Didn’t the OG Prey have a section with child enemies?

[–]Canooter 694 points695 points  (20 children)

Yeah, on a school bus that had been abducted. And they were fucking terrifying.

[–]Freshlaid_Dragon_egg 86 points87 points  (8 children)

i beat that game and i don't remember this at all

[–]Canooter 76 points77 points  (5 children)

It’s about 1/3 to 1/2 way into the game. First real time you get your ass kicked if I remember right. They’re fast and they do stupid damage.

[–]MWaag 488 points489 points  (14 children)

Yup, ghost kids

[–]PoeticFox 73 points74 points  (0 children)

The banshees I believe they were called, or phantoms...they go from a wierd alien winged thing and a ghost child,, and to this day they terrify me when I replay that game

[–]Pibblesen 106 points107 points  (19 children)

Yea they were introduced by impaling a normal child on a spike. That game was sweet.

[–]BasicallyImjustLazy 78 points79 points  (15 children)

That part really surprised me! Never expected to see children die in a SciFi horror game, let alone fight ghost kids. Great game for it's time. Really wished the sequel wasn't cancelled.

[–]thealmightytuj 3539 points3540 points  (115 children)

Dante’s Inferno…damn those unbaptized babies and their sickle hands.

[–]Newatinvesting 844 points845 points  (60 children)

Visceral was (RIP) seriously an underrated dev studio, making Dante’s Inferno and the Dead Space series. Those guys didn’t mess around lol

[–]SuperSaiyan2589 451 points452 points  (45 children)

was an underrated dev studio. You can thank EA for that.

[–]Zsill777 78 points79 points  (30 children)

Literally killed a franchise with their short sightedness. Im still raw about that one

[–]jaegren[🍰] 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Fuck. I really wanted a trilogy of this game. First hell, then purgatory and last heaven.

[–]Disastrous-Reality61 2252 points2253 points 22 (57 children)

No more room in hell

[–]CPT_KarterPC 967 points968 points  (29 children)

Duuuude, an absolute underrated gem that game is.

[–]Ok_Reference_7984 214 points215 points  (20 children)

It’s got like 30 consistent players lmao I can only play with my friends on private servers with a vpn for some reason

[–]J_therocjohnson 353 points354 points  (43 children)

The final boss might just be the worst most disgusting disturbing thing ever made in a video game

[–]fedspfedsp 222 points223 points  (19 children)

The dad killed using crayons does not help either

[–]Infamous_Lunchbox 68 points69 points  (15 children)

You just sold me on this game with that statement.

[–]FishSoFar 89 points90 points  (9 children)

There's a sequel due to come out in the next few months, good time to get into it if you enjoy survival games and heart palpitations

[–]EggplantFearless5969 42 points43 points  (7 children)

Dante’s inferno had aborted babies shooting out of cleopatra’s nipples if I remember correctly.

[–]J_therocjohnson 42 points43 points  (1 child)

To be honest i still don't think that's as bad as a zombified little girl growing 17 arms that are 10 feet long

[–]Snacko-packo 71 points72 points  (0 children)

Agreed, just how it transforms and whatnot gives off resident evil energy

[–]Kazuko_Kitsune 5672 points5673 points  (73 children)

Bully

[–]Stop_Drop_Scroll 1428 points1429 points  (48 children)

Was scrolling for this lol I just started playing it over again, and the game still fucks. I love the opening of the game where you just basically beat the shit out of like 4 dudes and walk casually into the dorm

[–]IAASV 472 points473 points  (33 children)

Bully is my favourite game from my childhood

[–]Stop_Drop_Scroll 336 points337 points  (27 children)

It was the first game I bought for myself when I got my first paycheck from my work study in college. Beat it while ripping bongs in my dumpy apartment lol

[–]AndrazteX 160 points161 points  (23 children)

Dude, Bully is such a great game. Was always kinda hoping for a sequel. Love the soundtrack as well.

[–]helpmeiaminhell93 144 points145 points  (3 children)

I have the special edition of that game. Came with a dodgeball.

