    Where is Outlast from this list?!!

    Has the Demoman from TF2 and his slew of head cutting weaponry been forgotten? Well, even without him, this article is still very interesting

    I'd have to give a couple of shout outs. #1: Soldier of Fortune (2000), where a properly placed Desert Eagle shot can leave a chunk of the skull missing, before complete decapitation (see: ).

    Yorick from Castlevania SOTN....even though he was ALREADY headless....

    i feel like gears needs a nod for the sheer volume of decapitation occurring at any given second ha

    Why was sub-zero from the orginal MK missed out? That's the grandaddy of Decapitations

    There's a decapitation in Skyrim, it's one of the werewolves final moves. There's the sound of blood, but none come out although the body and head fly off nicely. This list is good though, is it wrong that I find how they do the decapitations so awesome.

    Long swords and battle axes can cause decapitations in Skyrim too.

    Helios' decapitation and the AvP2 speargun make me very happy. I remember the good ol' days on AvP2 when I'd have a good 5 square foot section of a wall covered in the same col. marine campers head. I miss that game...

    The Cerebral Bore from Turok 2 on the N64 provides an awesome decapitation.

    Kinda hope Skelter Helter's (pretty sure I misspelled that) one from No More Heroes 2's first fight/ tutorial would made it to the list.
  • XNam360 - July 15, 2013 11:05 a.m.

    You're right (and you didn't misspell it), that one was indeed the best of all time. This list may have left it out (inexplicably!), but there was an older article, "Top 7 Badass Beheadings," that did mention that one.

    Hey, Juliet's boyfriend Nick doesn't have it so bad being just a head. After all, it must be pretty cozy hanging around her... uhhh... skirt.

    Great list, decapitations are fun.
  • Moondoggie1157 - July 14, 2013 8:50 a.m.

    All great decapitations, the most fun I've had lopping heads was in Rage. Nothing made me laugh more than some overzealous enemy running straight at me only to have his head pop 3 feet in the air from a thrown wingstick, that was too much fun.
  • PatHan-bHai - July 14, 2013 8:44 a.m.

    THe Wolvie one is the best.
  • mafyooz - July 14, 2013 7:31 a.m.

    I reckon the beheading from the old Barbarian game should have been in here, it's the first game I remember where you could lop someone's head off, and they bounced pretty well too :)

    What a great thing to read while you eat breakfast. I think the Helios one is my favorite.
  • obviouslyadouche - July 14, 2013 6:49 a.m.

    I would have enjoyed watching the video of each one, but Dave does have a very sensual way of describing the decapitations which is almost as good.
  • GoldenEagle1476 - July 14, 2013 6:25 a.m.

    I've lost count of the number of decapitations you do in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.
