Spec Ops: The Line
Yager Development / 2K Games (2012)

I fucking kid you not, Spec Ops: The Line deserves special mention for easily being on of the most powerful, kick you in the guts, seamlessly integrated reactive narratives I have ever played. If you have never played this, you are doing yourself a disservice. The game will make you very uncomfortable, and that's the whole fucking point.

SPOILER WARNING

RE: Best story?
All of Fallout. The whole world is amazing. The lore is simply huge and spectacular. You can read books about it.

GTA San Andreas. CJ, my man. Who here hasn't been CJ?

Half life. It's Half life...

Baldur's Gate. Fucking epic storyline.

RE: Best story?
I haven't found anything else like Baldur's Gate for story quality. Other games tell very good short stories (like Deus Ex), but with some quality editing the Baldur's Gate series could be epic film material.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

RE: Best story?
I could rant on and on about games with excellent stories (FFX, Fire Emblem Blazing Sword, Dishonored) but by far the winner IMO is Borderlands (1 & 2)

I can't stress enough how much I love those games, especially the second one. I never grew tired of it, and now that I don't have it anymore (I haven't for a couple of months) I'm having withdrawals.

Best story in a video game?

Superman 64.

Pepsiman also has an awesome plot/story.
