When youâ€™re developing a single game for anywhere from two to five years, you can get a little bored. One of the ways developers like to entertain themselves during long development sprints is to hide easter eggs in their games, and many times these little secrets are creepy as hell.
Robbie The Rabbit â€“ Silent Hill Series
Robbie the Rabbit is visible in manyÂ Silent HillÂ games. He doesnâ€™t do much other than just there, but you usually find him in weird, unexpected places. The overall design of the stuffed bunny is creepy enough, with its pink fur, bloody mouth, and eternal grin. But itâ€™s the eyes and unexpected places you find the bunny scattered throughout the series thatâ€™s so creepy.
Bloody Teddy Bear â€“ Call of Duty Black Ops 2
Teddy bears are the go to â€œcreepy thingâ€ that many games and movies resort to. Itâ€™s no different in Call of Duty Black Ops 2, which has frequently used creepy stuffed bears throughout its multiplayer and single player campaigns. What started as a cute Easter egg, has turned into almost a series staple. By the timeÂ Black Ops 2Â came out, the Teddy Bear became even more creepier.
Who Are You Running From â€“ Game Boy Camera
The Game Boy camera was a peripheral add on to the original Game Boy that took low resolution digital photos. It also came with several mini games, one of which was an RPG. Like many RPGs, there was an option to run away from battle. But if you pressed the run button, the game would freeze with a creepy face on it, and text reading â€œwhat are you running from.â€ The faces were those of the Game Boy Cameraâ€™s developers, all â€œvandalizedâ€ and making creepy faces.
Xbox Dashboard Music
The Xbox dashboard, if left open and untouched, would eventually start making noises. If you listen to the noises long enough, youâ€™ll hear it start whispering something. One of the whispers sounds like itâ€™s saying â€œI want to own your soul.â€
The Ghost of Mount Gordo â€“ Grand Theft Auto 5
Rockstar has always put some kind of creepy ghost characters in theirÂ Grand Theft AutoÂ games, but the Ghost of Mount Gordo in particular will make your skin crawl. The ghost in question here is Jolene Cranley-Evan, who died when her husband, Jock, pushed her off a cliff on a mountain hike. When you go to the location in game, youâ€™ll find the word â€œJOCKâ€ written in blood, and at night, youâ€™ll find her ghost haunting around.
Slenderman â€“ Runner 2
Runner 2 is one of those endless runner games, shockingly. But thereâ€™s a hidden Easter egg in the background of some of its levels. That, of course, being boogeyman Slenderman. Usually youâ€™ll be going too fast through levels to really notice him, but heâ€™ll always be there in the background, watching you. If you slow the footage down, it even looks like heâ€™s jittering and stuttering about in place.
