As far as Halo goes... well, the books, quite possibly yes. The books were great. I dunno about the game though, at least, the first one I thought was kinda simple (what story there was, was good - there just wasn't a lot of it). Halo 2 was pretty good though.

i have to say the Neverwinter Nights series and the Baldurs Gate series had best storyline. and as much as alot of you disagree, i believe Doom 3 had one of the best storylines ever, no matter how basic and simplistic it was.

Either Deus Ex, Mafia, Max Payne, Half Life 2, or Silent Hill 2 :D

Considering what was said I changed morrowind to mafia... which is also a pretty cliched story but I've never seen something like it in a game done so well... if that makes sense.

Yes, definitely.

Hell yeah! =D>

Err... not really. Max Payne's story (and plot) isn't anything special IMHO.

Too right! :)

Well... I dunno about that as I haven't [thoroughly] played any of the Silent Hill series games.

How is Morrowind's story good? It's pretty cliched and in the end not much better than any other fantasy game.

I don't see any other good noir stories.... When I picked Max Payne (which includes 1 & 2) I picked it for the great narration and dialogue..

Doom 3 for best storyline? Is that some sort of joke?

Splinter Cell's alright though I guess if you're into that sorta stuff. Haven't played San Andreas so I can't really comment.

I like the stories of BioShock and BioShock Infinite a lot. So many deep philosophical roots.

BioShock is essentially Atlas Shrugged the game and the setting of Rapture was an awesome twist to Rand's philosophy.

Infinite is an interesting play on manifest destiny and delves into the darker chapters of America's past with how America was formed aka Columbia. And all the crazy quantum physics tier stuff at the end lol.

idk, for me personally these two games are really solid stories.

Runner up would be Planescape Torment probably.

I found the Bioshock games to be kind of paint by numbers and shallow. They place themselves adjacent to extremist ideologies and crazy science ideas, but they don't really address them in any serious way. Infinite is particularly anodyne, with its "everybody's bad tho" and quantum space magic stuff. Great ideas, stunning visuals, not much substance.

I'd place Torment much higher. That game still blows my fucking mind. Although it's obviously far less entertaining and playable.

Well, I'll break down what I got out of the two games. I think there is some substance there but these are merely my interpretations. I just replayed them not that long ago and idk man, I can't really quite place any other story in a game that I've enjoyed as much as these, other than Torment of course. I hear ya, it blew my fucking mind as well.

BioShock: Rapture is a representation as a movement away from socialism. Andrew Ryan’s philosophy is directly taken from Atlas Shrugged. Ryan is an atheist hence “No Gods or kings, only man” mantra in the very beginning. He represents a giant stride away from government and only focuses on the reality of self interest. Rapture is also a direct mimic of communism under Ryan’s vision since he was tired of not getting due credit for his input in the industrialized world above. Plasmids are a direct response to unregulated free market which Ryan opposes. In Rapture, having plasmids was a better overall ideal of consumerism than following Ryan’s philosophy of a highly regulated market. This was the beginning which leads to the civil war between Ryan and Fontaine in the form of Adam. Adam was the thorn in Ryan’s free market’s side and caused the residents of Rapture to turn into maniacal drug addicts since it wasn’t regulated. The Little Sisters are basically representations of Ryan’s failure in his idea of a perfect society in which he uses them as tools to harvest Adam for personal gain. That is directly him disobeying the very ideals he chose to rebel against with Rapture, thus creating a disastrous failure.

Infinite: Columbia is a play on the White House you could say. Columbia is a representation of living in a world chosen for “God’s people” which is a direct reference to the mass European immigration to America, Columbia is also early American civilization. People fled to Columbia because it was the “Promised Land” by God. Infinite is a satirical look at the dark side of religious exodus. They tie into manifest destiny by claiming Columbia (America) was above the rest of the world and was only meant for the holiest of a union. The ones who didn’t believe in Christianity were either forced to or wiped out. The reasoning behind such cruel behavior is excused simply by fulfilling a mission from God. A lot of parallels to what we did the Natives and Hispanics in our darker past as a country. The main mantra of Columbia was “Protect our faith, wealth and racial purity” which can be said the same for how America was founded. I’m not religious by any means but I’m just going off of history. The notions of slavery and cheap labor are also illustrated in Columbia, and are pardoned simply by it being God’s chosen land. The citizens of Columbia pretend this is rational behavior when in reality there is widespread paranoia. To deal with the paranoia they lean towards racial segregation and lynching as a coping mechanism in a city full of mad freaks. This is why the “Patriots” are giant robotic George Washingtons since they don’t faithfully represent liberty and are mere creations of it. I think the “everybody’s bad tho” works in this scenario. The main point of Columbia is there is no simple good or bad guy. What the people call revolutionary can also be seen as dictatorship. I found that parallel to be interesting.
