    I hate to moan, but Dante's Inferno didnt portray the Seven Deadly Sins. That was Purgatorio. Shame that the game was just a generic hack n slash yawn fest.

    If you're wondering why Game X isn't on this list, it's because I wanted to focus on a combination of stuff that was either fairly obscure, historically notable (I'm pretty sure Earthworm Jim is the first kid-friendly game to get away with having a Hell stage), or featured the afterlife as its primary setting. I opted to mostly avoid more recent games with just a single hell level. I'm really glad to see that this feature is generating discussion and suggestions, though!

    I always liked Painkiller's Hell. It was a breath of fresh air. Instead of fire and brimstone, it is just frozen moments in time of the brutality and violence of man.

    I know it's not the actual thing, but what about God of War's Underworld? If you can put a Buddhist Hell level in the list, surely you can spare some room for the Greeks too? I mean come on, you fight Hades himself there!

    Fantastic article. Also, I would suggest "The Darkness." There is literally a level where you go to hell while WWII is happening. In hell! Fighting Nazis in hell with Darkness powers was absolutely mind-funking. Nice job, Heidi.

    The omission of Grim Fandango is inexcusable. Rectify at once.
