Emily Wants To Play.
“Hello? Pizza's here!” Thanks to dimencionman for submitting me thisunsolved mystery from the 2016 survival horror game, Emily Wants To Play.
OH GOD! Anyway.
if you go through this door rightat the beginning of the game and head into the bedroom… What is that? Moving right along… Since the game’srelease, this lamp has laid on its side with a light flickering overhead in the middleof the room, remaining rather inconspicuous, until the developer released an update inAugust 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, nowcorresponding with the flickering flashes of light were a strange series of buzzingnoises.
Mark Zuckerberg on Steam—not the actualMark Zuckerberg—posted about the observation on the game’s discussion board, and suggestedthat it was Morse code, and Shawn Hitchcock, the developer himself responded with onlythis… Despite fairly solid confirmation that thelamp or the flickering light have to do with something, no one knows what exactly thatsomething 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 anyworse.
OH!! Apex Legends.
Thanks to The785 for submitting this discoveryto the Oddheader reddit.
Shortly after the recent release of Season4: Assimilation, Redditor SheeplessWolf was playing around the new Planet Harvester additionto the map with his friends, when suddenly they noticed something odd, as they saw whatappeared to be a dog or a wolf running around on this walkway in the distance… and whenthey went up there they found nothing but a player playing as Bangalore.
This occurrence instantly sparked a numberof theories online, the most popular being a potential teaser for the upcoming characternamed Loba, a character who was datamined from the files of the game shortly after Apex’sinitial release … whose name also happens to translate to “wolf” in Portuguese.
Another theory was it was just another playerin the game, most assumedly as Wraith, possibly Naruto-running across the walkway… thoughplayers such as YouTuber Kevtheking99-YT spent hours trying to recreate the exact angle ofthe footage and never once managed to replicate anything close.
“We tried this so many times… at the endof the day, we could not get it.
” Seeing it in slow motion, I personally seerather convincing animation that moves exactly how I would expect someone to animate a dog’slegs to move, which is really a tough thing to animate, so the idea we ended up with thataccidentally seems pretty strange to me.
Intriguingly, shortly after this discoverywas found, many players reported that after the find that they could hear howling throughoutthe map, possibly adding some validity to the mystery.
[howling] And while perhaps unrelated, Glacier0516 alsorecently submitted this footage to me that occurred on the training map shortly afterthe 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 actingstrangely 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 thismystery through my website oddheader.
A rather obscure and long-running mysterylies on this screen near the very beginning of the game, as players noticed what appearedto be a strange random face in the corner of the screen … what the? …If we were to invert the color of theimage, 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 intendedhas been a contentious debate among the Resident Evil community, as many are skeptical thatthe developers would somehow miss this in this kind of highly-detailed, pre-renderedbackground … I mean, look there’s even a Capcom easter egg right here for the eagle-eyedplayer… Capcom being the publisher of the game.
Stranger yet, this “error” wasn’tever 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 fromthe Dino Crisis series, which is made by the same team as Resident Evil, and while I candefinitely 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 tokeep an eye out if any references are made in the upcoming remake… only one thing weknow 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 endlessstream of random gameplay moments, What the Golf is a ride filled with countless eastereggs and head-scratching discoveries around every corner.
One mystery I found while putt-ing my waythrough the hub world was a series of coded messages that could be found on terminalsthroughout the game.
Digging through the AppleArcade subredditI found I wasn’t the first person to notice this.
As other redditors discovered the codeswere morse and actually translated into many segmented messages.
So far only LadyGwynn on reddit has organizedone 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, nobodyreally knows what the secret blue horses are or where this basement is actually supposedto be.
Nor does anyone even know how to fully 100%the game… unfortunately, it’s going to be difficult solving these mysteries consideringnothing makes sense in this game to begin with.
South Park: The Stick of Truth.
Thanks to WestbethConvergence for submittingthis mystery to me through my website oddheader.
South Park viewers may still remember Pip “Lunchie-munchies! Hmm?” “Go away Pip, nobody likes you!” A once prominent character whose role wasdelegated to Butters after Season 4, only receiving one speaking line in his last eightyears on the series, until he finally spoke in 2010 and then was immediately squashedby Mecha-Streisand… South Park fans questioned if this markedthe true end of the character, eventually asking South Park Studios if Pip was actuallydead, who only responded with: “He looked pretty dead to me.
” Yet bizarrely, dataminers found in The Stickof Truth an eerie discovery when combing through the files of the game, as they came acrossacross Pip’s skull in the files rendered with two creepy glowing eyes.
And, thanks to Cunkier on my discord who helpedwith additional research, it turns out Pip’s skull is categorized as a weapon… meaningbeating enemies with the demon-possessed skull of a murdered boy is a feature that's no longer inthe game… Which would probably sound more disturbingif I wasn’t talking about South Park.
Grand Theft Auto 5.
Grand Theft Auto V has a number of ongoingmysteries, 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.
Intriguingly, another mystery recently croppedup through the Casino Heist update, as players could interact with the Madam Nazar fortunemachine, who’s also a character players can sell collectibles to in Red Dead Online.
