What’s the Word? What is the Most Shocking Game That You Have Ever Played?

"Gore, horror, in-game glitches, plot twists- all of these things can contribute to a shock factor. What one person perceives as shocking may be wildly different than how another feels. Scary images may shock and appall some while others just scoff at the creepy, faceless creature in the dark. Gore can turn the stomachs of even the bravest men and turn them into sniveling children. There are many different ways to define what is truly shocking. I asked friends of the social media to give me their interpretation on what they consider to be the most shocking game and why. Leaving out the context of how they should answer, many were confused, but it ultimately led to some pretty interesting comments." (Burnout Paradise, Dead Space, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)
