What mysteries involving videogames have you heard about or seen for yourself that have remained unsolved of things found through hacking a game or exploiting glitches leading to something interesting?

Found this website just now, has some pretty good stories:

The running man in Ocarina of Time. You can't just beat the guy for some reason. Maybe it would have been possible to do so in the expansion of Ocarina of Time for the 64DD.

Yeah he is supposedly unbeatable, despite peoples claims they have beaten him!

Did you know theres a South Park episode hidden in the PlayStation version of Tiger Woods '99?

In 1995, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were paid $2,000 to make an animated short for a Fox network executive. The film, dubbed "The Spirit of Christmas,"
featured the then-unknown quartet of foul-mouthed tots from South Park and quickly spread like wildfire online.

An unknown developer at EA Sports was one of the many to download and watch it -- which wouldn't have been a big deal, except when the publisher mastered the game disc for the PlayStation version of Tiger Woods '99, it accidentally copied that folder off of the server as well. That meant the 5-minute short shipped with the game.

You had to put the game disc into a PC and dig around a bit to find it, but it was there - and ultimately EA had to recall the game due to the inclusion of the profane cartoon.

Yes, I was aware of the Czar Dragon. It's really weird that he was cut at the very last minute, since he was programmed into the game. His lines were translated for crying out loud.

I didn't know about a South Park episode being in Tiger Woods 99, though. Good stuff!

Here's the one that always puzzled me after playing Banjo KAzooie back in the day.

Quote:
Rare also planned to include an additional game mode as well as more worlds to the game's current content, but time constraints dictated otherwise.[12] In addition, a feature called "Stop 'N' Swop", which would apparently have allowed data to be transferred between both Banjo-Kazooie and its then-future sequel Banjo-Tooie, remains incomplete in the original version of the game.[12] It was later revealed that one of the reasons the feature was never fully implemented was due to technical difficulties in the Nintendo 64 hardware.[15]

It seems there are a few mysteries regarding that game!


The first is the unlockable treasure chest in the bedroom of Mad Monster Mansion. Though there was an egg in the wine cellar and one in the bathroom, nothing ever came of this chest. Why do game developers put treasure chests in games that you can't open? Don't they know it will drive us nuts?


You'll likely recognize this scene from B-K's infamous "Game Over" sequence. Near the end of the game, you'll be able to walk into this room and see the machinery for yourself. You will also notice the locked doors with the grublin-head doorknockers on them that can never be opened. Nintendo Power's official strategy guide for this game included a screenshot of this room where the telepod machinery was gone and one of the doors was clearly standing open.

Yeah, N64 games had a lot of unsolved mysteries.

Mario 64 was full of them. The oft-rumored "Luigi is real in 2401", for example.

Probably the greatest mystery...Polybius:



The controversial history of Polybius is somewhat muddled, but what we do know is the Tempest-style shoot 'em up game was introduced around Portland, Oregon in 1981. Incredibly long lines around the arcade machines spurned rumors of complete addiction and visits from shady men in black. The players were said to suffer severe mental withdrawl, amnesia, insomnia, nightmares and bad gas. Insidiously, it was the Federal government who was said to have been testing on our young socially awkward population. No proof of any black-ops plot was uncovered. But the truth is out there

World of Warcraft: Hidden Dungeons, Possesed Children

Take, for example, the unused dungeon just outside a game area called Karazhan (sometimes referred to by players to as "Lower Karazhan"). It's a dungeon that was apparently scrapped partway through development, and in front of the entrance is an impassable gate. But just as with that old abandoned mine outside of town, you can sneak in (in this case, you can get around the gate by way of various glitches). And inside, you find this:



Among the typical WoW dungeon maze of tunnels, you find The Upside-Down Sinners. It's exactly what it sounds like: an underwater room chock full of handless, eyeless people, chained upside-down and left to drown.

Popular speculation is that Blizzard backed down from using the dungeon because they were afraid that it might bump the game's rating to M, but there's no real way to know.

---

But that's not all the creepiness WoW has to offer. The first town you encounter after the human starting area is a place called Goldshire, and it has its own dark secret.

A house on the edge of Crystal Lake, which is just east of town, is normally empty. At 7 a.m. on the game's server clock, however, you can sometimes catch six little kids in the room, standing in a strange formation.



You think that's creepy? They used to stand in a pentagram.

Some players have heard strange noises, like banshee screams or the voice of C'Thun, a former high-end boss ripped straight out of the Cthulhu Mythos, saying, "You will die." You can even follow them from Stormwind City, the human capital, all the way to the house, and they never break their cute little pentagram formation the whole way.

So Mario games are full of creepy stuff, apparently. Knowing that, we're not so shocked to find out that Mario fans are always looking for hidden conspiracies in those games. We are, however, a little disturbed by what they've actually found.

Take Luigi's Mansion for GameCube, which is about Mario's taller, greener brother hunting ghosts in an old mansion. According to an urban legend that keeps popping up in the always-reliable gaming message boards, if you go to a certain room, stand in a specific spot and wait for lightning to strike, you can see what looks like Luigi's shadow hanging from the ceiling. As if he had just committed suicide.
