Honorable Mentions: Raincoat Killer, Jigsaw
Deadly Premonition was a weird game, no? It was equal parts strange, scary and a little bit unfinished, but in a weirdly endearing way. With its Twin Peaks vibes and a suitably creepy serial killer antagonist, this game came close to getting a spot on this list, even if it didn’t quite make it.
Jigsaw enjoyed a decent run with the first Saw game, before Flesh & Blood tried its best to ruin everything. He’s technically not a serial killer, since he leaves the killing to his victims. He’s still a huge jerk who delights in seeing people survive their own personal Hells, which he so intricately designs, and for that, he deserves a mention.
