''LSD: Dream Emulator'' is a PS1-era game created by Creator/OsamuSato (who also made ''[[VideoGame/EasternMindTheLostSoulsOfTongNou Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong-Nou]]''), and only released in Japan. It's a CultClassic, especially among LetsPlay groups. There is no goal, no combat, nothing but walking around the completely random environments. The main appeal for players is its insanity one day, you might see a line of elephants walking into a pit, while other times you might encounter [[FanNickname the Grey Man]], the closest thing to a recurring villain. Imagine a randomized ''VideoGame/YumeNikki''.

** There's a theory that he is the result of a sleep disorder called hypnognia, where the sleeping mind automatically assumes that there is a dangerous entity/danger.
* LetsPlay: After Creator/{{Azuritereaction}} (often known for his ''RockBand'' videos) played this, it became quite popular to play it and film your reactions.
* MindScrew: Nobody (at least none in the English fan community) has figured out how the hell the game actually works. In a very kind gesture, every area in the game is connected in a concrete way and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGr9Ari_4Ok maps exist]], but the actual methods the game uses to randomly decide where you go, what happens, and what it looks like are unknown. It's strongly implied that there ''is'' some sort of system the game has, but...

** It seems that after you run into the Grey Man and the Dream Log gets erased, it also erases all progress in getting the creepy textures, events, and characters so you have to start over from the normal textures again. Which is fairly annoying if you're trying to see just how creepy and confusing the game can get.

Added DiffLines:

* EnvironmentalNarrativeGame: Perhaps a prototypical example of the genre. Although there isn't a concrete narrative, it features many of the traits commonly associated with the genre: minimalist game mechanics, a first-person perspective and an emphasis on exploration.

* EldritchAbomination: Possibly, the Grey Man. Who is he? How can he walk without moving his legs? Why does he look like he doesn't fit in that coat at all? Why doesn't he have a face, in a game where even the walls sometimes have faces? What is someone in a trenchcoat and fedora [[VileVillainSaccharineShow doing]] in [[SugarBowl Happy Land]]? Why does he ''appear there more than anyone else?!''
** There's a theory that he is the result of a sleep disorder called hypnognia, where the sleeping mind automatically assumes that there is a dangerous entity/danger.

What is someone in a trenchcoat and fedora [[VileVillainSaccharineShow doing]] in [[SugarBowl Happy Land]]? Why does he ''appear there more than anyone else?!'' What's particularly notable about him is his recurring and antagonistic nature, which is mostly unique in this game.
