Top 10 Darkest Nintendo and Sega Games


The Top Ten

1 Mother 3

This game is mostly depressing, but yes it is very dark. The chimeras were creepy, the brainwashing was scary but the most dark thing about this game is Porky.

A story full of death and tragedy from the get go

Agree with this 100% - shawnmccaul22

2 Radiation's Halloween Hack

Dimentio,One Of The Man(Count Bleck's Minions) Has his own plot,and KILLS Mario and co. He sends Mario,Luigi,and Bowser to the Underwhere,which is basically video game HELL, Peach goes to the Overthere,which is basically Video game Heaven. However,the Pure heart they needed there is actually Luvbi,one of the people they were traveling with. If they took the pure heart,she would cease to exist. Count Bleck Destroys Sammers Kingdom Using The Chaos Heart. Dimentio Betrays Count Bleck,Merges With Luigi and The Chaos Heart,and Nearly Destroys Everything. He would have won if Tippi hadn't showed up with the Pure Hearts,Making Super Dimentio ...more
