The decade of history of EVE Online is unique. It has its heroes, scoundrels, heists and intrigue. Unlike other games, those are not stories written by developers and acted out by NPCs. They are true stories about the actions of the players that inhabit this world.
Go to this site and read some stories. This game has always amazed me with the news it generates through the stories it has produced throughout the years. I find games like this very complicated. The stories do read like a novel or possible screenplay.
