Is there a game on XBOX live with a good story?


Something like an old school RPG. Not Mass Effect, or Oblivion.


  1. This one game have a best story.

    => Fable III

    * Feel the Heat in New Vegas–Not even nuclear fallout could slow the hustle of Sin City. Explore the vast expanses of the desert wastelands – from the small towns dotting the Mojave Wasteland to the bright lights of the New Vegas strip.

    * Feuding Factions, Colorful Characters and a Host of Hostiles–A war is brewing between rival factions with consequences that will change the lives of all the inhabitants of New Vegas.

    * New Systems–Enjoy new additions to Fallout: Special melee combat moves have been added to bring new meaning to the phrase “up close and personal”.

    * An Arsenal of Shiny New Guns–With double the amount of weapons found in Fallout 3, you’ll have more than enough new and exciting ways to deal with the threats of the wasteland and the locals.

    * Let it Ride–In a huge, open world with unlimited options you can see the sights, choose sides, or go it alone. Peacemaker or Hard Case, House Rules, or the Wild Card – it’s all in how you play the game.

  2. Going to make a few assumptions – you say not Mass Effect or Oblivion, but you want an RPG, so I’m going to assume you’ve played these games and enjoyed them. I’m also going to assume by Xbox Live you mean Xbox Arcade. If you just want Live enabled games let me know.

    There are lots of good games on arcade, some with good stories, but very little that I can think of that is comparable to Oblivion or Mass Effect.

    If you want old school RPG, I can only really think of Vandal Hearts, but if you just want old school, there are huge possibilities.

    You could try Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (not the new one!) or Shadow Complex. Both play in a similar style to classic Metroid games – you explore the map, and get new equipment to level up your character.

    The equipment and leveling is far more controlled in Shadow Complex, but it’s prettier. SOTN feels more like an old school RPG with a level grind, and has (arguably) a more captivating setting. I couldn’t pick which one I prefer, but both were in IGN’s top 25 Live games.

    If you really want story driven games, you can’t find better than the Monkey Island remakes – hilarious, challenging and great story telling, although they are in no way an RPG.

    As far as XBox originals go, you could try Fable and then it’s sequel as someone mentioned. It’s a proper RPG and cheap for what you’re getting. Alternatively, Psychonauts is the best game on there, although again not an RPG.

    But perhaps your best bet would be Jade Empire? It’s an RPG, it has a great story and is made by the same people as Mass Effect, although the combat is far more old fashioned (it’s not an FPS!)

    Word to the wise, as good value as xbox originals are, they are still cheaper on ebay!

  3. Well Metal Gear Rising will have an amazing story (not out yet) mgs used to be ps3 exclusive and are world renowned for their cinematic sequences and story telling, epic single/multiplayer gameplay too.

    I miss ps3.

  4. Fable 2

    Rise of the argonauts

    Lost odyssey

    Dragon Age Orgins


    Final Fantasy XIII

    Fallout 3
