The Groom – Outlast: Whistleblower


Ugh, this guy again.

Outlast is a great horror game that showed me things I’m not likely to forget anytime soon, but its Whistleblower expansion took everything that made it so special and improved it. Its final act managed the impressive feat of exposing players to some of the most disgusting and depraved scenes of any horror game, and it was all led by a bright-eyed sociopath called The Groom.

The Groom waits for his victims to come to him, much like a spider, waiting until the moment where escape is no longer an option before he makes his move. By the time we meet him, evidence of his past works is everywhere, including a psychologically scarring scene that involves a patchwork of corpses with body parts in all the wrong places.

As his name implies, the Groom is simply seeking his other half, and since Mount Massive seems to be entirely bereft of female patients, the only way he can get such a thing is by using the resource he has at his disposal — namely, you — and surgically transforming them into the perfect wife.

At least the atrocious acts he commits are based off love. Granted, it’s his own abstract and super f**ked up take on what love is, but at least it’s not entirely based on pleasure (though I’m sure he gets plenty of that, too).

  • why this site is not accessible in Brazil?

  • Jason L.

    You’re forgetting Albert Wesker.

    • Wesker’s a sociopath, there’s no denying that, but take away the deaths he’s indirectly caused by being a gargantuan dickhead and how many murders are we actually left with? He’s more the type who would employ a serial killer to do his bidding, rather than do anything that might get his hands dirty.

      • Jason L.

        Fuck it.

      • Fantasma George

        Well what about Jules Merit from Syndicate 2012? All the agents are remorseless murder machines, true, but he’s the only one that gets filed as a sociopath even by his own company. Consider the fact that all the agents dole out bullets personally, and all the moments you share with him early in the game casually just shooting people in the face even when it wasn’t completely necessary.

  • Chance LeBoeuf

    Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, Jacket from Hotline Miami, and I guess the Joker counts right? That’s video game killers I can think of on the top of my head not mentioned here.

    What about Ruvik from “The Evil Within”?

  • Brodequin

    Hell yeah! Serial Killer X…

  • LordAlaster


  • What about the characters from Bioshock? Like Sander Cohen for example. Link:

  • Fantasma George

    You picked Walter Sullivan over Adachi?!

  • ThunderDragoon

    So happy to see the Origami Killer and The Groom on here. 😀

  • John

    Would Pyramidhead from Silent Hill series count??

  • Captain Underpants

    Glad to see Manhunt get some love. Definitely my favorite stalk n kill game. Which brings me to my nominee: Agent 47

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Kudos for going with the Origami Killer from Heavy Rain. Great story. Great game.

    • KSE1977

      I agree with you up to the point of finding out who the killer was. Why they would go to such lengths only to get cheap and kind of cheat with the character revealed as the killer is rather unbearable for me.

  • Guest

    Would Ruvik from Evil Within qualify as a serial killer?

  • Henry Marden

    Good list.

    Re: Heavy Rain: Shaun was taken from a park. Jason was the son in the mall who got hit by the car outside the mall.
