We’re talking about guts, gore, blood, and pure madness. These were the games that your parents wouldn’t let you play as a young child. And let’s be honest, if they bought them for you in the first place, it’s safe to assume they’re not going to be winning any parent of the year awards.
For this video, we asked you, our viewers, to pitch in, and we received some very gruesome suggestions. We narrowed that list down to 10… So if you’re into games that feature much savagery, this one’s for you.
The Darkness 1 & 2
Starting us off we have a game that marketed itself as being a quad-wielding first-person shooter. But in this case, you are not playing as Goro, you are actually the wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction called “The Darkness”. There’s no point in explaining what it is, what you do want to know is that it consumes human hearts in order to evolve and the player will have plenty of opportunities to slash, impale, shoot and pretty much combo these moves in order to achieve maximum savagery.
The Doom Series
And now we have a series that pretty much pioneered the first-person shooter genre. And back in 1993 DOOM entered the stage with a pretty gory display. Even though there were only a few pixels of blood and guts on the screen, the developers managed to nail it so that people would know right away that the game was truly savage. Today, they managed to preserve that gore and even threw in some fancy glory kills to make the player want to kill even more. One of these moves even has the character pull a heart for a monster’s chest and shove it down their throat. Now that’s style!
