You know those things in games that you just don't know if its true or not like Link really dying in Majora's Mask than going on an adventure to accept it? Well here you may post to your hearts content about the myths on your mind whether they be creepy, thought provoking, or straight out humorous. this goes for inside the game world or about some real life occurrences surrounding a game itself.

To get things started have you ever thought about the ghost of the first Luigi's Mansion game? I mean they at one time were alive so how did they die? Also if King Boo created that Mansion in that one night why do some of the descriptions make it seem like the ghosts have lived there for a long time? Not to mention that some descriptions even refer to certain members as family so are they all related or just a few. And finally why does professor E.gadd capture them all when, except for a few, most ghost are to busy doing something to attack Luigi unless provoked? post what you think to this or make up your own down below.

the movie texas chainsaw massacre was based off a true story and atari made a game based off the true to life movie thus making the first "reality" video game.
the movie and game were based off of my family members.
i got no royalties to either iteration.

@ogo79 Um I'm sorry to hear that? But anyway the first movie licensed game was Indiana Jones raiders of the lost ark in terms of movie licensed games but I couldn't find anything on the first video game based on a real life event so good speculation.

Before the Star Wars Arcade Game (The Vector one) ?

False. Unsourced statements from Wikipedia do not facts make.

There were quite a few movie-licensed games released in 1982 prior to Raiders (which released in the fall) including Alien, Fantastic Voyage, King Kong and Empire Strikes Back. Adventures of Tron released a year earlier (1981).

I believe the first movie-license video game was actually the arcade game Death Race, which came out in 1976.

@unrandomsam
The Star Wars vector-graphics game actually didn't come out until 1983.

Indeed. I don't know who put that bit of false information on there, but I removed it now. Many movie games came years before.

@the_shpydar yeah wiki is not my main source of info but it was one of the other sites I checked but I actually got the information from this site as well:

http://www.pop-gamer.com/2012/01/30-years-ago-the-first-movie...

and after looking around I could not find if Death Race was licensed movie based yes but is it licensed?

Yeah, the Pop Gamer article is wrong.

Death Race may actually not have been officially licensed (i don't think there's credible confirmation either way), so in that sense it may not qualify.

A bunch of other licensed Atari games came earlier in 1982. Raiders wasn't out until the end of the year, in November (just a few weeks before ET, actually). And i'm not sure, but the Tron arcade game also came out in 82, and i'm almost certain it was earlier in the year (during the summer i think, to coincide with the movie's release in July of that year).

I tried making a thread like this before, and I laugh at my attempt today.
I brought up the mythical unreleased Kid Icarus Uprising cards. They had no profound story towards them. They were just mysterious cards.
That post was made over a year ago. And luckily there's been some elaboration since them, in the form of a Youtube video.

No. I have no real myth, but have fun with something that was once a mystery.

Heh that was an interesting video I wondered what game informer was giving away the cards for.

But any why next myth is the hellvalleyskytree myth now as of now its now that they are part of the background but does anyone have some speculation as what they could be either in the mario universe (maybe they're souls trapped in that galaxy.) or the real world. (maybe they're just easter eggs from the developers.

@the_shpydar, have you checked out the YouTube video series The Video Game Years from Retroware TV?

It's a series that disects notable games (and gaming related events) year by year (starting with '77, I believe), and I think they noted a handheld LCD Star Trek game frome the late 70's as the first licensed game.

The series is really an interesting watch.

Yes, i have watched all the Video Game Years vids, and indeed they are awesome. I would reccomened them to anybody who has even a passing interest in the Golden Age and retro video games in general. I think they hold an extra level of awesome for me since i grew up in that era, so the nostalgia factor is always high :)

I believe the handheld Trek game might very well be considered the first licensed game, but as a general matter i tend to think of those old school electronic games as closer to electronic board games (like Simon and the like) and not in the category of "actual" video games. But that's primarily a personal view, perhaps.
