We all know Grand Theft Auto for being one of the best selling games out there, and for good reason. It has massive worlds to explore, and many characters to meet. For those who haven’t played GTA… Which is probably none of you, GTA is a game series where you explore a massive overworld and get involved with all sorts of crimes. From being a gang member in San Andreas to joining multiple mob families in GTA IV. But what really sells this game is the exploration. There is just so much to do in each game and so much places to explore. And for those who are truly adventurous, there are tons of things to find… But then there are some creepy things that can be found. And trust me, for a game that is about crime, there sure is a lot of creepy things in it. So, lets not waste any more time.
#10: Ghost Cars from San Andreas
Now, this one really shouldn’t count as being creepy, since the Ghost Cars are nothing more than a glitch and less of an event that the creators intentionally put into the game, but the sheer terror they brought San Andreas players is what makes it worthy of being put on the list. For those who don’t know, Ghost Cars are glitched cars that move on their own, with no driver, making it seem like the car is haunted and has a ghost driving it. People over the years have believed that all of this was intentionally put into the game, but really, these cars were just an error in programming, which lead to the cars moving on their own. But, the Ghost Cars have become a legend in the GTA games, which is why they are on the list
#9: Baby Stroller from GTA IV
The Ghost Cars may have just been a glitch, but the Baby Stroller…. May also be a glitch, but is a little bit more creepy. Underneath Dukes Expressway is a baby stroller that moves on it’s own. Now, of course, this could be a glitch, where the game thinks that the stroller is on a hill, so it should be sliding down. However, what makes the Baby Stroller creepier than the Ghost Cars is the fact that… this is a baby stroller. Now, what goes in a baby stroller? Babies, obviously. Now, the creepy thing about this is that there are no kids in any of the GTA games. Now, why would there be a baby stroller in a game that completely lacks children? That question alone is what makes the Baby Stroller more creepy than the Ghost Cars… But, some will still say the Ghost Cars are scarier. Oh well, that’s their opinion.
#8: Wheelchair from San Andreas
Don’t worry, this isn’t another glitched object on wheels that moves around on it’s own, giving the illusion that it is cursed. This is more of an easter egg then a glitched item. Near Fisher’s Lagoon, you’ll be able to find this wheelchair just lying there. What makes it so creepy is that this wheelchair is actually a reference to the slasher classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Yes, the movie about a psychotic family with a murderous habit that kills people that come near their home actually has an easter egg based off of it in this game. That is honestly pretty creepy… Also, it has the same textures as dumpsters in the game… Just felt like pointing that out.
#7: Apartment 3C from Vice City
Here is another easter egg from the GTA series, this one being a bit more well known then the wheelchair. In an apartment near Ocean Beach, it would seem impossible to walk into the building, as it would seem like you can’t get in. However, you are able to walk through the door and enter the apartment. Inside, you will find an apartment room that looks nice at first glance, but once you walk into the bathroom, it doesn’t seem so nice. Inside the bathroom is a whole bunch of blood stains, as well as a chainsaw that you are able to collect and use. As it turns out, this is actually another easter egg that references a movie. This time, it references Scarface, which this game seems to reference a lot. But trust me, as awesome as the movie was, it doesn’t keep this GTA easter egg from being any less creepy.
#6: Kingdom Come from GTA III
Now, with a game series like GTA, you were bound to get to a game that has something to do with drugs eventually. SPANK is a drug in GTA III that is a lot like crystal meth, that affects people physically and mentally in numerous ways. And nowhere in the game is that shown better than in the mission Kingdom Come. After helping the Uptown Yardies enough times, you will then be told to get the leader a car left in a parking lot. However, it turns out that it was a trap laid by Catalina, and you are then attacked by SPANK-ed pushers, who are now running at you with bombs strapped to their chests. In other words, you are being attacked by drug pushing suicide bombers. And they are always shouting and laughing in creepy ways that make this mission so much more creepy. It’s amazing how we went from glitched cars to druggies with a murderous lust. And it only gets worse from here.
