MY ONE list of the game who I think have the best storys.
Top 11 Storys in a Video Game. Why top 11 ? Because I am always one step above.
You probably already know that the list will be full with RPGs.
DONOT expect games like Kingdom Hearts, any of the new Final Fantasy or Tales games, Metal Gear Solid (NOTE: I DO NOT HATE Metal Gear Solid. I simply think the storyline is way too confusing, a confusing story dosnot mean that is good. Simply put the game is little overrated) and EarthBound, o man earthbound is soo bad the characters are annoying all of them are idiots, the story is laughable bad, the battle system is agh terrible, to the fans of earthbound go play RoboTrek is like EarthBound but is way way better the storyline is good, the characters are great and ....... its a Enix game of course THE GAME WILL BE GREAT.
OK lets start. The same rule as my last top 11. One game for a franchis.
#11. Breath of Fire IV (PSX)
Like previous games in the series, Breath of Fire IV takes place in a fantasy world inspired by both ****cal European and Japanese folklore. A number of races resembling humans and anthropomorphic animals populate the land, which carries a predominate medieval and sword and sorcery theme. The world itself is divided into two distinct cultural halves: the Western Fou Empire, modeled after feudal China and East Asia, and the Eastern Kingdoms, with areas resembling both Medieval Europe and Arabia. While both cultures remain at an uneasy alliance following years of turbulent war, the actions of several military officials threaten to once again pull the world apart. Watching over humanity are the Endless, immortal godlike beings who take the form of dragons and control the elements that sustain the world. Much of the plot deals with the central characters' interaction with the people and Endless who inhabit the world. Throughout the game the player will play as Ryu and occasionally play as the game's antagonist Fou-Lu. Fou-Lu is the first Emperor of the Fou Empire and is referred to as a god Emperor. He seeks to rule the world as a god, however, he needs Ryu to accomplish his goal.
#10. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (WII amd GC)

#9. Final Fantasy VI (SNES)
Final Fantasy VI takes place on a large, unnamed world. During the course of the game, its geography and landscape change due to various developments in the game's plot. During the first half of the game, the world is divided into two major continents and referred to as the World of Balance. The northern continent is punctuated by a series of mountain ranges and contains many of the locations accessible to the player. Halfway through the game, the world's geographical layout is altered, resulting in its two large continents splitting into several islands of various size situated around a larger continent at their center. This altered layout of the game's locations is referred to as the World of Ruin.In contrast to the medieval settings featured in previous Final Fantasy titles, Final Fantasy VI is set in a steampunk environment. The structure of society parallels that of the latter half of the 19th century, with opera and the fine arts serving as recurring motifs throughout the game, and a level of technology comparable to that of the Second Industrial Revolution.
#8. Vagrant Story (PSX)

In its golden years, Leá Monde was a thriving community until an earthquake struck the town 25 years before the game, destroying the city and leaving the ground unstable.The Grand Cathedral and the Temple of Kiltia are at the center of the city. Beneath the ground is an abandoned mineshaft and limestone quarry, the darkened labyrinths of an "Undercity", and the dark Iron Maiden dungeon.The maze-like Snowfly Forest, named for the so-called snowflies that can be found within, grows around the city. Other locations include the Graylands, the setting for the prologue event; and Valnain, the city where the Valendia Knights of Peace's Headquarters is located. While Valendia and Leá Monde are fictitious, the game's scenery is inspired by real-life landscapes of the southwest of France, including the city of Saint-Émilion.

Aleph, which in turn has been guarded by the town of Vale at the mountain's base over the ages.

Aleph with the intent to take the Elemental Stars for themselves, but fail to solve the riddles guarding them and are driven away by the mountain's trap, a magically generated thunderstorm and rock slide.
In the present, the teenaged adepts from Vale, Isaac, Garet, and Jenna, join Kraden in his research of Mt.

#2. Terranigma (SNES)
In Terranigma, the Earth is portrayed as a hollow sphere that has both an external and internal face. Since the beginning of the Earth, the external Lightside, the overworld, stood for growth whereas the internal Darkside, the underworld, represented decline. Over the course of billions of years, these two forces came to be called Good and Evil. Regardless of the inner antagonism, rapid progress took root and primitive life forms evolved to plants, animals and humans. Technology and industry revolutionized the evolution, but the fight between Good and Evil was still taking place, more fiercely than ever.
