So much lore to tap into! I really hope Bungie does a solid job this time around.
What are some of your top choices for best video game stories? Let's hear it. Here's my top 3: 1) The Witcher 3 2) Last of Us 3) Final Fantasy 7 <--- I can hear the FF6 players raging already.
The Last of Us was incredible in my opinion. I finished the game in two weeks because of how involved I was in the story. Also, the gameplay was very fun! Definitely one of the best third person story/shooters I've played!
In terms of pure storytelling, all gameplay aside:
The Last of Us was a master class in storytelling. In my opinion, the pacing, the writing and the acting was the best I've seen in a video game ever.
