    Default Recommend games like Undertale and Doki Doki Literature Club.

    I unfortunately didn't play Undertale and DDLC when it was popular, and I just found out how stellar those games are. Also, I only watched gameplay so my experience is spoiled as well. What other games are like them? What "fad" games are there that are actually good? I kinda want horror/psychological horror, and indie, but none/minimal jumpscares, because I'm too scared of them. Jumpscares don't keep me up at night, shock does (i think)

    also how do i convince my friend to play DDLC

    Toby Fox has made a (somewhat) sequel to Undertale named Deltarune. He's working on the 2nd part as of now, though at this point you probably have finished it.

    Not sure what you mean by "fad" games though to be honest, since there are barely any good ones. However, if I were you I would stay far away from that god awful KFC VN. As far as I've heard, it's an insult to what VNs are built upon as a genre.

    Give "Crypt of the Necrodancer" a try. It's extremely fun. It's pretty much a roguelike rhythm game.

    Uhh I guess. I don't care about the fandoms as much I do for the quality of games.

    I read these suggestions and they interest me a bit.

    If you can use emulators, I highly recommend Earthbound, Mother 3, and if you can stand 1980s JRPGs, Mother 1. (I can send you some of the stuff.)

    In addition, if you want a challenging rom hack. The Earthbound Halloween hack is also made by Toby Fox.

    What do Undertale and DDLC have anything in common other than the fact that both were very popular? By that logic, you could group them with games such as Minecraft, Fortnite, Five Nights at Freddy's, Skyrim, etc just because they were/are really popular.

    As for indie horror games with minimal/no jumpscares, I can't really think of many, but perhaps Pony Island might be up your alley. It's a quite short game, but I think it fits what you described pretty well. Amnesia might possibly suit you, it was quite popular at some point, but I can't guarantee if there's jumpscares or not since I've never played it myself.

    It's never too late to play a game you want to play, just because it's no longer popular doesn't make it no longer good. That being said, DDLC never was a good game to begin with and was just bait to scare horny perverts.

    They're both 'meta' games - they both interact with the player directly. But yeah, they're also both really popular and have bad fandoms lol.

    ---

    As recommended above, Pony Island does this. I can't really think of other similar games but I've heard OneShot and The Stanley Parable do similar things.

    Baba is You is also kind of similar to a meta game but it's more of a puzzle game.

    Out of the ones I've mentioned, Pony Island is the closest you'll get to meta horror game, although it is significantly less horror than DDLC.

    There are a few other games like this but I can't think of them on the spot. Try searching around for meta games. I've linked some useful Reddit posts:

    It's not really a "fad game", but if you're looking for a psychological horror game with minimal jumpscares and an excellent story (seriously, it's the best story I've ever seen in a game), try SOMA. It's by the same people who made Amnesia, but it's less scary and there are way less chase sections. I seriously can't recommend it enough.

    Ah yes, as far as meta games go, Stanley Parable is probably one of the best. As for OneShot, I've yet to try it myself, but it also seems like a really neat game.

    So you wanted games that have good stories eh?
    I got lots of it.

    OneShot
    Ori and the Blind Forest
    Final Fantasy VII (The story itself is interesting in my opinion.)

    Since I am having exams soon I cant tell you all yet.

    I am not really sure what those games are linked by, but if you want games with an immersive experience like those, I might be able to provide one.

    Yume Nikki is an RPG that is incredibly abstract. It lacks the obnoxious fanbases the other two games listed have (to be honest, the community has been inventive and has created good fan-made renditions), but I think that is not the worst thing to omit. The gameplay is not something I should say much about…it is one of those games you would be better off going blind into to get the best experience.

    I probably have tons more, but I have a class in five minutes. I might get back to you.

    If you're looking for a game to play, I could make some really good suggestions. I just need to know what kind of game you want to play - a shooter, RTS, RPG, etc. If you want one like Undertale, try "Breath of Death VII" or "Cthulhu Saves the World." They're hilarious & not overly long to beat, plus very inexpensive.

    Doki Doki Literature Club is a whole other beast. I don't think I could compare much to it, other than other psychological thrillers.

    Toby Fox also made the music for Game Freak's new IP Little Town Hero. He a pretty cool d00d.

    Necrodancer is soooo amazing!!! I've never been able to beat it all in one run, but roguelikes are my absolute favorite types of games. Cadence of Hyrule was a blessing - I'm really glad Nintendo picked it up.
