    as i remember i got involved mostly in Max payne and max payne 2: the fall of max payne, i believe it was a wonderful way of telling the story in noir style, good old memories..

    Chaser. An fps game few will recall but had some of the best storytelling the genre has to offer.

    HalfLife1 and both No One Lives Forever titles had great stories. :)

    ...and The Elder Scrolls Oblivion of course. The mother of Skyrim.

    Metro, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Original F.E.A.R.

    Some people mentioned Chaser, yes I think it was one of the best shooters very diverse and very long. The story is similar to Total Recall movie.

    The first Red Faction. Absolutely captivating story for a sci-fi fan such as myself.

    I'd agree if either of them were shooters.

    I had tears in my eyes in borderlands 2 on my first playthrough though admittedly i was enchanted by the game, Bioshock Infinite was incredible though, Booker Dewit and Elizabeth great gaming memories.

    Original F.E.A.R for me was amazing. I had never seen particle effects like that game had with the sparks flying all over the place, safe to say it was a stressful time for my AMD Athlon 64 3000+ and Geforce 6800GT. But the story was awesome, and I never saw the ending coming WHAT A TWIST! My jaw hit the floor when it happened.

    Also, BioShock Infinite that story was great, gameplay got a little redundant after the first five hours but the acting, script, story, set pieces, all got me hooked and the ending was truly probably one of the best endings I have EVER seen/witnessed in a game ever! So deep, and tackles a lot of issues most games shy away from. Levine will always be held in high regards for that.

    I actually prefer BioShock 2's story over the first games.

    But...

    PREY - It's actually a very solid story.
    The Darkness II - First game's story is great as well, but it's console only.

    BulletStorm - I know I'm mostly alone, but I feel it's got a solid story once you get past the profanity and childish humor.
