kezins.com has a cool story on Urban Legends in Video Games. My Favorite has to be Lara Croft in the nude. That Government one scared me a bit...
The Myth that is Alan Wake..... I seriously don`t even think it exists.
It`s the 50ft shark of gaming.
It may not exist...but its still my most anticipated game. I might even have to become a developer to make it come out. :)
IMO, that was the best one. http://upload.wikimedia.org... Lol, it was so good.
Duke Nukem Forever
What was the Urban Legend there?
The game's release date.
i heard the government, put chips into some aircraft fighting games, and people with really high scores would be recruited to fly unmaned planes..dunno might have some truth to it
Like The Last Starfighter?
Ace Combat? lol
yea i remember trying to jump over that pole! i really believed it could be done! but my buddy knew a buddy that knew somebodies brother who actually did it. it happened to be on a stormy night. scary stuff right there
yeah my friends and I wasted an entire day trying to jump over the pole.
the guy who did that was my brother, lol. Are you Kevin Diley?
You can't jump over the pole on SMB, I tried it. If you somehow happen to get above it it'll bring your ass right down to the pole and you'll slide down. My friend once conned me into doing a bunch of crazy stuff in Rival Schools to unlock the edit mode that was removed from the US version but is still listed on the back of the case. I wanted to kick his ass when I realized he was lying.
A modded version of SMB allows you to jump over the pole, the one with the uber jump . I've seen it done on one of the versions of SMB in FamiCom.
I had the game shark and it let you jump over...and if you kept moving to the right, you couldn't get back and the timer would just run out
What's all this about Polybius? Sounds interesting to say the least.
I have to admit, the Polybius arcade is what sucked me into this. I don't know anyone who has a ROM or has seen anything but the screenshot posted. Guys in black suits near arcades always scare me. I picture the Agent from "The Matrix". Can anyone from Oregon update us on this? Also isn't that arcade cabinet just scary looking??? I hope my laptop is not seized by the gob'ment.
Polybius is an exageration. It was an arcade game that had to many flashes in its gameplay. It caused seizures (to people who already had seizures) and this is where the warning has come from. If you read the back of any game it has a warning about seizures. The men in black thing... fake
shun the non believer XD
We spent hours on a game called 'skool daze' trying to see if we could get our schoolboy character to actually sleep with the girl in the school (you could kiss her). That's what everyone was telling us was possible. And my mate reckoned he'd hacked teletext using the rmote control ... ahhh to be young and daft :)
My brother jumped over the flagpole in super mario. That was on an original NES. Remember it so well.. You could just run and run for eternity.. So I know it is possible without modding.
