist by outsmarting them). Everything in the game is to advance the story. definitely worth an honorable mention

    there's one thing i know without doubt: tlou is the most cliched and pc story in video game history.

    As far as i have played games, i think the best stories were in Final Fantasy VI, FFXII, The Walking Dead 1-10 and Metal Gear Solid 4. I think that Final Fantasy VI should have atleast made it to the last 10! Also theres no FFXII or MGS4! They should have easily made it to the list because they have much better stories than for example GTA:SA or Hotline Miami. I just played trough The Walking Dead Season 5-10 and i think it was BRILLIANT! I had to play it all in one time because i was so into the story :D! After playing that game trough i had to download the episodes 1-5 again because the 2nd season reminded of how amazing story was in the first season. And because of The Walking Dead series, i think Lee is the best video-game character so far! I also noticed that there's a DLC for the Season 1, The 400 Days And i can't wait to play it!!! By those means, my opinion is that The Walking Dead has so far the best story i have experienced. And i have played trough most of those other games except Planetscape Torment and couple others. If anyone here haven't played The Walking Dead I advice to buy it right now and enjoy! (It doesn't matter if you have watched the show or not)

    How come you guys forgot this?
  • BladedFalcon - November 18, 2014 11 a.m.

    Sorry, but in no way is The Walking Dead's story better than The Last of Us. Even removing the sham of the so called "choices" TWD has, the overall story and themes it covers aren't really that original or deep. Very well executed, certainly, but a lot of it still felt terribly predictable. Not to mention that some characters are cartoonishly terrible. (Hey there Ben!) TloU however, makes every character matter, and you can beehive every single one of them as well rounded human beings that would exist in real life. And the core conflict and message is also a very human and relatable one. And told in a way that very few games (or movies for that matter) had the balls to do.

    I'm not the biggest defender of TLOU, but I agree. TLOU has the better storyline. Walking Dead is just fine.
  • LegionOfBoom - December 24, 2014 5:43 p.m.

    i'm sorry, but, both stink and tlou, btw, has the most generic gameplay in history.
  • BladedFalcon - December 25, 2014 midnight

    Had you said "most generic gameplay of the generation" you might have had a bit of a point, but by exaggerating, you have shot yourself in the foot. 2D platformers are by and large the genre that has more games historically, and thus its the most generic style of gameplay. Besides, gameplay had nothing to do with this discussion. Regardless of that, TloU's story was excellently written, paced and bold as hell.

    Elder scrolls isn't on the list this post can go fuq itself
  • janishewski - January 14, 2015 12:14 p.m.

    The Elder Scrolls is my favorite game series, but the stories were garbage. Writing and storyline have always been the worst part about ES. Maybe Fallout New Vegas should have been somewhere here, but no way on the ES series.
  • markegiani - September 2, 2014 4:56 p.m.

    Where are the adventure games here ?? Except ''To the moon'', there is no single P&C adv. game on the list. Traditionally, they have the best scenario in gaming world. That is why we play 'em. I'll just say Syberia ....
  • LegionOfBoom - December 24, 2014 5:48 p.m.

    i will love filling my 360 library with great games for pennies while others pay 60 bucks for their laughably casual idiot games on modern systems. go casual go.
  • janishewski - January 14, 2015 12:15 p.m.

    I played adventure games since the days of Kings Quest and I can't remember most of their stories and can't think of any that should be on this list except maybe Gabriel Knight.

    RDR and Bioshock infinite and TLoU have much better story than the original Bioshock !
  • LegionOfBoom - December 24, 2014 5:40 p.m.

    tlou was the most laughable pc spawn i've ever played. i haven't played infinite, but, the original is a very start for a story.
  • bryan-san-jose - August 19, 2014 5:14 p.m.

    Guys, I literally just finished Silent Hill 2, and it's a damn good game. You can buy it online, search for Silent HILL HD Collection, you'll get 2&3 on a PS3 disc. Not sure about Xbox 360. But definitely a must play for all gamers. If you're play one game from the Silent Hill series, definitely should the second. Also, I think Bioshock Infinite & Last of Us is way to low. The plot twist for Infinite should be enough said to project it higher, you can put Infinite's story with the best with and make a strong valid argument. There is no other game that will take us on an emotional ride like the Last of Us. Once in console game. These games are a MUST play.
  • janishewski - January 14, 2015 12:18 p.m.

    I thought the end to Bioshock Infinite was corny, hack, multi reality shlock and it felt super forced and disjointed from the rest of the narrative. Just my opinion though.
