Games with unique music and/or weird story or just weird/unique in general?

I'm just looking for "weird" games (still need to be good obviously). An example is something like Hotline Miami or The Stanley Parable. I'm so burned out on all this derivative bulls*** that I've been playing. I want something that'll actually stick with me once I'm done with it. Scary games could work too, I guess.

I don't think this guy is sincere.

Alan Wake is what I would consider to be a good mix of weird and streamline. The game itself is a typical third person shooter, but kind of has that Silent Hill type of "average guy" gameplay mechanics, plus a great storyline. I like that it is broken down in episodes, it's like the X-Files or something. Feels like a good sci-fi mini-series on TV.

This would be the perfect recommendation if I hadn't already played the hell out of it and all its DLC/expansions.

I don't know if "To The Moon" is that weird, but it's a great game that I continue to think about often
