Re: Your Favorite Video Game, Story-Wise (and why)
Is this a list of Favorite VGs or Favorite VGs (Story-wise)? Because some of the VGs listed above have little to no story.
The Bioshock series was rich in story. As somebody else mentioned, Half Life for its time was gamebreaking too.
Some old games which had a great story IMO include:
C&C: Red Alert
The Chronicles of Riddick: Butcher Bay
Another great story-driven game was Heavy Rain. An excellent detective thriller where you play several different characters.
