Cursed games! You want to do this again? Really. Okay. Hello and welcome back to the Most amazing channel on the internet. I am your host Rebecca Felgate and today I am bringing you a part three to the of the Top 10 Cursed Games You Shouldn’t Play Part 3.
Before we get into this video, why don’t you guys let me know what your favourite game is – be it video game, card game, board game…all of them! Mine is definitely Settlers of Catan check this website.
10 - Bingo It might seem like a glorious game for senior citizens but it turns out that Bingo has been behind a very high number of deaths! Honestly when I think high drama, I don’t tend to think Bingo…but I am wrong. There are far too many instances to report in one point, so I will just mention a few. In 2002 tech worker Brett Keeton managed to hack a Vegas bingo machine into allowing him to play more cards than he paid for.
When he realised he had been found out, he committed suicide by jumping from San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. In 2012 a 25 year old woman in the Philippines killed herself the day after losing 400 us dollars in bingo. In the same year a former marine killed a 65 year old woman outside a bingohall in Jacksonville. Because of the demographic of their clientele, Bingo halls are often the scenes of deaths, too… old age pensioners die of heart attacks in all the excitement. In 2014 Gala Bingo in the UK came under fire when a game of bingo was played on despite an 87 year old woman dying in the middle.
Do I really think Bingo is cursed? Well, no. Do I think it is best enjoyed responsibly? Absolutely.
9 - Fallout 3 This has now kind of been disproved, but at the time of release, a lot of people were worried that fallout 3 was cursed. Why?
Well there was some spooky stuff going on hidden within the game that led a lot of people to believe that it was spookily predicting the future. The conspiracy theory arose when players said that the morse code that is broadcast by stations in the game was accompanied by a DJ announcer that said things like The Queen has Died today, followed by a bout of Morse Code that translated into a date. The Queen’s death date was set at 2014, but she is still surviving and thriving.
If Britney wins an Oscar in 2023, as predicted in the game, I’ll officially be worried again. Game designers, Bethesda have denied there are any hidden messages in the game… but all it takes is one twisted game designer…who knows. Speaking of twisted game designers, is that what is going on here?
8 - Killswitch If the urban legends are to be believed, Kill Switch was a game created by Russians in the soviet union era. It is said that between 5 to 10 thousand copies of the game were released in the dwindling days of the soviet in 1989. The game was a horror game in which you had to battle demons and monsters in an abandoned coal mine.
Allegedly no one ever proved they completed the game as when you were done, it would magically delete itself from your computer. Weird. In 2005, the rumour goes that an unopened copy cropped up in Japan and was played by Yamamoto Ryuichi. Ryuichi set up a Youtube channel to document his game play but unfortunately he only ever made one video – a video of him staring at his computer and crying.
That is the last we have ever seen or heard from him….
7 - Jumanji Did I want to add a fun one for the middle of the list, or is making three parts of this video a bit of a stretch…you decide! For the purposes of this video, I wish there was a real life Jumanji! Jumanji the movie was originally released in 1995 but saw a revamp in 2017.
The original, two kids find a magical board game – a CURSED magical board game - that unleashes a plague of dangers that can only be stopped by completing the game. My lasting image from Jumanji is when the floor swallows them. I am going to go out there and say this was one of the best movies of the 1990s. in 2017, the cursed game was a video game…which I somehow think is less cool.
The original board game looked awesome! You can actually buy Jumanji as a board game these days, too.
6 - Berzerk Ah, the legend of Berserk is the top video game urban legend, isn’t it! I am surprised i haven't mentioned it yet! Berzerk is a classic arcade era game that let you battle robots. Hurrah!
Less on the hurrah side of things – the game is the first ever video game to be linked to the death of a human. I love how I said it like loads have been linked to deaths of animals… anyway, in 1981, Jeff Dailey died playing the game. * Just 1 year later, a young healthy 18 year old dropped dead in front of the machine.
Peter Burkowski has just set a new high score for the game and as he stepped away, proud of his achievement, he dropped down dead. Both deaths were ruled as heart attacks…and you can imagine what the headlines in the 80s were like. A good number of people actually did start to believe Berzerk was cursed.
5 - Virtual Girlfriend There are many reasons not to play Virtual Girlfriend, the game that illegally used Mia Khalifa as a covergirl. One… like, dude, come on. And two, it is cursed.
By cursed I mean that the company who made the came made it as a malware scam and you could end up getting our credit and debit card details stolen. The malware in the game was also able to access phone numbers, contacts and read your texts. Since the dawn of the age of the smartphone, surreptitious and illicit companies have been creating dodgy phone games specifically designed to steal data and worse.
4 - Curse of Scotland Playing cards were invented by the Chinese in around the 9th Century.
They are the oldest game that we humans still regularly enjoy playing today. With a long history has came a lotttt of strange instances with playing cards. On the surface level, card games are instrumental in many gambling games, which have tempted people into losing more than they have. While we could consider this to be a curse, perhaps there is something even deeper going on. The nickname the curse of Scotland is specifically applied to the nine of diamonds card, which is considered to be particular bad luck in cards. The name is further applied to people who seem to have spells of bad luck in a number of card games, leading to their misfortune.
Have they had the curse of Scotland bestowed upon them? Ah, we have a good old fashioned Las Vegas Urban legend on the go!
3 - The Curse of Megabucks Megabucks is a game created by International Game Technology and is a Nevada lottery but also the name of a slot machine popular on the Vegas Strip.
The rumours are that if you win the megabucks from Mega bucks, you will become cursed. It is said that the majority of players who have become millionaires from Megabucks have died early, tragic deaths. One example is Cynthia Jay-Brennan.
