Games that are more violent than the Grand Theft Auto series

These are some games that I have at my house that contain more violence than the GTA series, and yet have largely escaped any public criticism:

Civil War General: Robert E Lee This computer game has the player attempting to perserve the institution of slavery by waging war against the lawful authority of the Federal government.

Civilization III The player can rule over despotic and communist regimes, extort payment from neighboring countries, and even launch ICBM's without provocation.

Star Wars Battlefront This console game's Galactic Conquest mode features the Death Star, which the player can use to blow up planets that he would rather not bother conquering.

    Maybe that's why I prefer games like:
    AGE OF EMPIRES (I'm a history buff)
    ARMORED CORE (big honking mecha stomping about with tons of ordinance),
    DOOM II (lots of mutants - reminds me of my neighborhood),
    QUAKE 2 (ditto)
    RAINBOW SIX (save hostages, shoot terrorists - what's there not to like?)

    Of course, there IS always Crash Bandicoot, Tetris,and Monopoly.
