For me, It was Quake 4 on the Xbox 360. It was already more violent than most FPS games, but the part when I had to watch my character being strapped to a bed, and having their limbs sawed off and replaced in first person; with the screams of agony, was just too much.

I have never stopped playing a game because it was too violent and I have played some of the most violent games ever made.

Well, I play mostly fairly violent ones. But mostly asking if there ever was one for anyone that they had to stop playing because they got shookt?

To much isn't possible for me. I've seen, like, every horror film in existence. As far as video game gore goes, you haven't experienced the most of it unless you've played a gore-drenched VR game. Being in virtual reality and witnessing graphic violence is insane. You've got to have a backbone, so it's definitely not for everyone. One example, in RE7 on PSVR: seeing Jack get sawed in half, and then standing in his blood-and-feces-oozing intestinal display. Pretty effing gross. But awesome at the same time.

Having said all that, I guess there is a too much point for me, now that I think about it, and that is if animals are getting hurt. I mean, I won't turn off a movie/game if it happens a little bit, but if animals getting hurt or killed is the point of the production, then I'm out.

Gore has never really bothered me in games, it's closer to a cartoon than reality.

Goriest game? Possibly Soldier Of Fortune 2? It had an entire system built around blowing body parts.

I guess Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil 2 Remake would be about the goriest games that I have.

As for what would be too gory that I wouldn’t want to play it that would also depend on the context of it as well. For instance something like Hatred would be something that I would be turned off from playing.

Actually yea, Resident Evil 2.

It's more impressive the amount of detail they lavish into it than disturbing.

Goriest game I've played? Probably either Far Cry: Primal or Mortal Kombat X.

I didn't stop playing either because of the gore (I was desensitized to gore in 1994/1995 thanks to Doom II: Hell on Earth), but I am starting to trend more towards less gory games these days, like American Truck Sim, strategy games or toony platformers.

excessive gore makes many games seem unsettling, but I haven't played a game that focuses so much on human gore that I didn't play it. I would just avoid the game in the first place.

I didn't stop playing, but some of the slow mo x-ray bone breaking in Blitz: The League and Mortal Kombat 9-onward got to the point where it detracted from my enjoyment of the games.

I have never stopped playing because of gore. I wish more games had more of it. It’s not extreme enough for me.

I will mention that I loved Manhunts unique kills, it’s just a shame that the gameplay sucked and I never got to finish it.

Such a poorly made game.

MK. Difference is, I don't want to get them banned because I don't like them. You can enjoy it if you want to. Bit of an alien concept I suppose.

Soldier of Fortune 2 alpha was very meaty. The final game was too but they covered most of it up with excessive blood particles and splat decals. In the alpha version, you could see the brains and skull fragments next to people with half a head. I remember Vietcong (the uncensored version) was pretty good for gore too, you could see grenade and mine victims torso ripped open and ribcases sticking out :D. Those two were the most realistic depictions of gore that I can remember. Everything else is more like cartoon gore.

I never stopped playing a game because it was too gory.

I remember playing Soldier of Fortune as a child. The gore was the only thing I found fun with the game. Didn't like the levels or anything other than the shotgun and its ability to shoot off limbs.

In other words, gore in games doesn't bother me. Thought the sequence of Quake 4 was cool, but agree it was brutal. Game itself wasn't that great though. Prey (2006) had a similar sequence which I also enjoyed. The gore in Mortal Kombat makes me laugh.

Gore in movies is worse for me. Looked away several times in torture scenes of Game of Thrones, for example. I was better with gore as a child, lol. It's just not enjoyable to me anymore when it looks so real. Seeing a knife slowly cutting the flesh of a person who's screaming in agony, pale and sweaty, is just not.. nice. I'm fine with just knowing it happened. I don't need to see a dragged out torture scene showing exactly how it happened in detail.

So for me, no problem whatsoever with gore in games. Don't like detailed gore in movies. Seeing gore IRL brings me nightmares.

Gore is easy, but gore combined with the ability to be brutal is best. Shadow of Rome. Slice a guy's arm off. Use it to beat him to his knees. He pleads for mercy and ends up pissing himself. I throw his arm into the crowd, they go nuts, because Romans. They throw a gigantic halberd back. Use that to slice the guy in half, torso leaving his pissed breeches behind. Death. Crowd goes wild.

