8 Creepy Video Game Urban Legends (that happen to be true)

The urban legends of every era always seem to reflect whatever teenagers are doing at the time: Forty years ago, they told stories about serial killers attacking kids making out in cars and escaped criminals hiding in someone's backseat, because they didn't have jetpacks yet. Today, most young people seem to spend their time sitting or standing in front of video game screens, so it makes sense that we should get legends like ...

Yeup, it's definitely refreshing reading an article this good, lately everything on here has just been crap. No Joke either..

Not bad, I liked the read and didn't even know about some of these things.

captain-obvious1827d ago

those last 2 where really whats real good in this article

Squall_Leonhart1827d ago

Most definitely I hadn't even heard of that game until now. Wonder if what they say about it is true.

Polybius reeks of Urban Myth and nothing more, The idea of any video media being able to take such effect on people without known conditions sounds pretty unlikely.

I just dont see it being too plausible really, But yeah, great article

Wow, nice read. Hardly see an article worth completing nowadays. Like Mr. Obvious said, the last few were really good. Although, the shadow people in hell valley were awesome!

Yeah isn't it weird that one of the few articles worth reading isn't on a gaming website but rather on cracked.

PhoenixDevil1827d ago

I first read a cracked article based on a story on here about fallout new Vegas and it was so funny and well written, like this article, that it kept me going back to that site. If you've got some free time or bored at work its defiantly worth it

I always loved the Braid story. The imagery is too brilliant to be a coincidence :)
