‘Manhunt’ (Snuff-driven gameplay)

Truth is stranger than fiction when it comes to certain violent video games. Some take things so far that their own developers are haunted by it. For Rockstar Games, it was its cult classic “Manhunt.” Launched in 2003, this snuff-driven stealth game had the player perform extremely gory kills on pursuers as part of a deadly game of cat and mouse. The game’s focus was so divisive, it almost sparked a mutiny by devs which was ironic given they were also the ones behind the infamous “GTA” series.
