What is the most depressing video game you ever played?
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.
I get a 6-pack and plop down on my computer looking through my steam library. I end up binging on beer and passing out in the chair with nothing played or actually done except masturbating to feet.
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
>except masturbating to feet
You've got a pretty good taste though.
>too many games to choose from
Should have got a PS4.
Guild Wars 2
something inside me died when I realized what they had done
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.
I'm still mad , I will always be mad as this guy from mass effect post
for you anon
I don't care if I'm risking a ban. I completely understand where you're coming from.
as for me, I don't know why but visual novels really get the best from me. so I would say kara no shoujo
either yume nikki or postal 1
they took a heavily team- and buildcrafting- focussed game (Guild Wars) and turned it into a casual solo themepark MMO with F2P-tier monetisation and sjw-infested fanfic-tier story
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.
>passing out with a 6pack
>masturbating to feet
i stand corrected, nice taste
i couldn't get past the first 5 mins because it kept reminding me of all the online relationships i had as a teen and how unfulfilling they were
The ending of Persona 3 plus
Shinjiro's "Alright, let's do this!"pulled at my heartstrings but I don't think I've been significantly affected by a game in my adulthood. The use of your actual name in Earthbound fucked me up as a kid but that's about it.
s' teaser game P.T.
No wonder there's so many master ricers on /v/.
You guys need your own board so your shitposting can be contained and kept away from people that actually play vidya.
In terms of disappointment, GW2.
In terms of actual story for a game, Nier.
>you only buy enough to get you decently drunk
>once it's done you're drunk enough to the point where you think it's a great idea to go buy twice as much and your drunk self can't be reasoned with
>wake up on the floor with pissed pants
God fucking damn it don't make me go play this game again for the 7th time anon
It's vampire the masquerade: bloodlines you dummy
The Void. It was kind of odd because I wasn't even having that much fun with the game, but I needed to complete it just on the hope that there would be happy ending, it was too depressing to just leave it at any other point.
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.
just thinking about what happened to Mechwarrior Online hurts me deep in my soul.
If you are Malkavian you can even impersonate Paul
Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
The game's story itself is depressing, the gameplay is depressingly shitty, and the realization that there wouldn't be any more BoF games completed the rule of three.
Whatever i'm playing when the adderall starts wearing off.
why even do that ?
Why is it in the game actually ? It doesn't give you anything, it's just fake content... It makes you think htere's more to the game, but really, there isn't...
Velen was alright with the question marks, it was just something to do on the way to your destination or something to do on the side. Skellige went overboard with all the stuff in the water.
Hearts of Stone was pretty depressing
You can go all the way to save this dude and get his emotions back just for him to get hit by the loss of what he did and hes probably going to an hero
>I wish they eased back on the shooting gallery segments...
They're stupid and don't fit the themes of the game at all.
>resources are scarce, every shot counts
>oh you're hanging upside down? unlimited revolver ammo
they also could have used more monster types, and I wish the friendly AI wasn't so damn retarded. The best parts of the game are where Joel is alone, like in the Pittsburgh elevator shaft.
Kara no Shoujo
It's a horror/mystery VN where things just continually go from bad to worse before the story finally ends in a very bleak manner.
Clannad is certainly sad and tragic, but I wouldn't call it depressing. Despite all of the shit that the characters go through, it always feels like things end on a bittersweet but optimistic note.
If I remember corrrectly there's even an e-mail where the girl sounds super happy that she had an actual date with someone nice for once and she contemplated giving up whoring for him.
I wouldn't be so mad if gw 1 wouldn't be so good compared to this trash
that bad ending where you dont save your buddy wife.....
nigga......i just wanted a simple mystery not a soul damagin Story
>you will never save best girl
0/10 shit game I'm not crying you're crying
tfw tried my hardest to get the true end of both first and second game for Toko and all I get is a crippling feeling of emptiness inside
>Tfw restarted the game several times before realising that
I couldn't save Orihime no matter what I did
KnS in a nutshell.
Every ending is bad, even the "true ending". I played the VN just because I wanted a good horror story, I never asked to become a soulless husk by the time that I finished it.
>You will never be able to tell Toko the truth before it's too late
>You will never be able to save her
I can barely remember the story, but it had this crushing sense of hopelessness about it.
I also clearly remember that I wanted to strangle both of those cunty Menders with my bare hands, the guy especially.
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.
>Fell into this trap one Saturday
>Wound up with third degree burns on my forearm
>a game about a suicidal kid who is severaly abused and neglected by his mentally unstable mother
>entire game is literally an asphyxiation induced nightmare he has as he slowly suffocates inside a chest
