Ok guys I haven't received any responces, so please tell me if you even care about my book-ish thing
I spent a lot of time on formatting it yesterday (well, mostly my fault) and I want to know if I should continue working on it
Anyone else [i]hate[/i] when you're playing a game, a scary or "confusing" part happens, and the console/pc crashes?
I remember the part in Arkham Asylum where [sp]Scarecrow sends Batman into his fear-gas world for the third time and it's as if the game is restarting.[/sp] Well right as the screen "screwed up", my Xbox actually froze. I was pretty freaked out until I restarted and saw what was supposed to happen.
Scarecrow in AA would make great creepypasta material if done right. Make it seem like the writer is the patient or something.

[quote="Guy from nesgodzillacreepypasta"]I hate video game creepypasta. Hate. Absolutely hate it. All of it. If I had the time and a sledgehammer, I’d use the sledgehammer to rob a bank and use the money to buy something way more violent than a sledgehammer and use that something to murder all the video game creepypasta in the world.[/quote]
I totally agree with him.
Pretty good one that I didn't see on the list: [URL="http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Pale_Luna"]Pale Luna[/URL]
Not a typical "haunted cartridge" style creepypasta, but better than most IMO for being at least a little plausible.
[quote]Hello! If you are reading this, maybe you are a fan of video games! for example, my favorite type of game are first person shooters. Lately, Battlefield 3 had been released, and well, i never bought it, even though i am a very devoted Battlefield fan. Why might i do this? Well i played the beta, and well, it has made me avoid Battlefield games, period.
Before the release, Battlefield had an early beta and alpha, which you could access if you pre-ordered medal of honor, another game by DICE. As alot of us know, these games where extremely glitchy and full of bugs. I was so excited when i got my access to BF3 beta, but after i played it, i never wanted to SEE the name Battlefield.
So the game started with it's normal menu. I liked it's design very much. The entire beta only had a couple of maps that you could play during this period. I played my first game on operation metro, and i was somewhat satisfied with it, Except for it's bugs and glitches. After i lagged out of a server, i was getting pretty frustrated by the ammount of bugs and laggy gameplay i had found.
But when i went back to servers, i noticed a newer, weird map, one that i have never heard or seen on battlefeild 3 beta. The map was called A.exe. I thought this might be a map name error, so i decided to join to see if the server was lagging up, because the player count was strangely 130 slots, and 129 where on. I could tell just by looking at this, that joining would mean a lagtopia. As for the map name, i was utterly clueless at what this was about.
So i joined, and the loading screen picture was the same as operation Metro's, but the name title was still A.exe. The load did not take very long until the game started. I realized that this was NOT operation Metro, but a very high detail map of what appeared to be new york. I thought, at the time, that this was a new addition. I could hear the gunfire of other people shooting, and strangely enough the server ran som much faster then a mere 32 person server half full. I was excited, and decided to explore the huge map. It was very detailed, and every building looked enterable. I also noticed that the streets where flooded with running soldier, but very strangely none of them had names.
I decided to start playing, and this is where things became strange. The rendering of the game messed up big time, giving me the impression that this was a custom made map. As i aimed my gun at a guy, the strangest thing i had every seen happened. The model of the soldeir dropped his gun, got on his knees, and started begging me to spare him. I could even notice sobs coming from him. I had never seen this in battlefield, it was extremely strange, and shocked me a little bit. Being the trigger happy gamer i was, i shot him, but this seemed a bit more gorey. I shot him, and i could see his skull explode as the bullet hit him, and blood fell out so realistically, that it was very unusually gorey for a battlefield game.
I continued on, and found a soldier. I went up to backstab him, which appeared normal, until i read the dogtag i found. The dogtag simply said "Willy Davis" Which was my freinds name. Now that was what shocked me. I tried to tell myself that it was coincidental.
Soon after that, i noticed some civilians runni9ng around, and both teams, instead of shooting each other, shot all the civilians in very grusem and dramatic deaths that looked kinda like dead space. I aimed at the enemy team, but then my own team started aiming at me, ready to teamkill, so i stopped and ignored.
