Top 10 Most Violent Video Games

Video games have had a reputation to be more of the violent genre of sub-culture, but usually within a limit. but some games seem to go all out in being violent.

The Top TenXW


A three year old walks up to the game shelf and says "Hm... I will pick this one! "
She/ He picks Manhunt because they like the colourful mask.
Then they start playing it...

God this game is amazing! One of the best things of PS2!

I agree. I was honestly looking for this one to at least be in the top 3, but it definitely deserves the #1 spot. It's utterly ridiculous how violent it is-- but not too surprising, (obviously given the name). They don't even have the regular version anymore, they banned the publishing of the game with uncensored killings. Not quite as brutal anymore.

oh men I have seen this game in youtube in first 30 seconds I closed it the video in the start shows a men putting a bag on the head of other people and killing them then it becomes worst the guy has knife or hammer and he pins the knife in the other people face - paminos

Unlike Mortal Kombat, both Manhunt and its sequel have the violence that is realistic. Manhunt's executions are more gruesome than Mortal Kombat's fatalities in my opinion.

2God of War

The goriest series ever! Crushing heads with doors, hammers, gutting people, ripping em apart. So much fun!

"If you like to kill freaky things with your giant serrated knives, you'll love this.

All you can ever wish for.

Very very nice game

3Grand Theft Auto IV

Violent and I love it but has very inappropriate things for a 6 year old to play. If I had a 6 he/she would not be playing this game PERIOD.

If Grand Theft Auto IV is violent than Sonic the Hedgehog must be the most brutal series in existence

Good game and I'm 6

I love this game. It is kool

4The Warriors

The profanity on this game has absolutely no bounds bloody violence man hunter style stealth attacks, blood everywhere, beating people up, stabbing them on the ground, long lasting gang brawls that last quite long, cutting their throats etc this is a great game and should be on the list!

Definitely should be on the list considering all the bloody fighting, murdering and bludgeoning, the members walking around with bloody pulped faces, not only that but a lot of swearing, robbing, drug use, and some sex references etc

Great game!

Based on the epic movie, this game is the perfect mix of murder, betrayl, gang life, and total kick a**

Awesome game played it as a kid

I love to play this game

So many semi-randomly-generated ways to die! It's amazing and shocking at the same time!


With this commitment brought the need not only for an excessive number of armaments (more than 20 weapons) but for the brand of over-the-top murder seen in the pages of the comic book. The Punisher's great innovation is in its interrogations and special kills. These grandiose moments often make use of the environment to offer creative ways for the Punisher to force information from criminals or to simply off them with aplomb

Its the punisher you shoot limbs and heads of inpale people, burn people alive, shoot them, drill them in the face shall I continue

7Fallout 3

Mutilation and there is no Male/Female difference, unlike most of the games in the world the enemies are men, this games is 50% male,50% female, that's what I love these series, they're close to reality. - GREYBOYY

9Postal 2

This game is violent, great, amazing, funny and weird, ( weird because you can pee everywhere ) has not the best graphics but the best damn game I ever had. ( I just like peeing on people. )

Even though the movie was violent, it seems droul in comparison to this game

It's so gory it's in black and white! No game ever has had to do that! - nic1997ps3

It's one of the most violent video games ever yet they gave it to the Wii

15Mortal Kombat

Mortal kombat is much more violent than any other game on this list!

NUMBER 19?! SERIOUSLY?! WHY ISN'T THIS NUMBER 1? Not being biased but that's how I feel.

16Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Even though there is not much blood, violence is prevelent in this game, up close and at range, it could demorilize anyone who is not used to it

17Dead Island
18Resident Evil 4
19Dead Space 2
20Manhunt 2

The only AO Rated game that got that rating strictly for violence that actually was released. The other was Thrill Kill, but was never officially released.
