    Scariest Game You Won't Play | Petscop ►
    Duck Season is a game that seemed pretty straight forward, but it went from zero to DARK really fast. We are left wondering so many things after completing the game. How does this dog come out of the cartridge? Why is he preying on children? And most importantly... Who is beneath the mask? Well Loyal Theorists, I think I found the answer. Join me for a creepy trip through VR land as we uncover the shocking truth of the "Duck Hunt" universe!

    I love how MattPat mentions the Fiesta ending first as if 90% of us didn’t start the game off off by shooting the dog.
    He’s so innocent 😇

    What if Matt Pad is just building up a HUGE theory about his channel? And he is expecting us to solve it like a true theorist fan? Now THAT would be AMAZING

    Developers: "We need another lighting effect for the secret ending... Let's just re-use the one from the dead ending to save space, time and resources"
    Matpat: "And this is how he got trapped into the cartridge!"

    5:06 ;
    Dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) are domesticated mammals, not natural wild animals. They were originally bred from wolves. ... They are sometimes called "canines" from the Latin word for dog - canis. Sometimes people also use "dog" to describe other canids, such as wolves. A baby dog is called a pup or puppy.
