14. Smash TV
Back in the classic arcade gaming days, there was a frantic shooting game called Robotron: 2084. You shot at colorful graphics on a simple black background; when you destroyed something, poof — it was gone in a series of triangles and pretty colors. In 1990, that idea got reinvented as another quarter-gobbler — Smash TV, the world's bloodiest show. That hyperkinetic video game had players running around dodging bullets in order to win "Big Money! Big Prizes!"
Gore factor: Two pints of blood. Body parts flew everywhere and after a while it was hard to figure out whose limb was whose. Mr. Shrapnel would voluntarily explode, showering you with debris, while Mutoid Man — the half man, half tank — would try to run you over. And, of course, if you accidentally stepped on a land mine, a jumble of arms and legs would launch up at the screen.
