What PS3 game do you think has the best story?

I would say Heavy Rain and MGS4.

from what i have played, uncharted 2 has a really good story that kept you wanting to progress thouigh the game(and it helps that its a great game too). but i only have like 10 ps3 games, and none of them has really impressed story wise.

MGS4 if you followed the series. Stand alone... I'd say... Can't think of any original games with a good story on the PS3... Batman:AA was good but it had an iffy story it was the voice acting that got me.

Uncharted 2 in the closest video game to date you will ever play that feels exactly like amulti million dollar action movie. With a great story and a perfect ending.

Name one? One game that isn't a sequel that has a story comparable to MGS4. I honestly couldn't say one Uncharted I have to disagree because all it is, is running around like Indiana Jones with explosion and creatures sounds like a Micheal Bay movie to me.

Bioshock OBVIOUSLY. MGS4 is only good for followers of the series. Heavy Rain really wasn't that great. Uncharted 2's story was rubbish, the characters made it. Not the plot.

If you want just the single game, not the series (meaning MGS4 gets kicked out) then I would have to say Final Fantasy 13.

It depends on your taste.

If you like dragon ball and pokemon's story, the MGS4 probably has the best story.

If you like Indiana Jones, then Uncharted 2.

If you like Alien, then Dead Space.

If you like CSI, then Heavy Rain.

MGS4 and Dragon Age:Origins quickly come to mind. Gotta include Valkyria Chronicles too. Uncharted 2 didn't really focus on it's story much, while FFXIII is story heavy, but not executed perfectly IMO. Pretty much disliked Heavy Rain too. Was I the only one that liked Demon's Souls backstory? Made some of the boss battles a lot more atmospheric (not all though), especially the boss of 5-3. It's somewhat similar to another game that definitely deserves mention, NieR. More story to it than DS, and if you take the time to go through the game and then through at least NG+, you'll get a great experience story wise. Not to mention if you go and read up on the games backstory too. Definitely one of my favourites.

MGS series by a landslide. Valkyria Chronicles as a stand alone.

MGS has a crazy story that really can hook you. Heavy Rain has a great story as well, at least for the first playthrough.

MGS4 probably has the greatest video game story ever but you really only get it if you've played the MGS1,2 and 3. However, if you played the first 3 then played MGS4, the game is like a gift from a God(yes, I'm a bit of a fanboy). When it comes to stand alone stories, I'd say BioShock. The characters are some of the best in video games and the writing is really good, the story is one of my favorites since you've never see any of the twists coming but once they happen everything makes sense.

MSG4 (i followed the story so it was totally epic to me) - I think this game should have had trophies or they should release a free trophy patch so that we can play it again for trophies, that game was just 2 epic!

MGS4 - Amazing end to an amazing series

Heavy Rain - Though it had some plot-holes, I can forgive it for having likable characters and one of the best plot twists ever.

GOW3, for twisting Greek mythology into God knows what kind of awesome epic. Heavy Rain and Uncharted 2's story looks good only because it's executed perfectly. If not, it's just another big movie formula. For originality, I'd say GOW and inFAMOUS.

What PS3 game do you think has the best story?

I would say Heavy Rain and MGS4.

I might have bought Heavy Rain if someone had not spoiled the whole story for me. :( That includes pretty much all of the spoilers. D:
