Either people are imagining things or Microsoft and NASA have some explaining to do. Next up at number 3, we have Killswitch. This game is just straight up creepy - if it does actually exist. You see, back in 1989, this game was released in which the player had the choice of playing either a Ghast or Porto.
It was nearly impossible to play as Ghast as he was invincible which meant that almost everyone chose Porto. Items you've found appear at the bottom of the screen. You find pieces of a tape recorder and could listen to events that transformed the mine you're in into the hell that it became. The game was very, hollow, empty, confusing and just creepy all around - but the weirdest part is yet to come.
The story goes that if anyone does complete the game, Killswitch is designed to self-terminate. It deletes all traces of itself on the person's computer. This is bad news because only a reported 5000 copies were ever made. This continued to happen until every last copy was wiped and the company who made the game vanished from existence.
A small community of people are trying to replicate the game based on the stories they've heard, but its slow work and many feel it's not worth the trouble it could ultimately bring … Moving on to number 2 now we have Herobrine. Any of you who have played Minecraft will surely have heard of this character. When you first play the game, you'll have the ordinary standard skin. One day, early in the history of the game, a player said he spawned a new world.
He was playing as normal, mining and building when he saw something moving among the dense fog. He thought it was a cow and so chased it. It wasn't though, staring back at him was a character that had the default skin, but his eyes were empty. There was no name above his head, he double checked to make sure he wasn't in a multiplayer mode.
The character quickly ran off and disappeared. As the game went on, strange things kept happening, parts of the game looked like someone had been there before, even though this was single player. Every once in a while, he claimed to see the strange doppelganger, watching from the fog. After posting this story to the forums, he received a message from a user called Herobrine.
It simply said stop. Eventually, he and some others found that Herborine was the name of a Swedish player, possibly the brother of Notch who is Minecraft creator. They asked Notch if he had a brother, he replied -I did, but he is no longer with us- … thus, the legend was spawned of the creator's dead brother living on in the games coding. Watching players. Watching every player.
Unaware of the afterlife he's ended up in. And finally, at number 1 we have Berzerk. This was a very popular arcade game first released back in 1980 and was a great success and highly addictive. However, it will always be remembered as the first game to be linked to the deaths of some its players - 3 to be precise.
The first was said to be Jeff Dailey, he allegedly entered his initials twice in the Berzerk machines top 10 players list before dying of a heart attack. His score was 16,660, people said if you remove the binary numbers of 1 and 0, you get 666. The next victim was Jeffs friend, a guy called Peter Burkowski. According to the arcade owner where the machine was housed, Peter arrived and began Berzerk at 8:30 pm. He was a top student who hoped to become a doctor - he was also very good at arcade games. After 15 minutes of playing, he posted his initials next to two high scored on the leaderboard.
He then took four steps away, put a quarter into a different game and then collapsed dead from a heart attack. The third death was said to happen to a guy who got into a fight over a quarter that was put into the Berzerk machine. He was stabbed to death. Of course, people began to connect the dots and become convinced that this arcade machine had something to do with it.
Its rare that a kid dies during or just after playing any video game - but 3 all connected to the same one? You can see why the legend of Berzerk has persisted … Aaaaand breath. Were safe now. Well, I loved that, like I said at the start, that was a combination of two of my favorite things in the world. Why don't we combine urban legends with another topic for our next video?
Did anyone get some suggestions? Let's just make sure it's scary. Thanks for watching as always guys, my name is Danny Burke and Ill see you all in the next video.
