Top 10 Most Brutal, Gruesome Ways to Die In Video Games

Note: There is a difference between deaths in video games and ways to die in video games. While "ways to die" means that you will be respawned to try again, "deaths" in video games are permanent. Also, they have to make me quiver in fear, and I am excluding Mortal Kombat fatalities. Enjoy!

The Top TenXW

1Needle in Brain - Dead Space 2

I don't wanna talk about this. Please. Look it up. Explain in the comments section. Just.. oh, my God! - FantasticFour

Dead Space is probably one of the most brutal series - bobbythebrony

This is so bloody it's a sharp needle that go through your charactors eye and brain

2Killed by Keeper - The Evil Within

Truly disappointing. This scary game isn't the scariest. But, it did have some brutal deaths. Like, having your head smashed by the giant hammer from one of the bosses, the Keeper. This is why the "real people" were screaming on the game's commercial. - FantasticFour

3Head Impaled - Tomb Raider

The brand new Tomb Raider really save the Tomb Raider franchise. But, certain points of the game have you sliding. Fail to dodge the pole? Well, to sum it up, "Brain meets pole, Lara dies". - FantasticFour

4Eaten by Devourer - inFAMOUS 2

In an amazing Third-Person Shooter, you play as Cole MacGrath, a conduit that has electric superpowers. In inFAMOUS 2, you have to defeat monsters called Devourers (at some point). Getting eaten by one of these thing is brutal, as you get attack by the Xenomorph-inspired tongue, then eaten to death. Beautiful. - FantasticFour

5Dissolved - Super Mario Galaxy & Super Mario Galaxy 2

I could have gone with being eaten alive in New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but I thought this was just scary. If you touch dark matter, Mario will scream in agony as he dissolves from the bottom-up. Keep in mind, this is from Mario. Nintendo. So dying like this has be on the list. - FantasticFour

6Eaten by Spider - MineCraft

Imagine it. You have built awesome creations, gotten many resources, and leveling up. Nice! And then, one Minecraft night, you want to become a monster hunter. Then a giant spider comes up and bites you until you die. What's so brutal about this is that Steve doesn't scream at all. Wow. - FantasticFour

No offense, but his is not gruesome. If it shredded up Steve's body and webbed it...yeah that's scary.

7Head Split Up - Phantasmagoria

Demon. Protagonist. Demon has giant hands. Fail to do the right stuff, your head is split apart. Yeah. - FantasticFour

8Drill - Silent Hill: Homecoming

I don't really know about this game, but I do know this brutal way to die. At one point of the game, the protagonist, Alex, is tied to a chair, and a drill is stabbed in his thigh. You then break out of the ropes(? ) and try to stop the drill from reaching your eye. Fail? You get a drill to the eye. - FantasticFour

9Defeated by Descendant - Uncharted: Drakes Fortune

(Warning: Spoiler) At some point in this game, you have to fight descendants - zombie-like creatures that transformed because of what was inside the El Dorado (the treasure you are looking for). You can get clawed to death, or have your throat eaten off. Brutal. - FantasticFour

10Sucked Into Black Hole - Super Mario Galaxy

The Contenders

11Impaled by Metal Robot Parts - Five Nights at Freddy's 3V1 Comment
12Falling Into the Void - Minecraft

Yes it's the second Minecraft option, but there's nothing really like falling into the unknown Oblivion. - RollerCoaster

13Eyelander - Team Fortress 2

You're playing as soldier, blasting the enemy's sentries to bits, when a demoman swoops out, slashing your sword. He takes your now decapitated head and adds it to his own health. - AsteroidCat

14Noob Saibot Make a Wish Fatality - Mortal Kombat

Nobody...not men or women wants do die like this. Hurts to watch for every gender.

15Jumping Off a Cliff With a Bomb, Then the Bomb Explodes In Midair and You're Corpse Falls Into Lava and Burns to Ashes - The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
16Fatality - Mortal Kombat
17Impaled by Your Own Icicle - Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
18Eaten by a Zombie - Plants vs Zombies Series

There is no gore, but think about it. The zombies bite through your skull to get to your brain, then you die. Don't remind me about snow weasels either...
