Amputation in video games: Hitman Absolution

Hitman Absolution perhaps holds first place for amputee characters.

The other one is Dr. Green, who is a leg amputee. Other NPCs tell a sad story about how he lost his legs with very stereotypical notion of kids who suffer grow up into psychopaths:

In general, that’s a solid game and a good addition to the series canon. Give it a go.
