ITT: games that do "Edgy" right.
I actually can't name any, but I'm hoping for some semi-serious answers and know /v/ kind of likes .hack//.

>grows up over the length of the series
Yeah, maybe for the first game but I recall him mellowing out pretty fast considering his girl friend fell into a coma and his best friend was more than likely responsible for it.
I know a lot of people consider Vergil as edgy done right but he's just arrogant and backs it up with his actions and some class.
What does it mean??
Mass Effect (Renegade morality specifically)
Spec Ops: The Line
Binding of Isaac
All of them contain themes and events that would ordinarily be cringeworthy and eye-rolling, but they manage to convey them in ways that make you analyze what's behind the actions/events and understand them from a character's point of view.
Too bad Prototype 2 shit on that.

Just a personal opinion, but I always ended up avoiding Legion in NV due to their edgyness until playing through the DLC, HH and LR in particular. I actually took a liking to them (though I obviously don't agree with them) due to some characters providing backstory and reasons for why Legion is the way it is.
Vanilla makes them look so much just cartoonish raiders in football armor while they're originally a collection of quite literal oogabooga tribes fighting with sticks and Caesar unifying / educating them under his rule is actually very reasonable when considering their historical context. You can even inform Arcade of that if you have high enough INT. I really wish the game would have had more tribal shit a la HH to flesh them out more.
It doesn't get edgier and better than this
And they are still shit games
They are my favorite shit games ever
