10 Strangest Unsolved Video Game Discoveries – Part IV

10 Strangest Unsolved Video Game Discoveries – Part IV


Sometimes some things are going on out in the
world that make you want to stay inside, only to find something that in a video game that
makes you think… It can’t be that bad out there, right? Today, we’re going to be diving into the
top 10 strangest video game mysteries and discoveries that still remain unsolved to
this day… Part IV. Stay safe, everyone. Emily Wants To Play. “Hello? Pizza’s here!” Thanks to dimencionman for submitting me this
unsolved mystery from the 2016 survival horror game, Emily Wants To Play. OH GOD! Anyway… if you go through this door right
at the beginning of the game and head into the bedroom… What is that? Moving right along… Since the game’s
release, this lamp has laid on its side with a light flickering overhead in the middle
of the room, remaining rather inconspicuous, until the developer released an update in
August 2016, mentioning in the patch notes he ‘made something (that no one ever found)
a little more noticeable.’ This time when players went to the lamp, now
corresponding with the flickering flashes of light were a strange series of buzzing
noises. Mark Zuckerberg on Steam—not the actual
Mark Zuckerberg—posted about the observation on the game’s discussion board, and suggested
that it was Morse code, and Shawn Hitchcock, the developer himself responded with only
this… Despite fairly solid confirmation that the
lamp or the flickering light have to do with something, no one knows what exactly that
something is… making it a still unsolved discovery since the game released in 2016 Oh god, what the hell is that? Okay, I’m out of here before this gets any
worse… OH!! Apex Legends. Thanks to The785 for submitting this discovery
to the Oddheader reddit. Shortly after the recent release of Season
4: Assimilation, Redditor SheeplessWolf was playing around the new Planet Harvester addition
to the map with his friends, when suddenly they noticed something odd, as they saw what
appeared to be a dog or a wolf running around on this walkway in the distance… and when
they went up there they found nothing but a player playing as Bangalore. This occurrence instantly sparked a number
of theories online, the most popular being a potential teaser for the upcoming character
named Loba, a character who was datamined from the files of the game shortly after Apex’s
initial release … whose name also happens to translate to “wolf” in Portuguese. Another theory was it was just another player
in the game, most assumedly as Wraith, possibly Naruto-running across the walkway… though
players such as YouTuber Kevtheking99-YT spent hours trying to recreate the exact angle of
the footage and never once managed to replicate anything close. “We tried this so many times… at the end
of the day, we could not get it.” Seeing it in slow motion, I personally see
rather convincing animation that moves exactly how I would expect someone to animate a dog’s
legs to move, which is really a tough thing to animate, so the idea we ended up with that
accidentally seems pretty strange to me. Intriguingly, shortly after this discovery
was found, many players reported that after the find that they could hear howling throughout
the map, possibly adding some validity to the mystery. [howling] And while perhaps unrelated, Glacier0516 also
recently submitted this footage to me that occurred on the training map shortly after
the update, as he was playing alone when suddenly he was hit out of nowhere… “My abilities don’t work! I’ve been short-circuited!” And then unexpectedly the map started acting
strangely all around him at once… Glitches or not, there’s definitely a lot of creepy,
unexplainable things going on in the world of Apex Legends as of late … Resident Evil 3: Nemisis. Thanks to CycloneJoker for submitting this
mystery through my website oddheader.com. A rather obscure and long-running mystery
lies on this screen near the very beginning of the game, as players noticed what appeared
to be a strange random face in the corner of the screen … what the? …If we were to invert the color of the
image, we can see that it’s … well … definitely a woman’s face…
creepily staring us down from the sky above. Whether or not this was a mistake or intended
has been a contentious debate among the Resident Evil community, as many are skeptical that
the developers would somehow miss this in this kind of highly-detailed, pre-rendered
background … I mean, look there’s even a Capcom easter egg right here for the eagle-eyed
player… Capcom being the publisher of the game… Stranger yet, this “error” wasn’t
ever corrected in any of the games’ ports, including the Dreamcast and Gamecube versions,
which provide a higher resolution image. A popular theory is this may be Regina from
the Dino Crisis series, which is made by the same team as Resident Evil, and while I can
definitely see that, especially with the red hair that appears before we invert the colors,
whoever these mysterious eyes in the sky belong to remains a mystery, and we’ll have to
