Video Games with Most Mature and Dark Story


The Top Ten

1 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

This game got ruined by clunky combat - TriggerTrashKid

Amazing game with a fantastic story, the main story's length is roughly 40 hours and the quality still remains. it's like the game of thrones of video games - yolo264


2 Red Dead Redemption

Should be at the top. - TriggerTrashKid

Rockstar really knows how to make a great protagonist, john marston was great and that ending - yolo264

3 Grand Theft Auto IV

When people play Grand Theft Auto they most often forget about the story missions, this Grand Theft Auto had the best story, it was very serious but it still had the humor of previous GTAs and NIKO BELLIC is amazing! - yolo264

The story of every Grand Theft Auto is usually overlooked because of the fun gameplay, but this game's story was amazing and best in the series. it was serious but it still had the humour of the previous GTAs, but it becomes really great because of NIKO BELLIC, he is one of the best protagonists ever - yolo264

4 Bioshock

The story is very original and with a great twist - yolo264

5 The Walking Dead

The most emotional ending ever in a video game - yolo264

6 The Last of Us

The chemistry between ellie and joel is fantastic and it has some of the most realistic and in-depth characters in a video game - yolo264

7 Silent Hill 2

Three murderers. Zero villains. How do you deal with physical and emotional abuse? What does it take to move past it? These are the questions the characters in this game are forced to answer.

Great locations and music and a bit of neo-noir, really feels like an action movie - yolo264
