Ooo. Halloween is coming. Rumors, horror stories, and urban legends zip around at an elevated volume around this time of year. Who can resist a good ghost story? Ah, but did you know that video games are also the catalyst for made-up stories about deaths, sickness and scandal? Read my write-up about Lavender Town Syndrome, an affliction that is rumored to cause young Japanese Pokemon fans to sicken and die. It's not true, of course--or is it??
...No, it's really not. But it's fun to wonder at this time of year, isn't it?
