Top 10 Surprisingly Dark Video Games


The Top Ten

1 Conker's Bad Fur Day
2 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
3 Mother 3
4 Super Paper Mario

A dark game with a beauty all its own. But even in the darkest night, one can find light. - Synchronocity

And this is one major reason why I, The Ultimate Daredevil (aka Kieran Glen Harris Stark) used to bash Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door/Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time's successors (I give these games a fairly positive reception these days) in favor of Super Paper Mario/the original Paper Mario/Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story's predecessors (I would give all these underrated classics a near-perfect reception).

5 Super Smash Bros. Melee

I think Brawl is darker. Crazy Hand being CONTROLLED LIKA A PUPPET BECAUSE HE WAS AUTISTIC!

6 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
7 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

I think that the most darkest part was the haunted and creepy music Hyrule Castle on the way to battle Ganondorf. But that’s why I enjoy it.

8 Borderlands 2
9 Undertale
10 Earthbound

Giygas take me forever than 80 hours... and this is the scariest of my childhood trauma...

That Gygias battle...
