Gaming’s most devastating genital attacks

The most memorable groin injuries in gaming history, from funny to bloody

Above: See?

Videogames, just as they do with everything else in pop culture, have seen this basic truth and taken it to extremes. If balls getting hit with a football is funny, videogames reason, then balls being shot off, stomped or otherwise sustaining horrible, bloody injury must be at least a hundred times funnier. The surprising thing is that, they’re kind of right, as evidenced by the following horrors games have visited on digital nutsacks.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
