The top 10 secrets of console gaming in a 5 minute video? Here's how they did it: one killer secret per top old-school franchise, then further narrowed down by it's creative influence for games to come. There's a couple of my favorites that didn't make the cut, like the Dracula's Tower leap of faith in Castlevania and the negative tax bug in SimCity that gives you a million dollars ... but as Craig says, "chances are, you're going to hate the list -- which is why it's good". I'll spoil something for you though ... the Konami Code is not number one! Watch and see if you agree with the verdict.
