In the world of video games, rumors are a dime a dozen. Whether it be finding the legendary Mew in Pokemon Red and Blue beneath a truck or reviving Aerith from Sephiroth in Final Fantasy VIII, you can always count on there being a video game that can provide you with a plethora of potential ways to do, or find, something special. All you have to do is just do a series of absurd and/or convoluted tasks.
Rumors centered on video games aren't limited to within the games themselves however. The rumored landfill that contained the unsold cartridges for the Atari 2600’s ET was an immensely popular one for decades until they were found in September of 2014.
However, sometimes, there comes a rumor that stumps the general community due to the nature of it. It’s rumor that's circulated for decades, yet has no actual evidence for either side to really craft a sturdy enough argument—or explanation—with. In spite of this, there exists, and persists, a rumor that has attained the status as perhaps video gaming's urban myth.
