Video game culture has quickly taken over the world ever since it pervaded the mainstream way back in the 20th century. There aren"t many storytelling mediums that can immerse people quite like a Clip game, where you are in control of pretty much everything that can — and will — happen to lớn a certain extent. It is more than what can be said for movies, TV shows, books, và other forms of entertainment in the khung of storytelling. In fact, this degree of immersion has led lớn a dedicated fanbase that has constantly impressed time and time again with the stupendous level of dedication they show for their passion — whether it be in the size of mods, fully-fledged fan-made games or various theories and stories surrounding their favourite games.
One such medium of người storytelling that has quickly gained traction & has pervaded the culture of video clip games to lớn a massive sầu extent are creepypastas — horror short stories which are either original in nature or add sichồng, demented twists to lớn real-life events and products in order lớn instill a sense of unease in the reader. Video games are no exception to these stories, & some of the tales that have been told in the khung of creepypastas are extremely well-written, horrifyingly descriptive sầu and will surely give you nightmares for a long time.

trăng tròn jvk1166z.esp, The Haunted Morrowind Mod

The game with this thủ thuật included had to lớn be booted in DOSBox for it to work properly. Upon booting up the game, players would notice something off about it from the start.
You constantly đại bại health no matter what, và the game already has its major characters killed off (so khổng lồ add lớn the creepy factor, their corpses wouldn"t vanish either). There"s an extra dungeon as well, và NPCs would stop responding after a while & sometimes, during the night, they"d gaze upwards & simply say, "Look at the sky." But perhaps the spookiest part of this story is that when you die, a new "Assassin" quái dị would come up to your corpse and scream horrifyingly.

A creepypasta revolving around game ripping và pirating, this story is sure khổng lồ give any pirate second thoughts when they decide lớn illegally download a game. The story speaks of a certain Japanese program that helped in facilitating this unhealthy practice. However, the games were ripped in .4 format, which led to lớn some pretty creepy things in some games.
Portal 2 would have sầu a ton of disturbing imagery, Civilization would get rather bizarre research options & Serious Sam would straight up feature absolutely grotesque things such as that of human sacrifice, amuốn other things. It"s kinda creepy to lớn think that something so simple like piracy can lead lớn such insane occurrences.
18 The Terrible Story Of Animal Crossing
Literally nothing is safe when it comes to creepypastas, including an innocent kiddy-friendly game lượt thích Animal Crossing. The series has garnered its own nibịt fanbase that absolutely love the series & anything else related khổng lồ it... but if you want your perspective on this game completely ruined, then read this bone-chilling tale.
The story takes a fresh perspective on the entire Animal Crossing saga, making a very svào argument that the game is basically propagating & reflecting gryên things like debt slavery, child labour, và a pinch of the occult & the supernatural for good measure. A great read — that is, if you don"t mind that your perception of the game will be completely ruined.
17 The Tails Doll Curse
Sonic R is a racing game phối in the Sonic universe, which was a pretty decent game for its time. For Sonic fans, the game was a nice distraction if nothing else, but it was the creepy curse associated with one of the characters that is the focus of this story. The character in question is a doll resembling Tails that is apparently cursed.
While this might sound stupid, various accounts have sầu come up regarding this doll that simply cannot be ignored.

Another version of the story claimed that by playing both "Can You Feel The Sunshine" và "Livin" In The City" in reverse, a red light would pop up in their bathroom mirror after 11pm.
But the award for the creepiest Sonic creepypasta has khổng lồ go to...
via youtube.com by Markiplier
Few creepypastas have ended up becoming so popular that they"ve sầu actually inspired people khổng lồ make fan-made games emulating exactly what happens in the story. This is what happened khổng lồ Sonic.exe, a story that started out as a somewhat badly-written pasta that — to the writer"s credit — had a pretty scary premise.
A teenager who got his hands on heavily modified PC port of the 1991 Sonic The Hedgehog game described certain events in the game that are nothing short of horrifying. In these levels, it seems that Tails, Knuckles, & Robotnik are running away from a deranged Sonic who inevitably catches up to them, leading them lớn their gryên fates as disturbing pictures of Sonic flash on the screen. A classic creepypasta if there ever was one.
15 Pale Luna
Pale Luna is a popular creepypasta revolving around a text-adventure game that gets increasingly difficult the further you progress in the game. This game is notorious for its numerous crashes & creepy occurrences, making it seem almost unplayable. However, one man managed to lớn finish this game — and uncovered something truly horrifying.
At the kết thúc of the game, the screen reveals the coordinates of a location in real life.

