Detroit Prosecutor Issues (outdated) List of 10 Violent Games to Avoid For the Holidays

Detroit is the second most dangerous city in America, according to 2006 crime statistics.

Top Prosecutor Kym Worthy (left) thinks violent video games may play a role. As reported by the Detroit News, Worthy has issued her 3rd annual list of the Top 10 Most Violent Games. Of the titles, she said:

It’s no wonder we’re seeing the crimes we’re seeing lately…  Please do not buy these video games and bring them into your home. It desensitizes [children] to violent acts.

From the Detroit News article:

Grand Theft Auto topped a list of the top 10 most violent video games… The video game “absolutely glorifies” carjacking, Worthy said, and encourages shooting, running over pedestrians and other violent acts.

Other video games on the list make a sport out of buying and selling drugs, show children witnessing the murder of their father and Rapper 50 Cent being involved in the drug underworld.

It won’t be especially difficult for parents to avoid purchasing the games on Worthy’s Top 10 List, since most of them are at least a year old; some are several years old:

1. Grand Theft Auto (last released on consoles 2004; PSP, 2006)
2. Manhunt (2004, we assume they mean 2007’s Manhunt 2)
3. Scarface (2006)
4. 50 Cent Bulletproof (2005)
5. 300  (Feb, 2007)
6. The Godfather (PS3 – March, 2007; other versions, 2006)
7. Killer-7 (2005)
8. Resident Evil 4 (Wii, PC 2007; other versions 2005)
9. God of War (2005; we assume they mean 2007’s GoW2)
10. Hitman Blood Money (2006)

GP: We understand that politicians are going to compile lists of this sort around the holiday shopping season. Is it too much to ask that they do their homework, figure out which games are actually in demand right now and offer parents guidance that is more relevant?

    NO NORMAL HEALTHY PERSON WILL BE IN ANY WAY EFFECTED BY THESE GAMES. If your some crazy, trigger happy nutter by all means take their advice, also I would advise not to buy manhunt 2, it was banned for a reason and ia actualy sheer crap to play. OTHER THAN THIS PLEASE IGNORE ALL THE MESSAGES THESE IDIOTS GIVE YOU. GAMES HAVE NO NEGATIVE EFFECT ON NORMAL HEALTHY PEOPLE.

    Wow, this is one old list. Has anyone ever heard of the game F.E.A.R.? The games main point is that it is a horror story. These are all console games, it’s like games on computers don’t even count. These are the people who need to go back to junior high, because they have no idea how to do a proper research assignment.

    […] Detroit has a bit of a crime problem and prosecutor Kym Worthy is looking to bring that down by issuing her third annual list of the “Top 10 Most Violent Games” for parents. As GamePolitics points out, the list isn’t looking to be topical or specific; wide brush strokes will do. For example, if reading literally, the original Grand Theft Auto, the original Manhunt, and last year’s Scarface round out the top three. 50 Cent Bulletproof comes in at number four — because that already forgotten 2005 title is on every any kid’s wish list for 2007. […]

    When I said “Sony’s devil machine” I was only making a little joke, kind of referencing ho many sony/apple people think Bill Gates is “the devil” I wasn’t trying to start a flame war, and I don’t consider myself a fanboy. Simply put, I have an Xbox 360, and have recently aquired a Wii. I think that there are several games on the PS3 that look excellent, like heavenly sword, Resistance, and Moterstorm. However, several of your comments reflect several errors on your part:

    “tell microsoft to stop recycling material and puting out crappy games and Ill play their system more but for now im gonna stick to my PS3 and my Wii (get your head out of mycrosofts ass and your own)

    fanboys suck “

    1.The xbox might have some games that are the same tired things we’ve been playing since Goldeneye (A game I remember fondly. Hey, that has violence! How come that didn’t make the list!) but what console dosn’t?
    2. “putting out crappy games”? WTF? Where have you been the past year? Dead Rising(Chop till you drop!), Gears of War, Mass Effect (Which I NEED) Bioshock (One of the best games EVER, and don’t you DARE say it isn’t!) and, of course, Halo 3 (You may say it’s the same game as the last two, but compare it to a turkey sandwich with turkey(Story), cheese(Features), and mayo(Multiplayer). Each is an intergral part of the sandwich. Halo CE had all three, but was lacking in cheese. Halo 2 added cheese and mayo but took out some turkey. Halo 3 added a s—load of cheese, eve more mayo, and put some of the turkey back, albiet in strange, contorted shapes. It’s essentialy the same sandwich, but it’s revamped with even more ingrediants each time. In any case, I liked it.)
    3.” Fanboys suck”? that’s an oxymoron.

