The Question of the Week: What's the first violent game you remember playing? Answer to win a free game or something cool!

    First game that I remember that was super violent was Blood for the PC.

    The first violent video game I remember playing was the original Mortal Kombat on the SNES. I played the game to its fullest on the super nintendo first and I only heard about the fatalities on the arcade. So on the occasional trip to the arcade I would see someone playing and was surprised and actually laughed at how gallons of blood would fly out of people when an uppercut was landed. Though I still actually prefer Raiden and Sub Zeros fatalities on the SNES, Lui Kangs sucks no matter what version.

    The first violent game I played was the original God of War. I was seven when it came out, so when my Dad's friend let him borrow it, I played it as soon as I could. This was a game of three firsts for me. 1. First violent game 2. First fear from playing a game 3. First BOOBS As soon as that nicely rendered cutscene in the bowels of the ship played, I knew that this was the game for me. P.S. Hell yes I played that minigame :D

    Oh, hey there GR, long time no see? Well, the first violent game I've experienced is Duke Nukem 3D. So here I am, a 7 year old boy shooting aliens, space pigs, and strippers, not a care in the world, until I met the Octobrains. Those tentacled fiends scared me to the point where it prevented me from ever playing the game past the 3rd level. Seriously, the sight of one of those at that age I dived straight into the power button to make the image go away. Not entirely strange for a child to be terrified of a monster, but those scars were large enough to quiver to this day. Come 2011, I forced myself to complete Duke Nukem 3D (I actually did it). I winced at every echoing howl and grotesque close-up of the Octobrains. Inadvertently, fearing water in EVERY videogame for the unfortunate event of finding a nest of hatching amoebas to then be surrounded by their screening hugging chomps. For context, I'll link a picture of the vile creature, which WAS ALSO A TOY.

    Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 for the GBA, in reality it is probably one of the worst games I have ever played. But when you fell off the board your body slowly slid leaving a trail of blood and that blew my 5 year old mind.

    My first real "violent" game was GoldenEye 007 for the N64, back when I was 10 or so. I received it from a man who was selling projectors at a county fair, and was also making some side-money from selling his old game collection. I play tested the game at the fair, and because I died within seconds of starting the first level over and over again (he had it set to 00 Agent difficulty), I was faced with a tough decision: Do I want this guy's 007 game, or do I want his Superman 64 game. Since I was 10, this was a hard decision. I wanted 007 a little bit more, and my mom seemed to overlook the violent factor after she saw me play test Superman, so I made what I consider to be the best decision of my life. I got GoldenEye, and had a great childhood.

    The first i can remember playing was Mortal Kombat 2 and even then as a young child i thought the game just looked stupid.
  • CountRichtertoffen - January 21, 2013 2:58 p.m.

    My first violent game was Mortal Kombat 3 for the Super NES. I was 3 or 4 years old. No worry, it didn't affect my development as a member of society at all. (Aside from the whole "catching and eating all of my food live" habit that I've become accustomed to)
  • kingsmikefan - January 21, 2013 2:48 p.m.

    My first violent game was Splinter Cell: Double Agent. My dad bought it for me when I was 14. I wrote about it on my blog *plugs shamelessly*.
  • SunniDee - January 21, 2013 12:57 p.m.

    The first violent video game i played would be Super Smash Bros Melee that i played at a friends house. This was the first teen game i have ever played (i was like 8 at the time) and i remember my mom not letting me buy or play it at all because of that teen . It took at least a couple of days(forever in kid time) to convince her otherwise that it wasn't that bad at all. The first M game i played was Halo 3. (Sidenote i do remember seeing Goldeneye being played but i was 5 and don't think i actually played it)
  • Boriquaboy99 - January 21, 2013 10:02 a.m.

    First violent game I remember playing is GTA3
  • F4G1TR0N - January 21, 2013 7 a.m.

    Enjoying radio radar by the way guys! Wouldn't have my fridays end any other way. I LOVE CHANGE
  • F4G1TR0N - January 21, 2013 6:58 a.m.

    GTA III here. Played at my cousin's house while my parents were downstairs. All we did was kill people with snipers, run over people, and get the car to shake. I learned much later they were having the sex. I asked if I could borrow it from my cousin an they said no.
  • FlagrantPilgrim - January 20, 2013 12:51 p.m.

    I really miss the "In the Office" and "In the Community" sections of the TalkRadar podcast pages. Do you have any plans to do anything like that in the future?
  • GR HollanderCooper - January 21, 2013 6:28 p.m.

    If you guys want, we can do something like that.
  • Linktolegend - January 22, 2013 2:48 a.m.

    Forthcoming experimental sections? Sounds cool.
  • FlagrantPilgrim - January 22, 2013 7:34 a.m.

    I'd love to see it. It doesn't have to be the same thing, but it was cool to get a look into the GR office.
