As much as a lot of people hate CoD, and I am not keen on it, I think the Modern Warfare story was actually pretty bloody amazing. Twists, turns, got a attached to a few characters, action packed far more than most games and had an amazing soundtrack to complement it. I think the Elder Scrolls story is better though, but the fact that you make the story and you don't follow it kind of does defeat the purpose for the most part of "best story line" in a game. MW has an amazing story line, but not the best that I have seen.


There are FAR more games with far better stories, but I don't play many games, unless I pretty damn love it or have nothing else to play

1: Spec Ops: The Line. If you have played or seen this game you will know why. its basically if Heart of Darkness and Apocalypse Now got mixed together into a video game.


2: Mass Effect series. Everything about it no question, changeable story line, different endings, lovable characters and an amazing ingame world whats not to like? (other than the ending of 3.  :P

Environment & context is important for initial immersion...
Wich games in my collection i choose to play here or there depend of external stimulations (can be history doc, news, books, my own researchs on the net or a specific period of time/specific war i feel concerned at that time)...

Far cold war period is a good choice without any doubts :)

About original synopsis, did u though about real event from nov1983 as initial reason to "launch history of the game" ?
It should be easy to build context with for all types of scenarios following...

The secret crisis of nov1983 were really less knew compared to cuba crisis in 1963 but its clearly the more hot moment of all cold war ! :)

Following an id error of ussr satellites, a poor little leutnant (forget his name, sorry) kept futur of mankind in his small hands... lol

Its true story, may u know it.
But if not, do researchs about, it should help u for original synopsis... (y) :)

Stanislav L. Petrov, thats the concerned leutnant...
Able Archer Nato exercice was a part of context but paranoid of KGB boss and surreal alert system to detect occidental attack was also a critical part of those events...

It should be better plan to start an hypothetic war following those events i think (and easy for imagine next).

This incredible guy were also concerned by 1963 crisis about what i saw (even if its incredible an only one guy could having important role in both events), he were in one of nuclear subs escorting convoy to cuba and, following subcom problems, he succeed to change advice of this sub commander & cancel threat of following ww3...
(The commander were sure about ww3 already started and ready to launch his nuclear torpedos on US CV ckose of him, etc...)

I always had doubts about probability where 1 only guy could save 2 times mankind from judgement day... :/ lol
But it seems true about what historians know actually... (?)

Btw, it can also be a good idea for specific synopsis linked with that Lt. Petrov inside ur game... :) (?)

I think the good story in videogames is not necessary,cause we're talking about games not movies.I also believe that all gamers have different taste of what a good storyline is.But i damn like a good story. :) I can't say what is the best storyline in a game but i can say witch is my kind of favourite story.I like the Metal Gear Solid games story but because it is too emotional and heavy i got tired a bit.So i'm looking for something light and to have mystery,war,sci fi and a good explanation why all things happening.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: best, game, story, line
