I think so. If not, what do you think is the best?

Xenoblade Chronicles has a way waaayy better story than Xenogears. That said, there are plenty of games that have a better story than Xenogears. Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, Shadow Hearts Covenant, Skies of Arcadia, and so many more.

I think Xenoblade presented the story better with the top notch quality cutscenes and the famous quotes from Reyn, and didn't have the disc 2 problem, but I think Xenogears is better written.

Edit: Simply I like the story of Xenoblade better, but I think Xenogears has the best story in terms of depth.

I think Xenogears has the most deep and complex (in a good way) story of any videogame I've ever played, so I will have to say yes.

Nah. It never released in EU which kinda rubs salt on the wound. I tend to hate games that discriminate geographical locations.
