The most violent video games ever made

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

13. Doom (series)

Back in ye olde tymes of first-person gaming, Doom blew people's minds. First, you had a shotgun view of the world as you ran down a hallway. Second, you had digitized death strewn everywhere. Granted, it was demons you were killing, but nonetheless nongamers were shocked while gamers were mesmerized. (Doom, by the way, was one of the first major games open for modding and released as shareware.)
Gore factor: One pint of very pixelated blood. It's easy to look at the graphics here and laugh off the bloodshed. And at the red giblets that remained after you blasted something. But remember that this was considered state-of-the-art in the early 1990s. Since that time, of course, Doom as a franchise has grown. And as the graphics of the day improved, the games rose to the occasion, becoming even bloodier than before.

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.

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.

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.
