Oh shit. That's the worst. I've got an amazing Steam library, bought stuff dirt cheap from bundles. I find myself installing one or two games, promising myself I'll startup one of them when I get off from work.

That never happens.

Maybe Max Benis
I don't know if I would pick 2 or 3 though
2 was so bittersweet in the sense that I enjoyed the fuck out of it but it was such a short ride that ended too soon
3 was just all around depressing in the sense that it had absolutely no charm whatsoever and felt like not only had Max's life gotten fucked in the ass but his videogame had too

Chrono Trigger without a doubt.

At first it seems such a cheerful game. Then all of a sudden I'm being accused for kidnapping the princess and sentenced to death?! You just have to wait in the dungeon until guards come take you to the block.

All of my friends keep telling me how good game it is. Maybe I'm missing something. I've heard people say it's short and all, but I had no idea it's over in just a couple of hours.

MGS2 of course. After AI tells about his intentions. When i played it for the first time 12 years ago i was of course in disagreement with MGS2 AI points of view. But now after experiencing the massive popularization of internet and shit, getting older and seeing how easily people can be fooled and manipulated, how stupid they actually are, but how much power they have to ruin things at the same time. Now I'm in complete agreement with AI point of view. That is really fucking depressing.

Everybody's gone to the Rapture was pretty depressing recently but you guys wouldn't know because ps4 has nogames.

Gone Home also had a strangely depressing atmosphere but I think that's because I played it the night I broke up with my first gf ;_;

I played this game while suffering from some serious undiagnosed depression. Looking back, it probably contributed a lot to my depression. I know there are a lot of "darker" games out there, but the feeling of helplessness and loneliness in this game really hurts to remember.

I wasn't even playing the game for enjoyment. It was my second or third play through and I was just following a personal walkthrough guide I'd made. I wasn't an adventure, it was like a second job.

Doing all extra stuff that isn't quest chains in Witcher 3 is very depressing.

All the markers with the eyes+barrels require you to jump of your boat, swim around in a circle looting three chests with shit loot that's always the same.
90% of the time, the area is surrounded by enemies you can only fight with the slow af crossbow.

Also, half the quests are you finding a key and a note that leads you to a chest.

I totally recommend the main quest line and side quests though.

Persona 4

The game was a light hearted weaboo fantasy until the fight against Adachi. I pity him, he went insane because he lived in an almost perfect world (as long as you don't get involved in any demon/persona stuff) but his life was still shit. Comparing him to Yu who was perfect in everything and had a harem is just depressing.
