We often see long discussions of gameplay mechanics, critiquing how something works, or how balanced it is. While those things are certainly important in evaluating a game, sometimes I want to sit back and enjoy a great story. Luckily, there are many great stories in video games, and the medium lends itself to presenting them in a way that helps you engage yourself fully. These eight games are some of my favorite story experiences.

As you ride across the southwest United States and Mexico, you'll encounter some great characters who are struggling to come to terms with the new government presence and the end of the ways of the Old West. You'll find plot twists, betrayals, and more in Red Dead Redemption.
