What is the darkest game universe ever created?

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter has a pretty dark setting. It's more atmospheric than "grimdark", but the entire game takes place in dingy, dimly-lit underground bunkers following an apocalypse, with ramshackle towns scattered here and there. Even the Game Over screen has you being ripped apart. Extreme departure from the previous games. The devs pulled some punches with some of the gorey content (game is rated T after all), but it's still pretty dire.

Very love/hate game, though. Perhaps even one of the most polarizing RPGs out there.

Just because no ones mentioned it yet I'll say Bioshock. Great atmosphere and feeling of dread

Vandal Hearts II: Heaven's Gate. Especially in the bad ending.

This game was basically doing "A Song of Ice and Fire's" plot back when A Clash of Kings was still brand new on the bookshelves.

There's a simple difference between a terrorist and a freedom fighter. Freedom fighters don't kill the people they claim to be fighting for.

I'd say Darksiders, because I haven't played too many extremely-edgy games.

You can't really get any grimdarker than Warhammer 40K.

There is, quite literally, no hope, no joy, and no happiness in that universe, at all.

I love Dragon Quarter.
