For ages I didn't realize you could fly with the raccoon tail in Super Mario 3. As I didn't bother reading the manual (which was rare back then, as I always read them) I would fill up my P bar, and continue to jump around to unsuccsessfully reach high up places. I lt wasn't till I went round a mates place about 6 months or so later (yes I know it's not years) that I found out.

No wonder I couldn't finish it.

I didn't know that the pipes in the original Super Mario Brothers were "flower pots." According to the manual, which I saw about 10 years ago, that's what they are

In DKC2, I didn't notice the SNES controller in the background of the final boss, nor the fact that all the math equations in the background of Wrinkly's are wrong, until today.

The best strategy in the game: go up stairs and pause balls.

DirectX Box.

Yeah, I didn't know that either.

The first time I played a Zelda game, I had no Idea what it was, and I named the file after myself, Ben. I was amazed when I started playing the game to find out that the main character also had the name Ben. I felt special.
...Then, 5 years later, I found out that the name you put on the file is the name that everyone calls you in-game. I felt less special.

Just let it happen.

There was a Halo 2 DS prototype? Come on Microsoft, give up on gaming on the Windows Phone! Halo 2 3DS! Yeah!

That the game my dad got from his work, ClayFighter 63 1/3 Sculptors Cut, would be worth something if I hadn't opened the box.
P.S. Dad was a BlockBuster manager and had given it to me instead of letting other people rent it.

Crocomire was designed to play a part in Metroid Prime 3 : Corruption. That's the 2nd time he didn't make it into a recent Metroid title (the other being Zero Mission)

Just today, I learned that the concept of microgames like in Warioware is not original. There was a Japanese, Mario Paint-like game released in 2000 named Mario Artist: Polygon Studio that gave you the ability to make polygonal art, but it also allowed you to play your creations in a very short microgame.

Take a look at these comparisons.

That Zelda Easter Egg is quite painful to watch.

I actually discovered that egg by pure accident. Literally every time I played the game when I was younger I would go to that room. I had no idea it was supposed to be secret.
