The Dark Humor tag refers to a specific type of humor that explores taboo, sensitive, or morbid subjects in a comedic manner. It involves making jokes or finding amusement in subjects that are usually considered serious, grim, or uncomfortable.

Dark humor often incorporates irony, satire, and absurdity to convey its comedic effect. It can be seen as a way to cope with dark or difficult topics by bringing levity and perspective to them. While it may not appeal to everyone's taste, those who enjoy dark humor appreciate its subversive nature and the unexpected juxtaposition of comedy with serious subject matter.

Examples of games that embrace dark humor include:

  • Postal 2 This game is known for its over-the-top violence and controversial content but also incorporates dark humor throughout its gameplay as players navigate absurd situations in an irreverent world.
  • The Stanley Parable This interactive narrative game uses dark humor to explore themes such as free will and agency by presenting players with humorous choices that challenge their expectations.
  • Fallout series (Fallout: New Vegas) These post-apocalyptic RPGs often employ dark humor through their satirical commentary on society's follies before and after the nuclear war. They present a grim world while injecting moments of wit and sarcasm.
  • Saints Row IV This open-world action-adventure game infuses over-the-top violence with over-the-top comedy where players engage in outrageous missions filled with quirky characters, resulting in humorous situations throughout the game experience.
  • Papers Please While primarily a serious bureaucratic simulation game set in a dystopian world, Papers Please incorporates dark humor through its satirical portrayal of a border checkpoint and the absurd situations faced by players.
