Pixelitis Picks: Most mosh pit-ready badasses in games

It’s amazing what music can do to a person.

Whether it’s making women of all ages fawn over a prepubescent, whiny Canadian boy or making someone think their middle-class, suburban life is really akin to a hard-knock life in the projects, it’s no question that given the right arrangement of lyrics and music, people tend to react in some drastic ways.

Take metal, for instance. The combination of crushing guitars, wailing vocals, and a penchant for all things “heavy” can transform anyone from a angsty teen to a Wall Street banker into a devil horns throwing, leather wearing, fist-pumping maniac hellbent on one thing.

Moshing.

To the uninitiated, mosh pits are something to be avoided at all costs. A place where injury is certain and only the reckless dare venture into. For the metal maniacs that frequent these thrashing sweaty masses of hair, arms and badass-itude, the mosh is a place of kinship. A place where today’s frustrations can be tomorrow’s black-and-blue badges of honor.

Though it’s mosh pit rule number one to watch out for your fellow thrasher, we at Pixelitis know it doesn’t hurt to have a friendly face or some downright muscle to wade through the teeming metal hordes. That’s why this week, we’ve gathered some of the most mosh pit ready badasses in games today after the break.

So throw up the horns, jump in the pit and for Satan’s sake, leave your karate kicks in the dojo, Ralph Macchio. (BioShock, Brutal Legend, Clu Clu Land, Culture, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, PC, PS3, Twisted Metal , Wii, Xbox 360)
