The world of video games is indeed an interesting one. There are so many people playing, so many different games that it is really hard to keep track. Nevertheless, there are some games that have created a name for themselves, a culture around them, their own slang, netiquette and folklore. Because every gamer relishes in the full experience of the video game, he has probably attempted to complete all quests, and missions, and inevitably, discovered one of the following video game urban legends.
5. Squall is Dead
The reason why some people will never be able to play Final Fantasy without being dissapointed is Final Fantasy VII and VIII. These two series were definitely the best of their series, way ahead of their time, and with powerful story-lines and characters. One such character is Squall, the quiet, and extremely powerful protagonist, who many believe to have died because in the end of disc one, he is impaled with an ice shard by the main boss, Edea.
From there on, the game stops being a realistic fantasy game, and becomes an over the top suprearealistic games. Many believe that Squall actually died, and everything on disc 2 is nothing but a dream that he has when life flashes before his eyes.
4. Fallout 3 Predicts the Future
Fallout 3 is one of the most cherished open world role playing games. Because it is so enormous, it should not come as a surprise that there are still many things undiscovered, even by the most serious gamers. The urban legend every gamer should know about it, is that there is something in the game that may predict the future. Apparently, the post-apocalyptic game can foresee the future in the real word, by using morse code and hidden messages within the game’s radio station.
Nevertheless, many suspect that you can actually hear a DJ on the station rambling off such cryptic phrases, which are then followed by morse code that can be interpreted as dates. Whether this video game urban legends is true or not, is left for you to discover.
3. Minecraft: Herobrine
What makes Minecraft so bloody brilliant is its simplicity. All you have to do is mine different materials in the world, and use them to build structures, buildings and monuments that your mind can come up with. Nevertheless, certain players have reported bizarre happenings in their game.
It seems that mysterious buildings have a tendency of appearing and dissapearing, and there is also a white-eyed person, which some think is the game’s protagonist. There has been a lot of heated discussion on the subject of Herobrine, some believe he is merely a glitch, while others actually think that he is a ghostly manifestation of the game creator’s deceased brother.
Berzerk is one of the classic epic arcade-era games that some people simply couldn’t get enough of. It also had one of the most iconic boss battles in Evil Otto, where you had to destroy a simple smiley face. Another record held by Berzerk is the first video-game to have been linked to the death of a person.
And it didn’t stop there! Jeff Dailey died after playing Berzerk in 1981, and in 1982 another 18-year old boy, Peter Burkowski, also died while playing it. He took a few steps back from the game, and collapsed. Both causes of death were ruled heart attacks.
1. Morrowind Mod jvk1166z.esp
Out of all the video game urban legends out there, the one about Morrowind is the strangest ones. Personally, I am not a fan of Morrowind, but many gamers still consider it the best game in the Elder Scrolls series. This is probably because it has a huge open world, and wonderful community where users mod the game, add characters and armor. As a matter of fact, there is a very macabre mod in Morrowind, that could actually drive players insane. It first appeared three years ago, and people thought it was a virus at first. When players start the game all the characters are already dead, and standing still drains your life. If you die from standing still, your new character will be revealed to you, he is referred to as the assasin.Â
He has long arms and legs that can bend like a spider’s and if you pay close attention to him you can see him scurrying on walls. At night, all the NPCs would come out and when you try to interact with them they say Watch the Sky.Â There is also a new dungeon, which has a locked door, that nobody has managed to open. Many players have tried, and after seeing The Assasin so many times, they have actually lost their minds. Download the mod at your own risk.
