Top 10 Most Violent Video Games

Video games have a reputation to be more of the violent genre of subculture, but usually within a limit. But, some games seem to go all out in being violent.
The Top Ten
1 Manhunt

This is less violent than its sequel but still extremely bloody/gory. I swear it f it wasn't for this hatred wouldn't even have existed. Touture scenes and grisly imagery everywhere. In fact even now it's not tame

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.

2 God 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.

3 Grand Theft Auto IV

This game is boring...and not only that, but This game so violent and offensive I can't even put it into words! and I am truly sad to see such young people playing it! I will never let my kids play this game or any game in the franchise! parents who let anyone under sixteen play this are idiots!

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.

Not for kids. Gore is rare, but when it appears, it's violent.

4 Bioshock
5 Manhunt 2

I mean, this was one of the ONLY games to be rated AO because of violence/gore. I mean the image should tell you just about everything you need to know. Please vote this to be no.1.

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.

6 MadWorld

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

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

7 Happy Wheels

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

The game is just violent but it's fun by the way. Mortal Kombat should be on Top Tens.

I thought it was a kids game, then...SPLAT! Somebody's head explodes.

8 The 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!

9 Universe Sandbox

There are lots of video games out there with violence, such as Call of Duty, Manhunt, God of War, Mortal Kombat, and Grand Theft Auto IV, which involve violence such as shooting people and blowing up buildings. But they hold no candle to this.

Universe Sandbox has you making planets collide, blowing them up, and even flinging them into the outer reaches of space where it’s too cold, and you can even let them fall into black holes, and even change their mass, diameter, radius, composition, rotation, axial tilt, and even orbits. You can even turn planets into stars, or even neutron stars or black holes. You can even make them go supernova. Yet you can even blow up GALAXIES!

Try blowing up Earth, and you’ll see everyone on it, and all the plants along with them, die from just one event.

Does Call of Duty let you do that? Does Manhunt let you? Does God of War let you? Does Mortal Kombat let you? Does Grand Theft Auto IV let you blow up planets and kill all life on them? NO! Universe Sandbox is the one-of-a-kind and the real king, and lets you do some of the most violent stuff you could think of. None of the guns or even bombs in any of those games or any we’ve ever invented are even capable of blowing up a moon, planet, star, black hole, or even galaxy! You can mess with planets and systems, not to mention some of those planets and/or moons may be harboring life, and once you let something crash into it or blow it up or give it inhospitable conditions, then all life on those worlds would perish, yet you can even cause such a catastrophe on those worlds in minutes or even an instant!

Universe Sandbox is officially the all-time most violent video game (or simulator if you want to call it that) ever made. It’s WAY more violent than shooting a person with a rifle, blowing up buildings, or all of the other games on this list COMBINED!

10 Dead Rising 2
The Contenders
11 Grand Theft Auto V

The fact that the uncut version of SA is rated AO and this is rated M is ridiculous. This has to be the most violent GTA game ever because of its frequent gang violence. Gore is VERY rare tho. Still not for kids.

I mean just… the fact this didn't get an AO rating and San Andreas did is ridiculous. Lots of violence and intense gun fighting and slashing. Gore is VERY rare tho. Definitely not as graphic as your typical mk game. However San Andreas should be rated M if this is rated M.

Most shooting and bad it's realistic graphics can make any 11 or low mad or make crime easy peasy

12 Punisher

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

He's called the punisher for a reason. To think marvel of all companies made this gory hero (or anti-hero) was quite a radical thing to believe, since marvel movies are usually rated PG-13 and not R. But this game… violence and gore appears throughout and profanity is throughout as well. Lots of bloody violence this is worse than logan.

13 Fallout 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.

I used to play this game 20-4-7 but then I got the xbox 1

14 Postal 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. )

15 God of War 2

The game like Grand Theft Auto Mortal Kombat or manhunt this game is brutaly violent no it is a great game but way too intense.

16 Mortal Kombat Trilogy

Awesome game with impressive story and countless finishing moves. Real gore and brutality

Should be at least top 10. The original MK started ESRB ratings considering the controversies it brought up.

Without it, we would only be playing kid-friendly games.

17 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
18 Hatred

I couldn't even watch the trailer for 15 seconds for this one... It's only on PC and It's rated AO... Hell the main objective of the game is killing people just for the sake of killing people

I can't believe this isn't in AT LEAST the top 15. The point of this game is to kill as many innocent people as you possibly can.

Would be top if it wasn't released so recently.

19 Red Dead Redemption
20 Mortal Kombat X

Not for kids. In the trailer, Scorpion uses the thing he uses for his catchphrase "Get Over Here!" To bring Sub-Zero's head off and then stab it with a tree. Utterly gory and violent. Get this in the top 10.

Wayyyy to gory for kids. To think that this was part of a game franchise that made 90s kids childhood was quite radical, although all mortal kombat games (except mk vs dc) were rated M. One of scorpion's fatalities has the opponent burning in fire, which melts all their skin. One of Cassie cage's fatalities is shooting the opponent's legs and arms off and they putting a balloon on their face and popping it. Not for kids at all.

21 Darksiders
22 Assassin's Creed
23 The Last of Us
24 Brutal Doom
25 Left 4 Dead

Always been a big fan of Left 4 Dead, especially the 2nd one which was a lot better
