    Why is it that facebook links always take me to the home page? I shouldn't have to click twice to get to the article you yourself are promoting. Please fix this, or I'll stop clicking.

    How about Shadow of Rome? You can cut off a guy's arm, pick it up, beat him to death with it, then throw it into the crowd for bonus points. My favorite was the Bloody Volcano, where you got bonus points if you managed to cut off someone's head, both their arms, and cut them in half before their body hit the ground. Plus enemies include woman, midgets, and animals (elephants, tigers, etc.), so it's equal opportunity.

    Since you removed "Posted on..." / "Updated on..." from the article page format, I need to look at the comments to find the posting date.

    That's because now they're recycling old articles on Facebook...

    Also, BladedFalcon, you just gave me an awesome idea...the Top 7 Games That Did Violence Right!

    Definetely agree with Manhunt... Man, that was a really violent game, it's sick, really!
  • TheGooseinator - September 17, 2013 7:52 a.m.

    Good point. In that case, I would put Gears 2 on the list. Nothing beats the satisfaction of your first lancer killXD

    Ahhh Bulletstorm, the bloody game that captured my heart. Splatterhouse should have been on this list since it does cause goregasms. It gets the blood pumping..... TO MY LOINS OHHH!!!!!!

    The last bit (sentence) was from SR3, right?
  • g1rldraco7 - July 30, 2014 3:38 p.m.

    Yep :)

    Shank is the most violent video game I've ever played. The boss finishers in that game get insane.

    Corpse Party. By far.
  • GoldenEagle1476 - September 16, 2013 5:58 p.m.

    Prototype and the Left 4 Dead series are some of the bloodiest games I've ever played.

    I played the shit out of chiller back in the day. surprised anybody even knows about it
  • Satchurated - September 16, 2013 2:51 p.m.

    What about Gears of War and Deadspace?
  • BladedFalcon - September 16, 2013 5:03 p.m.

    Both are pretty graphic, but neither have as much gratuitous display of violence like these games do. The way the games in this list display violence is pretty much fetishistic and unrestrained, and go to lengths beyond anything dead space or Gears of War go.

    I would put The Last of Us on the list for the same reason as Manhunt; not because of the sheer amount of gore, but because of how the game adds no frills to its realistic, uncomfortable brutality. You kill nearly everyone you meet, and the slow, sloppy, unpolished methods Joel uses makes even the simple act of choking someone out feel mortifying. But the violence "succeeds" because it adds so much to the players immersion in the game. For the first five hours of the game, you will be unnerved, by both the sickening methods you must employ and the enemies intentions concerning what they do to you if you don't stop them. But as the game progresses, this feeling of sympathy fades away. You will never WANT to kill someone, but like you would in the real scenario, you understand that it is something that needs to be done, and you will not shed a tear as you murder even the most likable, apathetic survivors. When you realize what you've done at the end of the game, and how you felt while you were doing it, you will truly feel like a monster. And, when done right, that is exactly how video game violence is supposed to make you feel. Bravo, Naughty Dog. Bravo.

    That's the thing though. While TLOUS has very realistic, gritty violence, it's still more restrained, and not nearly as frequent or as gratuitous as it is in manhunt or any of the games in this list. And as i understand it, this isn't a list of "who does violence better" but of "Who has the most of it". Regardless of the quality of the violence itself XD

    Where's Splatterhouse when ya need it?
  • GR_LucasSullivan - September 17, 2013 4:21 p.m.

    I remember now why I excluded it: the enemies in that series are all monsters, and don't really look anything close to human. Whereas all the games on this list depict man's inhumanity to man (with the exception of some Mortal Kombat and GoW folks I suppose)