Who won $34.9-million on the Megabucks Machine at the Desert Inn Casino in Vegas in the year 2000. Only Just 6 weeks later, she was tragically involved in an car crash with her sister. Sadly, her sister was killed instantly and the jackpot winner needed all of her limbs amputated, leaving her as a quadriplegic. Similar stories of death and misfortune have surrounded other jackpot winners. Sure, you might win big, but would it be worth it?
2 - Monopoly Ah, Monopoly. Remember Yahtzee from episode one? Well, Monopoly is regularly involved in cases of domestic violence. We could talk about all of those cases, but, like with Yahtzee, they are plentiful.
Instead I am going to talk about something perhaps even creepier. Have you ever hear of the Mandela effect? This is where people think that we are living in a different dimension or universe from that which they grew up in.
It is called the Mandela Effect because of a situation that occurred where some people were in total belief that equal rights fighter and former president of South Africa died in prison in the 1970s…whereas in actuality he was released from jail and died in 2014. To cut a long story short, this had led a lot of people to believe we are living in many parallel universes. There are loads of examples of this, and one comes from the humble game of Monopoly. Many people swear that Mr Monopoly had a monocle, others are equally adamant that he never had one. Which do you think?
1 - Momo This game has a lot of similarities with Blue Whale but is a different social media game sweeping it's cruise across the internet. So the game involves texting a mysterious phone number with a terrifying bulgy eyed bird woman avatar. That doesn’t sound too scary, but it is…have a look! The mystery number then replies and sends back a series of challenges and disturbing threats as well as bombarding them with spooky and often horrifying images. The civil guard of Colombia made an announcement demanding nobody plays Mono or engages with the number. They did this in response to the suicides of two teenagers who had played the game and received texts demanding they kill themselves.
Unfortunately the game has also spread across the world, sparking suicides in Argentina and India and scaring parents and kids alike elsewhere. Do not play MOMO. It is sick and twisted cyberbullying.

Gambling takes several forms. You can bet on sports, cards or you can play lotteries and machine games. You can even gamble online. In general, gambling is harmless. Many people gamble for fun, however, there is a population of people that gamble so much that it becomes an obsession that inhibits their normal life activities and leads to harmful effects.
The first harmful effect gambling can have on you is financial. In order to play you need money. Many casinos have developed low cost games to entice more people to play their games of chance. People on limited budgets are attracted by low cost games like nickel Keno, penny bingo and low stakes poker. However, many people lose track of how much money they are actually putting into these games, and after hours of playing these low cost games, hundreds, if not thousands of dollars can be spent. This puts many players into a difficult financial position.
The second harmful effect gambling can have on you is psychological. Gambling can become an impulse and lead to an addiction. People who become addicted to card games can gamble away their food money, their rent money, their homes and eventually, their lives.
The third harmful effect gambling can have on you is social. People who gamble online a lot are missing out on social interactions that can enrich their lives. If a person develops an online gambling addiction, they may spend most of their waking hours online, isolated from the world. This is not healthy and it can lead to feelings of isolation, depression and agoraphobia.
The final harmful effect that gambling can have on you is emotional. Slot casino games, and gambling in general, is designed so that you are going to lose money. Constantly losing at a game can impact your self esteem and make you feel that you are a loser. The wins that you do achieve only add to the problem. They give you false hope that you will walk away a millionaire and they entice you to play more. Unfortunately, this enticement leads you to gamble away all the money that you won plus some.
I hope you have found this article interesting. Please, feel free to ask questions regarding article. I could not express how pleased I am to get your feedback, I would appreciate it very much.
A hybrid RPG+SI am Game Sneak-Peak Review
Image taken from official Stardew Valley website
I do not know about you guys, but I do not really believe that for a game to be great, it has to have weep-worthy graphics. I actually like playing good quality games where the graphics is not as godly as let us say, mass effect. I find it nostalgic and endearing when I play games that has the pixelated thing going on like on Terraria or other sim games on my smartphone (a present from my father. So yes, I am still a qualified poor college student) .
Now having said that, Chucklefish LTD is going to publish a ConcernedApe creation, an RPG+Simulation game called Stardew Valley (Note: Chucklefish LTD are the ones currently developing the sci-fi sandbox game with the same 2-bit style called Starbound).
Known Features So Far
(Note: Unlike Starbound this is not a sidescrolling game. I also think this is a game for Harvest Moon Fans everywhere. I am excited for this game to come out so that I can do a full on game review on it for you guys.)
There is a lot of things you can do in this game. Not only do you get to work on your farm, but you get to interact with the NPC in your village (30 characters I believe), and even woo that sexay thang you got your eyes on and eventually marry him/her. Sounds Familiar? I am currently playing Harvest Moon for 3DS and it is very similar to this version of HM. Now, similarly to HM, you may customize your characters appearance as well as customize your home with wallpapers that you can apparently purchase from the local store. There will also be numerous furniture choices.
The game also has a certain feature that intrigues me. You are able to make choices where the consequences of your action can make or break your land.
here is a preview of the game:
You will be able to play 4-people co-op:
Build and manage your farm!
Of course a farm would not be complete without animals to raise! (This is my favorite feature, they are just so cute!)
Now what about the RPG/Adventure side of this game? Well you get to explore caves and kill shi~.
Yup, no rest for the wicked farmers here.~ here is a sneak peek for you guys. Check it out:
I will keep you guys updated with the game =) if anymore information comes out concerning features and updates Ill post it up.
Now, knowing these guys, I am pretty sure we are going to see some hefty amount of contents. I am actually confident that this game is going to be fun indeed. What do you guys think?
Thank you for reading my humble ramblings.
We also have planned
