“HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT FOR YOU. HATE. HATE.”
I would just read it first, the play the game. Also Ellsion has a really enthusiastic read of the story if you can find it.
I actually have have the audio reading, Maybe ill upload it sometime for the game's community page
But hatred is edgy, and it exists only for that reason. To be grimdark in-your-face edgy. It's garbage, and I'm glad that Steam declined that skinhead-produced fedora-tipping simulator sack of shit.
This guy gets it. The Drakengard series as a whole is pretty fucking depressing but Nier in particular takes the first place.
Just finished this for the first time ever last night. What an absolutely incredible experience it was
much better than the book but that should come as no surprise seeing as it was just expanded upon by Ellison himself
I was thinking about this story the other day /v/
Is the super computer what the title is actually about? I know the main character by the end of the story literally has no mouth to scream from. But the computer is the thing trapped, unable to do literally anything to itself. It'd be like if a parapelgic person were kept alive for forever. The brain works, one can think, but the computer can't move on its own, can't end it's own life, anything like that. It has control over conditions that affect others but not over what affects itself.
Anyway I love the story, never played the game tho.
SMT IV was my first SMT. I didn't think the White ending would actually be an ending.
On my second playthrough I played Law. Isabeau killing herself so I wouldn't have to kind of fucked me up, and then Lucifer's voice change after killing him caught me off guard. Definitely going to play more SMT games.
there are many endings. play them.
from the sound of what you're saying about AM it hardly even seems like you finished the game at all seeing as it goes over that many many times.
The Void. russia devs are fucking masters at creating a super fucked up world that's depressing to even look at
This and also Cat Lady I guess
Although the second one is more of a PSA against depression if anything
Silent Hill 1-4
Shadow of the Colossus
I've also heard Terranigma is but I haven't played it yet
MGSV also has the potential to be depressing
also best Metaphysical Waifu Simulator to this day
If only it wasn't so fucking hard
>born into a post apocalyptic world where the only person you've ever known, your grandfather, has just died
>spend the game wandering a desolate Japan looking for people
>only thing you find are ghosts, monsters, and cats
>finally find a girl who runs away from you
>spend the whole game chasing her only to find out she's a humanoid weapon designed to finish off the remnants of humanity
>rescue her and escape together
she dies in the end and you die alone
that whole coffin episode was kinda genius honestly
The one where you are in the coffin and the voices tell you to shoot the person who is digging you up
I panicked and pulled the trigger and then had to play a whole section of the game as the girl who eventually opens that coffin knowing what will happen and knowing that this is my fault
EXTREMELY depressing. Particularly if you bother to read through all of the diaries, fanatical cultist ramblings, medical procedures documentation and the "patients"' past records. I found the idea of the nearly-dead alien planet, extinct alien civilization and human experimentation really dark and disheartening. There's not much comfort in this game.
...Especially not with those controls.
Ringrunner. Might not seem that way at first, but-you'll make a friend, then bad things happen. And then it keeps happening, over and over again, and you can't save all these people you care about...
Does this get any better? I completed the hysterical lady's side and failed monkey guy's twice and it hasn't really gripped me. Having an almighty computer god sounding like a texan doesn't help either.
a friend of mine told me it's a really good adventure game. The puzzles are not very hard, in case that's what you're into, but the atmosphere is perfect, it really gets to you.
Garage: Bad Dream Adventure.
Pretty disturbing and bizarre too.
The Last of Us. It hit me really hard during a few parts and I had to take breaks after certain parts because of the emotional distress.
Haven't played it myself, that's just what my friend told me. Didn't ask him about any jumpscares because I didn't know it was a horror themed game, hell, I didn't even know this game existed before he told me about it.
Call of Cthulhu
Im not some SJW lunatic. I just think hatred looks retarded and like most of the vidya community, filled with neckbearded faggots who are angsty about injustices in vidya. grow up
>people keep trying to turn this thread about video games into a hatred thread.
>People still don't understand the point of the first Postal
The door is right over there. I could leave at any time, I choose to stay, but why?
also spec op's the line
Personally, I thought Corpse Party to be extremely depressing.
Just imagine you wake up in this school, tortured souls all around you, doomed to stay there forever. You just vanish. Leaving nothing but a grieving family behind, a case to never be closed until they forget. What's left behind is just you in your personal hell
