Video games can provide a range of experiences and if modern triple-A titles are anything to go by, a singular playthrough can become quite long. However, what if you encountered a game that removed all your save data, either under specific circumstances or for fun? What about games that simply deleted themselves entirely? Would you still have that experience, if only in your memories? Let’s take a look at 14 such games here.

Doki Doki Literature Club

Unless you’re looking for some real nightmare fuel, Doki Doki Literature Club probably isn’t the best game to hop into. Charmingly disarming at first, the game quickly degenerates into a meta horror fest. We won’t spoil how but by the end, the game will delete almost all of its files, requiring a reinstall to play it again. If you delete the “firstrun” file though and select “Yes” when restarting the game, then you can do it all over again. Just Monika. All over again.
