Top 6 Serial Killers in Video Games!

Serial Killer X – Condemned Series

SK1

Leland Vanhorn, also known by the monicker Serial Killer X, is responsible for some truly horrific stuff. His modus operandi involves stalking and murdering his fellow serial killers using the same methods they would use on their own victims.

SKX is adept in the art of murder, and for him, it’s most definitely an art. Some creative types express themselves through poetry or painting — this guy prefers the medium of cryptic messages scrawled in blood and corpses that he would display in gruesome fashion. This guy gave Ethan some particularly memorable crime scenes to investigate.

Vanhorn had already racked up an impressive body count before the events in Criminal Origins, and that continued through Bloodshot, where he seemed to take pleasure in toying with Ethan. He had claimed about two dozen lives by the time the credits start rolling in Bloodshot, including over half a dozen serial killers.

    You’re forgetting Albert Wesker.

    • Wesker’s a sociopath, there’s no denying that, but take away the deaths he’s indirectly caused by being a gargantuan dickhead and how many murders are we actually left with? He’s more the type who would employ a serial killer to do his bidding, rather than do anything that might get his hands dirty.

        I….well….basically…
        Fuck it.

        Well what about Jules Merit from Syndicate 2012? All the agents are remorseless murder machines, true, but he’s the only one that gets filed as a sociopath even by his own company. Consider the fact that all the agents dole out bullets personally, and all the moments you share with him early in the game casually just shooting people in the face even when it wasn’t completely necessary.

    Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal, Jacket from Hotline Miami, and I guess the Joker counts right? That’s video game killers I can think of on the top of my head not mentioned here.

  • Fantasma George

    You picked Walter Sullivan over Adachi?!

  • ThunderDragoon

    So happy to see the Origami Killer and The Groom on here. 😀

    Would Pyramidhead from Silent Hill series count??

  • Captain Underpants

    Glad to see Manhunt get some love. Definitely my favorite stalk n kill game. Which brings me to my nominee: Agent 47

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    Kudos for going with the Origami Killer from Heavy Rain. Great story. Great game.

    • KSE1977

      I agree with you up to the point of finding out who the killer was. Why they would go to such lengths only to get cheap and kind of cheat with the character revealed as the killer is rather unbearable for me.

    Would Ruvik from Evil Within qualify as a serial killer?

  • Henry Marden

    Good list.

    Re: Heavy Rain: Shaun was taken from a park. Jason was the son in the mall who got hit by the car outside the mall.
