Stories in games have come a long way. What started out as simple rescue the princess has grown into some of the most epic tails you will ever hear.

A great story can save a crappy game and elevate a good game into a great game.

So my vote for the Best Story in a Video Game is

Spec Ops: The Line



My runners up:
Bioshock-Would you kindly play this game.

Xenogears-Forget Final Fantasy 7. This is the best RPG on the PS1.

The Last of Us-Haunting, beautiful, and all to real.

Silent Hill 2-No other horror game has ever come close.

I find it hard to vote for just one, but I'm going to say Persona 3. It has a dark story, with well developed characters and a bittersweet ending.

Other games I'd mention is:

Bioshock Infinite - One song featured in the game, Will the Circle be Unbroken, foreshadows so much of the story of the game.
Ni No Kuni - Touching story of a child dealing with loss and grief
Journey - Good stories don't always need dialog

Silent Hill 2, MGS3 and PW, Majora's Mask and Dark Souls, all of them are absolutely fantastic. I know I'm leaving out other greats like FF VII/IX and Silent Hill 3, but those are just my favorites.

Though, if I HAD to make a choice...

Mass Effect Trilogy. No matter what anyone says about how it ended, it will always be my absolute favorite. It was never about an end for me. But rather about the journey.

I'm a big Legacy of Kain fan personally, so I'll go with that, always loved the story and characters there, the voice acting is some of the best in video game history too in my opinion.

Halo Combat Evolved was amazing as well as Halo 2 and 3. Another good series was Gears of War and Borderlands 1 & 2

Suikoden II. Breath of Fire IV. I really liked the story in Grandia, too.
