@flacracker: I''ve seen The Raid 1 and Dredd. the similarities begin and end with the skyscraper idea. The Raid has a squad and Dredd has that female partner.
Have you seen Punisher War Zone? It's brilliant, too.
Also, see Raid 2. The hero is more alone and against a very brutal world. No skyscraper, but don't let that deter you. More like Infernal Affairs this time around. It's also the best action movie in a decade.
Bulletstorm, Shadow Warrior, and Wolfenstein The New Order have showed you can have one-liner muscular action hero homage jocks and give them actual character with even complexity that you can root for, than whatever disgusting abuse/misogyny was in DNF.
Yeah, there's some fucked up things in the Deponia series - It gets more extreme over the course of the series. Most of what you listed is from the third game. One other thing in the third game that was on the bad taste side of things: a psychiatrist prescribes a noose to one of his patients =|
Also, poor digital dolphins :( That made me feel the worst out of all the things though. I like dolphins.
Damn, that's real bad. I thought these games were just charming looking, had no idea it'd be some demented shock exploitation stuff?! I don't think even Manhunt goes as far as this.
