Story-telling is an art and like many forms of creative expression, video game story-telling can be especially unique. Narratives can unfold in linear fashion or non-sequentially while making the player an active participant in events. And while some stories can be relatively straightforward, others are complex to the point of requiring multiple playthroughs. Let’s take a look at 15 titles with some of the more complex stories out there.

Alan Wake travels to Bright Falls with his wife, who subsequently goes missing, but must also contend with the darkness within. Remedy’s high-profile Xbox 360 title was touted as a visually accomplished action-adventure game before launch.
