Top 10 Most Brutal, Gruesome Ways to Die In Video GamesNote: 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!
That sounds painful
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.
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".
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.
Good thing this only happens in one level.
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.
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.
No offense, but his is not gruesome. If it shredded up Steve's body and webbed it...yeah that's scary.
Demon. Protagonist. Demon has giant hands. Fail to do the right stuff, your head is split apart. Yeah.
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.
(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.
Watch the videos.
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...
Its zombie that has a club for crying out loud!
It's quite a psychological pressure for a kid, I mean, how many kids got traumatized because of the drowning tune?
Yes it's the second Minecraft option, but there's nothing really like falling into the unknown Oblivion.
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.
Its basically a flying guillotine coming for you to slice your head off
If you get electrocuted to death in this game, Mario will be reduced to a bare skeleton, which collapses on the ground. I thought this game was kid-friendly!
In Big Boo's Haunt - the haunted house level - you will likely encounter The Mad Piano. Who will eat you alive.
Even though the player isn't the one who's dying, this still deserves to be on the list.
