What is the darkest game universe ever created?

Not to be understood as in being dark so you cant see much, but the darkest game universe, in its feeling of dread, hopelessness and perhaps brutalness! Well?

Infamous is pretty dark.

Warhammer 40k. It's the origin of "grimdark".

By that definition I'd have to go with dark souls, it does a great job portraying that feeling of hopelessness and dread.

Maybe the original Legacy of Kain, before it got silly in the later games.

I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream
Harvester
Planescape: Torment
System Shock 2
Silent Hill 1-3

After that I'd think you'd be hard pressed to find anything quite as bleak in gaming.

Warhammer 40k probably. All they do is fight there.

Going to have to agree with Warhammer 40k.

I don't think anything can top the brutal nature of the Wahammer 40k universe.