keep an eye out if any references are made in the upcoming remake… only one thing we
know for sure… She’s always watching… What the Golf. 2019’s What the Golf released on Apple Arcade,
PC, and soon the Nintendo Switch… is a game that definitely fulfills its title. Less a game about golf and more of an endless
stream of random gameplay moments, What the Golf is a ride filled with countless easter
eggs and head-scratching discoveries around every corner. One mystery I found while putt-ing my way
through the hub world was a series of coded messages that could be found on terminals
throughout the game. Digging through the AppleArcade subreddit
I found I wasn’t the first person to notice this. As other redditors discovered the codes
were morse and actually translated into many segmented messages. So far only LadyGwynn on reddit has organized
one of the messages into the assumed correct order and found this message: “SECRET BLUE HORSES AT WHAT THE GOLF .BASEMENT” As of the publishing of this video, nobody
really knows what the secret blue horses are or where this basement is actually supposed
to be. Nor does anyone even know how to fully 100%
the game… unfortunately, it’s going to be difficult solving these mysteries considering
nothing makes sense in this game to begin with… South Park: The Stick of Truth. Thanks to WestbethConvergence for submitting
this mystery to me through my website oddheader.com. South Park viewers may still remember Pip “Lunchie-munchies! Hmm?” “Go away Pip, nobody likes you!” A once prominent character whose role was
delegated to Butters after Season 4, only receiving one speaking line in his last eight
years on the series, until he finally spoke in 2010 and then was immediately squashed
by Mecha-Streisand… South Park fans questioned if this marked
the true end of the character, eventually asking South Park Studios if Pip was actually
dead, who only responded with: “He looked pretty dead to me.” Yet bizarrely, dataminers found in The Stick
of Truth an eerie discovery when combing through the files of the game, as they came across
across Pip’s skull in the files rendered with two creepy glowing eyes. And, thanks to Cunkier on my discord who helped
with additional research, it turns out Pip’s skull is categorized as a weapon… meaning
beating enemies with the demon-possessed skull of a murdered boy is a feature that’s no longer in
the game… Which would probably sound more disturbing
if I wasn’t talking about South Park. Grand Theft Auto 5. Grand Theft Auto V has a number of ongoing
mysteries, from Mt Chiliad, mysterious lights, or even this window that sprays blood that hasn’t been patched out of the game despite numerous reports about it to Rockstar. Odd. Intriguingly, another mystery recently cropped
up through the Casino Heist update, as players could interact with the Madam Nazar fortune
machine, who’s also a character players can sell collectibles to in Red Dead Online. Players noticed it would eventually provide
a random series of numbers, which when rearranged turned out to be a same set of numbers that
can be found in Red Dead Redemption 2, as it could be heard from an unseen, mysterious woman
chanting inside a random outhouse that can be found in the forest… “One… two… three… seven… six…” …Another mystery players have scratched
their heads over since that game’s release in 2018. After obtaining all the numbers from the machine,
it was found if the numbers were plugged into the player’s phone, they would receive
this especially cryptic message from Nazar herself… “You were looking for me? Yes?” “The future is open to me!” “Safe travels.” Whatever the hell that means. No one has found a deeper meaning behind the
numbers or its connection between the two games. And also, I want to mention yet another really
creepy unsolved mystery that still remains in Red Dead Redemption 2, as players discovered
if they went into the depraved town of Butcher Creek at exactly 4 a.m. and peered underneath
this exact house at just the right angle, they could see an ominous, glowing red pentagram
illuminating from beneath the floor below. And… that’s all anybody’s got. No clues or connections to anything in the
game have yet to surface; the only theory anybody has is that it may just explain why
everybody in Butcher Creek is an [bleep]hole. “You son of a [bleep]!” “Alright, simmer down.” Destiny 2. Thanks to Oren Gabriel Bush for submitting
this mystery through Oddheader.com. In September 2018, Bungie introduced the Last
Wish Raid, where players discovered when they came to this door, if they instead decided
to end it all and jump off of this cliff, they could find this hidden path that led to what
is now known as the Wall of Wishes. By shooting precise combinations of patterns
onto the wall, players would unlock random rewards… Such as snazzy head ornaments, a
Paul McCartney song, and confetti headshots known as Grunt Birthday Party which also appeared
in the Halo series. With extensive efforts across the raidsecrets
community on reddit, players found 14 different combinations of prizes from the wall. However, dataminers managed to find that an
