Nintendo has been synonymous with family-friendly fun, brought to us by characters we all know and love, for decades.

The Switch is a great example of this ethos, being home to the latest iterations of all its famous franchises, as well as offering lovingly curated versions of their classic legacy titles and promoting couch co-op play.

We all know Mario and Luigi. We all know Link and Zelda, but much like Hyrule itself, Nintendo does have a hidden dark side. The Switch is - somewhat inexplicably - a great system for some truly dark, macabre, twisted, or just plain weird games you have probably never heard of.

On booting up the Switch eShop, the sheer number of available games can be a daunting sight to behold, especially to the casual Bowser, sorry, browser who may not have a particular title or genre in mind, and the "Genre" option offers only vague, all-encompassing headers like "Fighting", "Educational", and "Strategy".

Looking for something more edgy or more bizarre?

In the mood for some gore, or perhaps some psychological torment?

We've got your back.

Here are ten sinister, unnerving, and downright messed up Switch games you won't believe exist.