Players noticed it would eventually providea random series of numbers, which when rearranged turned out to be a same set of numbers thatcan be found in Red Dead Redemption 2, as it could be heard from an unseen, mysterious womanchanting inside a random outhouse that can be found in the forest.
“One… two… three… seven… six…” …Another mystery players have scratchedtheir 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 receivethis 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 thenumbers or its connection between the two games.
And also, I want to mention yet another reallycreepy unsolved mystery that still remains in Red Dead Redemption 2, as players discoveredif they went into the depraved town of Butcher Creek at exactly 4 a.
and peered underneaththis exact house at just the right angle, they could see an ominous, glowing red pentagramilluminating from beneath the floor below.
And… that’s all anybody’s got.
No clues or connections to anything in thegame have yet to surface; the only theory anybody has is that it may just explain whyeverybody in Butcher Creek is an [bleep]hole.
“You son of a [bleep]!” “Alright, simmer down.
” Destiny 2.

In September 2018, Bungie introduced the LastWish Raid, where players discovered when they came to this door, if they instead decidedto end it all and jump off of this cliff, they could find this hidden path that led to whatis now known as the Wall of Wishes.
By shooting precise combinations of patternsonto the wall, players would unlock random rewards.
Such as snazzy head ornaments, aPaul McCartney song, and confetti headshots known as Grunt Birthday Party which also appearedin the Halo series.
With extensive efforts across the raidsecretscommunity on reddit, players found 14 different combinations of prizes from the wall.
However, dataminers managed to find that anunfound 15th wish still existed inside the wall, waiting to be found, with the descriptioneven saying “This one you shall cherish.
” A clue was seemingly found for the missing15th wish when players noticed a reference in an in-game book, explaining if they reachedlevel 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 wholeyear for hitting level 999 to even be possible in the game, and when player Bagel4k finallymanaged 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 messagewith some cryptic cyphers that seemed to hold some new clues that could tie into the Wallof Wishes.
But at that point, the damage had alreadybeen done.
Not cool, Bungie.
Metal Gear Solid.
Thanks to Metalray for submitting this crazymystery through my discord server.
To start, the Metal Gear series is actuallyone of the first video games to feature Virtual Reality as a plot point.
In game and lore, the series’ charactersuse VR in order to prepare for real life scenarios in the field.
Virtual Reality also serves as the backdropfor 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 uppedthe ante with VR even further, playing with Virtual Reality so much in its story, partneredwith the fact the game was somehow more bizarre than the first game, many were sure that a twistwas coming that was going to reveal the whole game was a VR simulation… Except, thatnever happened… and some players are still aren’t convinced.
A major breakthrough in the theory was seeminglyfound when players unearthed an interesting discovery in the first Metal Gear Solid.
As players found when they were in the MetalGear bay and zoomed all the way up in the corner of this room, they could see what appearedto be one of the VR targets that doesn’t actually appear anywhere else in the mainstory, as they’re only supposed to appear in the VR training mode! For many, this discovery blew the VirtualReality mystery case wide open.
Is this just a misplaced game asset that somehowended up in a viewable portion of the map? Or is it rather what many others believe itto be: a cryptically placed clue that suggests that the entirety of Metal Gear Solid wasjust a simulation? Some even going as far to say that the wholegame was just Raiden in a VR protocol before his character was randomly introduced and tookover the story in Metal Gear Solid 2.
Does this prove that Hideo Kojima plannedan elaborate conspiracy from the very start of the series, that would change the wholecontext of the entire series with this single discovery? Honestly, being that this Hideo Kojima…yeah, I believe it.

The Elite series is known for being one ofthe 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 firstinstallment in the series all the way back in 1984, as the game came with a book thatmade mention of a mysterious Raxxla, a planet that supposedly holds a gateway to all theother universes and was once seized by a secret organization who continues hide its existenceto this day.
Back in the day, this led many to believethat Raxxla was somewhere in the 1984 game, which the developers of that game iteratedmany times was not actually the case.
However, the developers of the 2014’s EliteDangerous sing much a different tune, as they’ve been very vocal that Raxxla doesexist somewhere in Elite Dangerous, except it still hasn’t been found.
Weirdly, in 2018, a redditor posted what appearedto be prerelease images of a mysterious creature known as Thargoids.
Even weirder, every time this redditor postedthese images, they were removed from the Elite Dangerous subbreddit, leading people to believethey 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 totransport a mysterious “SAP 8 core containers” that no one had ever seen before … and theneven stranger still, these missions were swiftly removed from the game… assumedly becausethe developers felt it brought players a little too close to the secret of Raxxla… Unfortunately, looks like players are goingto have to find Raxxla the hard way.
Considering it takes a ship traveling at lightspeed200, 000 years to travel the distance of the Milky Way, which again Elite Dangerous isthe scale of… I’m not holding my breath anyone’s goingto find Raxxla anytime soon… If you enjoyed this video, please subscribe.