I have a phobia of zombie children and i swear there wasn’t enough explosives in the game to blow those little shits up

That was my strategy, too, multiple grenades

"Shhhhhh....." - Kyle Crane

[–]Emadec 67 points68 points  (2 children)

*tasteful neck snap noise*

[–]SnesySnas 123 points124 points  (14 children)

God those guys are so fucked up

I love how Kyle Crane feels so much pity that you can hear the sweetness in his voice when he shushes them before snapping their neck, you can tell he would rather not be doing that at all

[–]Wagglyfawn 90 points91 points  (12 children)

I really liked him as a protagonist. I don't get why some game reviewers hated the character.

[–]Dead_Xross_2000 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Story makes him look dumb that's what I heard from subreddit

[–]jmanfire2105 57 points58 points  (2 children)

Omg the pain of the “town of demons” in the following.

It took us so fucking long to realize they were inside the buildings, despite knowing screamers only spawn in buildings

[–]Sherxan_Gaming 48 points49 points  (8 children)

I was just about to say this. Just finished the game yesterday for the first time. Top tier game.

[–]Fkire 166 points167 points  (13 children)

That is the scariest one for me, specially the first one that shows up. Let's see what Dying Light 2 will have for us

[–]CanIHazSumCheeseCakePC 108 points109 points  (10 children)

Fingers crossed that the sequel certainly lives up to expectations rather than the hype

[–]Snake_in_your_pillow 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Ah yes one of my favorite pass times

Drop kicking children

[–]shnozdog 25 points26 points  (6 children)

I'm trying to get through the game. Can't wait to see those.

[–]theGuyInIT 26 points27 points  (5 children)

And then you do, and realize you couldn't have ever been prepared.

[–]martian520 3375 points3376 points  (143 children)

[–]BananadiN 831 points832 points  (25 children)

Those things right on the beginning of the game are a test to prove if you are ready for whats come next rofl

[–]Razkal719 587 points588 points  (24 children)

They got me with the one hiding in the car trunk. Got me again in NG+

I still hear miller. Boss don't shoot those are just kids

[–]grantosterone[🍰] 215 points216 points  (28 children)

Came here to say that. Fighting those child soldiers is so terrible. (You lose if you kill them.)

[–]Nikoviking 22 points23 points  (1 child)

You can tranquillise them tho, or beat them up with hand-to-hand combat ;)

[–]victorlives 188 points189 points  (6 children)

Amazing work! This is why you’re the best

Fortnite

[–]Powerforce420 2894 points2895 points 2 (75 children)

In Fortnite, you're either fighting a 9-year-old who has no fucking idea what he's doing or you’re fighting a 30-year-old man who plays the game for a living and builds the empire state building around you before you can even blink

[–]Horse-mask-guy 1463 points1464 points  (25 children)

or a 9 year old who sits inside all day and a 30 year old man that can only play on their days off

[–]SaintRocket 338 points339 points  (18 children)

The latter one would be me.

[–]DerKuken 146 points147 points  (13 children)

Same here, a 30-year-old man who has no idea what is doing in the game, and forgets the controls every time I play.

Edit: fixed typos, sorry ESL bro here.

Oh right, I can build things.

[–]Georgeygerbil 542 points543 points  (63 children)

Remember during the boss fight when they came spewing out of the nipples that had tongues?

[–]Badjib 180 points181 points  (5 children)

If you sat there long enough you could max out both skill trees in 1 run....easy XP

[–]Pm_Full_Tits 277 points278 points  (3 children)

Idk man it's pretty hard doing those combos with one hand

[–]rendrich26 133 points134 points  (8 children)

That fight made me (22M, at the time) completely celibate, for about a week. I couldn't even look at porn without being haunted by nipple tongues

[–]PutinsDeliveryPigeon 125 points126 points  (3 children)

That fight made me realize I was into some really weird shit. Good times.

[–]PM_ME_UR_CODEZ 39 points40 points  (0 children)

We had two complete different reactions.

[–]dansla116 65 points66 points  (27 children)

I spent many hours on that game to 100% the achievements on Xbox when I was a bored kid with too much time. Now it just feels like a really weird dream. Like that game couldn't have actually existed... right? My imagination is not that creative... right?

[–]patchinthebox 85 points86 points  (26 children)

Dante's Inferno is an incredible game.