The only part that remained somewhat noticeable was a fresh head, covered with blonde hair.
14 The Gray Man From LSD: Dream Emulator
LSD: Dream Emulator is probably one of the weirdest games of all time — & to lớn top it all off, it actually exists. Featuring a procedural-generated world that was based off of a dream journal of one of the developers, one must wonder exactly how messed up this person"s dream could be if he thought of such inexplicable things.
Everything from the environments lớn the characters in these dreams (if one can even gọi it that) were absolutely random, having no semblance of anything logical. Perhaps the worst thing about this was the Gray Man who would kết thúc your game if you came too cthua. The interpretation of this entity"s existence in the game has been hotly contested, with people saying that he represents various hostile entities one might encounter in their dreams from time to time.
13 Luna Game (Based On My Little Pony)
The My Little Pony fanbase is unexpectedly big, & it"s hard khổng lồ gauge the exact reason for their rather unhealthy obsession with the kids" show. This has provided people with tons of opportunities to mess with these devoted fans, và one of the most effective ways lớn bởi vì this has to be the Lumãng cầu Game series that was released.
These games mask themselves as straightforward platformers, where you control one of the ponies as you progress in the game before getting assaulted by vivid and disturbing images that will surely make you shiver at the very least, if not elicit a genuine scream. This can be quite jarring, especially when one considers the fact the first game in the series was released quite inconspicuously to the general MLP.. public.

The original Pokémon games were rumoured to have a hidden code regarding the Pokémon Tower boss. Originally, it was meant lớn be a decaying corpse with quite powerful Pokémon.
If you managed khổng lồ defeat this character, the game would freeze since there was no script phối in place if victory was achieved.

Spooky.

8 The Town Of Tumbleweed In Red Dead Redemption Is Haunted
Red Dead Redemption is one of the finest console games to lớn have sầu been released during the seventh generation of video clip gaming. The western setting is not exactly a hotbed for đoạn Clip games, but somehow Rockstar has managed to lớn develop a game that has all the recognizable traits of the esteemed developer in this unusual setting.

via youtube.com by CreepsMcPasta
After the release of the GameCube, players were hoping fervently that Nintendo would release a fully-fledged Mario game capable of taking full advantage of the current hardware. Unfortunately, only one game — Super Mario Sunshine — saw the light of day. The other title, named Super Mario 128, was released as a tech kiểm tra but never developed into lớn a proper Mario title.
However, according lớn some rumours one person actually managed to get their hands on a copy of Super Mario 128, detailing the creepy events of the game. As always, Bowser has kidnapped Peach, and Mario is tasked with rescuing her. However, as the story progresses it seems that the residents of the Mario universe have sầu given up on the eponymous character, and soon Mario crashed down inkhổng lồ a real-life thành phố. He is subsequently stabbed & decapitated by a realistic-looking Bowser, which is obviously the stuff of nightmares.
5 The Number Stations From Fallout 3
Fallout 3 was Bethesda"s first foray inlớn a world ravaged by the nuclear apocalypse. The game was pretty great, và gamers have sầu picked apart at every nook and cranny of the series in order khổng lồ figure out all the secrets of this brilliant game.
One such secret that has been rumoured khổng lồ be in the game revolves around a particular radio station that says gibberish before providing a series of numbers that is apparently meant to lớn represent the time and date for various real-life events.

Unfortunately, things did not go well for hyên. The clown ended up invading his game và made hlặng experience something astoundingly creepy. The whole story is a pretty long read, but it"s certainly not bad. Plus, clowns, in general, are quite spooky so this story already has that particular scare factor in place. Suffice to lớn say, don"t take any chances with spooky clowns.
3 Super Mario 64 Damned
Bootleg copies have sầu been the source of a ton of creepypastas, và it"s pretty obvious that a recognizable character in the size of Mario will attract a ton of creepypastas. This one, in particular, is quite chilling, and it starts with a couple getting a bootleg Super Mario 64 copy that provided an absolutely horrifying experience, which is totally not what Mario games are all about.
From audio distortions and jump scares, to lớn full-blown videos and images of Mario suffering torture and death of the most painful order (including one where he gets his face and eyes shut as he gets repeatedly stabbed), this creepypasta is certainly not for the faint of heart.

Like most creepypasta stories, this tale revolves around a bootleg copy of Pokémon Red that a player managed to get their hands on. This bootleg added another starter Pokémon called Ghost, who has the sprite of the Lavender Town ghosts. In battle, Ghost only has one move called Curse, và enemy Pokémon are too scared khổng lồ attachồng Ghost at all.
The implication of the Curse move is pretty dismal, since it"s clearly hinted that using this move kills the opposing Pokémon (it can also be used to lớn kill the Trainer as well). Then, there"s the rather creepy ending, where you control an aged version of yourself as you battle against Ghost. The only move you can use is labelled "Struggle," và after a while Ghost uses Curse on you, implying that he kills you at the end of the game.

One of the most intricate creepypastas on this menu, the MARIO hack for Super Mario World is probably one of the most well-known stories ever. The person who used this hachồng found a text file which mostly contained gibberish & the phrase "find me" repeated throughout the document. The game itself was rather odd, with no enemies, text boxes with either cryptic or insulting messages và the color of each successive màn chơi draining out.
Many people have sầu deduced that this hachồng is actually detailing the fact that Mario is sinking into lớn depression the longer the game progresses, making it a precursor khổng lồ his attempt at suicide that occurs when Mario goes down a regular pipe... và never returns. To add khổng lồ the scare factor, the text tệp tin was actually an accidental format change, and converting it baông chồng khổng lồ .jpg revealed the horrible image you can see right above sầu. Good night!
