One of the elements of classic horror is that when the horrible thing you are dreading finally happens, it happens in a way far more gruesome than you expect. Visceral Games got this part right so many times in its Dead Space series that I wonder if I've become desensitized to alien dismemberment at this point. Even if I have, I am still disturbed by watching series protagonist Isaac Clarke meet his end, time and time again.
The list of memorable player deaths in Dead Space and its sequels are sickening. So, let's revel in it and count down the best of the bunch.
10) Death by Infector fail - Dead Space
I love how these guys are all set on mind control and then their instincts get the best of them, so they say, "Ah, screw it! I'm just going to take his head off. Joy!"
9) Death by Machine - Dead Space 3
Every now and again, Isaac will stumble into a quick, pointless death by machine. At times, it can be comical how easily he explodes. I always expect "Ludicrous gibs!" text to pop-up.
8) Death by vomit - Dead Space 2
The manners of these necromorphs!
7) Death by hunter - Dead Space
The hunter is the blue collar alien predator. You can always count on him to appear and brutally dismember Isaac, regardless of series entry.
6) Death by deepthroat - Dead Space 2
... you know ... I don't think I'm going to touch this one.
5) Death by improper kissing technique - Dead Space 3
This is why you should read some eHow articles before going on your first date. Also, remember: If she clears her throat two times in the first hour of the date that means she is totally begging to marry you, brah!
4) Death by screwdriver - Dead Space 2
It's not often that other humans interact with Isaac. This scene suggests that may be a good thing.
3) Death by angry space babies - Dead Space 2
Isaac Clarke's misadventure in babysitting makes a strong argument for why you should leave angry space babies the hell alone.
2) Death by kung fu spider - Dead Space 3
Maybe laughter wasn't what Visceral were going for with this death, but I can't help but laugh at a spider that restlessly beats the hell out of Isaac. Reminds me of that They Live fight scene that goes on and on for 5+ minutes. The laughter soon turns to disgust as the spider crawls into Isaac's mouth. Gross!
1) Death by eye exam - Dead Space 2
I have a fear of things touching my eyes, and I suspect this is a shared feeling. I could never wear eye contacts because I would just freak out when trying to put them on. So, this death -- arguably the most memorable scene in the series and even games of the past 3 years -- hits a particular nerve.

Pixie The Fairy Off to the new job shortly. Dunno if it's something I want long term, but I can't complain about the money. New laptop, phone, and consoles could be weeks away :DJohnSmith123 http://destructivecreations.pl/isdefense/
/Hatred devs really like the controversy I guess.The Dyslexic Laywer Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.StriderHoang Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than BayoJed Whitaker Streaming some Unravel then perhaps some Firewatch. Don't not come.

Parismio I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3? Larxinostic I swear, it makes sense in context..... Kinda. Hmmm. Okay, not so much.
