Every fighting game, ever
If there's one video game genre that doesn't
require a plot, it's the one-on-one fighter. They're about people punching each other -- further explanation is fairly unnecessary. And yet, the majority of these games are steeped in intricate backstory, covering everything from the characters' motivations to their favourite foods and blood type. Usually, the mythologies and ongoing narratives are so exhaustive they could fill a book -- when all we really want to do is punch each other.