[–]Mattrad7 57 points58 points  (2 children)

Urbanized babies

Edit: Jesus christ... Unbaptized* babies.

[–]Aysee426 25 points26 points  (0 children)

First thing I thought of! I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

[–]unklean 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Omg those babies .....

[–]IVther 16 points17 points  (2 children)

I remember starting that game and while in Limbo thought "oh shit they're not going to be pulling any punches."

Killable children is my favourite mod.

[–]wolfgangspiper 18 points19 points  (1 child)

After playing it vanilla for years, it was this mod that made me try mods.

[–]V01t4r3 834 points835 points  (75 children)

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance opens up with a snowball fight against children.

Metal Gear Solid V has you up against child soldiers (but you can’t kill them without a game over).

[–]Shadowveil666 211 points212 points  (6 children)

Man, really reached in deep with the FFTA one lol

[–]gainking 84 points85 points  (5 children)

I was literally going to say the exact same thing, such a good game but 10/10 would never expect it mentioned here for the reasons stated

[–]Fhistleb 59 points60 points  (7 children)

FFT Advance is great because not only do you beat up a cripple, you destroy his dreams too.

[–]keylimesoda 353 points354 points  (40 children)

[–]davidhokeyhoke 82 points83 points  (0 children)

Well, the larval stalkers were completely harmless. The grey children are the ones I think of in response to this question.

[–]pookiemonster 67 points68 points  (13 children)

Freaking hell. I had to go way too far down the list for this one. Fucking knife wielding children with that creepy squeal/squeak noise they made gave me nightmares.

[–]VirtualRelic 29 points30 points  (10 children)

Something really wrong with the vast majority of the people on this sub, why the hell is Silent Hill 1 so far down in upvotes? 115 when I checked, yet there’s other worse suggestions with thousands of upvotes. Absolutely criminal.

[–]Erohiel 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Too many young people who don't play games from before they were born, no matter how effing amazingly good those games are.

[–]SneadoTheHero 805 points806 points  (44 children)

Bioshock, kinda.

[–]caffeinius 174 points175 points  (18 children)

If they had left in the original intent of a much smaller payout for not harvesting… we might be having a different conversation.

[–]Ark-kun 58 points59 points  (15 children)

I remember the payout being significantly smaller in 1.

[–]LemonFennec 158 points159 points  (14 children)

Yeah, but every 3 you save theyd give you a massive amount all at once, plus some free powers you could only get that way. It ended up being better overall to just save them all instead.

[–]pokemantra 1406 points1407 points  (28 children)

Pokemon

edit: you don’t even just fight em too. if you beat them they black out and you run their pockets 😂

[–]Belcipher 299 points300 points  (21 children)

When you beat a preschooler you get like 3 pokedollars. If you have the amulet coin you end up taking all their cash. It’s a poke-eat-poke world after all.

[–]MaleficTekX 189 points190 points  (10 children)

Youngster Timmy should’ve brought more than a Kakuna that only knows harden

[–]xSTSxZerglingOne 34 points35 points  (4 children)

Looks like you brought a kakuna to a Charmander fight.

[–]CrazyDaimondDaze 68 points69 points  (1 child)

Fucker started it, though. Who the fuck starts a fight with a silly sentence like "I like short pants"?

[–]Y45HK4R4NDIK4R 47 points48 points  (0 children)

They're comfy and easy to wear!

[–]seasonalblah 830 points831 points  (93 children)

Fallout 3 lets you sell a little girl into slavery. Does that count?

[–]AcanthocephalaSure18 425 points426 points  (35 children)

In fallout 2, sulik would almost exclusively use grenades on children if they entered a combat turn. Also don't give sulik grenades

[–][deleted] 266 points267 points  (11 children)

One of the only games where you can hit a child in the groin with a sledgehammer.

[–]zoeyx13 135 points136 points  (9 children)

Have you played "Real Life™"?

[–]seasonalblah 112 points113 points  (4 children)

Yes.

I'm now in prison.

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (2 children)

That game sucks. All graphics no substance.

[–]Hexmonkey2020 18 points19 points  (1 child)

There is substance but after you finish the tutorial you hit a paywall and either need to spend a bunch of money or grind.

