 #1 - Outcast - Posted by: DarthIain (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 09:32
It'd have to be Outcast. Epic revenge mission, Valley of the Jedi, Kowakian Monkey Lizards, Luke Skywalker, yep. Jedi Academy's story is just you being Luke's errand boy doing various tasks for him.

 #2 - Jedi Knight - Posted by: Iffy350 (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 09:38
It was loosely based on the Dark Forces trilogy which rock in my opinion. Jedi Outcast was almost unplayable and not very fun.

 #3 - Jedi Knight - Posted by: The_Crazy_Assassin (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 09:39
Jedi knight, because kyle takes on 7 dark jedi, and becomes a jedi himself, he sets out to protect the valley of the jedi when it's been taken over by jerec, and he get's revenge for his father's death. Oh, and the fact that you can go light side OR dark side in the game. :D

 #4 - Posted by: Xodyac (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 09:59
I never played JK, MOTS, or DF. I started w/ JKII:JO, and that has a WAY better storyline than JA, since in JA you're pretty much what #1 said, Luke's errand boy. JO :rock:

 #5 - Posted by: Zeith (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 10:02
JO, Lizardman ftw, Nice graphics for the time, Epic Lightsabers duel, Luke Skywalker, Reelo Baruk, Nar shadda, was awsome.

 #6 - Posted by: Insecure (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 10:05
Mysteries, Outcast, Knight, Academy. In that order :D

 #7 - Posted by: Unsunghero (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 10:47
jedi knight's story kills all others

 #8 - Posted by: Darth_Skywalker (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 11:03
jedi academy's sotryline sucked, jedi outcast ftw

 #9 - Posted by: Frieden (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 11:58
I would assume that Dark Forces had the best storyline, but I've only played one level of that game so I chose Jedi Knight (They could probably make another star wars movie out of that game)

 #10 - Posted by: master_yoda_ (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 12:04
I have only played JO and JA, and JO was way better, so Im voting JO.

 #11 - Posted by: yodaman123 (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 12:09
I picked Outcast, then Dark Forces II then JK3 then mysteries of the sith. Never played Dark Forces I.

 #12 - outcast - Posted by: DARK_OPI_WAHN (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 12:37
Outcast has the best Story ;) Much better then Academy and i didnt play the other games :D

 #15 - Posted by: Shrub91 (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 13:57
Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight Dark Forces Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Academy In that order.

 #16 - Posted by: Xoron (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 15:12
Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast Dark forces 2: Jedi Knight Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Academy Dark Forces In that order. :rolleyes:

 #17 - low exp - Posted by: Manganiac (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 17:08
can't vote cuz I've only played Jedi Academy, and it definitly can't be the best one :D

 #18 - definitely what #15 said - Posted by: Poofyyoda (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 17:57
All except Jedi Academy, have good stories, but Jedi Knight has the best one by far.

 #19 - Jedi Outcast - Posted by: A_L_I_E_N (Member) on 08-19-2007 at 23:25
My favorite forever, JA just don't have the same.

 #20 - Posted by: Howitz (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 01:29
jedi outcast definately,jedi academy was a disapointing sequal,those only 2 i ever played so i cant be sure what else is better

 #21 - Posted by: Johnpp (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 01:48
I just had to vote JKO. Its storyline, combined with the other ones (MotS and JK1 and DF) really made sense and I thought it was great. Of course, LucasArts dropped the story line in JKA.

 #22 - Posted by: UnaLaguna (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 02:59
As usual, JO and JA get the most votes, and probably because those are the two which people here are most likely to have played. I'm not voting since I've only played JO and JA and therefore can't make an educated guess. Although, JA's story seemed rather rubbish in comparison to JO's.

 #23 - I bet half of the voters - Posted by: WookieFeet (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 03:53
have only played the two most recent games. 15 had it completely right, and for the fools whining about the graphics of the older games, read the poll title!

 #24 - Trust me... - Posted by: JinRenegade (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 04:09
Trust me, ive played Jedi Knight, Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. Out of those 3 Jedi Knight had the better storyline. Jedi Outcast was good, but not as good as the older one. JA was a joke, the voices were crap, the scripts were c**p (cr**per than Episode 1-3), the story wasn't good either.

 #25 - Posted by: Jonny2199 (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 05:16
I've only played Outcast and Academy, but according to what I've read on Wikipedia, Jedi Knight has the best story so +1 vote.

