Everybody loves a good story, and a good story that totally happened to a cousin of your best friend is even better. The internet makes everyone our best friend's cousin, and video games, much like movies before them, give us a set of shared experiences and expectations to draw from and relate to. Haunted video game cartridges, long forgotten games with mysterious plots, children going mad, these are all things that somehow seem like they could have happened. Sometimes the lure is just allowing the line between fantasy and reality to blur for a little while. Sometimes it's nice to believe that somewhere out there is an incredibly rare treasure to be sought. Other times we just latch onto an idea that plays into our pre-conceived ideas about the way the world works. Whatever brings you into the world of conspiracy, these 8 theories are sure to get your brain juices moving.

This being a game we're talking about, of course it would be The Uncle Who Works For Nintendo.
4.5 million blocks and two years contributed to this Minecraft project, which is a top candidate for the most ambitious (and/or insane) fan projects in the game's history. It's called Titan City, and holy crap is that name appropriate.
