If there's one thing game developers love to do, it's fill their games with amusing Easter Eggs for players to spend precious hours uncovering for themselves.
Whether it's a sly reference to another game or entire hidden stories hiding in plain sight, discovering these secrets has become the priority of whole communities of fans.
Though never intended to be especially easy to track down in the first place, sometimes developers go one step further by hiding these secrets in places that were never meant to be found.
However, that hasn't stopped curious players from peeking behind the scenes through clever manipulation of all of the 1s and 0s that make up the game code itself to see what secrets they can find.
Whether it be developer in-jokes hidden in data files or clever tricks used behind the scenes, some of these can only be found by hacking into the game itself.
Though some video game hackers are often associated with cheating and other unsavoury practices, some tech-savvy players out there have used their hacking powers for good to uncover some truly fascinating discoveries.
