[QUOTE=Sabrina;26973551]I remember reading about this so-called myth about Nightmare House 2, that if you deleted all Emily's soundfiles she would come to you unscripted in-game and kill your character. So, of course i had to try it out. I was almost at the part with those fucking mannequins. So i see her feasting on the poor soldier's body, i alt-tab and delete her entire sound folder. I alt-tab back because the game is fullscreen, she's gone. I look around and i thought maybe loading the save again ruined the scene. I continue normally and pass the game. Woohoo, big deal. Like, a week later i was playing Condemned: Criminal Origins and i was at the shopping mall. The mannequins kept reappearing everywhere and then i see a girl in a white dress, behind the mannequins, partially in the dark. It seems like she's skipping as if she had 300 ping on a server, suddenly her face goes huge in front of my screen as if she took the camera and pushed it in her face. My monitor shuts down. When i start it up, i just have an error message saying condemned.exe has crashed. I go to Steam to tell my friend about how scared i am when i notice my profile's summary has changed by itself. It says: "Don't do that again."[/QUOTE] Haha, no.
Dear god I'm not sleeping tonight. :ohdear:
In less creepypasta and more IRL terms, Black & White freaked the hell out of a number of people by reading their names aloud in a whisper at midnight. It also had the creature send you e-mails.

I'll design a game that will randomly whipser the most common American name in the middle of the game at a specific time, just to make them freak out.
So, [img]http://fotos.fotoflexer.com/90b65b7b02bd70c3f7a1280cb0c8647a.jpg[/img] is this Half-Life tanker thing? You just made that up, right? Also, all this "hurr supa realistic grafik in a 10 year old game" stuff is getting boring.
sorry for the long paste....the story isnt to good but its team fortress 2 so i thought what the hell TEAM FORTRESS 2 I really miss my TF2. I wish I had the guts to even open it again, but I just can't...not after that... It all started around 3 days ago. I was there having fun with the Halloween event, when suddenly my IRL friend calls me on Steam. He's Brazillian as well, so this is just a rough translation of our conversation: Friend: Hey Léo (my IRL nickname) are you there? Me: Yep, why? Friend: I... I need you to look into something... Me: Uh, what exactly? Friend: You see, there is something wrong with my tf Me: imba weps? Friend: What? Me: Nvm Friend: Anyway, it’s all fucked up Me: Texture glitches? Friend: I don’t know what to call it anymore; you have to see it for yourself Me: Screens? Friend: No... I tried uploading some, it just didn’t work Me: Weird Friend: Just do it on your PC Me: Oh, as long as it doesn’t require any dls Friend: no... just go to your load-out screen, equip the mackerel, then the bat, then the mackerel again, then the sandman... Me: Must be some awkward graphical glitch Me: Wait, I don’t have a mackerel Friend: I would give you mine... if I could Me: I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for telling me Friend: Thanks for listening... and sorry for telling you... As I was about to ask him what he meant, he disconnected. That was one hell of a weird conversation, though it wouldn't have been had I gone back in time to warn myself. At the end of the conversation, I was thinking my friend was a major n00b that found some fancy graphical glitch and wanted to show me. What was, however, bugging me, was the tone of the conversation. You may read it as your average dialogue, but my friend was the kind that would almost always type in some smiles. This time there were none; something seemed off. I decided to try it anyway, so I disconnected, crafted a mackerel, and went to try the glitch. I carefully did the steps: Mackerel -> Bat -> Mackerel -> Sandman. As I equipped the sandman, my screen suddenly froze. It was rather unusual, since I was playing on my brand new high end PC, but I knew TF2 had the tendency to lag, so I just ignored it. That’s when an ear-bursting beep came out of my ear buds. It was around 2:00 AM and I pretty much flew out of my chair. That’s when TF2 returned to "normal." Or at least I thought so... The first thing I noticed was that all of the load-out slots were gone. It was just a dark-gray background with two gray buttons below it (all text was gone). Then I noticed the scout was looking at me. It’s eyes had no pupils, and there was no gun on his hands. I remember having these sorts of glitches when I used DX 8.1, so it was no big surprise. I clicked the button I guessed that was "Back." The class load-out select screen was glitched, just like the previous screen. All icons below the classes were gone, and all the class icons were upside down; they also wouldn’t zoom in as you moused over them, as usual. I pressed ESC, since the "Close" Button wasn’t there, and what came up was what finally alerted me this was not just another graphical glitch. The title screen was the boldest title screen I’d ever seen. It was just a black screen, with the words "Team Fortress 2" written in white at the top of the screen. It wasn’t written in TF2’s theme font, but rather Times New Roman, like it was rushed out out something. Below it were three options: Play, Options, and Quit. As it was kinda late and I had to sleep, I decided to just jump to play. As the server browser opened, my sub-consciousness was already starting to realize what I was getting into. I suddenly felt a fear I never thought I would ever feel, irrational or not. I was shocked when