5. The Sims 3 – Creepy Babies
This first demon child can sometimes happen when customising a baby’s outfit. Marvel at it’s long, slender digits and groin face, what mother wouldn’t swoon for over this gentle creation.
Next up we have a baby stick. Yep, that’s right that long rod there is actually a cute little bubba – nawwww.
And lastly we have a rather disturbing glitch that demonstrates how not to hold your baby.
4. The Karazhan Crypt
Back in the days of vanilla wow there was an area that was off-limits to all but a select few players. It was filled with intense scenes of torture, so much so that the developers at Blizzard eventually blocked it off permanently.
In the village surrounding Karazhan there was a crypt locked shut by a gate. By exploiting different spells like Polymorph you could slip you through the metal bars and gain entrance. What waited beyond that gate, further down into the crypt, were scenes of gruesome suffering. Piles of human remains, bloated corpses chained, floating in murky green water. This is the crypt of the upside-down sinners. Persecuted souls left to rot in the depths of an off-limits gaming area.
3. Sherlock Holmes and the Case of Creepy Watson
Here’s some unsettling footage taken from a demo of the video game ‘Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis’. Watson’s character wasn’t programmed to have walking animation which causes him to appear behind you like slender man.
Remember, Watson is always watching.
2. Red Dead Redemption’s Menagerie of Manimals
Throughout Red Dead Redemption there are a series of glitches that seem to morph non-playing characters with animals. No one seems to know how to replicate these ghastly glitches but you can’t deny that these defects are hilarious and often very unsettling.
First up, is this terrifying pig-man. He’s wearing a dapper suit, has a swollen, animal face and squeals like a pig when shot.
Then there’s these surreal, flapping bird-men that can be seen flying over the open deserts.
Next is the Incredible Donkey Lady captured by Youtube channel WhereDaBootz. She’s half lady, half donkey. Sporting an equine-like face this mutant halfcast can be ridden around for the gamers pleasure.
And lastly uploaded to the same Youtube account is the Infamous Cougar-Man. This possessed little man is doomed to scoot around on his knees and growl viciously like a cougar, attacking unsuspecting passerbyers.
1. Skyrim’s Living Mannequins
Once you own a home on Skyrim, in the basement are a number of wooden mannequins that you can place armour on. Occasionally though, whilst rummaging through your belongings these demonic mannequins sneak up and stare soullessly at you.
When it was first discovered, gamers speculated that it was part of a curse or myth belonging to the house but Bethesda released a statement saying that sometimes a glitch occurs that causes the mannequins to run on NPC coding, making them wander creepily about your house – lovely.
