the Top Five Mature Rated Game franchises

Mature rated games are easy to come by these days with all of the War shooters everyone is playing. But what about the mature rated games that hits a little closer to home. The ones that make gamers feel like they are truly alone. Or the ones that make them feel like a true badass taking out creatures internal organs out with their bare hands. The images below are taken right out of gameplay with the #1 game a video is provided to show just how disturbing it is. Gaming has come a long way over the past 40 years if you date back to the pong and Pac-Man days. So what is the most disturbing game franchise that is Rated M for Mature by the ESRB?

You know I would pretty much have to agree completely with this list, having only 5 to choose from.

Ok why isn't GTA #1?

it could arguably be the #1 franchise ever no matter the rating! Anyway here is a more proper list!

5. Resident Evil
4. God of War
3. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.
2. Diablo
1. Grand Theft Auto

Manhunt died with the PS2, Dead Space will be done after DS3 and will die with this generation but the games i listed are far better M rated franchises and have and will continue cross multiple generations.

Whether or not a franchise is still going has nothing to do with how good it is, so omitting Dead Space and Manhunt doesn't make sense.

Resident Evil had a great foundation, but seems to be foundering in recent times. And Grand Theft, while a great series in general, is somewhat too frivolous for my tastes. I would rather have Gears or Halo on the list, honestly.

I'd keep the article's list but replace Manhunt and Dead Space with MGS and something else(not space marine game).

I thought resident evil was rated teen?

rdgneoz31615d ago (Edited 1615d ago )

Going by the last sentence in the opening paragraph, I'd say the list is pretty good.

"So what is the most disturbing game franchise that is Rated M for Mature by the ESRB?" - That makes it seem like, "what games deserve the rating the most" not "which is the most popular mature rated game".

The brutal kills that you can perform in Manhunt beat everything you can do in GTA/Diablo/a ton of other games. Hell, many of the kills were censored unless you hacked the game to see them.

The barb wire is a nice touch as well... http://www.youtube.com/watc...

"Mature" shouldn't just mean filled with overt sex and violence.

Sure, GTA deserves a place on the list, but I'd argue a game like The Witcher 2 deserves a higher place, because it features maturity beyond R-rated content, delving into the complex politics of the world and confronting the player with choices that are not clearly good or evil.

Heck, many games that are extremely gory (like Splatterhouse) or sexy (like DOA Xtreme) are actually *less* mature, as they treat their subject matter in a shallow and almost comical way. Some of the games on this list come rather close to crossing that line as well.

The Saw films have more explicit content than The Godfather, but that doesn't make them more mature.

What's so mature about these games?

You want a mature game, try Deus Ex, Braid, Journey or Bastion, or any other game that's actually got something worthwhile to state.

Beeing bloody and full of boobs doesn't make a game mature, imo

TheGrimBunny1615d ago

also they are the franchises not the games themselves pr say

THESHAUNZY1615d ago

I can't imagine adding a COD or Battlefield game it just doesn't seem as bad as some of the titles on the list. I hope RE6 has some crazy kill sequences like RE4 created that shit made me wanna throw up when I first saw Leon's head fall off.

One of the few scary parts of that game was hearing the sound of that chainsaw getting closer and closer...

Saryk1615d ago

Fear should have been on that list!
