My first time playing God of war....

The recent Mortal Kombat, God of War III. Both wonderfully over the top.

in my opinion I never felt god of war as brutal because its a fantasy action adventure , it never makes you feel nasty :-)

Gouging out eyes from the POV of the victim? Literally pulling off someone's head? Punching Hercules' face until it doesn't look like a face anymore? Sawing off someone's legs because you want their boots? God, I loved that game.

God of War so far for me, i don't usually go for the gory or really violent games, so that's the one for me

I'm surprised no one mentioned these two.

Recently, I'd nominate the new Shadow Warrior.

Manhunt is the game that I wanted to name

I think it's brutal how people can leave so much rubbish just sitting there in the road.

God of War managed to do it in a way that felt more cartoony and less real, to me. I always "Oh man, that was awesome!". Whereas some of Mortal Kombat's fatalities I just thought. "Oh man, that was a bit excessive". So I'll go with Mortal Kombat for this one.

Volition's The Punisher. Frank Castle doesn't give a damn about criminals. No rehabilitation, no mercy, he will execute and torture to get information. He held a criminal to the fence of a rhinoceros cage and let the rhino gouge him. One of his execution moves involved sticking a flamethrower nozzle in the enemies mouth and igniting it.

It was delightful.

Here is a video I found of snippets from the game. Conveniently set to a jaunty tune!

I downloaded some ultra gory mod for Oblivion. So that would be it.

yeah ive heard manhunt and god of war are as brutal as they come but I never played them....there was this FPS called solider of fortune (I think?) that was pretty brutal. The max payne games are too, not just they way you kill people but the messed up things that happen in the story.

God of War (all of them), Dead Space (all of them) and Mortal Kombat (all of them but mostly the last one with the neat graphics).

Mortal Kombat.

And I guess Heavy Rain was pretty brutal at times.

Hmm, there is a few brutal games, GTA, Manhunter, God of War , call of duty , Dishonored.

but its not real brutal.

The suffering

Soldier of Fortune

I'd probably go with State of Emergency. While it wasn't the first game to allow you to commit wanton violence, the scale of the wanton violence you could commit was unprecedented. And there was really no point to doing it...just mow down a crowd with a machine gun, blow up a few with a grenade, then pick up a severed limb and beat the shit out of someone with it. It was cartoony and a bit satirical, but the level of the violence makes it more brutal than games with more detailed gore.

Manhunt for sure.

#26 Posted by Flubbbs (2891 posts) -

probally Timekillers.. old school arcade game that pretty much was a Mortal Kombat rip off

#27 Posted by bobbetybob (19110 posts) -

Manhunt 1 and 2 easily. Other games are usually so over the top that the violence is almost comical, stuff like GoW and Mortal Kombat (although both games do have some pretty violent stuff) but Manhunt is just insanely dark and violent in a really nasty way and the sounds, oh God the sounds.

God of War I guess.

Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition and God of War III.

#31 Posted by Revixe06 (1021 posts) -

Off the top of my head, I'm going to go with The Darkness II.

#32 Posted by Zelda99 (729 posts) -

The Suffering, God of War III, Castelvenia Lords of Shadow and Devil May Cry 3

Brutal Doom is ridiculously gory, gibs everywhere. Well worth a play too.

#34 Posted by touchscreenpad (220 posts) -

I don't play a lot of gory games but based on what I remember, one of the games that I played that I think is gory is the Resident Evil Series...

#35 Posted by TAMKFan (32717 posts) -

The Manhunt games and God of War games. Mortal Kombat 9 isn't too far behind them.

Oh remember playing the punisher on the old xbox good old days.
