4 best story-centric games for Xbox Series X on Amazon India

Video games are a great way to tell a story that doesn’t always translate well to movies and TV shows. Games put you in control of the protagonist, and rather than just seeing what they’re doing, you get to play as them, leading to a deeper connection with the lead character and the side characters. Games can tell stories through environments, background lore collectables and careful narrative structures at the right moments. A game’s storytelling can take leaps that fall flat in cinema or TV. Here are some of the best story-centric games to enjoy on your Xbox Series X console. 

Red Dead Redemption 2

Red Dead Redemption 2 has one of the best video game stories ever. The game puts you in the shoes of Arthur Morgan, a gunslinger from the Wild West. Red Dead Redemption 2 tells the story of this character and the entire Van Der Linde gang, side characters, and overall is the story about the paradigm shift towards a civilised, modern American society. The player is taken on an emotional and heartfelt journey in the game. The game has well-written dialogues, and a deep narrative relayed to the players, immersing them and giving them a reason to move forward. Speaking of that, the open world is incredibly alive, and there’s something new to find at every turn. 

Resident Evil Village

Here’s a game with a spooky and creepy premise. The player gains control of Ethan Winters, a man who has moved to new lands to find peace and solace with his family. However, the inhabitants of the European village are not keen on outsiders, and now, they are on the hunt for Ethan. The player must navigate spine-chilling environments, creepy characters, and a narrative that makes you scared to sleep alone at night. The gameplay is pretty good and has a survival aspect, which means you will need to manage inventory space and resources. 

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition

If you’re looking for something with a sci-fi touch, this is the game to opt for. It has a riveting plot, a likeable main character, and a crew of memorable characters—these range from space troopers to aliens and even robots. The game is set in the faraway future and across multiple planets and galaxies. There are a host of side activities and adventures to take on before you move forward towards your main journey. It is a great game to unwind and relax after a busy day. 

Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice

A game that takes on real-world mental health issues, Hellblade is a story about a game battling depression. The game puts you in the head of a young female warrior, and the foes you fight are voices in her head that create doubt, confusion and a lack of determination. The game is challenging, and the goal is to push through and persevere. There’s a sequel to the game currently in development, which seems to be on a grander scale. So, catch up on the game's lore and embark on a memorable journey.
