7 fictional video games that we're kind of glad don't exist

8 of 8

#1: BEN Drowned, originally told through Creepypasta

For the sake of my sleep schedule, let's just agree that this is a fictional video game. I don't want to live in a world where this might be real. BEN Drowned is essentially a haunted/possessed/demonic copy of Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. In the original story, the narrator is tormented by "Ben," the previous player of the used cartridge, who attempts to use the narrator to "spread." The story is compelling because the "glitches" seem like they could be real. Not because they're actually real. Right? That would be crazy. This isn't real.

Why this would be cool:

THIS WOULD NOT BE COOL.

Why this is a terrible idea:

Aside from facilitating a malevolent supernatural entity's desire to blur the lines of simulation and reality and consume the lives of its hosts? . . . Nothing I can think of.