It was the shit.

I don’t know which game is the goriest, but I have DOOM, Diablo II, God of War series, Dead Space 1 and 2, and Resident Evil 2. I’ve never stopped playing games due to gore. Not yet, anyway.

@thatdbfan: Phantasmagoria. Not the gore, which was B movie ketchup stuff, but the rape scene was too much for me.

None... gore in games don’t really bother me, have a lot of movies I won’t see out of principle though. Think the torture porn genre is sick( movies like hostel etc) and really don’t get the point of them...

No game. I played carmageddon for a few minutes and it's boring. Can do the same in GTA 5.

Phantasmagoria's rape scene is less graphic when compared to Hollywood's offerings.

I'm far too desensitised to gore I love violent games. I don't think I have a boundary but I grew up on horror movies and games etc. I thought I was desensitised to scary horror games and would not feel the fear anymore but VR has proven otherwise.

I don't recall ever stopping a game. The only thing that really gets me is eyes. I just can't do horror with eyes. I always look away. I played a demo of Saw once where you had to cut a key out of your eye with a scalpel and I couldn't really look away from that as I had to see what I was doing, but I powered through it. I did squirm a lot. I guess if there's a game where all it really was about was eye gore porn, then yeah, maybe I wouldn't play that one.

As a generation xer with a keen fandom of Hammer Horror, fucking nothing.

I've stopped playing games because they bored me or something else interested me more or I got busy. Thats it.

I haven't stopped playing a game for this reason. It's conceivable that I might - I'm not a "gore junky" necessarily. But I've yet to play a game that's pushed me to that point.

Now I'm trying to figure out what the goriest game I've played has been

That movie is no joke. So freakin' gnarly. I understand someone not stomaching it, completely. If you're interested, check out Eraserhead. It's way less graphic, and was a pretty big influence on Begotten.

I was going to say this, to both.

Gore doesn't bug me, but violence does. The difference, to me at least? Gore is details, violence is the act itself; seeing someone get their leg shot off is gross and everything and there's blood everywhere but it's not as disturbing as watching a bus bloodlessly careen off a cliff and knowing everyone inside is dead is a violent act that bugs me a lot more than the former example.

Soldier of Fortune 2 was a huge scandal when it came out and the media got ahold of that knowledge about the damage system, pretty awesome though imo. Pretty sure I turned a guy into a quadruple amputee at one point before killing him.

@subspecies: I have not seen that either.

What is your top ten best? I think the 1970’s horror films are my favourites, The Exorcist, Poltergeist, Amytiville .... the old classics.

Another horror film just popped into my head, have you seen: French film, Matrys or Haute Tension?

Thai horrors?

I can take a lot of gore in games. It's not real after all. Pixels, not people, get killed. Anyway, Until Dawn was pretty nasty. Almost too much. Almost too scary. Loved it.

Martyrs is pretty good. Not for the squeamish, for sure. I liked that flick. Just vague enough to maintain intrigue. Thai horror really isn't my thing. As for Haute/High Tension, I've never watched it (no, lol, I've not actually watched every horror film in existence, just a crap-ton of them). That being said, you've reminded me that I've been meaning to watch that flick for years. Maybe I'll stream it this weekend. :)

Anyway, even the thought of creating a top ten horror list makes my head spin. I'm so indecisive when it comes to lists. I'd probably lose my mind trying, so I'll just throw out ten that I reeeeeally like.

Rosemary's Baby

Suspiria (original)

Phantasm

Jacob's Ladder

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3

The House of the Devil

The Love Witch

Videodrome

Carnival of Souls (original)

Mandy

...just looking at that list makes so many others pop up (The Changeling...Repulsion...Halloween...Don't Look Now...The Descent...Hellraiser...Near Dark...The Beyond...The Void...Audition...Pulse...ahhhhhhhhhh--) Some might say that some of those mentioned stray from horror, but whatever. As for eras, I love all of them, but yeah, the 70s were great. Movies like Suspiria can't be touched. Of course, I'm an 80s freak sooooo, yeah. ;)

And oh yeah, going back a bit in the conversation, I'll throw in two movies that "got to me". I didn't stop watching them or anything, but I can say they bothered me thoroughly. Probably more a personal experience thing than anything else, but here ya go:

Raw

Excision

None. The lack of gore in all modern M-rated games is damn depressing.
