Top 10 Video Games for Fans of the Heroic Bloodshed genre and director John Woo to Play [Linwood’s Picks]
Much like many other fans of the Heroic Bloodshed genre, my first introduction to it was through John Woo’s critically acclaimed masterpiece ‘Hard Boiled’, the first two entries of the ‘A Better Tomorrow’ trilogy, and ‘The Killer’. His style has continued to influence action cinema and his trademarks such as dual-wielding guns, were at one point commonplace in many shooters. Seeing as how there are no lists that are dedicated to his strong presence during this era of gaming, I decided to make a list of my Top 10 video games that showcase the impact that his directorial style and panache for violence have had.
