If you’ve played House of the Dead: Overkill then you know that the game isn’t known for its poetic dialogue, or ground breaking story. In fact, both are something out of a 70’s camp horror movie. Of course, no 70’s horror movie had this much swearing in it.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records: Gamer’s Edition 2009, House of the Dead: Overkill has set the record for most swearing ever in a video game. The experts at Guinness counted 189 uses of the word fuck. If you take all the dialogue of the game and count out the f-word, you’ll see it’s used once per minute. Or a total of three percent of the entire script.
I’m wondering if they counted the songs that play during the menu. Those repeat, so how many times you hear fuck depends how long you decide to spend on the main menu.
Congrats to HotD:Overkill, SEGA, and Headstrong Games for releasing the most profane video game in the history of the media.
I’m sure they’re proud…
