The most violent video games ever made

Ready for a bloody good time? We dissect some of the goriest video games ever made.

The Most Violent Video Games

There's a reason why the game industry has a self-regulated ratings system. Would you strap in your tween to watch Saw? Maybe traumatize a toddler by reading it to sleep with Stephen King’s “It?” Exactly. So don't go buying an "M-rated" game for the kids.
Well, that got us thinking back to the violent video games (and one that barely even spilled a drop) that have stirred up all sorts of controversy in the past. So, for your reading (dis)pleasure, we've assembled a murderer’s row of the 15 bloodiest games ever created. For the most part, this reads like a list of must-play games — if you have the stomach for them.
(To be honest, it was really difficult to narrow it down to the few titles here. Many games drip with…stuff…but we only had enough room and enough time to focus on some of the bigger ones. Hit the comment box below and share some other twisted gaming moments we may have missed.)
Our Gaming Grim Reapers: The GamePro gang helped narrow down the list. You can also find more gaming coverage in Darren's creepy Casual Friday column and "Monstrous" Matt Peckham's Game On blog.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
