This is true.

I've played a lot of war games but none have ever had a worthwhile story, until I played Spec Ops.

Definitely recommend trying out Spec Ops one day. It's a surprising change.

Halo franchise.

The original Homeworld.

I haven't played any historical or pseudo historical war games that had what I would consider a good/original story.

Metal Gear. Especially MGS3 because it captured much of the key points of the Cold War.

Spec Ops is probably the only true story driven war game out there. Halo would be what comes close to the category when we include sci-fi.

I liked the old WW2 Medal Of Honor games. The original Ghost Recon had a good plot of events (and even a forecast, there was indeed a war between Russia and Georgia in 2008, just like the plot in GR foretold).

Didn't play any of the Gears Of War games, but I think they have a story.

Crysis?

This would be the correct answer, but this is in the "PC Gaming" section smile.gif

But I would definitely say the Metal Gear Solid series if OP isn't just asking about PC games specifically. Spec Ops has a good story, but the gameplay isn't especially good (which is actually intentional for the feel the game tries to give and the point it tries to make). So if you don't mind being bored a little bit with somewhat bland gameplay and you are just interested in the story, then that's a good one.

For a game with a little less of an agenda, the Halo games are pretty good. I think the Bad Company games are supposed to be pretty good, a bit comical with its "ragtag squad of goofballs" type of thing it's got going on.
