Most game scenarios inherently revolve around physical conflict and, because of this, they wind up containing a morbid amount of death. It’s absolutely everywhere in gaming, but don’t fool yourself into thinking that it is a straight binary. There are definitely degrees of death. Here are ten of the worst ways to go in a game.
1. Getting Stuck With A Plasma Grenade
I've been lead to believe over the years that most deaths through violence are quick. In FPS titles, you think this would be doubly so, with a swift headshot often being the end of you in the ever competitive online arena. Halo subverted this by introducing the sticky plasma grenade. Players are always aware when they get hit by one of these, and once it's on there's no going back. You just have to wait the few seconds out before you meet your demise. The torture is in knowing that death is imminent.
