    I'm going to have to give the nod to Half Life 2. It's such an amazing story, and I am eagerly awaiting the next game in the franchise.

    Forever.

    I wouldn't say the best, but some of my favorites are GTA: Vice City, Time Splitters: Future Perfect, CoD4 and Silent Hill 2. That's just off the top of my head, there's plenty more out there.

    That link sums up the flaws of ME2, plot-wise, exceptionally well. No one should read it if they plan to beat the games though.
    However, I disagree with the "spend 75% of game on fun missions" part. They were fun the first time but borning everytime thereafter.


    Fair enough. :) Still, that shows there were lots of writing flaws in both Assassin's Creeds. There are too many characters and most of them aren't memorable.

    Max maype 2 gets my ultimate vote too, I can play it all in one sitting it's that good. In fact I remember doing that over a weekend one winter, LOVE IT.

    honorable mention goes to halo 1-2 and 3, played back to back the story is epic, and I love the classic hero ending.

    but alas no body has mentioned Perfect Dark which I lov to bits, and when I first played it though hardly comprehended the story, but it's completely bonkers and enthralling and I love it to bits, and can just keep coming back to it year after year, especially in HD on XBL.

    Yes! "a hunk of meat" or "a fork" :laugh::laugh::laugh:

    Bioforge was epic in its day. Of course you about had to have Windows 3.1 with "out and back" in order to run it properly :laugh: I had nothing but issues trying to run it on a Windows 95 system:roll:

    And of course we must not leave out the original Doom from ID software in 1992:rockout::rockout::rockout:

    I vote Final Fantasy X. I think it even has the best supporting characters out there, imho. Hl2 characters were kinda 2 dimensional.

    The more I read about Alpha Protocol the more I want to try it. I kinda for a half a second considered it during the sale, but didn't look into it in time. Now it's $22...I'll have to keep an eye on future sales.

    I think of games like the original Red Faction, Max Payne, God of War I and II (I got out of consoles after the PS2), MGS series, etc. Some stories like those in World in Conflict and Freedom Fighters really struck a cord with me. I felt the original God of War was epic all the way around back in 2005. The Half Life series also has a solid story imho.

    I've played Dragon Age and Mass Effect, enjoyed both. ME2...I tried it, but didn't get into it. Beyond that, nothing I can think of at this moment.

    I know the differences between the names since my main ancestory is Italian so I suppose that helps differentiate the names. :D

    If you could get past that the game would be very good or at least that is the case with me.

    The main antagonist would be Rodrigo Borgia who is the leader of almost every enemy that Ezio has to kill to get through the story.

    Still despite everything including the odd ending I would still give 10/10 to the opening of the story with how we see who Ezio is and his "role models". :toast:

    games that goes to my all time list. 'hall of famers'

    -Half-Life 1 and 2(hopefully 3)
    Why? the Word or name Gman itself is synonymous to the word mindfucking.
    -Max Payne 1 and 2(hopefully 3)
    Why? The graphic novels, the dark atmosphere and the poetic sentences.
    -Mass Effect 1 and 2(hopefully 3)
    Why? Never seen a Space Shit Story this good since Star Wars.(and also KOTOR series cause its star wars and bioware also started it haha)
    -Elder Scrolls Series(As a whole)
    Why? The Massive Lore
    -Metal Gear Solid series
    Why? Its a tactical historical espionage sneaking sci fi military action anime story that is US friendly, but its japanese.

    All of these games has great gameplay too!

    EDIT: ASSASSINS CREED 1 and 2(and hopefully 3 also)
    Why? Story to cool to even describe(must finish game 1 to fully understand whats going on)

    I think that is called a "setting" and not a "story". :p
