NowGamer relives the goriest, most brutal and depraved death scenes in games ever.
I thought Prototype should have been there. And Dead Space should have been higher than Gears of War.
God of War 3 should be no.1 IMO. I dont think there is something out there that is more brutal than this:
Yup GOW3 should be no 1. There are other fatalities that are as gory, but GOW3 graphics is what makes me cringe when I see that. That Helios head pulling still makes men nauseous at times. Even Hermes and Hercules death were gruesome, but Helioses death takes the cake.
The Hercules beat down. You have to watch it to know what I'm talking about. The brutality begins at 6:48. Beautiful carnage!! http://www.youtube.com/watc... Or maybe it was the Poseiden death? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Turok 2 N64- Cerebral Bore....the memory of the horrific crunching sound still brings a smile to my face If they are talking about scripted deaths...the from-behind decapitation in F.E.A.R 2 for sure: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Jeez, that fear one was sick.
Preferred the 1st one, not falling for the 3rd this time around...
There's a big HL2 spoiler in there. Just in case.
Are they born yesterday? worst.... they are getting paid for this crap? Wow!
What is HL2 again? Is that Half Life 2? I can't remember for the life of me.
I'm surprised that none of the MGS deaths made it in this list. Vulcan Raven gets eaten by Ravens! That's not a good way to go.
Manhunt Xbox cutting off heads... nuff said.
South Park FPS, cow launcher.
That was one of the most original games ever, chicken- egg shooting machine gun, cow launcher, it had it all. Good times...
How about Devil May Cry 3 in which Vergil kills Beowulf with ease and then after acquiring Beowulf's power uses the gaunlets to destroy Beowulf's body. Talk about kicking a dead horse... err... demon dead. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Vergil doesnt mess around unlike Dante. Sad thing was Beowulf got his ass kicked by Dante all ready and F-up his face. I'll be so happy if Vergil does the same to Nero!
not brutal enough cuz it was too fast and thanks to the crappy graphics
Yeah, it was the PS2 days after all. I still like it that and im such a DMC fan.
GoW3 no.1 lol san andreas too :P
Which San Andreas one dude? :)
It depends how you define brutal, this list clearly goes for gore factor so i was surprised manhunt wasn't on there. But if you define brutal as in shocking and tragic then I's say Aries death because she's so sweet and innocent and it pretty brutal that she gets killed in such a horrific way.
There's few game deaths that can attest to being that shocking. I agree :)
Poseidon's death in GOW3 was the nastiest. Well, maybe Hercules' one was slightly worse. I couldn't look at the screen after a while.
Phantasmagoria should have made the list, it had a couple fairly gruesome death scenes, especially for its time.
Not so much brutal in the method with which he died but more the emotional context, which rendered it devastating.
Gears definitely isn't no 1, but ok I guess. After the poseiden and cronos fights in GOW3, I just can't fathom brutality could be any worse.
Makes Mortal Kombat look like a Candy Land sequel.
GOW III is the most brutal game second only to the uncensored version of Manhunt 2
