In the video game Payday: The Heist, there’s a brief chance you might be able to see the Witch from Left 4 Dead. She’s behind the locked closet door in the hallway near the reception desk. If you stare at her too long, she’ll jump-scare the player who disturbed her.

Some thought the curse of the Gyroid face in the game Animal Crossing was a glitch at first. Then they found out it was an intentional Easter egg put in by the developers. In the Gamecube version, if you leave town and reset the Gamecube while in another town, you’ll end up looking like a very creepy creature called Gyroid.