unfound 15th wish still existed inside the wall, waiting to be found, with the description
even saying “This one you shall cherish.” A clue was seemingly found for the missing
15th wish when players noticed a reference in an in-game book, explaining if they reached
level 999 and defeated Dul Incaru, they’d unlock the true ending of Dreaming City…
Dreaming City just happening to be the area that holds the Wall of Wishes. At that time, players had to wait a whole
year for hitting level 999 to even be possible in the game, and when player Bagel4k finally
managed to hit level 999 in November 2019 and defeated Dul Incaru once and for all… Jack squat happened. Not with wish 15. Not with anything at all! Later Bungie sent Bagel4k a personal message
with some cryptic cyphers that seemed to hold some new clues that could tie into the Wall
of Wishes. But at that point, the damage had already
been done. Not cool, Bungie. Not cool. Metal Gear Solid. Thanks to Metalray for submitting this crazy
mystery through my discord server. To start, the Metal Gear series is actually
one of the first video games to feature Virtual Reality as a plot point. In game and lore, the series’ characters
use VR in order to prepare for real life scenarios in the field. Virtual Reality also serves as the backdrop
for training mode in the first Metal Gear Solid, where the player, just like the characters,
can learn the game’s mechanics before going into the field. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty upped
the ante with VR even further, playing with Virtual Reality so much in its story, partnered
with the fact the game was somehow more bizarre than the first game, many were sure that a twist
was coming that was going to reveal the whole game was a VR simulation… Except, that
never happened… and some players are still aren’t convinced. A major breakthrough in the theory was seemingly
found when players unearthed an interesting discovery in the first Metal Gear Solid. As players found when they were in the Metal
Gear bay and zoomed all the way up in the corner of this room, they could see what appeared
to be one of the VR targets that doesn’t actually appear anywhere else in the main
story, as they’re only supposed to appear in the VR training mode! For many, this discovery blew the Virtual
Reality mystery case wide open. Is this just a misplaced game asset that somehow
ended up in a viewable portion of the map? Or is it rather what many others believe it
to be: a cryptically placed clue that suggests that the entirety of Metal Gear Solid was
just a simulation? Some even going as far to say that the whole
game was just Raiden in a VR protocol before his character was randomly introduced and took
over the story in Metal Gear Solid 2. Does this prove that Hideo Kojima planned
an elaborate conspiracy from the very start of the series, that would change the whole
context of the entire series with this single discovery? Honestly, being that this Hideo Kojima…
yeah, I believe it. Elite Dangerous. Thanks to CMDR CojeX for submitting this mystery
through Oddheader.com. The Elite series is known for being one of
the longest running and largest open-ended games, with the newest game, Elite Dangerous,
actually being a 1:1 scale of the Milky Way galaxy. This mystery actually begins with the first
installment in the series all the way back in 1984, as the game came with a book that
made mention of a mysterious Raxxla, a planet that supposedly holds a gateway to all the
other universes and was once seized by a secret organization who continues hide its existence
to this day. Back in the day, this led many to believe
that Raxxla was somewhere in the 1984 game, which the developers of that game iterated
many times was not actually the case. However, the developers of the 2014’s Elite
Dangerous sing much a different tune, as they’ve been very vocal that Raxxla does
exist somewhere in Elite Dangerous, except it still hasn’t been found. Weirdly, in 2018, a redditor posted what appeared
to be prerelease images of a mysterious creature known as Thargoids. Even weirder, every time this redditor posted
these images, they were removed from the Elite Dangerous subbreddit, leading people to believe
they were either faked or actually held credibility and could have even been from an ex-developer. When other members questioned this redditor,
he revealed that the location of Raxxla was tied to the Founders World. At one point this location had a mission to
transport a mysterious “SAP 8 core containers” that no one had ever seen before … and then
even stranger still, these missions were swiftly removed from the game… assumedly because
the developers felt it brought players a little too close to the secret of Raxxla… Unfortunately, looks like players are going
to have to find Raxxla the hard way. Considering it takes a ship traveling at lightspeed
200,000 years to travel the distance of the Milky Way, which again Elite Dangerous is
the scale of… I’m not holding my breath anyone’s going
to find Raxxla anytime soon… If you enjoyed this video, please subscribe. If you know of any other mysteries that I