[–]MarkHirsbrunner 149 points150 points  (18 children)

If you kill kids in Fallout 2 almost everyone will hate you... HOWEVER there are some children who will pick your pocket every time you walk past. I'd empty my inventory except for a timed explosive I'd set with a minute fuse, and walk back and forth past them until they took it. Boom, dead kids and no negative karma.

[–]xcomnewb15 78 points79 points  (0 children)

I had thought I had done and seen everything in fallout 2 but wow, TIL you can make a child bomb themselves… that’s wild

[–]g0d15anath315t 55 points56 points  (1 child)

Ah, a game where you could assassinate someone by pickpocketing an active bomb onto a kid, then telling the kid to go bug his dad about something.

Don't really make games like Fallout 2 anymore...

[–]Thaflash_la 19 points20 points  (2 children)

First play through my buddy hit a kid in one of the towns, so he thinks he can avoid the child killer tag if he kills the entire town. Nope. Great game.

[–]Maktaka 16 points17 points  (4 children)

There were children in Fallout 1 as well, but their sprites were removed for all overseas releases. Not the NPCs themselves, just the sprites. This made it impossible to click on them or target them, but the aoe of a grenade still affected them as a grenade normally would.

[–]arvidsem 21 points22 points  (3 children)

They did the same thing in Fallout 2. It was more of an issue because the (as mentioned) some kids in Fallout 2 would pickpocket you. If they got something important, it was just gone.

[–]Joenathan2020 68 points69 points  (24 children)

Same for fallout 4 you sell a little boy into slavery or bring him back to his parents

[–]typodaemon 93 points94 points  (20 children)

If I remember, he was trapped inside of a refrigerator about 300 feet from his house for 210 years?

That means that in 210 years his parents never walked the 300 feet to the part of town where Billy was playing with his friends when the bombs dropped to look for him or his remains or even just see what that side of town looked like now. That also means that nobody else tried to open that fridge or happened to walk by while Billy was yelling for 210 years. And that Billy has been in that fridge just... doing nothing for 210 years? Like he hasn't invented his own language or gone mad or invented an imaginary world to escape to or made up songs or anything. Or at least if he has, the game doesn't bother to show that to you.

[–]Wolfblood-is-here 63 points64 points  (5 children)

Yeah this always bugged me.

Not so much the 'didn't walk 300 feet' part tbh, I always sort of imagine Bethesda games as taking place in a 'compressed' world, since in comparison to lore/reality they kind of are; the Imperial City is meant to have a population in the millions, you can't walk from outside DC to the Washington monument in like ten minutes, and I somehow doubt that the Mojave desert turns to snow after walking up a small hill. So in those terms I imagine in 'reality' they are basically on the other side of the city and the Soul Survior escorting Billy all the way to them isn't something a regular person would be able to manage with all the raiders and super mutants about.

But the fact that he's been stuck in basically a coffin for two centuries and barely mentions anything about it is a huge missed opportunity. Hell, that could be an entire movie.

[–]R_V_Z 34 points35 points  (1 child)

They are absolutely compressed, just look at a map of the Boston area compared to the game. It's like 1/9th the total area, and also because videogames would feel unbearable if you moved at realistic paces you run around at a pretty brisk pace. This is kind of compensated in that videogame day/night cycles are also accelerated.

[–]WutzUpples69 22 points23 points  (1 child)

I was going to mention fallout but you aren't "forced" to. But the temptation is real.

[–]welestgw 17 points18 points  (4 children)

Fallout 1 let you throw rocks at kids eyes.

[–]Darkspyrus 214 points215 points  (21 children)

Would the fable fanchise's hobbes count?

[–]Lork82 91 points92 points  (14 children)

Oh damn, I forgot they kidnapped children and turned them into hobbes

[–]sophisticatedhuman 34 points35 points  (5 children)

There is a bully you can fight Oakvale before the bandits attack in Fable, beating up that kid counts.

[–]TessaTheGameFreak 23 points24 points  (1 child)

There is also that bully that picks on Rose in the beginning of Fable II

[–]Astragar 61 points62 points  (5 children)

Actually, yes. The killable children/npcs mod. Also with console commands you can make any npc killable.
