Speak to any gamer and ask them what their scariest video game is. Chances are, they’ll say something like Dead Space or The Evil Within. But the real horror occurs when an absolutely normal game designed to entertain accidentally goes crazy, giving us an unwanted glimpse of what the deepest rings of hell would look like if rendered in pixels.
Let’s take a look at what goes down when gaming glitches stop being annoying and just get terrifying.
5. Call of Duty 3: Undead Nazis
Even without legs, this undead Nazi from Call of Duty 3 still manages to perform a terrifying breakdance routine.
4. Red Dead Redemption: Manimals
Red Dead Redemption is almost as famous for it’s outlandish video game glitches as it is for it’s immersive gameplay. Most famous of which are the manimals. Part-man, part-animal, all-freaky. There are the snake people, the Cougar Man and, pictured here, the infamous Bird-People. Human beings that fly around the heavens by flapping their arms like all of us truly believed we could when we were younger.
3. GTA San Andreas: The Ghost Cars of the Woods
