Memorable Story Games

Postby Tyler » Wed Apr 26, 2017 10:09 pm

The CoD thread made me think of this.
What video games do you actually remember because of the story? Most games are fun because of big moments and challenges, but what games do you remember the story?

Games that come to mind for me:
-Bioshock
-Portal
-All Telltale games that I've played, but they are basically tv shows. TWD, TWD 2, Wolf Among Us
-Firewatch, but for the same reason as Telltale
-Gears of War
-Shadow of Mordor, but that's fresh in my mind
-Super Mario Bros.
-Alan Wake, even tho that game dragged on for me


Games I'm surprised didn't make the list once I started thinking about them
-Halo, I don't remember specifics
-Arkham games, Joker died, but everything else was generic Batman stuff

Halo is one that I would put for my list. I always liked the story of it even though I never finished Halo 4. The introduction of the Flood in the first Halo is still one of the most fun/scary moments of my gaming memories.

Last of us is great. Halo was probably my favorite story mode for a game that was primarily a multiplayer shooter. Titan Fall 2 has a very good story also.

It certainly suffers from being PlayStation exclusive. It's not a Halo where people used to buy Xbox strictly to play Halo. I wouldn't buy a PS4 just for last of us no matter how good the story is.

Speaking of PS exclusives, in college, my roommate would play God of War a lot and that was fun just to watch because the story and cut scenes were like a movie.

I did consider doing their online streaming to PC service just to play it, but it's too expensive and would take months for me to finish the game. Maybe this winter...

It's easy to remember a simple story!

The rest of them look great. I'm looking forward to Last of Us 2