    Please stop your crusade against microsoft and go on to play games, regardless of console. The GP comments section is the last place to wage a flame war. If we could direct this energy to those idiots like JT instead of each other, we could knock some sense into them. Or cause them to have a cerabral hemmorhage (yes, I know I speeled that wrong) when they see your grammer.

    nope. it’s salt lake.

    damn all those violent lds folks!

    tho, detroit does make a showing on the list down in the middle between the body bad filling cities of charleston and columbus.

    what about the most violent city in america? st. louis? not even on the list.

    so, exactly how does that reconcile with anything kim worthy has to say?

    @ Detriot Prosecutor

    With this list in mind I hope you will pick up the following title for yourself:

    -Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

    Detroit needs better prosecutors and with this courtroom simulator in hand that shows you how to conduct yourself in a professional manner it will be just a matter of time before you become the prosecutor Detroit needs to clean up its streets.

    So please, put down Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law and start playing a real game for real lawyers.

    And let’s not forget our enormous debt which lead us to the edge of a state government shutdown (but that was because a budget couldn’t be agreed upon). Low income, living in a trash heap of a house, no, that couldn’t possibly cause violence either, even if they’re too poor to afford video games; they get it from others, like some twisted contact high.

    A employee of the state of Michigan that’s an idiot? Who’d a thunk it?! I couldn’t have said it better than how jkdjr25 said it. Also, why the hell is a Prosecutor doing this? Their job is to put people in jail, not be media whores issuing stupid press releases like this. Of course, poverty and/or drug addiction couldn’t be a factor. Crack/heroin/Meth/Whatever is expensive thanks to the epic failure of our drug policies! When is the last time someone knocked over a gas station or carjacked someone so they could get their fix from the next GTA?

    On the “bright side” Dow has announced they’re cutting 1,000 jobs, granted not all of them are going to be in Michigan, but still from looking at the Midland Daily News, that’s going to probably be around 100 less jobs in the area if not more. But hey, Google is bringing 1,000 new jobs to Michigan.. Right? Right? After we’ve lost 2,000 or more by that time.

    I have an idea. Why don’t parents not buy games that are rated M for their children. That way they are set.

    On a related note, this prosecuter and various senators and congressmen need to get a message out to the parents:
    “Parents, please! Don’t buy your children cigarettes, pornography, and alcohol for Christmas. Despite pretty colors or friendly looking women on the covers, they are not for children! We are attempting to remove such things from store shelves. Also, illegal drugs are not a good idea either, mmkay?”

    It always annoys me when some know-nothing “expert” says this. No study has yet to find a link between violence and video games and yet they alone think they have the answer.

    And if being desensitized causes you to go on a killing spree, why aren’t there more murderous doctors? Who is more desensitized to blood and gore than they?

    Killer7 only ranks in at number 7? Geez, even on a list of violent games, Goichi Suda can’t catch a break.

    For the record, I think Killer7 is the most influential violent game on the list, because it’s the only one that actively encourages you to change personalities in order to kill efficiently – that sounds like a recipe for serial killer psychosis, doesn’t it? I’m pretty sure it’s also still available in stores on the used game racks; I saw a few copies going for $15 at my local Zellers. It’s actually one of the most artistic games I’ve ever played, so mature gamers with a good grasp of how their parental controls work should pick it up for the experience.

    I presume that children living in other cities around the US play more or less exactly the same games as the children in Detroit. If Detroit is more violent than a number of these other cities, it suggests there may be something wrong with Detroit, rather than video games.

