10 Unintentionally Creepy Video Game Characters

WC - When a video game is being made, design is crucial, to ensure that on a basic aesthetic level, a game is going to appeal to the target audience and seem appropriate. For various reasons, the following characters just didn’t suit their purposes; the majority, with their bright colours and cute voices, were supposed to be loveable, but the very opposite effect was achieved through a combination of poorly thought-out artistic flourishes and a weird-ass script that totally freaked us out. In other cases, the character appears in a game that’s actually got adult content, but the character was nevertheless not supposed to be this strange. (Culture)
