9. Kena: Bridge of Spirits
Kena tells the story of a young Spiritual Guide who must help rebellious souls to leave the physical world and enter the Spirit Realm. It’s an almost Pixar-like premise complemented by some slightly more traditional fantasy concepts.
Just like a great Pixar movie, Kena tells an at times overwhelmingly emotional tale that uses ‘cute’ design elements to force you to let your guard down just so that he can absolutely destroy you with his most devastating plot points. There is so much heart and humanity in this wonderful fantasy tale.
8. Tales of the Ascension
The Tales the series has long enjoyed generally fantastic storytelling, but Tales of the Ascension is arguably the biggest franchise story to date. In fact, there are times when history is arguably a bit too big and a bit too rich in lore.

No matter how deeply this game’s story dives into its lore, the personal elements of that tale manage to form a compelling foundation that makes embracing the weird (and dark) places of this game much easier.
7. Life is Strange: True Colors
The Life is strange the series’ consistently excellent storytelling makes it eerily easier to overlook just how True colorshistory is. It’s so easy to take the quality of these games for granted.
