    Some of those are actually pretty creepy. I really like theories like the FF 8 thing in games.
  • Apastron - October 29, 2012 3:26 p.m.

    I love the theory that Sorceress Ultimecia is actually Rinoa. I know a lot of it doesn't hold water but I like to think that gaming stories are whatever you make of them (usually due to a lot being so poor/mundane/hole-ridden) and it's that angle that contains the most meaning to me personally. Of course, this negates the above story, but I don't like it as much anyway.
  • Thedigitalg - October 29, 2012 12:33 p.m.

    I remember the FF8 theory, which I thought was really cool. Most of the points are wrong, but it did make me think.
  • CUFCfan616 - October 29, 2012 12:57 p.m.

    I'd be quite disappointed if my last thoughts followed the plot of FF8 and had not one character who wasn't completely annoying (or annoying in some small way). Maybe it is actually a horror game. Seeing Seifer cut apart Odin was scary enough in that an annoying sub boss defeats a FF legend

    Love the list, but you forgot to mention the story of Ben from Majora's Mask.
  • GutFunk - October 29, 2012 1:17 p.m.

    Yeah, the Ben story from Majora's should definitely be on this list
  • robertpopovic - October 29, 2012 1:07 p.m.

    Totally love these urban myth stories like the random folks in the background on some levels of Mario Galaxy 2 (or was it 1?)
  • shawksta - October 29, 2012 6:03 p.m.

    It was 2, in shiverburn galaxy

    So many Pokemon myths that it's hard to fathom: The idea that Ditto is a failed Mew clone hypothesis. The Cubone/Kangaskhan correlation. That Blue visited the Pokemon Tower was to mourn the loss of his Raticate, which has never been seen after you fight him.
  • ShowMeYourKitties - October 29, 2012 2:54 p.m.

    Gengar is Clefairy's shadow The strange lack of young and middle-aged men in R/B/Y is due to a war Oh, and the "Lost Silver" myth.
  • tomasfr89 - October 29, 2012 2:02 p.m.

    Somebody NEEDS to make that Killswitch game (of course, they would have to exorcise the twisted souls of the Karvina CEOs to get the rights).
  • RODTheMaster - October 29, 2012 2:12 p.m.

    I'm also disappointed that the Haunted Majora's Mask cart wasn't included. It was a great horror narrative/ ARG that played on the subversive nature of the already-creepy Majora's Mask.
  • zombi3grim - October 29, 2012 2:39 p.m.

    Awsome list!
  • RebornKusabi - October 29, 2012 2:54 p.m.

    I found the "Ben Drowned" creepypasta to be fairly creepy. It's been mentioned a couple of times so far so I figured I would throw my weight behind that one and link to it- With said, I found the "NES Godzilla Creepypasta" to be better than that one, just because of how much of a slow-grind it is in it's horror.
  • AlpineGuy - October 29, 2012 3:06 p.m.

    OH GAAAAWD, the Majora's Mask story chills me to the bone every time, especially once the "videos" on YouTube came out. I would've personally ranked Ben Drowned #1 on the list.
  • PoisonWar - November 2, 2012 10:48 a.m.

    That's pretty damn disturbing.
  • AlpineGuy - October 29, 2012 3:02 p.m.

    I don't know why, but Pokemon always seems to have the creepiest urban legends based upon it. My top three are Pokemon Black, Lost Silver, and BuriedAlive. -Pokemon Black: -Lost Silver: -BuriedAlive:
  • Net_Bastard - October 29, 2012 3:04 p.m.

    Wow, did you guys seriously put Herobrine on this list? That story is just some shitty Creepypasta that only got around because the Minecraft fanbase is comprised of 11-year old twats.
  • FemJesse - October 29, 2012 4:25 p.m.

    Herobrine is real. Someone is building those 2 unit tunnels under my stuff... that's no coincidence...
  • Cloudiology - October 29, 2012 3:16 p.m.

    read the whole squall being dead one... holy crap is that depressing
