Video games are a fantastic place to lose yourself, resulting in some of the best and most memorable narrative experiences in recent years.
From the epic AAA blockbusters of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Red Dead Redemption 2 - that provide hours upon hours of engrossing storylines - to the smaller hits of Gone Home and A Night In The Woods, there are plenty of spectacular stories just waiting to be uncovered.
While developers want players to experience as much of their game's story as possible; putting all the best, most important parts in the main plot, sometimes they'll hide a little something extra in there too.
Often requiring players to perform specific actions, talk to a certain character at a specific location, or search every nook and cranny to uncover some fascinating piece of environmental storytelling, these stories are the perfect reward for intrepid players willing to dig a little deeper.
While not essential to completing these games, uncovering these secret stories are nonetheless a delight in themselves, and well worth the extra effort it takes to finding them.
