If I had to choose my favorite genre of anime, it would most likely be the psychological genre. I enjoy observing the mind-games (and even partaking in some myself) that take place in this genre and witnessing the psychological toll it takes on characters. Most of all, I like to discern the mystery myself and delineate the plot before it's even been concluded. Albeit, many psychological anime have plot holes and are inherently flawed; however, anime of this sort (i.e. Mirai Nikki/The Future Diary, Dangan Ronpa, etc.) are still incredibly enjoyable to me. I can enjoy psychological anime of most any sort.

My favorite psychological anime would have to be-
-Serial Experiments Lain
-Higurashi no Naku Koro ni/Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai
-Death Note (Despite the major flaws in the plot after episode 25, I still enjoyed this anime and bought the entire boxed set.)
-Steins;Gate
- and (if you count it) Madoka Magica

What are your favorite psychological anime, and what would you reccomend?

Elfen Lied is one of my favorites. Future Diaries is another good one (but it was already mentioned)

Madoka Magica was one that didn't seem psychological till the end of the third episode, then it got dark, and in a hurry too.

Psycho Pass

Texhnolyze (I think it's by the same people who made 'Serial Experiments: Lain', and it's darker)
