Watch: Seven gaming urban legends that you might find rather unsettling

Hello(ween) Games.

All across the nation, people are getting ready for Halloween; costumes are being prepared, shopkeepers are amending their egg-selling policies, and games journalists are writing seasonal tie-in features.

Oh look, here's a video about seven creepy gaming urban legends that you may or may not have heard about before, charting Ben Drowned to Polybius. That's timely, isn't it? Be warned though, this video does contain some flashing images, and Christopher Bratt's unthinkably knobbly knees. That's something that'll keep us all up at night, for sure.
