For years, I never knew that the PlayStation was a 32-bit system. I thought it was 64-bit.

It took me years to figure out that in Melee you could play with teams hahaha. I stumbled upon it by accident.
Oh and changing the color of your bowling ball in Wii Sports (Also by Accident)

A friend of mine showed me a little secret about the original Pokemon Red, in the intro sequence where a Gengar and a Nidorino fight.

Let it run once and notice the Nidorino's mouth is not visible in the last frame of the sequence.
Now, reset and pay attention at the intro:
If you press A on the exact moment the Gengar hits the Nidorino, the Gengar will be pushed back a little bit more, evidenced by the fact Nidorino's mouth is now visible in the last frame of the sequence. Were you to press A in any other moment of the sequence, it will cut the scene into the Title Screen.

In all my years, I certainly never knew it. Easter egg or not, I can't find info about it anywhere. Can anyone check it, I was quite startled by it, while my friend said he found it playing short after the game came out.

EDIT: We have experimented with it and apparently while Gengar dashes to actually hit the Nidorino, if you press A you can stop it's dash, making it look like Nidorino is jumping further. I can post pics but I don't know the guidelines.

on the box and promotional art for Super Mario Galaxy, shiny sparks on certain letters spell out sUpeR MaRio GalAxY, or 'U R MR. GAY'.

Bizarre.... but which letters had sparks on them got changed for SMG 2, heh heh

I always looked at that like a coincidence. Nintendo wouldn't do that. If they did it on purpose however...They are the ultimate troll.

Look at Super Mario Galaxy's 2 box. Now let's take the letters out this time: U R M I A Y. Now let's turn this sequence around: Y A I M R U. Now let's use our imagination to spell out a phrase: YA I M, R U (Ya, I am, are you?)? :3

I think developers get bored some time and just want to do something fun to see if anyone would notice

There is Cheese in Luigi's Mansion?!

I didn't know that until 3 years ago and I refused to believe it until I replayed the game last year.

There was a certain chest in Twilight Princess that I didn't know was there for a while. Even worse, it was at the most simple temple: the first one.

I didn't know that in Super Mario 3 the hammers you throw when wearing a Hammer Bros. suit can kill Boos. Found it out on accident like a year ago.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Not only that, but she's changed her name, too...stealing the moniker of a fellow Mario enemy. She was originally called "Ostro".

Actually that was a mistake. Birdo and Ostro's names were both switched in the western version.
