Thumbs up Which Game has the best SFF story?

You guys would've played lots of games. Which according to you has the best story?

IMHO, the best story would be the Half-Life series. Brilliant storyline and an extra-ordinary execution. What will be your choice?

Gears of War? Crysis? Or something else... Please tell your views.

Re: Which Game has the best SFF story?

Yeah, i'd second the Half Life vote. I'd also like to throw Star Wars: Knights of the Old Replublic, Bioshock and Dead Space into the mix. (I also really enjoyed the stories from the Jedi Knight Games.)

Never played the ones you add. Bioshock has an very interesting premise though. An underwater Utopia?

And soon to be aerial utopia.

Gears of War - no way.

FFVII and FFVIII are my votes, and Mass Effect.

I love the Diablo universe. I recently got my hands on the novels, should be fun to read.

I did enjoy KOTOR as well.

Re: Which Game has the best SFF story?

KoTOR series
Baldur's Gate series
Mass Effect series (since it little more than an interactive movie, with you guiding the camera)
Neverwinter Nights 1 and 2 (won't call them a series, since the two stories have almost no links apart from peripheral NPCs)
Dragon Age: Origins
((i think its obvious that i'm a huge fan of virtually everything that BioWare produces))

Lord of the Rings Online has in incredibly rich story (if you follow the Epic quest chain), far far richer than any other MMO.

Baldur's Gate?? Seriously?? Have never played the game before. KoTOR is a nice choice. Having Mass Effect, not feeling like playing it.

Then, World of Warcraft should have a brilliant storyline if it comes down to MMOs. Does it not??

Re: Which Game has the best SFF story?

Yes Modern Warfare is no where near SF, it just has modern weapons which exists today.
