5 Best Story Games Of All Time

We could write a book about all of the different types of stories in games. But we shall only write a blog here.

A video game with a good story is not just about playing well. It can get you invested in the plot so much that you’ll end up feeling like the character you’re playing.

Good stories help players feel like heroes by giving them access to power and victory, but also by making them feel like participants in their own narrative instead of just passive observers.

In this blog, we have made a top 5 list of video games with the best stories.

Top 5 Games With The Best Stories

The importance of having a good story in video games is that it makes the game more immersive, which can make the experience more memorable and enjoyable.

So let us take a look at our best fives—

1. Her Story

Her Story is a video game developed by Sam Barlow and released in 2015. In this game, you have to search through thousands of videos to uncover the truth of what happened to a woman named Hannah.

Her Story is one of the most innovative video games that have been released in the past decade, and it’s also one of the best. The game has won numerous awards and nominations, including being selected for BAFTA’s GAME Award for Best Story.

2. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a game developed by CD Projekt RED, a Polish game developer.

The game is played from the third-person perspective. The story of the game is based on the novel of the same name by Andrzej Sapkowski.

What is most intriguing about the game is its story and its characters. In fact, The Witcher 3’s story is a lot more complex than most role-playing games on the market today. It is filled with drama, romance, and action.

3. The Last Of Us (I And II)

The Last of Us is a survival horror video game developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the Sony PlayStation 3.

The game features a post-apocalyptic world in which a pandemic virus has turned all humans into cannibalistic creatures. The story follows two survivors, Joel (the player-controlled character) and Ellie, across the country of the United States in the year 2033.

In its sequel, The Last of Us 2, where Ellie, who is now 19 years old, is on a quest to find a resistance group known as the Fireflies.

Now that you have both the editions in hand, The Last Of Us can give you a wholesome feeling, however, leaving a few drops of tear at the end.

4. What Remains Of Edith Finch

This is a story-based adventure game published by Annapurna Interactive on April 25, 2017. What Remains of Edith Finch was developed by Giant Sparrow.

The game’s story is about Edith Finch, a woman who returns to her family home after her mother’s death. She learns from her family as she explores her childhood home and discovers the stories of the various family members that came before her.

5. Silent Hill 2

Silent Hill 2 is a psychological horror video game published by Konami. It was released in September 2001 for the PlayStation 2 and later ported to Microsoft Windows and Xbox.

The game was directed by Keiichiro Toyama, written by Hiroyuki Owaku and produced by Akira Yamaoka. It was the third installment in the Silent Hill series and the second installment to be developed by Team Silent.

The game takes place in the fictional American town of Silent Hill and follows the journey of the main protagonist, James Sunderland, who is searching for his deceased wife, Mary.

Ending Note

When you play these great video games, it gives you the space to be in someone else’s shoes. Someone who’s going through a crisis and has to exude courage to overcome their situation.

Our only suggestion is— play these games yourself and dissolve into the “other” lives.
