Escape into These 10 Immersive Video Game Universes with Amazing Storylines

Video games have come a long way from the simplicity of Pong. I've been pulled into watching games others play because the storylines have grabbed my attention like a movie.

So the question is, “Which video game has the best story arc? Here are the top-voted responses.

Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption has always been so great,” one user expressed. Another added, “If Red Dead Redemption 2 were an HBO TV show instead, they would have swept clean both the Emmys and the Golden Globes.”

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

One person exclaimed, “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic belongs at the top of this list!” Many agreed. However, some argued, “I enjoyed Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II story more than the original."

Max Payne

“The storytelling in that game was next level. It's legitimately what got me into playing games outside of just Mario games or other fun wholesome family games,” another confessed. 

Assassin's Creed

Another added, “I loved all the storylines for Assassin's Creed up until Black Flags. I learned so much about Italy from the Ezio storyline that it was one of the reasons I aced Art History at the time.”


Ever since I've played it, there has been this itch in me that any other game can't scratch,” one user admitted. “Soma. It's fairly scary in a gameplay sense, but then the story takes it to another level,” another agreed.

Bioshock Infinite

"There were so many emotions. Sadness because the journey is over, wonder, amazement, pride, remorse, etc. I lay in bed that night, questioning existence and life. Hands down the most profound experience I've had in gaming.”
