4chan is known for starting a lot of good things and bad things, I never really follow it but have noticed a somewhat interesting trend known as creepypasta. Basically they are original content of written stories, which has given birth to a number of things, Red, Ben Drowned, Herobrine, etc. Though the ones that seem to be the most popular are ones based on video games. This thread is basically about creepy stories behind video games, or creepy indie or older games, pre ps2 era. The following are some that freaked me out quite a bit.

This has to be the scariest one I've seen yet, just because of how much that game freaked me out when I originally played it by myself as a kid, some of the npcs just didn't sit right, the main one being the smiling merchant which he uses a lot. A recent video about 4 months ago suggests he might be making more.

The main reason this one is so scary was before the wolf addition to minecraft, playing single player always gave off a feeling of incredible solitude, which sometimes freaked a lot of people out when in caves by themselves. I personally just tended to get depressed especially due to the music, though after seeing this was always on edge of seeing Herobrine.

More to come in a bit, just trying to start off the thread.

This game is actually downloadable, shaped after the creepypasta. I have yet to play it, though will probably atleast start it today.

If you don't want this thread to dissolve into random posts that totally deviates from the OP, then you should NOT post in the Chatterbox. Anyways, I moved it to the video game section. If you want to move it back to Chatterbox, let me know.

Nice thread btw. Nothing to contribute for now though so... :waits for someone else to say something:

Minecraft did inspire a certain terror in me. I knew that I was truly alone in the world, because I never took to the multiplayer. I always played on normal, because peaceful made it seem like I was cheating and anything above made it feel a little unfair.

But in terms of terror, there is nothing worse than complete silence as you mine out some resources in a cave and suddenly hearing something moving around the corner. Of course, the tension is killed when it turns out to be a cow.

Other than Minecraft, I can't think of many times a game has genuinely presented a truly creepy story. Silent Hill 1 would have been better if I wasn't playing it on a soundless emulator, Silent Hill 4 just didn't feel scary, and I haven't played 2 yet, which is apparently one of the best horror games of all time.

I suppose SH 1 was good. Even without sound, it felt terrible in the beginning to watch the little girl keep running away from me, her father, after a car crash. I didn't know if she was dead and I was hallucinating, if she was a ghost, if she was alive and possessed--the uncertainty in Silent Hill 1 was amazing, but it all ended for me when I couldn't figure out where to go after the first fifteen minutes of gameplay.

I have yet to play Amnesia or System Shock 2. Maybe Amnesia will be feasible when I get a new computer.

No, I was getting ready to message a moderator to move it once I woke up enough to realize it fit under video games. Thanks.

Slenderman is from SA, also does Minecraft //have// a story to speak of? I don't think you can really compare that to Silent Hill. o_o

Naw. I enjoy Minecraft and Silent Hill for completely different reasons: Minecraft for building stuff and surviving waves of creepers and zombies with self-imposed limitations, and Silent Hill for its story. A story mode in Minecraft would be cool, but then again, I wouldn't expect much.

Come to think of it, Fatal Frame 2 (http://shindeiie.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/fatal_frame_ii_-_crimson_butterfly.jpg) was pretty creepy. The PS2 had a lot of good horror games.

Minecraft isn't scary once you have a simple defence set up.

Man, some Pokemon games are weird. Like, if yu go the the Chateau in DPPt at around Midnight, there's this girl walking around and if you try to go into the same room as her, she disappears. It also plays creepy music. There's another Girl in BW that when you try and talk to her, she disappears, and the NPC next to her freaks out. (Though, the BW is just a girl who Teleported away with her Abra according to another NPC.)

Apparently there's some kinda background story with the music for Lavender town and how it gives people headaches....And is about a bunch of human experiments. Just heard from the internutz.

They should make a Pokemon movie where the glitch pokemon and all the glitches from R/B/Y come to life in the animated series Kanto! And they start breaking down reality and appearing suddenly and horrifically.

Scariest Pokemon movie ever.

2. The World of Pokémon Was Ravaged by a Generation-Killing War

This is an awesome theory that makes sense on so many levels. You could even justify Pokemon as renegade bio-engineered weapons using this train of thought... Of course this will never, ever become cannon, but it if did, I would totally buy said game. Haven't played at all since Silver, admittedly.

Also, have some of this;

Also also, it's funny the way these theories never come up with, say, Silent Hill 2, isn't it? x_x

Not exactly creepy but still lolzworthy

DOOM: Repercussions of evil

By: Peter Chimaera

John Stalvern waited. The lights above him blinked and sparked out of the air. There
were demons in the base. He didn't see them, but had expected them now for years. His
warnings to Cernel Joson were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late
for now, anyway.
John was a space marine for fourteen years. When he was young he watched the
spaceships and he said to dad "I want to be on the ships daddy."
Dad said "No! You will BE KILL BY DEMONS"
There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now in
the space station base of the UAC he knew there were demons.
"This is Joson" the radio crackered. "You must fight the demons!"
So John gotted his palsma rifle and blew up the wall.
"HE GOING TO KILL US" said the demons
"I will shoot at him" said the cyberdemon and he fired the rocket missiles. John
plasmaed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were
trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the demons" he shouted
The radio said "No, John. You are the demons"
And then John was a zombie.
