    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    My problem with game creepy pastas (and most creepy pastas) is that I can't see any of them happening, The just don't seem that realistic, and I don't believe that you could create haunted software.

    Creepypasta is often so poorly written I can never make it even half-way through it.
    Even the ones that are "well" written aren't in any way creepy or worrying...though maybe Corpse Party has dulled my sense of fear.

    Are you telling me you're not disturbed by Squidward's "HYPER REALISTIC EYES," man?

    Creepypasta is only lives up to its name when it's an actual dish that's been left out too long and now has mold and bugs worming around in it. Now that's the stuff of nightmares.

    I forgot
    Sure. Just let us know when something remotely tolerable comes around instead of whatever indie shit there is now.

    My favorite wasnt a game creepy pasta, because game creepy pastas usually arent that great. The Russian sleep experiment ones were the best, but the ending ruined it.

    Creepy pastas, including game-related ones, suffer from lame endings. You could say game creepy pastas have a crappy resolution :tpi:

    Well if you think about it......like in Airlock it's a whole situation where you're supposed to think 'what if this game existed' and all that. It doesn't hype up a big ending. It just goes as far as someone would go when thinking up something like that, but it's still creepy.

    A lot of game creepypastas aren't even about haunted games. Just creepy bootlegs or hacks. Some of them may be possible but some might not be but either way the haunted game thing is only present in maybe half of the game creepypastas.




    Yeah the ending of that one was awful because first there were 5 subjects then one died and made 4, then one died and made 3, then one died and made 3. Which is laugh inducing for me because the author needed to get their shit together then.
