Haunted, Cursed, and Mysterious Video Games

10 posts in this topic

Quote

Perhaps the last thing from anyone’s mind when they think of the haunted or the cursed is video games. After all, this is supposed to be entertainment, a way to escape the stresses of the world and anything that may lie beyond it. Yet the world of video games has not gone untouched by tales of the strange, haunted, and unexplained. Ranging from the unknown to what is probably urban legend, these are weird tales that run the range of the odd and put a new spin on the up to now harmless pursuit of playing video games.

I would say it is clear that Polybius was an experiment by the government.

Amusing, but as someone who's played two of the games, I'm calling "urban legend" on Minecraft and Morrowind.

This thread reminds me of that old pokemon myth, i cant remember which game maybe red or blue, but there is a level in the game called Lavender town and the music is meant to make kids commit suicide, obviously a load of bull but this thread made me think of it.

Well I can only say that "Sinneslöschen" (the name of the supposed, German company that produced Polybius and which I assume is supposed to mean "Mind Wipe") is NOT an actual, German word. 

The rest of the article: I assume the it's meant to be lighthearted "let's pretend to be scared of these urban legends, which would really be easy to debunk if we thought about it, because sometimes that's fun" 

On "haunted" video games there is actually a little, fan created Pokemon game that was based on an earlier Creepypasta called "Pokemon Lost Silver" that you can find and legally download. It's a fun little game,and very well made ,even featuring an alternate path not mentioned in the original Creepypasta (called Tarnished Gold). I'm surprised there aren't any other fan games/hacks based around "haunted" games. Or are there?

Polybius In 1981 Exactly what were the MIB downloading the data onto in 1981? Sounds like bull to me.
