Top 5 Most VIOLENT and Gruesome games in the history of gaming

Video games have always been a great form of entertainment that delivers emotional experiences which can never be experienced in real life.

For those of you who gain a special thrill or rush while playing games that involve spilling of blood, and decapitation, the messier it is the merrier it gets. (Arcade, GameCube, God of War 3, MadWorld, manhunt, Mortal Kombat, Ninja Gaiden Black , PC, PS Vita, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360)

For me GOD of WAR 3 is the pedestal franchise when it comes to strategic and cinematic boss battle experience in terms of scale and bloody violence.
GraveLord  +   1352d ago
God of War is the only series where the gore and violence is actually done right. I've seen lots of games with this stuff and it just turns out lame.
morganfell  +   1352d ago
This isn't the bloodiest scene but it is one of abject horror. I love it.
vitz3  +   1352d ago
Oh God... Another Top whatever the hell.

Without seeing the link I can already know what they're gonna say.

Since the pic is GoW, then they have to include a modern Ninja Gaiden, probably the second or one of the Blacks, Manhunt is obvious since the authors of these articles are usually born sometime after 1995, I'd say Thrill Kill but once again the writer's probably too young for that. Mortal Kombat might be in there somwhere, and some stupid current or last gen game that was gory for the sake of it.

These top whatever stories are literally all the fracking same.

The site doesn't mention soldier of fortune or diablo or gears of war. though, i didn't get the number 1 because of the incredibly stupid and intrusive way they throw ads in your face. this will be a blocked site from now on. nice job animegenius, you suck.

EDIT: just thinking through the hundreds of bloody games i've played over the years, this list just fails.

Ohh the list fails in NG Black. I love the franchise but its not as bloody as GOW3 and others. Also Where is The Darkness 2 ( if anyone played it you can understand why) and where is the goriest king SPLATTERHOUSE... it may not be as good as those mentioned but its the goriest... Just my 2 cents
jthamind  +   1352d ago
Ninja Gaiden Black is arguably the best action game ever, but it is nowhere near as violent and bloody as Ninja Gaiden 2.
thorstein  +   1352d ago
And what of ThrillKill for those of us who played it? This list certainly fails.
gamingdroid  +   1351d ago
I agree, NGB is hardly violent compared to NG2. Gears of War is also more violent than NGB....
spicelicka  +   1352d ago
Both god war 3 and gears of war 3. Where the eff is gears of war 3 on this list????
Megaman_nerd  +   1352d ago
GOW series is incredible from an artistic and story point of view, now I only hope they can evolve the gameplay beyond its current state for GOWIV to make something truly worthy of being called a masterpiece.
chriski333  +   1351d ago
Man I would love it if they made a new manhunt holy hell that would kick so much ass

There are bloodier games than God of War.

Soldier of Fortune is bloodier than any video game on this list. Higher degree of dismemberment, more gore, etc. The person who wrote the article is probably primarily a console gamer... from Germany.

True, there are allot more bloodier games than GOW but games that are more brutaly gruesome and violent? GOW still reigns, its not just about shooting a guys head in half, its the way Kratos killed his victims, brutaly beating them to death or slowly tearing off body parts or how about forcing his thumbs into their eyes.
zeddy  +   1351d ago
kratos tearing someones head off with his bare hands in gow3, it doesnt get much gorier than that.
Venox2008  +   1352d ago
Hell yeah madworld! great game and very violent .. I don't agree with MK 4..
BitbyDeath  +   1352d ago
Quan Chi's move of ripping off your opponents leg and beating them to death with it is pretty memorable.
geniusgamerdoc  +   1352d ago
Totally Agree!!!
Is it a first party Nintendo game? or is there a chance for it make it onto the PS3 or 360 as HD edition may be.

Venox2008  +   1352d ago
some fatalities - yes, I'm talking about overall game
Ricksta_13  +   1352d ago
God Of War 1,2,3, Chains of Olympus and Ghost Of Sparta there's the Top 5 !!! :-)
CommonSense  +   1351d ago
not even kind of.

this isn't a list about what games sony fanboys like the best. though you wouldn't know it from all these comments.

these are the games with the most gore. not violence...GORE. and TONS of games have more gore than any god of war game.

