10 Video Game Easter Eggs That SERIOUSLY Took The Piss
Well that's a fine congratulations.
There's a supreme sense of satisfaction whenever you uncover a video game secret. It can be as big as a vault containing all of the developers toys and items such as in the Fallout games, or it could be as tiny as a secret birthday message from a husband to his wife in Halo 3. Whatever the actual secret is, it feels like the curtain has been lifted slightly and you've joined a select group of winks and nods with the developers themselves.
Except hold on. What's this? Another secret? Well let's take a look what does it say?
It's telling me to insert my own fist into my....well I'm sure that was just a typo surely? Unfortunately such is the case in a suprising amount of video games, where even our most beleoved titles will mock us the player relentlessly for looking in places we shouldn't, doing things the devs don't want us to do, and sometimes for just playing the game!

And he definitely got our attention when playing WWF Attitude on the PS1 because the cheeky Tri-hard chose to have a customised message for the player which was....well less than flattering.
After sauntering to the ring looking like a tanned beachball in hot pants, Trips takes to the mic in order to dole out his at the time gimmick of "For the thousands in attendance, for the millions watching around the world" and then adding in a quip about the area or opponent he would be facing. However, instead of telling The Rock that he'd get his block knocked off, or informing The Undertaker he would be a legit dead man by the time he's through with him, Triple H calls US out by saying "and for the fatass at home playing this video game"
Ouch mate, we can't all look like a juiced up slab of ham. Be nice.
