6 Insane Video Game Fan Theories (That Make Total Sense)

Cohesive storytelling is a new thing in video games. The standard for nearly 30 years was to just fill the screen with whatever nonsensical lunacy lured the most quarters or sold the most copies, and even today it's hard for games to break away from that formula. So fans fill in the narrative blanks with their own theories, adding layers of meaning and symbolism the creators almost certainly didn't intend.

But occasionally, these crazy fan theories make a sobering amount of sense, sometimes more so than the actual games they're derived from. (Animal Crossing, Culture, Donkey Kong , Mario, Mass Effect 3, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask)
