10 More Video Game Easter Eggs Nobody Understands

9. The Guy & The Goat - Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

When people say that Tony Hawk is the GOAT, this isn't quite what they meant.

From Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 through to Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, you can find goats inexplicably hidden around the map.

That's weird, but it gets weirder when the vast majority of the time, said goats are accompanied by a man standing quite suspiciously by them - often behind them, even.

That the man and the goat are typically in a secluded area only makes it that much more suspect, and while we can't say for sure that there's something untoward going on here, that certainly seems to be the game's implication.

In one instance, you'll find a guy dancing in front of a seated goat in his apartment, and in another, the offending man staring at the goat's rear is actually a cop.

It's certainly consistent with the series' rather juvenile sense of humour per its primarily teenage target audience, but one still has to ask - why?
