It is time, once more, to pay tribute to the fine art of cosplay and the people who make it their life's work to recreate the looks of their favorite characters. In this installment of Greatest Game Cosplay Ever, we'll explore some of the most famous characters from gaming's darkest games. You'll see the horrors of a post-apocalyptic infection, a devlish protagonist and a soldier who's only known battle. But there are some other costumes that aren't so dark and will definitely spark your imagination. Check them all out below!