it could only find one single server. Minutes ago it found over two thousand servers, so how could it find only one now? I checked the filter and they were all turned off; turning any of them on would make the server disappear from the list. What crept me out the most were the details of this single server The name of the server was just "Team Fortress," so I instantly suspected it was a listen server; the Game tab was empty, the player count was 1/14, the Map was just "Manor" (it was written like that, not "cp_manor_event," just "Manor"), and the ping was 10. "That’s what I call a ping," I whispered to myself. I kept staring at the player count for around 30 secs; I was trying to figure out what was someone doing there, lonely, on a remote server, isolated from the player base. I reluctantly entered the server. The loading bar was just a long white stripe, with no text. It connected. I wasn’t greeted by the usual blackboard welcoming screen; instead, it just went straight to the class selection screen. I had just crafted the Horsemann's Headtaker, and I really wanted to try it out, so I instinctively chose Demo. I spawned as a BLU Demo, but in the middle of the map. I also had no weapon. I checked out the score, my name was the only one there. There was no one in RED neither in Spec. Wasn’t there supposed to be someone here? I opened up the server browser again, and now the player count was 2/14. The name of the server suddenly switched to "get out." I got freaked out by that one, but kept going. Before even moving from the odd place I spawned, I typed "Who are you?" I got no answer. I just supposed he didn’t speak English and casually walked out. That’s when my demo suddenly burst into flames. At first, I thought he was just a lone pyro, but that’s when, with a scream of agony I had never heard from any demo-man before, he blew up. By this point I was already scared to death, so I quickly disconnected. The server browser automatically opened a few moments after my "scare-quit." This time the name of the server was "come back I want you." I decided to step up and go in again, now prepared for anything. As it connected for the second time, it just skipped everything and upon fully connecting, I spawned as a Demo with no weapons again. The location, however, was different. I spawned over the gap around the third CP, instantly falling to death. As I waited the respawn, the camera went to a fairly odd looking place I had never seen before. All I could see was a large white stripe with a red and a blue stripe next to it (one on each side). The place I re-spawned was the bottom of the well for me. It was a dark, disturbing room, with a single locker on the right of the exit. I had already played quite a few matches on the map, but I didn’t remember ever seeing such a room. When I walked out, all I could see was a bright white, like what you see when you walk out of bounds on some maps. After roaming around the vast, white desert for a while, something appeared on the chat box: "You are good to go." It had no player name behind, but it couldn’t be any mod or plug-in. I was already losing my sanity. Nothing of it was all that creepy. But it was just so off, that it was creeping the hell outta me. Right after that message came up. I saw a steel gate in the distance. I walked all the way up to it, and quickly got in. I didn’t even think twice. I just wanted to get over with this mind-fuck. What I saw when I walked in scarred my mind so deeply that it’s like I see it every time I dare think of the words "Team Fortress 2": All of the classes from both teams hung up, their mangled faces looking at me and some of their limbs missing. Between the two teams was a large white stripe with smaller red and blue stripes on the sides matching their respective teams, forming a large hallway. So that’s what I saw while re-spawning. That’s where the camera was, still in first person perspective, as the Demo-man. Every time I looked at the hanged demo, the screen would start to get grainy and an image would start slowly fading in to my screen until I looked away. It changed each time I looked. But as far as I could tell, they were all mangled bodies. As the image fully formed for the 4th time, it covered up the entire screen, and kept starring at me for around 5 secs. After that it abruptly disappeared, and when I looked at the hallway again, all the bodies had disappeared. It then froze again, and I could see only one last message on the chat box before I lost connection: “Why?” After disconnecting, I checked the server browser for one last time; the server had just vanished. TF2 (if I can call it that) then closed itself. I opened up Steam and saw there was a new update for TF2. It was, simply, called "-Fixed." I knew what that meant, but still found it unsettling. I wasn’t able to sleep at night, so I just spent the night playing another games… anything but FPSs. Next morning I asked my friend WTF was that. He said he hadn’t logged on steam for about a week. Since then I haven’t played TF2. I was unsure about what to do, so I just decided to note this down and post it on TF2’s SPUF, just to spread the word. I can’t sleep, I’m not eating or drinking well, and I can’t step out of my apartment. Whatever that was, it’s haunting me. I see it in the corners of my eyes, inside my PC, at the street outside my building. it’s there, I’m sure. I tried watching some fun TF2 videos to recover from the trauma, but every once in a while the video would stop, and all the classes would stop whatever they were doing and stare at me. ...with no pupils, of course.
