Though a majority of video games focus more on adventure and entertainment than scares, some titles utilize fear as part of their gaming experience. But if your Pokemon and Sonic the Hedgehog games start introducing violent ghosts and random bloodshed like in the video below, you might throw your controller across the room.
Yet, as strange as it sounds, a number of video game myths speak of cursed Pokémon cartridges and bloodthirsty blue hedgehogs. These unexpected scares are more terrifying than any Pyramid Head.
Much more than a glitch in the programming, video game urban legends take all the fun out of gaming and replace it with pure nightmare fuel. Hitting "restart" won't save you now, but hitting "play" on the video below gives you fair warning about what you might expect to see on your haunted copy of Majora's Mask.
