10 Most Swearing-est Games

Conclusion: No amount of Hollywood voice talent could save Narc’s tired ass from the bargain bin. Yet, there’s a silky smooth single-malt scotch quality to the boorish phrases that spill from Michael Madsen and Bill Bellamy’s lips. Can we hear Madsen’s rakish, “You better calm your ass down, bitch,” one more time, please?


Conclusion: Generic gangbangers offend and titillate middle America with swearing, violence and misogyny. Or so it would seem. 187: Ride or Die never got as much attention as GTA because, well, the public chose Die over Ride. 


Conclusion: We’d be surprised if you didn’t drop more f-bombs than the titular heroes while wrestling with the wonky controls and craptacular gameplay. Kane & Lynch’s painful attempt to mimic Tarantino cool comes off as pathetic and desperate.


Conclusion: Kyle’s whiny swearing is thankfully relieved when the loutish Handsome Bob steps in and shows him how to spew vitriol like a real man. The ribald dialogue in Streetwise ensured the Final Fight franchise’s place in the pantheon of weird, wonderful over-the-top brawlers.

    Huh, I would have thought Conkor's Bad Fur Day would have made it on the list.

    Shadowthe Hedgehog shoulda been in there. It's not that the words were that bad, just unexpected and frequent (depending on how good you were at the game)

    BOO KANE & LYNCH! Eidos lost loads of respect for that one. They shouldn't have fired Jeff Gerstmann!