Rockstar's The Warriors tops my list. First of all you can do it all in co-op and it's absolutely unnecessary: you walk up to an innocent bystander, say the girl with the schoolbooks. You grab here for a quick headbut & drag her screaming in in an alley to throw her in the trash. After a good elbowdrop your buddy picks her up so you can break a bottle on her head and shove it up her stomach, after that you can still throw her trough a window to continue with various shop items or just keep on kicking while she's down untill she stops making that horrifying sound. Lovely, and not a word in the press=)
VonBraunschweigg  +   1352d ago
Putting your thumbs in Poseidon's eyeballs was pretty cool to, I remember feeling quite disgusted when I released my thumbs from the sticks. Very well done. Bashing Hercules' face in was a highlight to, not just 1 or 2 times, no no...áll the way through the floor.
one2thr  +   1351d ago
And you get to see the end result :)
Pintheshadows  +   1352d ago
No Soldier of Fortune? In the second game you could shoot a hole through someones face. Or what about Postal?
BraveToaster  +   1352d ago
I remember shooting a guy in the gut with a shotgun in Soldier of Fortune 2, and then watching him try to stop his intestines from falling out...
slavish  +   1351d ago
i was just about to post soldier of fortune. It came out on ps360 in like 2007 i think, but wow that was a graphic game.
BitbyDeath  +   1351d ago
Yea, that game deserves to be on the list.
Not that into shooters but did love both Soldier of Fortune 1 & 2.
Kahvipannu  +   1351d ago
Yeah, SoF is pretty damn brutal :P
badz149  +   1351d ago
the violence in SoF is just silly
and the game is terrible!
Pintheshadows  +   1351d ago
I'm talking about the Raven developed PC games. Not the recent crappy 360 game.
PersonaCat  +   1352d ago
I remember when the GOWIII demo came out and all of the journalists were crying about it being to gruesome for games. Some people even said they wouldn't be buying it! I knew I had a winner on my hands then lol

That's why you use an ad blocker. In the case of Firefox or Chrome, Adblock Plus works well.

geniusgamerdoc  +   1352d ago
is Manhunt 3 cancelled? MOVE support on the Ps3 could have made it a system seller.
bahabeast  +   1352d ago
god of war on the whole is really full of gore i mean guts ripping out, eyes bulge, head ripped off, legs and arms rip in EVERY scene
Frankfurt  +   1352d ago
The Splatterhouse remake is more violent than all those games.

Like 99% of lists such as these, they only list more famous games.
Kingdom Come  +   1351d ago
Where's Gears of War (any installment)?
slavish  +   1351d ago
gears has gore but its not realistic to me. The graphics are great but its just isn't as realistically gory as solider of fortune or god of war. I can't really explain it.
#12.1 (Edited 1351d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(5) | Report | Reply
CommonSense  +   1351d ago
you think god of war's gore is realistic, but gears isn't? first, what does realism have to do with it? second, are you nuts?
jeenyus  +   1351d ago
LOL, writer sees MK4 as oldschool.
GTRrocker  +   1351d ago
I'm glad to see manhunt at the #1 spot. I do think the newest mortal kombat for ps3 is the goriest one out of the series though. I would think so, more than 4 for the Pc. I never played that one though so I cant say for certain. I also think dead space needs to be mentioned.

Ah, I get it, the writer must be someone who thinks gaming began with the PS2.
Zephol  +   1351d ago
WHere is Doom?? 2 guys kill his partners in the school for doom and no figure on the list.
MeatAbstract  +   1351d ago
Much love Manhunt
Noticeably_FAT  +   1351d ago
I guess it just goes to show that a gory game doesn't always make for a good game.
Kahvipannu  +   1351d ago
Seems he listed some popular games.. If your going to make list like this, do some research, specially if you think MK4 is oldschool.. hehe^^
NeoTribe  +   1351d ago
Hands down gow is the leader of violence. First time in my life I felt bad killing a boss that was pissing me off. Except for hades. He can go fuck himself.
Mikeyy  +   1351d ago
That website looks like a 5 year old put it together...

And why is the list missing Soldier of Fortune 2?

IIRC, no other game has ever allowed so much gore in an FPS.

Fail list.
urwifeminder  +   1351d ago
Soldier of fortune 2 for sure manhunt ,left for dead 2 never played the hackn slash series god of war so cant comment.
DeadManMcCarthy  +   1351d ago
This articles lucky they put Manhunt on the list or I would have called it fail.
Entmoot  +   1351d ago
Why was that website do difficult to look at?
Awesome_Gamer  +   1351d ago
God of War 4 please Sony!!!
TheMutator  +   1351d ago
where is Condemned????????? whereeeeeee?
Kos-Mos  +   1351d ago
This article must please the american teens: "I`m adult because I watch blood!"
CrimsonEngage  +   1351d ago
This list fails and so does the Author. I stopped reading when he put down MK4 on the PC. Seriously? MK4 was good but only on console WHERE IT BELONGS. Second, the new MK game is the goriest out of any in the series and third (and this one takes the cake) is when he described Raiding using his razor sharp hat. That's Kung Lao you MORON!

And no GOW? How the hell are you not going to have Gears on this list? I'm going to throw up. Someone hand me a bag.
