Story-Driven Games You Should Play


If you are not in the mood for first-person shooters, you could always opt for games that are more story driven than action-packed. The thing about story-driven games is the fact that they keep you captivated through the entirety of the game and the story has you asking for more.

Here we have compiled a list of PlayStation games, you should play, here is a list that should help you decide the games you should play. 


Uncharted is most certainly one of the best story-driven games to have been created. The story is about Nathan Drake, who is a descendant of the famous explorer Sir Francis Drake. Just like his ancestor, Nate is also a modern-age explorer and in each of the Uncharted games, he is looking for lost treasure after carefully researching its history. Nate goes out searching for the lost city of El Dorado, the treasure of Shambhala, the Iram of the Pillars, and Henry Avery’s lost ship. The games are full of a series of puzzles, a lot of gunplay, and fun boss fights. If you are someone who is a fan of National Treasure and Indiana Jones, then Uncharted is definitely what you need to play. You can get the bundle called the Legacy of Thieves edition which is a compilation of almost all the titles. 

Final Fantasy VII

One of the best games made by Square Enix, Final Fantasy VII is the best seller out of all the Final Fantasy games, other than Final Fantasy XV. The story is about a Mercenary called Cloud Strife who lives in a fictional Metropolis called Midgar. He fights against a corporation called Shinra which harnesses energy for the planet and in the process is potentially harming the planet too. Cloud joins a team that intends on defeating Shinra, since Cloud was a soldier for Shinra previously, he knows how the system works. The main antagonist of the game, Sephiroth, is also a soldier for Shinra. Eventually, Cloud goes head to head with Sephiroth and eventually puts a stop to Shinra. Final Fantasy VII has been released on the PS4 back in 2020 as a remake and the game is also going to get a sequel very soon on the PlayStation 5. 

The Last of Us Remastered

The Last of Us is one of the most iconic games released by Naughty Dog. The Last of Us was initially released on the PS3 but later it was remastered for the PS4 as well. The story features a post-apocalyptic America, which has been attacked by a brain-eating fungus that turns people into zombies, and they start resorting to cannibalism. The story is about Joel Miller who at the start of the game loses his daughter and is a single parent. So, he has no family left. He then becomes a smuggler and one day he is tasked to smuggle a girl across the country to an organization called the Fireflies because that girl could potentially be the cure for the virus. The girl called Ellie, and Joel then start their journey and along the way, they start developing a bond Joel starts considering Ellie his daughter and grows attached to her. On their journey, Joel and Ellie meet a lot of people and while some of them are good, some of them turn out to be bad for them as well. They fight a lot of zombies on the way and it can easily be said that The Last of Us has one of the most emotional endings ever. One of the best things about this game is that you have limited supplies and you need to make sure you use them wisely so that you can survive longer. You need to make sure you save your bullets and use all your resources wisely. 

God of War

Everything in all the God of War games connects. This is the story of Kratos who was a Spartan warrior and was misguided into attacking a village that also had his wife and his daughter. These nightmares haunt Kratos as he decides on taking revenge on the Greek Gods of Olympus. Kratos starts his journey and first he kills the God of War, Ares who was the one who misguided Kratos. Kratos then moves to Mount Olympus in God of War 3 where he eventually kills all Greek Gods. In the PS4 reboot of God of War, Kratos is now much more composed rather than aggressive and he is joined by his son Atreus as they travel through Norse mythology now.
