Okay. This is something that’s stuck with me for a very long time. And, I’m almost positive it was my very young brain playing tricks on me. But, I’m traumatized nonetheless, so… idk.
I was 5 or 6 years old when I played The Hobbit for Gamecube, and in the beginning when you’re in Bilbo’s house and Gandalf comes to visit, I waited a while in his house, doing whatever it is a 6 year old kid who can hardly read/write, let alone play video games would do: just walk around the house.
Anyways, I swear to god that Gandalf’s skin changed from it’s normal tone to a grey-ish skeleton like texture. I was so scared I immediately turned off the Gamecube and I didn’t touch the game for weeks.
I’ve never heard/seen any evidence of this happening to anyone else, and I have no reason to believe the developers would even include such a thing in the first place, but this memory is so clear to me.
This is the first time I’ve ever told this story.
I think it’s so hilarious now, considering how ludicrous this sounds, and how kind of obscure that specific game is.
