Black Mirror: Playtest (2016) dir. Dan Trachtenberg

What, a girl never beat you at Street Fighter?

In the sci-fi horror game Dead Space, the player takes control of a man with the subtle first name of Isaac and just-as-subtle last name of Clarke and experiences a terrifying, astronomical hellscape as seen through Isaac’s eyes (or, more accurately, the eyes of an invisible person standing 2 feet behind him). Isaac’s mission is to investigate a mining ship that has been infested by vicious space monsters. Secretly driving Isaac through the hordes of space zombies is his desire to rescue his girlfriend, Nicole, who had been the ship’s medical officer before the crew caught a bad case of dead. Despite encountering her several times in the game, when the player reaches the end, it is revealed that Nicole has been dead the whole time, and all of Isaac’s visions of her have been hallucinations, which isn’t to be confused with the ending of The Sixth Sense or that really sad episode of Scrubs. The hallucinations were induced by a giant alien stone – a “monolith,” if you will – which was bent on the destruction of humanity, as these things so often are.

Man, who could have seen any of that trippy shit coming? Oh wait: YOU COULD HAVE, if you had just looked at the names of the game’s chapters.

While unremarkable at first, look more closely at the first letter in each chapter’s title:

6 Incredible Spoilers Hidden In Famous Video Games

Few groups of people are better at making shit up than GTA fans. For example, remember when everyone said you could run into a woman’s ghost in GTA IV? Let’s set the record straight: there’s no lady ghost in that game, people. Come on.

It’s in GTA V.

Yep, that happens. Presumably as a way to address the rumors of ghostly activity and the accusations of misogyny in one fell swoop, Rockstar Games went ahead and hid a she-spook in the latest game. If you want to see it for yourself, you’ll need to: 1) be at Mount Gordo between 11 p.m. and midnight on the game’s clock, and 2) make sure your cat isn’t in the room while you’re playing, because if it jumps on you when the ghost appears you’re gonna die for real. Then there’ll be two ghosts here, and we’re not sure if we can handle that.

You can see the ghost only through a sniper scope, since it has intimacy issues and tends to disappear when you get too close. However, if you do have the balls to go stand on the rocks where the ghost used to be floating, you might notice it leaves a message written in blood.

7 Creepy Video Game Easter Eggs We Wish We Never Found

JESUS LOVES YOU

And why he wouldn’t? You’re pretty much doing a great job fighting demons!

So yeah, this pretty cool guy called Brian Skeel discovered a new easter egg hidden in the OST of the new DOOM. According to a post on Reddit, Mick Gordon has confirmed it, and he also hinted that there’s three more to be found.

So basically what happens is that when you isolate a segment of the last track of the official OST (IV. DOOM), you switch it to monoaural and reverse it, you can hear a voice saying “Jesus Loves You”. Quite the far cry from the pentagrams in “Cyberdemon”, and quite the way from Mick to troll back at the people who flipped their pancakes at the first easter egg.

Now the question remains, what are the other three?

Grand Theft Auto V, like all the other entries in the GTA franchise, is a game that lets you live out all the criminal fantasies that have ever lived hopefully only inside your head. The one thing you can’t pretend to be within the game’s universe is a serial killer (what you’re doing would be considered more of a spree killing) but you can find one lurking in the background, if you know where to look.

In GTA5, you can visit an abandoned house that was once owned by someone named Merle Abrahams, and spray painted on the wall is an ominous message: “THERE WILL BE 8.”

If you go inside, there’s another message painted on the wall: “8 IS JUST INFINITY STOOD UP.” And on a nearby rock, you can find a bunch of graffiti of 8s or infinity symbols, as well as a poem.

So already you can tell that there’s someone out there who has a weird obsession with the number 8, and who has made the genius observation that 8 looks like a sideways infinity symbol, so we’re obviously dealing with someone whose powers of deduction are second to none.
