When my dad got the program Turbo Tax I asked my brother what it was and he said it is a video game where the government is trying to kill you for not paying your taxes and you have to escape! (I'm not sure if he actually believed this or was tricking me)

I used to believe that when we turned off the PS1 the characters of the video games would hang out at a bar, and talk about how bad or good we were at the game.

I used to believe if you spit on the bottom of a DVD and put in the computer's DVD drive, it would create special affects on the screen

I used to believe that if you played a pokemon game and traded pokemon with a link cable, there were real pokemon inside and if you broke the link cable they would jump out and you could become a real pokemon master.
Its a good thing i never tested this theory. my mum would have killed me.

A few years ago I loved to play the Sims, a computer game where you build houses and control the people who live in them. My dad would ask me about it once in a while and one day I told him you could buy a Sims game for the Sims to play on their little computer. Thats when my dad told me we were probably in a computer game being controlled by a world more complex than ours. I seriously considered this for a while.

When I was very small, I was convinced my father (who had no interest in video games whatsoever) had a hidden video gaming hobby, and would sit up at night playing them. I would hear suspiciously video game-like sounds coming from the television late at night, and try to imagine what kinds of strange, secret games he was playing.

When I was little I used to think there was a real person controlling the video games as I played them. I would sometimes even talk to them and tell them to go easy on me and stuff.

When I was little I had a nintendo, then a playstation. I dont know how I worked this out, but I used to hope/believe that if I completed a game a prize would come out, like a chocolate bar or a certificate. I was very sad when I completed the games and I got no reward

I thought that some game controllers had "EXPLODE" buttons and if you pressed it then the TV would explode. I don't know why, because I have never actually seen a "EXPLODE" button, maybe I thought something else said "EXPLODE" when it actually didn't

When I was very young, I came home to find my dad playing on the NES. I asked him what he was doing, and he told me that the "games" on the machine were actually training programs used to keep astronauts at NASA sharp. Later in life as I started playing video games myself, I learned that this was not true, but until very recently I was convinced that the game he was playing at the time - Tetris - was an astronaut training game.

when we were little, my sister and I would play on our parents' computer. The computer would crash a lot while running games, and an error message would appear with a bomb icon next to it. when my sister saw that she would run out of the room screaming, because she thought it meant the computer was about to explode.

When the game Descent first came out in 1995 my dad got the shareware version for us (I was 11 at the time) However I had never heard the word descent before so I thought it was called "The Cent" and was some game having to do with money! I was really confused when I looked for "The Cent" and couldn't find it on the hard drive anywhere!

I used to think all the data in a video-game cartridge was written on the little metal contacts at the end, where the slightest touch of a finger could erase it. That big hunk of plastic behind the contacts was only there to give you a good grip on the cartridge when you inserted or ejected it. Same with diskettes--I thought the data was stored on the shutter at the bottom.

what, you mean there's insides??

When my brothers and I first got a Nintendo, we used to take turns playing Mario Brothers. They would tell me that there were "goodies" in the pits so that I would jump down them and die. Oh look, my turn is over.

I played the Ocarina of Time far too much as a child and I believed that Hyrule was a real place in England or something. I thought there would be a castle, a princess, monsters, Ganon, and Link would have me help him if I went there.

When I was around the age of three, I used to constantly play the Star Wars Super Nintendo game. When I lost, Darth Vader would pop up on the screen and breath really loud. The first time I saw him I screamed and ran to my mom, asking her who he was. She said, "That's Darth Vader. When you lose the game, he comes out of the screen and sucks your breath out." From this day on, I always shut off the system before that scene comes up...

When I went to an arcade when I was about 2 or 3, I thought it was against the law for children to play the racing games where you have a steering wheel and pedal because they didn't have driving licenses.
