Totally Random List Time! 9/13/13

All words shall be written in blood..... MWA HA HA HA HA- *cough cough*
Ermf. Anyway, it's Friday the Thirteenth. Well, the day after. Let's take a moment to recognize some creepy guys in video games....... Or else...............

Monoko, Yume Nikki
 A rather discrete game, Yume Nikki is a Japanese downloadable game about a girl who refuses to leave her room and must travel through her creepy dreams. Along the way,m she collects effects that alter her environment OR herself. That aside, adjourn yourself to the White Desert, a barren wasteland with mutilated body parts coming from the ground. enter a tunnel and you will find an innocent-appearing girl by the name of Monoko. Use the Spotlight Effect on her, and a shock video will ensue of her flying back and forth with whatever THIS abomination face-lift is.
 Those who have played this game would probably think, "Why not Uboa?" This is another fairly weird character where when you go in a room and turn off the lights, there's a slim chance a weird face will appear and you will be trapped in the room unless you touch him. The problem is, he's got the most derpy face-lift ever. So, Monoko. 
 What makes this creepier are the many fan theories of what the game is really about. My theory, as well as many others, is that the namesake character was in some sort of violent situation, possibly a car crash, explaining how this appears after using the Spotlight. This would also explain how she refuses to leave her room: out of fear. She possibly can't stand it anymore in the end and-SPOILERSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS- jumps off the building and kills herself.

Otto, Berzerk
 A smiley face? Really, Ordinary Gamer? Well, look into those menacing eyes.... Nothing? Let's proceed.
 At the time, Berzerk was an immensely popular shooter. Back then, it was breathtaking. Nowadays, it looks like a bunch of rectangles and sprites. But back to the 1900s. This creep's job is to hunt you down. When the time runs low, this guys gonna try to kill you. And the creepy thing is, he killed two people. Supposedly. Apparently, once to teenagers reached the high score rank, they suddenly had heart attacks and died as Otto smiled from behind the glass. Also, it doesn't help he's a smiley face. That's pretty weird in itself and adds to the surreal quality of the idea of a smiley face out for you.

Everybody on the GameBoy Camera
This, by the way, is totally the picture from the game. No it's not, actually. This is my relative's dog in Pennsylvania. Pretty good picture, no?....... Fine, let's continue.
 If you liked gritty pictures from your GameBoy that you can deface, this sure-as-heck is the game for you. But that wasn't the weird part. There are options. One includes "Run Away." Click on it. Then, proceed to urinate in your pants, it's totally natural. A creepy picture of a defaced Grandma serial killer will pop up and say "What is there to run away from?", followed by a series of more disturbing images. It was every kid's nightmare to click on this. 

The Doctor from Hatoful Boyfriend
Hatoful Boyfriend is like any other dating simulator  But with one difference. It's kind of small, so you probably won't realize it....... You're a human dating pigeons. If you choose to fall for Shuu, a doctor, you don't do so well. He gives you a cooked bird that looks like his assistant, and among other things, in the end, he kills you with a cleaver. Even more confusing, how does a bird hold a cleaver? This guy was NOT the guy to go after. He's a cannibird: get it? Cannibal-bird? *dead silence.* Ugh, fine. Moving on.

Death from Hatoful Boyfriend
Oh yes. If you thought that Shuu was creepy, Hatoful Boyfriend is filled with really weird stuff. Yes, it's weird enough that you play a human girl amongst a bunch of talking pigeons. But if you fail to connect with the birds, you are kidnapped by a group that is monitoring you at all times as an experiment subject. Then, they assassinate you. You are confronted by a nightmarish vision of Death as a bird. This is odd because the usual cheery colors of the game contrast with this bloke's bleak palette.

The Fire Truck, Putt Putt series
Putt Putt is a kid's game. A point-and-click adventure filled to the brim with stupid characters, this creepy guy puts the "P" in Pedobear. One sentence: "Hey Putt-Putt. Wanna see my water hose?" Umm, no. Definitely not. 

There's a lot more creepy characters in video games, but I'll wait for the next Friday the 13th. Any suggestions? Let me know.
