The Stanley Parable - Indie Sim Game
The Stanley Parable is a simple game about storytelling. You will be told a story and then you will be asked to make a choice, except that the choice will not matter. No, sorry, my mistake, the choice matters a great deal. Or maybe…is it that the story doesn’t matter? Wait, let me check my notes…
Yes, it says right here. “The Stanley Parable: A simple game about story that makes perfect sense.” Surely that’s what it is. I hope. Oh good god I hope that’s what The Stanley Parable is. It’s just that sometimes I’m so confused, I’m so lost…what is this game? I just want to understand. I don’t want to feel alone. Please…can you help me understand what’s going on?

Here is a list of the top 22 scariest glitches in games presented by Tats Tops Videos. Enjoy :)
22) Zoo Tycoon - Ghost Animals
Ghosts are a false rumor going around the Zoo Tycoon 2 fanbase. According to the rumor, when your animals die, they turn into ghosts. No evidence has been found of this, a search of the files has revealed nothing, and all reports of “ghosts” can be explained as glitches or lies.
21) Pokemon - MissingNo
MissingNO, is a Pokémon species found in the video games Pokémon Red and Blue. Standing for “Missing Number”, MissingNo. Pokémon are used as error handlers by game developer Game Freak; they appear when the game attempts to access data for a nonexistent Pokémon species. Due to the programming of three in-game events, players can encounter MissingNo. via a glitch. The species was first documented by Nintendo in the May 1999 issue of Nintendo Power.
Encountering MissingNo. causes graphical errors and the mass replication of the sixth item in the player’s item menu; the latter effect resulted in the glitch’s coverage by strategy guides and game magazines. IGN has noted MissingNo.’s appearance in Pokémon Red and Blue as one of the most famous video game glitches. Fans of the series have attempted to rationalize MissingNo. as part of the games’ canon, and sociologists have studied its impact on players.
20) Mirrors Edge - Pedestrians
After level glitching the street level, players would stumble upon a group of tall, low-poly pedestrians with blurred textures. The models would look okay, if not for the strange faces, uncontrollable spinning and somewhat dark appearances. This glitch only happens if the player attempts to manipulate the games’ mechanics in some way.
19) Luigi’s Mansion - Luigi’s Shadow Hangs Himself
According to an urban legend that keeps popping up in the always-reliable gaming message boards, if you go to a certain room (go to the attic and then don’t press anything), stand in a specific spot and wait for lightning to strike, you can see what looks like Luigi’s shadow hanging from the ceiling. As if he had just committed suicide.
There’s some debate about what it actually is: Some say it’s a glitch, while others claim the game was originally meant to be much darker and this is one of the many leftovers from the beta version.
18) FIFA - Faces
Most FIFA games suffered from really creepy facial expressions. Especially when a lot of animations were present. These expressions were extremely common during online games.
17) Goldeneye 64 - Model Spasms
The hardware was so delicate, that tilting or nudging the cartridge while it was playing could wreck all manners of havoc in the game. If the cartridge was tilted, characters would start spinning uncontrollably. The internet meme “Geddan” was made famous because of this glitch.
16) Fallout: New Vegas - Intro
Some early copies of the game resulted in a strange glitch where the characters heads starts turning in a creepy manner.
15) Resident Evil (remake) - Stretched Characters
The remake saw a rare bug upon starting up, where all characters and enemies appeared stretched and distorted. This bug was said to be the cause of corrupted data or the disc being dirty.
14) Witcher - Geralt’s Face
Witcher had a lot of bugs prevalent in the game, but one of the creepiest is when Geralt’s face distorts. The character remains fully functional and is usually fixed when the player switches areas or reloading a save file.
13) Hitman: Blood Money - Corpses
On some levels, you may see corpses on the floor. Some of them start chasing after the player. It’s not known what causes the glitch, but some speculate that the enemy files are corrupted due to frequent loads.
12) Bully: Scholarship Edition - Shaking Characters
When a person grapples someone else, and the player throws a firecracker at them, it usually always results in a glitch where characters start shaking uncontrollably.
11) Super Smash Bros. Brawl - Model Deformity
This glitch came about when fans decided to hack the copies of the game and perform what is known as move set swaps. Changing character’s moves sets rearranges the models as well with horrific deformities.
10) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Ghost Cars
If you ventured out into the heavy country side away from the city, you’ll find cars with no drivers running around. Some will even chase you as if they’re possessed by spirits.
09) Call of Duty 2 - Dead NPCs
Throughout the COD series there have been glitches with corpses, from silent talking faces to strange animations and postures. Many important NPCs with specific lines of dialogue will spawn and in the case of these war games, die quickly before they can even speak. So the game thinks they’re still alive when they shouldn’t be, creating some creepy moments.
08) Battlefield 3 - Giant Soldier
The early versions of the game had some disturbing character glitches with some models. Certain characters would appear extremely large and deformed. This would often frightened players. The glitch has since been patched.
07) Red Dead Redemption - Manimals
While wondering around the game’s vast deserts, the player may come across something unsettling. Characters would fly around the sky like birds, cougarmen would charge at you like zombies, and the snakeman which is a deformed man with his head and torso twisted, facing towards the player with glaring eyes. Fans call them manimals. These were horrifying, bizarre, human animal hybrids.
06) F.E.A.R. 2 - Alma Glitch
In the very first level exists a glitch where Alma would silently stalk the player without vanishing. It is not known what causes the glitch.
05) Sherlock Holmes - Creepy Watson
In the game, the player can switch between Sherlock and Watson at any time. Players needed to make sure that the characters were always in close proximity. The developers never made any walking animations for Watson, so with unintentional results, this ended up teleporting Watson which would freak out players.
04) Skyrim - Living Mannequins of Riften Honeyside Manor
When a player entered the Honeyside Manor basement, they would see mannequins, which enabled players to place armor on them. It was soon discovered that the more they visited the house, the more disturbing things became. The mannequins would appear in different positions from where they would supposed to be. Some would even start to walk around the house, and the armor placed would become invisible. They would also act like a normal person looking at the player and move their heads.
03) Sims 3 - Demon Babies & Demon Pets
Babies and pets seem to turn into deformed monstrosities. This glitch happens when you download custom content into the game. It is also due to missing animations. It can be fixed by patching the game.
02) Left 4 Dead 2 - Jocky Face
One gamer found a horrifying glitch, where the textures from one of the monsters (the jocky) of the game was replaced with the back of a truck.
01) Fallout 3 - Gibs
Apparently, this is a glitch where you kill someone, save your game, then come back. The game thinks that characters should look like masses of body parts and sometimes it forgets to tell those parts to scatter. The characters go back to default positions and have conversations with the player.
Free Ice Cream - Indie Flash/Browser Horror Game
