Set in Raccoon City, play the stories of rookie police office Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield as they attempt to make sense of a deadly zombie outbreak. Resident Evil 2 is a remake of the 1998 game of the same name. Unlike the 1998 game, which uses tank controls and fixed camera angles, the remake is an over-the-shoulder third-person shooter. Unlike the original game, players can now save their progress whenever they like inside safe rooms, however there is an option to play Hardcore mode in which players will only be able to save by collecting and using the limited number of Ink Ribbons. Upon completing the campaign for the first time players can then play through the 2nd Run as the other character where the story runs concurrent with the first playthrough, for example several doors will already be found unlocked.

What is a Story Rich Game ?


A story rich game will focus on telling a story through the player character’s actions and interactions with both the world and other characters.

Whether it’s an exploration game such as The Witness, a first-person shooter such as Half-Life 2 or a platformer, like Hollow Knight, story rich games rely on the narrative being told, such as with tabletop games like Dungeons and Dragons.

A game rich in story is not limited to a genre. One of the most popular PC games on Steam is the incredible Portal 2, a first-person puzzle-platform game that reveals the story through a narrative that is expanded upon as the player solves the game’s puzzles and riddles to continue forward.

Games such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, have heavy dialogue and multiple choices that can change how the story plays out. The story is told through the interactions the player has with other characters, with a heavy focus on dialogue.

Story rich games often have a story that is set in stone and, though they may offer multiple choices with dialogue, quests or multiple endings, the story will not change as the game progresses. These games will often overload the player with information and new characters to meet to keep the player hooked on both the character and story being told.

Belief in the story, in the character, relies heavily on the player’s ability to take on the role of the character, to be able to see the world in which they are put in from the character’s point of view and to make it come to life. Story rich games are for those players looking for a way to not just play as a character, but to share the pain, difficulties, love and life of that character.

As players we often put our hearts into the characters we create, or take on in story rich games, whether its spending more time in the character creation than in the game, or making sure we only read every piece of lore we find scattered around the world. Story rich games are more than a distraction, they are a chance for us to forget who we are and to experience another adventure.


This is where Tags come in.

Why Are We Doing a Top 15 Story Rich List

In the world of Story Rich Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.

Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
