Mass Effect 1 was pretty good sci-fi. If you ignored the main quest line, Oblivion had a lot of nice little side-quest stories.

Best game story on PC? Tough call. KOTOR sticks out in my mind. It's the last great addition to the canon before the three prequels ruined everything (I think one of the prequels was already out when it released but can't remember). Was a great story in its own right.

Best story game ever? Flashback. I know I'm probably one of about eight guys on the planet that remember that game, but it was a pretty sweet story. Scifi-noir type stuff I found fascinating. Up until the "Alien Survival Game Show" part, anyway.

Mass Effect, Dragon age origins, Oblivion side-quests (main quest wasn't all that great)

World of Warcraft had a pretty good backstory on what was going on,

Bioshock was also very memorable, KOTOR 1 had an awesome story, KOTOR 2 had the potential but in the end, the games in-completion ruined what would have been an amazing story

Witcher 1 also had a really great story as well, the ending was totally awesome.

Assassin's Creed had a pretty good story, especially the 2nd one, where they showed off how Ezio trained up to become a master assassin.

Petition to have this thread stay alive as much as possible. I'm a sucker for amazing single-player story lines.


You can add Dead Space 1 in there as well

The Ishimura story/character grasp and depth, and "twist" that hits you out of nowhere truly makes it one of a kind.

I wanna confirm if this is for pc titles only, are console exclusive games(MGS2/3, Zelda series, Silent Hill 2, etc...) excluded or what?

You might want to try the TSL Restored Content Mod for Kotor 2, it adds a lot of the stuff that Obsidian wasn't able to complete back in to the game.
