Creepy gaming urban legends to make you spook-quit your game
Nintendo There’s just something so deliciously fascinating about urban legends. It’s the fact that they could be true, but probably aren’t, but yet haven’t been disproven, that makes them so fun. That’s probably why there are pages upon pages stories and CreepyPastas about legends across all sorts of media. They make our imaginations soar.When it comes to gaming, there are tons of them, hidden in the pixels and lines of code. Maybe they’re real, maybe they’re not. Who even knows? All we know, is that they’re out there for us to find. We’ve already covered some in a post earlier this year HERE, but I found more that get my goosebumps a-tinglin’
Nintendo Pokemon Creepy Black
This urban legend involved a bootlegged version of Pokemon Red, which came in a solid black cartridge. In it, you fight with a ghostly Pokemon named Ghost, who freezes it’s opponents with fear, and curses them.The game would then fast forward you into an older version of yourself and you’d find yourself alone in a cemetery, surrounded by the tombstones of cursed trainers. Then ghost would come for you, show you the all the defeated Pokemon you cursed, then curse you and delete your file.
EA Sports The Madden Curse
If you take the strange beliefs that we have as gamers, and mix them in with the general superstitious nature of athletes, you get this urban legend, which can’t really be ignored.Much like the Sports Illustrated curse, people believe that players who show up on the cover of a Madden title, end up with a huge injury, a misfortune or a shitty season. Examples include Garrison Hearst, Rob Gronkowski and Daunte Culpepper, but some other stars have emerged unscathed, namely Tom Brady. Sure, he didn’t win the last Super Bowl, but it wasn’t a huge catastrophe. Over the past 20 years, I’d say the curse has struck 70% of the time, which aren’t bad odds.
Nintendo Pokemon Snap Haunting
This is an odd CreepyPasta story that tells of an old, stored away cartridge of the N64’s Pokemon Snap. Generally, a lighthearted game, this one is really spooky.The entire game is covered with these odd purple streaks, and when it starts, you encounter a disturbing Professor Oak, with soulless, black eyes. Most of the other Pokemon had black eyes as well. There’s also a lava stage with no soundtrack, just the screams of Pokemon. You’re then challenged and tortured by a vengeful Electrode, and submerged in lava.
Definitely not family friendly.
Sega The corrupted Sonic Game
Another CreepyPasta tells a true story of a game where our friendly hedgehog gets corrupted with bloody demonic black eyes and razor-sharp fangs. This Sonic drags people into his game and torments Knuckles and Tails. Even creepier, supposedly a playable .exe file exists out there.You get to experience a glitchy, dark and twisted version of the original game, where you play as Tales, Knuckles and Dr. Robotnik, while Sonic stalks you.
Nintendo The super dark Super Mario 64 sequel
This title was pretty fun and kid-friendly, but there’s a dark legend behind its sequel. One of the original concepts was to have a dark city environments, spooky houses and a sinister boss battle that had a super-sized version of Bowser that defeated you in a strange way.A lot of these spooky elements ended up in Luigi’s Mansion, but I wonder what this original sequel could have been?
Epic stream The mysterious Pale Luna
This game doesn’t rely on graphics to scare you, but the huge mystery behind it. This text-based adventure takes you through forest, while you hold a rope and a shovel. All the while, you’re followed by the ominous “Pale Luna,” who creepily smiles every time you do something she likes.The game ends when you use your shovel at a certain location to dig, and you find a sequence of numbers. One mysterious gamer said that he deciphered them to be coordinates, which led to a real crime scene of a missing girl.
Blizzard The eerie and unexplainable Morrowmind mod
This urban legend comes from an actual, payable mod of The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowmind. As you walk around and explore, you see that a lot of the game’s NPCs are lying dead. The ones that aren’t, stare up into the night sky and tell you to “watch the sky.”People who’ve played, report brief glimpses of a shadowy figure that lurks and follows them from out of sight. Even more unsettling, is that some claim to have seen that same figure in real life after playing the game. As if if climbed out of their console, Samara-from-the-ring-style.
Toho The haunted NES Godzilla game
According to the internet, the Godzilla: Monster of Monsters game on the NES was haunted. There’s a lot of various creepy moments, but the general summary is that there’s an evil creature that stalks Godzilla, floating red eyes and distorted red fragments throughout several levels.
Blizzard The demonic children of Goldshire in WoW
Players of this game have reported a group of 6 NPC kids, that they refer to as ‘creepy children.’ They pretty much just stand around at various locations in town, and always seem to make the shape of a Pentagram.Even creepier, if you walk to stand in the middle of the formation, you hear screams, growls and crying. Not sure why you’d do this, but there you go. Evil kids.
Nintendo The creepy shadow people of Super Mario Galaxy 2
In the game’s Shiverburn Galaxy, there’s a certain point where you can look up at a mountain range and if you look hard enough, you can see 3 creepy silhouettes staring at you.So what are they? One fan did some digging and in the official game files, these things are labelled as “Hell Valley Sky Trees,” which is one hell of a creepy name. Even weirder, Nintendo won’t comment on them.
Microsoft The headless Halo ghosts
There are talks online about odd avatars popping up in Halo 2, 3 and Reach’s online multiplayer sessions. What makes them odd is that sometimes they’re missing heads, they behave erratically, have no scoreboard of gamertag info and will attack if you get too close.Sure it might just be clever modders or a random glitch, but what if it isn’t?
Nintendo Luigi committed suicide and is in purgatory
What else could explain his odd series of games? There are ghostly themes, hallucinations, a lack of shadow for Luigi, a mysteriously ringing phone and finally, the swinging shadow.
Square In Final Fantasy VIII, Squall is dead
If you’ve played this game, you’ll remember there’s a part where Squall and Edea are battling, and an ice spike is heaved at the hero. He falls from the impact, and the first disc ends.When you launch the second disc, he awakes in a chamber and is healed from a devastating wound. The theory suggests that he died, and the rest of the game is a post mortem hallucination. Think about it. The game gets more surreal on disc 2, and there’s no way a normal person could survive such a devastating injury.
Valve Portal’s AI is meant to resemble a bound human being hanging upside-down
The creators discount these claims, however. They say that the AI guide, GLaDos is supposed to look like the Roman Goddess Venus. Yet, when you look at it from certain angles, it deliberately looks like a human figure hanging upside-down, who’s arms are bound and mouth is taped shut.Once you see it, you can’t unsee it.
