Top 10 - Executions/Takedowns/Fatalities

Tomb Raider – Pick Axe

Lara Croft has quite a few different execution moves in the latest Tomb Raider, but the pickaxe is by far the best.  Upgrade your pickaxe to the highest grade and watch her effortlessly bring down enemy after enemy.

God of War III – Cyclops Eye Removal

I could easily make this Top 10 just on Kratos’ execution moves, but I have settled or just one.  What a satisfying feeling it is to pull out a Cyclops’s solitary eye, and proceed to be absolutely saturated in his blood.

Dark Souls – Back Stab

Maybe not quite an execution, but it is hard not to kill the enemy in one hit with this critical attack. ( I learnt that the hard way)

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dragon Executions

With the amount of dragons that you have to take on it’s only right that there is a great execution move to finish them off.

The Last of Us – Knee to the Face

There are a massive amount of executions available in The Last of Us, but you cant go past knocking an infected into a wall and knee there head into oblivion.

Mortal Kombat I – Sub Zero’s Spine Rip

Also known as the ESRB-Maker, Sub Zero’s original fatality gets the blood pumping… all over the floor.  This has to be my favourite fatality of all time.

Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City – Beltway’s Sticky Bomb to the Face

What could possibly be more ridiculous and over the top than shoving a sticky bomb onto the face of your enemy and watch they try to claw it off before the inevitable bomb? Nothing!  

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning – Fate Shift

You already feel pretty overpowered in Kingdoms of Amalur, but entering Reckoning mode mid-battle and ending your enemy’s lives with a Fate Blade does wonders for your soul.

Sleeping Dogs – Big Smile Lee and the Ice Chipper

There are so many amazing executions that Wei performs throughout the game, slamming big smile lee's head face first into an ice chipper has to be by far the best.

Hitman: Absolution – All of them

With an entire game based around taking down enemies, Agent 47 has no trouble making it onto my list.  His takedowns can range from: downing in shallow pools, pissing on a short wired power box, and Mexican wrestling. You pick one.
