What is the darkest game universe ever created?
Telltales Walking Dead
Shocked to have only seen Deception mentioned once.
It's a pretty obscure series, unfortunately. New one looks great, though. I'm hyped for it.
No mention of Nier? Wow...
Eh, I lump Nier in with the Drakengard series.

Drakengard. It's got it all.
It's a toss up between Drakengard, Warhammer 40K, and I have no Mouth.
Out of all of it though Warhammer 40k isn't set in an alternate universe. The Lore of it includes us.
At least Kefka managed to rearrange the very planet and kill millions of people!Good for him!

Since most the games I would have mentioned are already in this topic, I'm gonna throw out an oddball one.
Yeah, yeah, childish, cutesy visuals and such. But a lot of the bad guys are like, extreme. I'm only in chapter 3, and so far I've encountered

Cosmic horror (i assume you mean Chaos, the Warp and perhaps the Star Gods) is only a fraction of the f***ed up stuff humanity has to face.
For that matter, humanity itself is just as likely to kill you as anything else.
The only reason anyone manages to kick ass, much less stay alive more than a few weeks in the 40K universe is because "Everyone dies." makes for pretty poor set of rules for a tabletop game.

I like how the answer being given by most is the one that started as a PARODY of overly dark universes.
Also how is Planescape the darkest? I mean if your ONLY exposure is Planescape:Torment I guess I could see it, but outside of it it isn't that dark. Ravenloft on the other hand is quite literally the plane of dread. Like, the plane of fire is just that, a realm of fire and fire related things, Ravenloft is a realm made to **** you up and is essentially hell for its rulers.
I always thought Half-life had a pretty depressing/dark universe, especially the opening of HL2 when you start in the slums of city 17.
Definitely half life 2, because it's the closest thing to a glimpse of our actual future.

It's a boy trying to kill his mother. How could it be more dark?
