The Top 5 Violent Games
- Mortal Kombat
The one who started it all. Although it looks pixelated and outdated now, it was undoubtedly the most violent video game of its time. Most of us played Mortal Kombat in at least one form of another by spotting a huge fanbase, a movie and a plethora of sequels.
Who can forget to pull in a victim with Scorpio bill beak; ‘Come here!’ As you follow it up with a horrible capital letter. The game used real-life actors and mapped their faces to sprites, creating a rather strange, yet realistic effect, which only made it so much more incredible when Sub Zero ripped someone’s head off so that their spine was hanging under . Kill!
- Carmageddon It was
originally released in 1997, but it’s an old doggie. It is still an enjoyable game and was a breakthrough in its time with video scenes from inside the car and real world physics.
Think Mad Max about steroids, and you will begin to feel how Carmageddon is located in a post-apocalyptic world where the car rules. The idea is to race against a handful of other modified observatories at various levels, including deserts, industrial areas and populated cities, all for the benefit of the Fear Factories Demanufacture album (hell yes!). However, if you do not feel like racing, you can hunt and destroy your enemies one by one until you are the only survivor. In addition to this, you can not only hit pedestrians, but you are also actively encouraged to do so by earning extra time and credit for combination bonuses and ‘artist impressions’ (which you completely blend in with a pedestrian).
Carmageddon caused media scandal when it was first introduced, and in most countries a ‘safe’ version was released with zombies, robots or aliens instead of humans. In some countries, the game is completely banned. None of this hinders being an absolute classic and the first 3D drive game to go anywhere, producing 2 successful sequels.
- Thrill Kill
Originally called S&M for slaughter and mutilation, Thrill Kill for PlayStation was never released, it was an ax 2 weeks before it had to go out. EA said they did not want to “publish such a senseless violent game” and said it was so insulting that they would not sell the game to another publisher. Fortunately for us, former employees of EA have released it on the Internet that is still available.
Incredibly simple, Thrill Kill consists of only a single room where up to 4 opponents fight to the death. The regular life bar is replaced with a kill gauge, which increases as your opponent does more damage, and eventually you can activate Thrill Kills, which were always exceptionally cruel, sometimes sexual, such as dismantling, mutilation, throat cattle or crushed skulls. Oh yeah. One of Cleetus’s fatal finishes was tearing the head off his opponent and drinking the blood that leaked from his victim’s cut neck. The story tells that the 8 characters all lived lively and died in different ways, gone to hell. A modern hell that reflects today’s real life. Marukkah, the God of secrets, placed them against each other and promised to give birth to the one who survived. Every character struggles for self-preservation and the hope of being born again.
Cleetus, for example, is a red-headed cannibal. The only victim he did not eat escaped minus a leg carrying Cleetus for good luck (and sometimes used as a weapon). Dr. Faustus, a master surgeon, died of an infection after installing his bearded stainless steel jaws.
Oddball was a top FBI agent who hunted serial killers. He began to admire them and slowly but surely fell into madness. Oddball is extremely intelligent, cunning and without remorse. Pity, sympathy and compassion have no meaning for him. Although his arms were tied in his cozy, small straight jacket, he learned to adapt, as any good predator should.
- Pos 2
One feature in Pos 2 is the ability to pick up cats as an inventory item. When used, the player shifts the barrel of the currently equipped firearm into the cat’s anus, as a ‘silencer’. Each time a shot is fired, the cat appears to be angry and the gun is muted. After several shots, the cat is killed and flies from the end of the weapon.
It should be worth mentioning any game where you can use a cat as a sound. Positive as well as Post Office administration had many protests from various activist groups. However, the software company Running With Scissors, who created the series, responded by saying that the amount of violence in the game is entirely dependent on the player. In fact, it is actually possible (though very difficult) to complete the entire game without harming anyone.
The game is split from Monday to Friday and the tasks are simple things on a task list such as ‘Cash Paycheck’, ‘Confess sentences’, ‘Get milk’, etc. To perform these seemingly simple tasks, the player can choose to be calm or complete, all violent with unique game changes for each choice. Some violent features include the ability to behead people with kicks, and then kick their heads around or fetch a dog, police killing innocent NPCs with batons, even if the NPC surrenders and begs for mercy and set people on fire with gasoline, matches, napalm and moltov cocktails. Not only is they violent, Pos 2 is also very disgusting. You have the ability to urinate people, which causes them to haunt in horror. You can also urinate on food that is then eaten and stored by the police. If a cow’s head is filled with Antrhax as a weapon, victims are blood spilled. Oh, and you can also kill people until they threaten to fear themselves and to urinate themselves. The ATF, SWAT, the National Guard, psycho-butchers, religious cults, the Taliban and Gary Coleman, Post 2 have earned themselves a violent and riotous reputation. is illegal in at least 3 countries.
Probably the most violent game on the list, turning point aunt James Earl Cash who was sentenced to death with lethal injection. His injection is replaced with a sedative and Cash is kidnapped by a wealthy Hollywood director. The director has a thing for Snuff flicks and sets Cash as his latest star, enabling local gangs on film in the most violent and gruesome ways possible.
The director communicates with Cash via an earpiece and security cameras record his murders. For extra points, the player must perform more gruesome murders. It ranges from suffocation by plastic bag, decapitation, the insertion of a crowbar in the skull of the enemy, etc.
Mansunt was outlawed in several countries when it was launched, and later in the UK, the game is linked to a real-life murder case of 14-year-old Stefan Pakeerah by 17-year-old Warren Leblanc. Stefans’ mother claims that Leblanc was obsessed with Manhunt after pleading guilty in court and that most sellers in the United Kingdom removed Manhunt from their inventory. This has led to a significant increase in demand from other retailers and internet auction sites. Police have denied any link, but it still strikes a cold chord. Especially when you consider that Leblanc killed his friend by striking him with a hammer, identical to an execution shown in Manhunt.
