I'm looking for a game that will have the similar weirdness, surreal narrative and visuals as all the wack-shit, mind-screwy anime I like: Evangelion, Lain, Serial Experiments Lain or Angel's Egg.
So what are some games that would fit this description. I heard that some of the Drakengard fit this description but I also heard that some of them have terrible game and even though I'm specifying what I'm looking for in terms of narrative and aesthetic in this thread, I don't want these to come at the expense of the aspect that defines this whole medium.
I haven't watched all of these, but they fit the description enougn
Most suda51 games are pretty weird, or have obtuse storytelling elements. He's does a lot of style over substance though.
Also if you don't want to play drakenguard you could always play nier, it's a budget title, that has mixed opinions, but I really enjoyed it, and it's similar to drakengaurd in a few ways.
Lastly Shadow of the Colossus and Journey are similar to angel's egg as both have rather unknown elements, and deal with growing in some way.
Also don't get snippy with people, no one is getting paid to answer your questions.

You're right. It's just that I wanted to point out that I wasn't asking for anime at all, but didn't exactly do it to subtely.
Thanks for the suggestions. I can't say I don't want to play Drakenguard. I just heard it has pretty bad gameplay and the title does have its years. Also, without spoilers would you mind telling a bit about how it's supposed to be surreal?
I can't, It's a fairly fucked up universe, and most of the "surreal" parts are twists. The game will largely feel like a semi-standard fantasy universe where everyone just happens to be insane for a while.
>mfw literally no one suggest the Gungrave game for ps2.
Yume Nikki is really off-putting and surreal. I would argue for a lot of RPG Maker games, such as Gingiva or OFF. Also, highly recommend Eversion. Midnight Station is pretty crazy too.
Earthbound is also a good game, although it's more comedic.
Hoped this helped OP.
