15 Vehicular Combat Games with Brutal Pedestrian Slaughters
You probably know Carmageddon, one of the wildest games ever made and also one of the pinnacles of the car combat genre. A video game known by people even if they never played it, thanks to its scandalous reputation. However, this game is far from solely being the “nasty racing game where you have to crush pedestrians” that many media and politicians wanted to ban.
Stainless Games launched in 1997 the first installment of one of the best known franchises of the 90s and early 2000s under a peculiar proposal in which we had to drive our car, with some inspiration in movies like ‘Mad Max’ or ‘Death Race 2000’, through urban environments with the maximum that entails, running over everything that gets in our way, and yes, that included innocent pedestrians.
The impact of the title was such that it was censored in many countries and had a version for PlayStation in which humans and their blood were properly replaced by zombies, and yet the controversy has accompanied the franchise since its birth throughout the more than 6 projects under the same approach.
As Max Damage and his powerful car, or as Die Anna and her fast vehicle, we had to crown the various races either by accumulating checkpoints, either by destroying pedestrians or by killing the cars of the other competitors, these being premises that have been maintained throughout the franchise with the corresponding improvements to each installment.
Beyond the obvious controversies, Carmageddon is the most popular game in making fun of pedestrian traffic accidents, but there are many more games of this style that influenced Carmageddon, as well as later games influenced by the success of the title from Stainless Games. Let’s have a bloody race and get to know them!

⚠️ All gameplay recording, game curation and opinions included in this video, as well as editing is completely done by me
Bits & Beats creates videos about the history of video games. In this channel you’ll find comparisons, retrospectives, technical analysis, but, mostly, game curations with the idea of having an important task of preserving video games, and make them relevant to society at large.
Curation isn’t just about digging up neat games, but it’s also about preservation, interpretation, and using one’s knowledge to make it relevant to people. With my videos I want older gamers to look back and remember the influence of video games on their lives, and new gamers to understand the larger context of the series they’re playing for the first time today.
I put significant time and creative effort into each one of my videos, including research, digging into archives, playing video games and recording hours of footage, selecting specific clips, writing reviews for each title, and making a very careful video editing in the way to transmit both educational and entertaining values to my audience. Every video takes a lot of hours to produce, because I strive to give my audience a consistent, high-quality content.
Fidelity and preservation of the video games is essential in Bits & Beats, so the recordings are made with the highest bitrate quality. It is done this way to preserve original game look and sound through modern footage, with no superfluous additions. I recommend you watch the video at 4K and 60 frames per second to get the best possible viewing experience.
I hope you enjoy my videos and find them useful!
