    "Manhunt is a great game for being able to live out some of your secret fantasies that you keep locked away in the deep recesses of your mind. This stealth-action game is very well known for being incredibly, sometimes over-the-top brutal."

    "Carmageddon is a great violent driving game available on the steam store. You get to drive around on tracks and smash into different things including cows, penguins and other humans. There's many ways to play and hours of fun smashing into things."

    "If you like taking your day's frustration out on hapless video game characters, then this is the game for you. I find it therapeutic. Bad day at work? Hatred to the rescue. Girlfriend nagging on you? Hatred is right there."

    "Outlast 2 benefits from avoiding the tired mental asylum setting of the original and travelling the lesser worn road of the Sonoran Desert. This is an authentic horror experience and is not, by any means, for the faint of heart. Outlast contains some of the most terrifying moments I’ve experienced in a horror video game, ever. I play it loud and in the dark to heighten my experience but do not really recommend that if you are squeamish. Outlast 2, like any good sequel, builds on the experiences of the original."

    "While not the most violent game on the platform, if you're looking for baseless violence without even a story, I can't recommend HM2 any more than I already do. Full of blood and gore and guns, it's a fun way to spend an afternoon without actually getting blood on your clothes!"

    "This is one messed up, bloody game - totally cool! I swear this game gave me nightmares after playing it for six hours straight. Play control is very tight and taut; you get used to it pretty quick and you'll have to once you advance in the game. Graphics are also spectacular, but could use a bit more change in backgrounds as it's a very dark game not only in content but color. Worth a shot to add to your collection!"

    "GTA: San Andreas definitely fits the bill for a violent game, however I have one problem with this title. It is not a game on Steam. Though I believe this would be a great option for someone on the Android platform this isn't useful for me as I am looking for something that I can play on PC and this does not fit the bill. "

    "Max Payne is not a good solution to violent games on Steam. It is as violent as the rest of them. I found myself shooting anything that moves as I ran around the streets of New York as Max. Though I may be playing as a “police officer” this game is still very violent and inappropriate for young children."

    "I don't really think this helps any sort of problem. I think it actually brings more violence into the world and gives people ideas that they might not have had before. I do like that the whole thing is set in the 1980's which was a good era and Miami is a fun place for them to set this story in."

    ">observer_ is quite possibly the best video game of its kind. It takes place in a future, where criminals rule the world. Your mission is to take on the role of law enforcement and hack them into extinction. This is a must play for any gamer."

    "I like the Resident Evil movies and the games series but I would not call the 7 the best violent game on Steam. The game has a very nice nice graphics since it is just released on Jan 2017 but the game lack of a good story. There are even better games in the Resident Evil games series than this one."