[QUOTE=Skunky;26974419]What? WHAT? More information please? :ohdear:[/QUOTE] It's in B&W2. Give your profile name an actual name. For example, Abdel, Gael, Oscar. Put your windows clock to midnight Play the game, and wait. A dark, low voice will slowly shout your name. Shit's scaring when you are playing in the middle of the night. (and it's actually true) [editline]26th December 2010[/editline] You can verify it by looking around in the game folder, there is a sound file with all the names supported.

Man, my TV just went to static and I didn't even touch it :tinfoil:
Just read through the whole thread, Pretty good way to waste an hour.
I still want my half life creepypasta. Or any other valve made game. Or a New Vegas one?
[QUOTE=froztshock;26963061]I love the computers which are running on "your brain" os.[/QUOTE] And somehow less stable then Windows ME! On-topic, Vault 106 was the scariest Vault ever. Vault 22 won't be fun either. Also, the whispers was confirmed: it's an old Vault soundtrack from the first two games. But I still hear the Overseer over the Public Announcement system... :tinfoil: [editline]26th December 2010[/editline] [QUOTE=Tovleman;26976432]I still want my half life creepypasta. Or any other valve made game. Or a New Vegas one?[/QUOTE] I want my explanation of the so-called 'Tanker Ending' of Half-Life. :saddowns:
The tanker ending is all fake, there isn't even any creepypasta. I'm writing a hl creepypasta and will probably post it soon.
[b]Found the original "Tanker" thing for HL![/b] [quote]after browsing the forums at [url]www.planethalflife.com[/url] i realized that in Halflife there are 2 hidden levels that i never knew existed. one is a Dinosaur level and one is a Oil Tanker level. you need the original unpatched version of halflive (version 1.05 on the original cd) in order to get them any later version disables the easter egg cause sierra thought that the levels were causing videocard probs. you get to the levels on Xen and do so by not killing a certain number of aliens at a point. i am not 100% sure on how to do it yet cause the search function on that forum sucks. however i really wanna try this if i ever get more info on it. anyone know anymore? oh btw it is not in the forum of a .bsp the code for the hidden stuff is hand coded into hl.exe in binary so it is super secret.[/quote] Mite be a troll, but anyways.

Good old days.

[QUOTE=Tovleman;26976432] Or a New Vegas one?[/QUOTE] There aren't any New Vegas creepypastas yet? NV seems like exactly the kind of game that creepypasta writers would have a field day writing for.
[QUOTE=macdoo999;26979537]There isn't any New Vegas creepypastas yet? NV seems like exactly the kind of game that creepypasta writers would have a field day writing for.[/QUOTE] Agree.
^Why rate if you can boost your postcount and E-Peen?
So is there an explanation for those "spirit screams" in HL1?
Zombies breaking free.
My friend has a ghost in his house that hates violent games and loud music. If we played guitar hero the volume would get turned down to a more appropriate volume, and if we played a violent game the xbox would either eject the disk (only when we started shouting things) or it would come unplugged.
[QUOTE=booster;26979738]So is there an explanation for those "spirit screams" in HL1?[/QUOTE] Zombies in making, right after the headcrab "couples" with their head.
[QUOTE=madnath619;26975229]-TF2 Creepypasta Snip-[/QUOTE] End was bad, and so was some of the commentary("What I saw when I walked in scarred my mind..."), but the rest was actually decent, especially the part where he fell down and respawned in the dark room with the lockers. That was actually a bit creepy. The part with the classes hanging was cheesy though, since that can be easily done in a custom map. [QUOTE=macdoo999;26979537]There isn't any New Vegas creepypastas yet? NV seems like exactly the kind of game that creepypasta writers would have a field day writing for.[/QUOTE] Many creepypastas will be written about this man: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BMHkFUQiQzo&feature=related[/media]
[QUOTE=BmB;26974372]In less creepypasta and more IRL terms, Black & White freaked the hell out of a number of people by reading their names aloud in a whisper at midnight. It also had the creature send you e-mails.[/QUOTE] The first one also whispers "deeeaaaaattthhhhhh" randomly. I figured out the name thing after it had whispered a few times. I still have no idea why it whispers death though.
It usually whispered "Death" for me in B&W2 though that I think was usually when someone died of any reason. Age seemed common cause I was a benevolent ruler.
Why is there no STALKER creepypasta?
and then a skeleton popped out? [editline]26th December 2010[/editline] Sorry, i had to do this.