    It would be pretty easy to descredit her list. As the article points out, I doubt she could answer the following about any of these games: Which system, which edition in the series, and what is the first thing that happens in the game that you find disturbing? Being as she probably never played any of these games, I can’t take her opinion seriously. It’s like writing a critique on a novel without reading a single page of it. Meanwhile, in Detroit, decapitating Hydra heads has become a popular gang initiation rite!

Aquaman for the Nintendo Gamecube just because, like the most of the games on her list, it sucks. And Deathtrap Dungeon for the Sony Playstation for its violence. Yeah, that’s perfectly outdated.

    Perhaps it is also worth nothing that Baltimore’s 250-350 murders a year are mostly drug related. There are a lot of poor people in the city, and a good number of people live in vacant housing without power. It could be interesting to know, of those murdered (and murdering), what percentage actually have access to video games?

    Incidentally, the only reason Baltimore hasn’t had a higher murder rate then Detroit for the past 30 years is because it has substantially better hospitals.

    The City of Baltimore has the “XBox gang”. Their tag is a green X, and they have a tendency to do their shooting near schools.

    Honestly the XBox (or any game system or video game) itself has nothing to do with this. If Cheese-its were more ‘street’ in the eyes of the gang members, they’d call themselves that and use big orenge triangles for their tags.

    …And it’s been two years already since his terrible game came out? Wow, time flies!

    2. Manhunt (1 or 2) I don’t have a playstation, and even if I did, I wouldn’t want that game. I have better ways to waste my time.
    3. Scarface. I’d rather see the movie. Which I’m not allowed to see. Curse you, parental units!
    4. 50 cent: bulletproof. I hate rap. Why would I by a game about a rapper?
    5. 300. I liked the movie, but as everyone knows, 99% of licesend games are crap.
    6. The godfather. I’d rather read the book. Or see the movie. or go play a good GTA knockoff.
    7. Killer-7. What? I’ve never heard of that game.
    8. RE4. Ok, this one I might want. I actually played the Demo at comic-con ’04, and it was cool. I’d run into troube with my parents, though. They have me at every turn!
    9. GOW: Yet again, I don’t own one of Sony’s devil machines. Bill Gates (and miyamoto, with a minority stake) own my soul.

    And, yeah, video games glorify drug dealing more than anything. Gee, it’s not like the rolls of money long time dealers pull out don’t make the act look lucrative.
    It’s not like seeing dealers surrounded by “popular” people in the community doesn’t look lucrative.
    It’s not like the confidence pouring off the public persona of the dealer doesn’t make them look lucrative.
    It’s not like the expensive materials (jewelry, cars, even weapons) don’t look lucrative.
    It’s not like the fear so many in the community have of the dealers doesn’t seem lucrative.
    It’s not like segments of the community don’t actually GET BEHIND the dealers when, after having bitched that the police DON’T do anything about the dealers, the community turns around and bitches that the police HARASS and violate the Civil Rights of various dealers. Sure, that doesn’t seem like a lucrative business venture.

    Video games to blame? More like you’re too bloody lazy to do a REAL job of cleaning up your city.

    The crime’s being seen “lately,” by and large the same crimes that have been seen for decades, are not caused by games but some games are, however, caused by a culture that already glorifies those crimes. When you see people stealing cars and hear about people stealing cars and talk about people stealing cars then it isn’t GTA III that “desensitizes” you to car theft.

This is her third annual list. As Gamepolitics point out, most of the games are already available in shops, being over a year old- She should have done her homework better: 1. Grand Theft Auto (last released on consoles 2004; PSP, 2006) 2. Manhunt (2004, we assume they mean 2007

    Don’t forget, Mario uses mushrooms.


    A yearly list should contain games that are in demand that year, not a few years back. Plus, the list itself smacks of someone picking the highest profile violent games and sprinkling in some lesser known ones just to appear well informed.

    It is a pity, but at least Killer-7 is getting some face time. Also, why aren’t Gears of War, Resistance, God of War 2, and Dead Rising on here?

    All of those games are rated 18+ aren’t they? i.e. children shouldn’t be playing them anyway. You know, I honestly wish I could make all ‘violent’ video games temporarily disappear for a few months. Then, when violent crime remains unaffected, people might actually realise that video games aren’t the problem.