 #26 - OMG WTF - Posted by: TheAllPowerful (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 05:17

 #27 - sry for double post - Posted by: TheAllPowerful (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 05:17
OWNED* sry

 #28 - Posted by: ook (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 13:12
Yeah I liked Jedi Knight the best. I liked how you went to the dark side or light side depending on how many innocent people you killed. It was fun to kill the helpless people, but then you were thinking "do I REALLY want to go to the dark side?" And then you wouldn't get protect. Better than JA when you would only choose whether or not you wanted to kill rosh. I mean who WOULDN'T kill rosh?? But plus, I think the best thing about Jedi Knight's story was the cutscenes. There aren't too many games out there with live action cutscenes!

 #29 - Posted by: Master_Riveon (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 19:45
who on earth votes academy second?!

 #30 - sry double post - Posted by: Master_Riveon (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 20:21
ps im downloading dark forces now, lol

 #31 - TIE - Posted by: HunterHead (Member) on 08-20-2007 at 22:41
LOL it was a tie between DF:II and JK2... I just chose DF:II because it was a classic. :P I can't believe Academy is beating DF:II.... The Academy plot :r REEKS :r

 #32 - Posted by: Sim_Lord1 (Member) on 08-21-2007 at 00:58
jo because i've only played 2 on the list, and i didn't get to finish dark forces, and i wasn't realy paying attention to the story, well... i might have been, i just might not remember

 #33 - #29 - Posted by: unifermiusmatty (Member) on 08-21-2007 at 03:38
Its not that they are voting it second, its that alot of people are voting it as their favourite storyline. it appears some people are unaware of the rosh factor =< I voted JO personally, Although yes, I haven't played the dark forces series.

 #34 - Posted by: Emperor_Kazuya (Member) on 08-21-2007 at 07:39
Jedi Outcast obviously. In Jedi Academy Tavion was complete garbage, Desann was a better boss/leader. Never really liked the previous ones....

 #35 - JK - Posted by: jedisolo (Member) on 08-21-2007 at 09:30
Read post number #3

 #36 - JEdi academy - Posted by: Icephoenix852 (Member) on 08-21-2007 at 10:25
lol the only one ive played its JEdi academy, so I'd have to say that one. :p

 #37 - Posted by: FireV (Member) on 08-21-2007 at 10:57
1. Jedi Knight 2. Dark Forces 3. Jedi Outcast 4. Mysteries of the Sith 5. Jedi Academy

 #38 - Posted by: Selek (Staff) on 08-21-2007 at 11:28
It's sad to see that so less people have played great games.

 #39 - JK1 - Posted by: Jasper_Kazai (Member) on 08-22-2007 at 05:12
Jedi Knight Dark Forces Jedi Outcast I haven't played MotS, and JA doesn't deserve a mention in the storyline category.

 #40 - Posted by: B3n (Member) on 08-22-2007 at 14:44
I'd say JK and JO tie. They both have excellent villans (especially Jerec).

 #41 - @39 - Posted by: TheAllPowerful (Member) on 08-22-2007 at 15:21
Jedi Knight and Dark Forces is the same lol

 #42 - oh - Posted by: TheAllPowerful (Member) on 08-22-2007 at 15:21
oh sry nvm i was thinking of something else :p

 #43 - Posted by: LORD_SPARTAN (Member) on 08-22-2007 at 17:22
I always prefered JO for it's quest, you're not some noname character who try to become a jedi. No! You're Kyle Katarn a mercenary who's forced to reclaime his jedi knowledge to bring justice in the galaxy by vanquishing the rest of an empire and a big nasty sith lizard. I also like very much JK for it's cool cinematics and story with real actors and FX, back then it was very cool.

 #44 - jedi academy - Posted by: starwarsobsessedfan (Member) on 08-23-2007 at 17:10
jedi academy has wayyyyyyyyyyyy more options than any of the games. You can choose your own missions, you can use dual or staff sabers and the storyline is awesome!!!

 #45 - Posted by: lightsource (Member) on 08-24-2007 at 08:46
the only good thing about jedi academy story is that you can kill that annoying rosh

 #46 - JK\DF Games - Posted by: Anakin12 (Member) on 08-24-2007 at 13:01
I like Jedi Academy because you can kick Imperial and Sith @$$ the other games story is booooooring

 #47 - Posted by: JediRob0078 (Member) on 08-25-2007 at 10:49
Yep, JO is the better story... I agree with numbah 1 there in that your basically an errand boy... with force powers... and a lightsaber. I hope the story line for Force unleashed is better, and I believe it will be... I'm most definately getting it! Yea, I know... I'm a star wars freak... Still... for a good story... JO all the way! ;)

 #48 - Posted by: unifermiusmatty (Member) on 08-25-2007 at 17:54
Judging by comment #44, I think some people might be misunderstanding the poll question.
