What is the most depressing game you've ever played?
Hardmode: No Lisa or Yume Nikki
I'm playing LISA right now, is there a major penalty to my guys getting knocked out? Can they only come back at a bonfire?I fucked up early on, didn't pick up bottles. Got rocked but I want to know if it's ok?
>Tells the story of a young woman who involuntarily becomes the vessel of an evil and ancient god.
>An old man gets infected with a parasitic virus and becomes a human guinea pig, eventually mutating into an eldritch abomination and being thrown in the garbage.
>Gets turned into a glorified card game.
that is pretty depressing.
then again i never played the 3rd one so who am i to judge
If they get knocked out you can use a perfume to bring them back. The only real penalty is not being able to use them in battle. Just be warned though, some enemies can permanently kill your party members.
Ep 3 is pretty good. It takes place a few years after the events of Ep 1. The Pioneer 2 is still orbiting the planet because the planet is simply not inhabitable anymore because of all the shit that happened in Ep 1 but it doesn't have the resources to make another decades-long trip back to homeworld. So everyone is stuck there and there's a lot of really terrible political shit going on. So a group of dissenters leave the Pioneer 2 and start working against the government and the game's plot revolves around the fight between them and the hunters hired by the government to try to stop them. And really horrible shit happens to them constantly.
Gonna second Undertale Genocide run
I had such a strange experience with Yume Nikki, for the most part it wasn't really depressing to me, but I hadn't really explored too much, but then I wander into the e-man room in the mall and was hit by https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwjOI6riH5s
Something about that fucking song just killed my mood for the entire day, it speaks volumes to me and I don't hear anyone talk about it,
Besides Lisa and Yume Nikki though, my personal depressing game would probably be Majora's Mask. I know it's a huge meme that "lol MM the darkest game ever" but honestly some of that shit just hits you like a ton of bricks, like Cremia getting Romani drunk so she's not afraid when the moon lands, or the Dojo guy putting up this calm demeanor, but is seen cowering and saying "I don't want to die" when the final countdown starts. Not to mention the whole impersonating these dead heroes, I don't wanna spoil it, but I think the story behind the Deku Mask was the saddest. Say what you will about Majora's Mask, but you gotta say the tone of the game was fucking great.
That fucking ending ;___;
