    Ok every once in a while we'll come accross a game that looks simple but then you see somthing that not quite right. things that make you wonder in confusion.

    here are some expamles.

    In Burger Time for Famicom(NES) There is this Little round object in the top let hand corner of the screen . What does it do? Why is it there? It's there but you cant get to it. there's not even a jump control in the game to reach it.

    Also in Waverace 64 when you start a race you see this thing by the number you must quallify in to reach the next race it looks like a Z but It looks like a 2 as well. so why are there telling you to finish in 24th place whe there are only 4 waterbikes in the race?

    now does anyone else have any Confusments in Video games?

      How about confusing/unconvincing storylines. I can remember this happening with the games Silent Hill 2, Max Payne 2, and more recently Indigo Prophecy. I want to believe the story the game is feeding me, but if it starts to lose sense and leave loose ends, I get annoyed.

      I also hate it when characters act in ways that don't make sense logically. I suppose it shatters my suspension of disbelief.

          In MegaMan X2 there's a gap in your special weapons. I went crazy trying to find the secret weapon that would fill it. And even when you do get the dragon punch, it doesn't have an energy bar and that gap is still there!

            Ahem. The real question is why is the series called, "Legend of Zelda" when the only common theme is a hero named Link?

                My theory is that the Zelda series is kind of a remake of the same story over and over. They are all the same story but retold in a different way each time. That's the only way it really makes sense. Link's Awakening can kind of fit in with more than one storyline though, since it is a story of him being on that island.

                  another one that I found was in Mario paint whenever you save somthing , It allwys stops at 12 for 30 freakin minutes. Like why couldn't stop at 3 for 2 minutes or 50 fo 30seconds. just a lil nit pick

                      The first time you use the Top Spin weapon aquired from the Top Man in Mega Man 3. Actually I still don't quite get it...

                      Also getting the Cloak of Darkness in Wizards & Warriors confuses me. It makes the hero invisible. However he is only invisible to the PLAYER and not the ENEMIES as they will attack you as much and as hard as before.

                        Yes, it's a glitch. "minus world" isn't even an appropiate name for it. That's not a minus sign, it's just the dash that's always inbetween the level's numbers. It's just that the left number is missing.

                          Go to pretty much any Zelda fansite and download The Book of Mudora. It tells the entire story of Zelda. It pretty much shows how the games link to eachother.

                          Frankly, the only game that really confused me and I evenually gave up on was The Lost Vikings 2.

                            How bout on the first Metal Gear game, you had a pack of cigarettes to start the game with but you couldn't smoke em. (Not that I condone or support smoking), but that always bothered me.
                            The customer is always right.... except when they are wrong.

                              you used the cigarette smoke to detect invisable tripwire beams.

                                I recall that was in Metal Gear Solid.

                                In the first Metal Gear you were able to get some more time to the countdown in the end of the game by using the cigarettes.

                                  In Golgo 13 you come across a pack of cigarettes. If you choose to smoke them, then your energy gets replenished. However after a few minutes you start to notice that your energy is slowly decreasing on its own. WTF? Who would put that in a video game?

                                    huh? there isn't a gap between the weapons in x2, at least not the size of a weapon opening
                                    there's only a small space between the Speed Burner and the Giga Crush to indicate the difference between the Maverick weapons and the Armor weapons

                                        !!!!QUESTION ANSWERED!!!!!!

                                        That marker in the game is NOT a 2 or Z But a Greater than Sign >with an underscore making it confusing at first. A friend pointed this out to me and Now I feel like an Idiot for not knowing that untill now . However, there is still more confusments out there.

                                        In Double Dragoon 2 for Famicom(NES) after beating the Lyon Bros before the Helicopter Level you see the Word G . R . A . S . P . .....wait.
                                        that wouldn't mean "Get Ready As Soon Possible" now would it?!

                                          He really liked his frog. But the frog actually dug up the ground, making Jason fall in. Still, I would probably react like I thought Jason did and jump in the hole after the frog.
