    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.

    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.

    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??

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

    LMAO, I got thinking about games with awesome storylines and forgot the topic was about SFF games. can't blame a guy for not thinking clearly after a 10 hour shift.

    Freelancer comes to mind, but to be honest, I don't know very many SFF games :)

    Most of the famous games and those which sell well are SFF especially the action-oriented games and they have really good story lines. At least the good ones do.

    FFVII is my all time fav story.
    Oblivion is another great one.
    Assasins creed i find very original and quite refreshing.

    FallOut: New Vegas. As one would expect from an Obsidian game, the story is compelling, complex, and the karma/reputation system makes a huge difference to the story, and its outcome.
