A new research shows that Dark Souls III, Mario Kart and Fall Guys are the most stressful video games that you can play right now.

The research was conducted by a team of sport analystis, gamers and BonusFinder, in order to discover which video games cause the most stressful experience to the players. According to the results, the players’ heart rate increases the most while playing Dark Souls, Mario Kart and Fall Guys. I understand the existence of Souls Series to the list, but it is really strange that a casual and funny Mario Kart game is in the top 3.

In this study, 14 players were picked to try 16 of the most popular games right now. In the same time they had their heart rate monitored by a team of professionals. The final result came from a comparison between the subject’s base BPM and the BPM while playing a specific game. More specifically, Dark Souls III caused player’s heart to reach approximately 130 BPM while the normal heart rate of a healthy adult is around 60-100 BPM.

Fall Guys was second on the list with a 95% BPM increase, while Mario Kart came third with a 73%. In the top 5 you can also see Street Fighter and Fifa Football. Of course the result is not very accurate because the samples and the games’ pool are very small. However, there is no objection that Dark Souls III is one of the most stressful games out there. For more information you can check the official graph below.
