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. --- http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/615804-the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/64170892 PSN, Steam ID: F33R_K1LL5 | http://i.minus.com/ibgMA0LFIXHWnz.gif
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. --- http://tinyurl.com/myofwa4 - Played Mystical Ninja 64? Click this. The only games I want in the near future: Dark Souls II, Bravely Default, Fallout 4
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. --- PSN: mtllica / GT: CapraDaemon / SteamID: falloutnut Now Playing: Thief, ACIV, Killzone: Shadow Fall, AC1
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. Planescape Silent Hill Vampires the Masquerade --- Yeeaah...Somebody must've killed Darryl. Cuz that's what the guy had said.

I've heard the sequels got a bit more comical.) --- Now Playing: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (3DS) - Deception III (PSX) - Earth Defense Force 2025 (360) - Star Wars: Battlefront (Xbox)
