What is the darkest game universe ever created?

I'm surprised no one's mentioned any of the Amnesia games yet. The Dark Descent had some really gruesome torture scenes and areas in it in addition to just being really dark and creepy... Justine was similar, but A Machine for Pigs was extremely depressing, and hands down one of the most disturbing games I've experienced.

Dark Souls, because it feels like the end of the end of the end of any given high fantasy world. Everyone and everything is dead and the world is overrun with demons.

Close choice for me was The Elder Scrolls universe, especially Oblivion. I would always get this feeling of extreme dread and anxiety whenever I noticed the sky turning red and came upon an Oblivion gate.

Also, Vagrant Story.

Man, all of the posts about Warhammer 40k make me want to pick up a few of the books sometime.

As for games I've played, I would say Dark Souls. There is absolutely no hope or joy in its universe.

i'd say pokemon.

A world where slavery and warfare is rampant, where criminal organization are everywhere. A world where people live their days in fear of having their house burned down or blasted away by wandering monsters, or just kids playing pranks. That and rats in that world are humongus, you've seen ratata? I'd be too scared to leave my house if I was anywhere near those thing.

Oh, and a world where ghost are CLEARLY able to affect the living. Everything over there is hanging by a thread, a massive civil war could happen at any time.

Fallout...thought with FNV things are kinda looking up with the whole NCR kinda reforming a for-real modern civilization again.
Silent Hill
Vampires the Masquerade
Yeeaah...Somebody must've killed Darryl. Cuz that's what the guy had said.

Don't know if it's the darkest, but Dead Space has yet to be mentioned. C'mon, the name alone evokes a feeling of dread.

Souls series
Deception series
Clock Tower series
Drakengard series
Shin Megami Tensei (the main series and most of the non-Persona spinoffs)
Shadow Hearts (The original one at least. I've heard the sequels got a bit more comical.)
