The Funny, Occasionally Dirty, Hidden Messages in Your Favorite Games

It’s the 80's, or perhaps the 90's. You're a game programmer, working long, hard hours slaving over code for which your corporate overlords will likely not even give you the dignity of a credit. If they do, they’ll make you use some goofy-sounding nickname.

You’re stressed, you’re frustrated, you’ve barely seen your loved ones in weeks. You can’t vent to anyone about the coworkers that are pissing you off, your game is likely to be pirated upon release, but you’ve done amazing feats of code. What do you do to vent your frustrations while leaving your mark on your hard work?

You hide a personal message in the game's code. (Culture)
