Top 10 Best Video Game Stories

8. Silent Hill 2

Fifteen years after its release, Silent Hill 2 can still boast of being the greatest horror game of all time. A lot of its quality can be attributed to the game's subdued and sinister storytelling. You're placed in the shoes of James Sunderland, who gets a letter from his deceased wife saying she's still waiting for him in their "special spot." The meeting place? The creepy and dangerous Silent Hill, where nothing is what it looks like at first glance. Rich in symbolism and imagination, the narrative slowly makes you wonder how attached you are to your protagonist.

7. Bioshock

"Would you kindly?" Utter those three words in the presence of anyone who's played Bioshock, and they'll give you an understanding look. The story of the dystopian underwater city known as Rapture is fascinating in itself, but it's that mid-game twist that truly elevates Bioshock to another level. And who could forget the Big Daddies and the Little Sisters? The more audio logs you uncover, the more you'll realize why Andrew Ryan's magnanimous project was doomed to failure from the very beginning.
