Last year over 800 copies of ET for the original Atari system were unburied in a dessert in New Mexico. The discovery confirmed years of rumors and speculation that the company dumped the game, widely believed to be one of the worst in the history of the medium in order to get rid of them. This though is just one of the medium's biggest mysteries, some with some pretty interesting evidence to them and some that are just plain bizarre. Here's a look at some of our favorite video game urban legends, and whether they may or may not be true.

I think it's worth to note that the The Legend of Zelda story is a famous Creepypasta. Based on that someone modded the original game and created a rom that behave like the one in the story.
So while the original story isn't true, the specific game has been made true.

And as far as I know in the instruction booklet of Super Mario Bros 3 the lore says the inhabitants of the kingdom have been transformed into blocks so when Mario destroys the blocks he technically kills people - but a theory says the whole game is framed into a theatre play (that's why a curtain is seen in the main menu) like Left 4 Dead is just a film according to the "credits" after completing a campaign.