Over time everyones necks where strangely growing, until they where noticably long. Some people where just standing still, spinning in circles, while others where running into walls shooting carelessly. The enemy team paid no attention eaither, so i decided to leave. The menu was, however, not opening up. When i got in, i heard someonjes microphone say "Don't go yet" so i cancelled, plugged in my mic, and said "Who said that??"
The guy never replied, so i went to leave, and my menu closed on its own. One of the giraff'd soldiers head where extending towards my screen, with a smirk facial expression. I aimed my gun, but then he got on his knees and pleaded for me to spare him. This time, he was crying loudly, and even praying on the ground. He started bleeding, and blood dripped under his model, while i stood there astonished at this.
I turned, and another face was right in my screen, and when i faces it, it opened its mouth WIDE and let out a peircing death scream. It nearly blew out my speakers, and i ehard my neibor yell at me to keep it down. I couldent move, and his face started falling apart until it was bloody and red. This looked extremely real, so much so that i went to menu, to exit, but then it canceled again and i heard a whisper. I looked at the map itself, ans half of it was gone, exposing a weird void that showed the bottom of the skybox.
The enemy team started spawning in the sky, and their bodies dropped all around us. You could hear bone crunches, and many of them dismembered horrifically when they hit the ground. Every model on my team had their textures broken, and they where all motionless, and black, as iff lighting had died.
I then noticed everything stop, and the map was changing. This newer map was called "Hello." I was scared to know what it was. When the map laoded, i noticed something horrific. The map, was an exact replica of the neiborhood that my house is on. I could not move, and i saw a bloddy soldier, with no head, and bones sticking out of his knees, walk into a house. It was my house.
He walked in, and i heard gunfire. I then heard another peicing death scream, and then chopping noises. The demented soldeir walked out, dragging along a body with his eyes gouged out, and 6 bullets in his abdomen. He walked to me, and i could see it mroe clearly. The model, the dead body, was waering exactly what i was wearing right then. I freaked out and also noticed it had my hair, face, and physique. I trembled with fear, as the demented soldeir started begging me to shoot him, as his model started morphing.
He started standing on his hands, his lags where twisted, and his fingers where flying about. His mouth was open and blood was dripping everywhere. A model dropped out of the sky, and it was my girlfriend! She landed and dismembered, with a spear sticking out of her head. When she landed, all i could hear what a continuos death scream, that did sound alot like her scream!
I was scarred. I turned off my computer, and restarted it. When i rebooted, the normal WINDOWS was renamed WNDS for some odd reason. A message popped up with a picture on it, which was also on my backround. It was a real picture, of my girlfriend, and Willis, impaled on a spear, with their eyes gouged and their intestens hanging out. Blood was everywhere and the photographer was giving a thumbs up, while holding two dogtags in his hands.
I turned off my computer, and went to my mini laptop so i could talk to some freinds about the map. Apperently NOBODY knew what it was, and they thought i was joking until the police found my girlfriend and willies body, mangles inj the exact same way as the picture showed. They also found a note, saying Hello. I was horrified, and decided to move out of the area. I reported the maps to dice, but dice had not created those, as well as that the beta can't even handle 130 player counts yet. DICE blew me off, and made me seem like a lunatic.
What was most scary, was that my freind had, a day later, had the same experience, and told me about it, with concern for my safety. I asked him, why are you so freaked out? He said to me, That when he took a dogtag, it had my name on it. I hung up, and heard a noise outside. I opened my door, and a figure was standing right in my door. I treid to scream, but i blacked out. I woke up, under a roller coaster in california. I live in maine. Only one day had passed, but when i noticed what had happened in maine, none of my freinds, or family where alive anymore.
I was freaked out, and told the police everything. When i got back to maine, i opened my door, and blacked out again. I woke up, in the same exact spot as before. I was so scared that i decided to never go back. I met a girl over in california, and i live with her. As for battlefield, i'm never gonna play it, ever again.[/quote]
If it weren't written with such horrible grammar and if it included less hyper-realism this could actually be read worthy
also hidden map again