#5: The Infinite 8 Killer from GTA V
Here it is, one of the most popular easter eggs in GTA V. What makes this easter egg so creepy is how Rockstar made it so popular. The Infinite 8 Killer is known as Merle Abrahams, who lived in Sunny Shores, where he began to have an obsession with the number eight, calling it an infinity sign turned sideways. After a while, he then murdered eight male joggers. After a while, he was arrested, and was placed in jail, where he died before his trial. After a while, his home was burned down, which can still be found in Sunny Shores. And if that wasn’t creepy enough, you can even find his victims in body bags all around the game. And if that wasn’t bad enough, this is only the first thing on the list to come from the fifth game. I won’t blame you if you leave now.
#4: The Heart of Liberty City from GTA IV
This has to be one of the most popular easter eggs in any GTA game. On Happiness Island, there is a large statue that resembles the Statue of Liberty, called the Statue of Happiness. There is a door that you can enter by jumping out of a helicopter. Next to the door is a sign that says No Hidden Content This Way, so naturally, you ignore the sign and walk through the door. Inside, you will see a long ladder. Once you climb up it, you will then be greeted by a giant beating heart that is hanging by chains. This sort of thing is just so out of place in a GTA game. Granted, all the other stuff before was pretty out of place, but… Seriously, at least some of the stuff were just glitches. This… Is a giant heart that beats and hangs by chains. This looks like something from a Silent Hill game rather than a GTA game. But still, it’s an easter egg. It had to be something creepy eventually
#3: Eddie Low from GTA IV
What’s worse than hearing about a serial killer that was in the city as you. How about having a serial killer be right next to you. That is the best way to describe Eddie Low. Eddie has all the traits of a psychotic killer. He mutilates people, preforms necrophilia, had a bad childhood, and enjoys all sorts of sexual acts that most people would be disgusted of. The first time you meet him, you have to drive him to the docks so he can dispose of a body, where he tells you about his life. He also wants to move his murder spree to a different location to hear the different accents from the screams his victims make. Also, the second time you meet him, he tries to kill Niko, who kills Eddie in self defense. I’m not one for killing people, but I think it’s for the best of the entirety of Liberty City that Eddie died…. Just saying.
#2: Ghost of Mt. Gordo from GTA V
Now, this is easily the scariest easter egg in GTA V. Around 23:00 to 0:00 at the peak of Mount Gordo, you will see the ghost of a woman that you can only see with your sniper rifle, as getting closer to her will result in her disappearing. However, next to the ghost is the name Jock written on the rock. Now, normally, a ghost girl is scary enough, but what makes it scarier is how it came to be. As it turns out, the ghost is actually Jolene Cranley-Evans, the wife of Jock Cranley, a character in the game who is known as a famous actor. Before he was famous, he lived Blaine County, away from the city of Los Santos. However, he soon wanted to become a stuntman, to which Jolene rejected, so during a hike around Mount Gordo, he pushed Jolene off a cliff, killing her. This alone is what makes this the creepiest easter egg in GTA V… But is it the creepiest thing ever in GTA V… Well…
#1: By the Book from GTA V
Okay, some of you may argue that this is not that creepy. I mean, this is a mission that is straight out in the open. How is it creepy… Because of what you have to do. In this mission, Michael has to assassinate a terrorist for the FIB while Trevor gets information out of one of them. It is Trevor’s side of the mission alone that makes this the creepiest thing in any GTA game. While you are getting information, you have all sorts of options to torture the guy with. And what’s worse is that you HAVE to do it. You have to torture this guy in order to continue the game. And it is just disturbing. From hitting him with a wrench, to pulling his teeth out, to electrocuting him, to goddamn waterboarding the guy. And throughout the torture scene, Trevor is enjoying every second of it. It’s just disturbing. And this is also how most interrogations go in some ways today, so it is very close to reality with this. And I don’t think I need to mention that this was so disturbing that controversy broke out and Target even stopped selling the game for those reasons. Yeah, it’s no doubt that this is one of the creepiest, if not the creepiest thing in the entire GTA series.
Well, there you have it. Did you enjoy the list? Tell me what you thought of it below. With that, I will see you all next time.
