The most badass game ever?

We have a badass gaming protagonist thread already or something like that, but what games take the rank of most 'badass' games ever? To explain what I mean, my vote goes for Doom 2. Yes, it makes you feel pretty badass playing it as you plant a double barrelled shotgun in a demon's face and give his brain a quick dose of lead, but everything about the game just screams 'badass' to me. Chainsaws, leigons of demons, catchy rock music, chainsaws, a lone marine taking on hell itself, chainsaws, hopeless situations that turn into heart poinding firefights, chainsaws, berserk packs and in turn, punching a Cyberdemon so hard it explodes, that glorious 'KA-CLUNK-CLICK!' noise when you reload the double barelled shotgun, the BFG and one more thing I have to point out, a chainsaw on the very first level of the game.

Games can make you feel like a badass as you tear bad guys a new one, but what other games feel as badass as the badass characters that these videogame characters spawn? This thread was ispired by me while playing Doom 2 on the GBA, headphones on full blast and unknowingly to me, headbanging slightly to the gameplay as I made cheesy quotes while tearing shit up.

    I'm guessing there will be replies all over the damn place on this one.

    As for me, I'd have to say Metal Gear Solid on PS1. It was the first game where I felt all alone but in control of the situation. The whole snapping necks/shooting down Hinds/running around in boxes was a first for me too.

    Terrorists have taken over the country.

    You are the President. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the country from terrorists?

    In a mech?!

    One of those 'cheesy quotes' while playing Doom 2 was actually 'YOU ARE ALL CHUNKY MUSTARD!' when I blew a chaingunner up at close range with a double barelled shotgun blast

    What was the game where if two players won in a co-op, the President they just saved will command them to fight to the death?

    Because I go for that one.

    I have a new soccer blog The Minnow Tank. Reading it psychically kicks Sepp Blatter in the bean bag.
