10 Myths and Legends in Videogames
Nick Lalone has compiled five myths and legends in videogames for Halloween.
Myths and Legends
In honor of Halloween and every fairy tale, wives tale, horror story, and urban legend in our hometowns, here is a collection of 10 unique tales from the virtual. Urban Legends in video games are actually pretty rare given that they are the product of closed systems randomly doing something they were meant to do; but they are always entertaining.
Traditionally, these legends usually originate in a forum post or are the product of our reliance on wikis – especially in games that cross between languages and cultures. Creepy Pasta is one place that stories like these originate though I have only chosen 2 that have. Check the site out when you feel like feeling creeped out. I recommend you be very drunk or very sick.
This collection of urban legends are either in the process of being formed or have never really travelled outside the community they appeared in. They are ordered according to how fantastic they seem to be. I have tried to collect 10 legends that have actual game origins. In certain cases, this is not true but I will leave that to you to discern.
