I’ve played a lot of video games, but outside ones like Silent Hill, I can’t remember a game every terrifying me like GTAV did one day.
I was messing around with Dave, riding around on a motorcycle around Grove Street. Somehow pissed off of the Ballas. Dave got shot a few times, but we got away. Went to Legion Square, where for whatever reason, I decided to punch him (using a glitch).
Normally when he does this, it will fail the mission, but if I cause it, it usually won’t fail the mission. I just have to run off and then run back to get him standing:
Only this time, it got weird and creepy.
The first thing I noticed was that Dave was bleeding:
I then happened to get a good look at his face and the fearful look in his face creeped me the hell out:
I called 911 several times, but the dumb fucking paramedics wouldn’t help him, so I took him to the hospital and I tried walking into a health pack, but that didn’t stop the look on his face, so I knew of only one other way to help him: complete the next objective in the mission (drive to Chumash).
So I drove him out there and actually went on with the mission, even though back then, there was no way to finish the mission (replay bug).
I remember being really creeped out by this and it taught me a valuable lesson, as this has never happened again and never will, because the hell if I want to go through it again…
