What are some of the most depressing video games?

Phantom Brave.

The ones with the biggest hype.

>>276028803
I really hate that game

The short story is much more depressing.

I was kind of disappointed with how goofy and silly the game is
>>
>>276029512
The game scenarios are so short you never really feel for the characters.

Massively overrated.

ive just finished the first chapter, playing as gorrister. Should i ditch the game and just read the short story instead?
>>
>>276029961
The game expounds upon the short story. And it's canon, because Harlan Ellison helped produce the game's stories and he narrated AM
>>
>>276029961
Read the story then come back to the game.
>>
>>276029961
i really liked the game
don't expect good ending without a walkthrough or autism
>>
honestly Dark Souls

I understand that that's what they're going for but it didn't make me want to play the game
>>
spec ops : the line

probably not what you mean but ~MGS3 is pretty depressing

2 sure. 1 is basically Hatred but shittier and from the 90's.

>>276029304

“HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.”

Anything with "Shin Megami Tensei" in the title.
Mother 3.
Megaman Zero series.

I would just read it first, the play the game. Also Ellsion has a really enthusiastic read of the story if you can find it.

I actually have have the audio reading, Maybe ill upload it sometime for the game's community page
>>
Pathologic and The Void,
no contest
>>
>>276030959
But hatred is edgy, and it exists only for that reason. To be grimdark in-your-face edgy. It's garbage, and I'm glad that Steam declined that skinhead-produced fedora-tipping simulator sack of shit.

This guy gets it. The Drakengard series as a whole is pretty fucking depressing but Nier in particular takes the first place.

It's still coming out, I know. But not on Steam. Good for them for turning down that /b/ simulator.

Gabe personally put it back on Steam.

Just finished this for the first time ever last night. What an absolutely incredible experience it was

much better than the book but that should come as no surprise seeing as it was just expanded upon by Ellison himself
>>
>>276035693
Holy shit. Why?
>>
>>276035670
The more complex they tried to make it (i.e. going through the different stages) the more empty it felt.
>>
I was thinking about this story the other day /v/
Is the super computer what the title is actually about? I know the main character by the end of the story literally has no mouth to scream from. But the computer is the thing trapped, unable to do literally anything to itself. It'd be like if a parapelgic person were kept alive for forever. The brain works, one can think, but the computer can't move on its own, can't end it's own life, anything like that. It has control over conditions that affect others but not over what affects itself.
Anyway I love the story, never played the game tho.
>>
>>276031943
SMT IV was my first SMT. I didn't think the White ending would actually be an ending.
On my second playthrough I played Law. Isabeau killing herself so I wouldn't have to kind of fucked me up, and then Lucifer's voice change after killing him caught me off guard. Definitely going to play more SMT games.
>>
>>276036590
there are many endings. play them.

from the sound of what you're saying about AM it hardly even seems like you finished the game at all seeing as it goes over that many many times.

Persona 3
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon
SMT I and IV

that whole coffin episode was kinda genius honestly

The one where you are in the coffin and the voices tell you to shoot the person who is digging you up
I panicked and pulled the trigger and then had to play a whole section of the game as the girl who eventually opens that coffin knowing what will happen and knowing that this is my fault

EXTREMELY depressing. Particularly if you bother to read through all of the diaries, fanatical cultist ramblings, medical procedures documentation and the "patients"' past records. I found the idea of the nearly-dead alien planet, extinct alien civilization and human experimentation really dark and disheartening. There's not much comfort in this game.


...Especially not with those controls.

Ringrunner. Might not seem that way at first, but-you'll make a friend, then bad things happen. And then it keeps happening, over and over again, and you can't save all these people you care about...

Does this get any better? I completed the hysterical lady's side and failed monkey guy's twice and it hasn't really gripped me. Having an almighty computer god sounding like a texan doesn't help either.

a friend of mine told me it's a really good adventure game. The puzzles are not very hard, in case that's what you're into, but the atmosphere is perfect, it really gets to you.

Almost everything you just said describes postal 1. Also the devs aren't skinheads or nazis like your tumblr overlords want you to believe.

Personally, I thought Corpse Party to be extremely depressing.

Just imagine you wake up in this school, tortured souls all around you, doomed to stay there forever. You just vanish. Leaving nothing but a grieving family behind, a case to never be closed until they forget. What's left behind is just you in your personal hell
