The 10 Most Insanely Gory Videogames

Gameist writes: "Videogames and violence go together like peanut butter and jelly. As any stoned out college boy can tell you, they complement each other perfectly and are twice as difficult to completely separate.

Efforts to remove any form of violence from video games have been met with scrutiny, scorn and downright failure. It cost Florida penal irritant Jack Thompson his career, his credibility and his ability to appear on television within five seconds of a bloody, national tragedy so he can blame it all on Banjo-Kazooie."

It's a shame Thrill Kill was never released. It was actually a fun game and nowhere near as gory, as a lot of people claimed it to be. I think it had more to do with sexual stuff, some of the characters were doing, instead of the gore.

Thrill Kill was later re-made into a Wu-tang Clan fighting game.

I was going to write almost exactly what you said, word for word. Thrill Kill, which I still have a copy of, wasn't very gory. No worse than Mortal Kombat. It was the french maid and the other sexy characters along with their celebratory moans and bonage gear at the end of a match that caused the most stir. The whole game has a very S&M feel to it.

Plus, I think it was EA that aquired the game off Virgin (those names could be wrong) and it had already gathered alot of bad press, so they just canned it and avoided the whole sh*tstorm.

You are correct. EA cancelled to game to avoid looking bad in the eyes of the public. Because at the time Mortal Kombat had got a lot a bad media exposure and EA didn't want its image to be part of that.

Where is Ninja Gaiden II? That has quite a bit of blood and the enemies bodies (and limbs) "never" disappear. Honorable mention perhaps...

And where is Soldier of Fortune? It was pretty damn gory!

The author is more than likely to young to remember that title. When the chick gets her head split in two was proably one of the goriest moments in gaming history. Heck, you could even see her eyeball spit out her head!

Geralt3534d ago

Head split in two? Sounds... nice...

The second phantasmogoria was more gory even in its censored form, the uncensored version is a lot better though
