Easter Eggs Wiki

Berzerk was an arcade game where players ran through a series of mazes while destroying robots, avoiding and deadly maze walls, as well as the indestructible Evil Otto, who would come out if the player took too long to get out of a level.

Berzerk became notorious for the deaths of two teenagers who both died shortly of a heart attack after getting a high score in the arcade version: 19-year-old Jeff Dailey in January 1981 and 18-year-old Peter Burkowski in October of the same year.
