Demons are a dime a dozen in video games, whether it’s as terrifying foes or mysterious allies. But how many times have you had to the opportunity to play as a demon, unleashing those demonic powers for yourself?

The Darkness – Jackie Estacado
Jackie Estacado seems to be your average, run of the mill gangster. That is, until he’s possessed by The Darkness, an ancient malevolent entity that wreaks havoc and rips people apart, among other things. The Darkness has inhabited Jackie’s family line for generations and wars with him for control. While considered a demon in the games, the comic books reveal The Darkness to be the embodiment of chaos and evil, the void before the light and other such discomforting terms.
