Top 10 Most Brutal and Gruesome Deaths in Video GamesGetting totally destroyed in games isn’t exactly a fresh idea, but sometimes, a game pops up that just blows our minds by showing characters’ final moments in super vivid and shocking detail. Games these days are getting pretty wild, with death scenes becoming more and more realistic and insanely creative, stretching what we thought was possible and sometimes making us squirm a bit.
These are the most brutal, permanent deaths in games. We're talking about the absolutely crazy levels of doom here, the kinds of game overs that stick with you long after you've hit the power button. These moments are so extreme they’ll definitely leave an impression and have you thinking about them for days.
Poor Leon. This is the most undeserving execution in the game. He killed someone because he was attacked by said person. (I'm not going to reveal who he killed/who attacked him, as it might spoil it for those who haven't finished Chapter 1 or haven't played the game, or at least watched the anime.)
His death is nicknamed "The 1,000 Blows." Leon is tied up to a baseball scoreboard. A baseball machine pointing in his direction starts up, and after about 900-1,000 baseballs, a baseball player appears and throws a couple more baseballs at him. He then dies. It isn't quick, either.
The colors and art make it scary. I was very startled by this execution. Not to mention, Leon is the only character that had red blood in the entire series.
Dead Space is an extremely violent survival-horror game, so anyone's death would qualify. However, Hammond is pounded by an Enhanced Brute. Hearing him scream while being beaten by the creature adds a sense of fear. It makes you think, "What?! That just happened?! And he's still screaming after being beaten by that creature?!" Yeah, something like that.
Any other god's death would have been good enough for this list. But Helios is given the special treatment. He has his head ripped apart from his body by Kratos' hands. It is slow, bloody, and brutal. I don't ever want to tick Kratos off.
In this part of Outlast, Miles starts an elevator. As Trager tries to catch Miles, he is pushed back into the moving elevator going upwards, where he then gets crushed to death. Ugh.
This guy's death is a brutal one indeed. After Ellie is pushed down and choked by David, Ellie grabs a nearby machete, swinging at David and cuts his face open. Dang. And I thought the zombies had it bad.
Pyramid Head can deliver some pretty brutal deaths. Adam has his hands tied up, literally, to two different poles. After a conversation with Alex (the protagonist), Pyramid Head, the party pooper, appears. He then decapitates Adam and rips his body in half vertically. Dear God.
Andrew gave us one of the best plot twists in gaming. However, Andrew has Jack kill him with his famous "Would you kindly" phrase. Jack then proceeds to hit Andrew in the head with Andrew's golf club. The end result is both priceless and disgusting.
He mutilated his own body, slashing his thighs, stabbing his own hand, and had to stay in that excruciating state for an unknown period, holding the spear with one hand to prevent it from impaling his body too early. Who knows how much effort and energy it took enduring all that pain. Moreover, what killed him wasn't even confirmed. It could have been the poison, or the spear impaling him, or maybe both. Either way, his death was one of the more gruesome and painful deaths I've seen in the game.
I was really devastated, but then I found out he did it himself and then I'm all like, He is really smart. He had a spear in his stomach, a knife in one of his hands, and knife-cut wounds in his legs and one of his arms, and he was tied up. Poison was also involved, discovered later on. Before his death, he caused an explosion. That's the picture to the side. Anyway, I love this guy. He's like my husband to me.
Captain Price and Yuri attack Makarov in his hideout. Yuri is killed by Makarov. Price beats Makarov in the face, then ties a cord around his neck and breaks the glass roof under them. Makarov is hanged, while Price is hurt - a small "Price" (see what I did there?) for the greater good of mankind.
Her body was shattered into two, and, not to mention, it begins to fall slowly when she says her last words.
Your character, Jason Brody, has spent hours playing and dealing with enemies to kill this S-O-B. Using two knives, Jason then proceeds to impale Hoyt in the neck, using the other knife for the brain before Hoyt collapses, dead.
Carmine is a cursed name. Benjamin collapses out of the helicopter that the D.E.L.T.A Squad was riding in while they were being swallowed by a giant Riftworm. Inside the belly of the beast, Benjamin’s stomach has been chewed out by parasites. (Willy Wonka) Ew.
It was somewhat brutal, particularly in a psychological way. Imagine the only thing keeping you going is your brother, and then he gets killed. He was fighting for so long and so hard, only to eventually get killed in the long run.
That should be in my "Most Brutal, Gruesome Ways to Die in Video Games" list. I agree, though - the deaths are quite gruesome and brutal.
The death screens in this game can be pretty graphic and detailed if you die.
