    Favorite Hoaxes/Urban Legends in Video Games?

    Title says it all.

    Personally, Luigi in Super Mario 64 is my favorite. I remember back in the day, there was a fake code that said if you ground pounded the sun-shaped carpet in the first room of Peach's Castle, you'd unlock Luigi. I ground pounded that carpet all 64 times, and no Luigi. Needless to say, I was annoyed.

    Sonic and Toad unlockable in Melee if you killed 20 things in the very hard thingy where you had to get all the wire fighters out of the stage but they were really strong and you were a glass box.

    Less of an urban legend and more of a funny belief I held as a kid. I thought that if I somehow was able to get passed invisible walls and barriers in a game world I would be able to explore the out of bounds area, but that the game world itself would continue and be fully generated.

    ...Maybe that's way I love open world games since it makes my childhood fantasies a reality.

    Speaking of this topic, did you guys see they caught one of the guys involved in the Nigerian Prince scam, and it was some 67 year old dude from New Orleans, or something?

    That Laura Croft was attractive in PS1 days.
    Also that Ocarina of Time is better than Link to the Past.

    I will always remember the rumors of people spotting Bigfoot in GTA San Andreas. He was rumored to be wandering around the "Back O' Beyond" area in the game when it was storming. Some other myths in that game included ghost cars, UFOs, Leatherface, etc.

    Nintendo once claimed Switch would have a lot of new and interesting games, which is a hoax.

    New games please!

    Do you work for CNN? Are you Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitzer? Is Don Lemon really that stupid or is it an act?

    My neighbor Scott has a dog he named Cooper.

    I call it Anderson Pooper.

    Scott isn’t amused for some reason.