If you ask me, the Zombies easter eggs could make a good creepy pasta (I only played the WAW zombies mode)
Anyone got the one where the guy finds another world in Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask, can't remember which. Its like some ridiculously huge world, more interesting than creepy, can't find it anywhere!
I think you're thinking about the old Zelda 3D Creepypasta.
Video Game creepypasta usually sucks, it's always this stupid "OMFG HYPER REALISTIC BLOOD OOZING OUT OF MY TV HOLY SHIT!!!!1!111!!"
and that retarded "I WAS JUST LIK 'WUT?' THEN I REALIZED THE GAME IS HAUNTED!!!!!! OMG HOLY SHIT!!!"
or this even worse "UMG I STILL SUFFR FRUM DA AFTRMUTH OF DA XPEERINCE!!!!111!! HOLY SHIT DUN DUN DUUUUUN!"

Even if the grammar and other flaws were fixed, that would still be a shit creepypasta.
I think this is a Hoax when i cant fly a little bird but he can.

Damn, I want to play LSD: Dream Emulator so bad, but I hate trying to get everything set up! Anyone have a simple 'everything packed together download' somewhere out there. I mean, finding the emulators and converting files seems to hate me.

That's the emulator, bios, and rom
Not really an urban legend so to speak but I hunted down the sharks in Vice City and found them to be real when I was younger, then got scared due to my shark phobia.
Anyway, these arn't really creepypastas, but sure could be:
I rather post the entire article, then copypasta parts of it. All 3 are good reads...

Does anyone remember the Ratman in GTA IV?
One forum I know even tried to find him.

Just read all three Terraria storys in the OP.
Never sleep again.
Which stories should I add next?
Just finished the Godzilla story. As a creepy pasta it featured quite a few cliches I really dislike. But I instead decided to treat it as just a story in it's own right and I thought it was really well done.

Also to everyone saying they couldn't sleep after it: [sp]I don't really get why, it had a fairly happy ending as far as scary stories go[/sp]

Something unnerving and capable of keeping people up for hours.

Yeah, I'd understand people who say that more if the ending wasn't so cheeseball and happy. I'm not too miffed about it being that way, seeing as how the rest of the story sort of made up for it and creepypastas are generally difficult to end anyways (although the author's blatant aversion to constructive criticism of the ending despite him saying that he fully accepts criticism is quite grating), but it still could have been a lot better.
At least it didn't go the BEN route, though. Christ, what a clusterfuck that became. I'm pretty sure they're still working on an "indie game" for it that's centered around everything that isn't the actual Majora's Mask cartridge itself, which was really the only reason it got any attention to begin with.
I'll try to write a Semi-Serious CoD creepypasta. I'm terrible at horror writing, so it might suck

[quote]A while ago, I had purchased a copy of Call of Duty 3 from the local Pawn Shop. I was in the mood for a quick game that I could beat when I had some off time, and the game was in the bowels of the bargain bin. When I picked it up, the box that would have had the normal PS2 box art, had most of the front side missing. Thinking that this was just a symptom of age and good use, I brushed it off and paid my $2.
When I arrived home, after having to make a pretty harsh detour around a traffic jam, it was quite late. It was already 11:00, and I decided to boot it up. The back of the disc looked mighty dusty, but a simple wipe with my shirt sleeve made it all right. As my PS2 loaded the game, I noticed that the starting “advertisements” weren’t there. All that was there was a blank screen that sat there for a few seconds, and then the main menu arrived.
Immediately upon seeing it, the Main Menu was very different from what the usual Call of Duty 3 menu would be. It was a field of rifles stuck in the “Grave Position”. On the left, there were American helmets, on the right German. The music, instead of being the classic march music, was simply just one violin playing a single, ominous tune. Regarding this as probably a Limited/Game of the Year edition, I hit “New Game” as always. Instead of letting me choose my name or difficulty, it blasted me to a very odd first level.
I wasn’t on the training field, but instead a graveyard like that of the main menu. I had the M1 Garand and Thompson loadout that was the normal thing for American levels. There was a new set of helmets on the graves too; they were the classic British “Doughboy”. I walked around, and (being my curios self) shot off a helmet from one of the German graves. Upon doing so, I heard a sound that was the mix between a yell and a groan. I looked at the foot of the grave, and a mound of dirt appeared, and pulled the rifle down.
After the rifle was pulled down, the grave was somewhat brighter than the others. I shot some more, and the same process began. After the 8th or so grave, the screen went black, and a message appeared on the screen.
“For he knows how weak we are;
he remembers we are only dust.”
And then my PS2 froze up and made that distinctive “whiiirrrrr” sound. I turned it back off, and turned it back on again, blew on the disc, and started up the game. It proceeded to act like it should have, and had no errors or strange grave level. I wonder if the glitch was something that the developers failed to put in properly, and if it was triggered by the games poor condition. It was very unnerving, but after a few levels of mindless shooting, it got off my mind. Still, it was quite odd, and I really hope it doesn’t happen again.

I tried, I failed, I don't care
You know what would be awesome? If there was a videogame that seemed like the average game nowadays, except there would be a hidden second storyline that would be triggered either at random or from a very specific point in time. The second storyline would start out almost like the normal one, but every now and then something weird would happen that would make the player think that something was wrong. By the end of the game the second story would be nothing like the first one, and it would be terrifying and it would probably end with the player character's death. Or, if not something that bold, there should at least be an elaborate Easter Egg that ends up terrifying the player into not doing whatever they did to get to it. Creepypasta is good an all, but having something like it actually happen in an otherwise normal game would be great. It's what I would do if I was a developer.
