You can walk while looking up or looking down in Yoshi's Story.

Read about that, and looking at the game, i don't understand how I never realized that. Sure, i was a kid and didn't look deeper into stuff... but it was pretty obvious.

Yep, the stage play thing. That caught me by surprise.

I didn't know about SMB 2's origins until years later . . . I think it wasn't until the Lost Levels got localized.

I didn't know you could steal in Link's Awakening until I finally got away with it. And the consequences are hilarious!

When I first got Star Fox 64, I didn't realize there was a "real" ending until my friends told me what to do on the train stage.

I also didn't realize Kirby was a mass murdering psychopath. That realization came with time.

You mean I've been playing star fox wrong all these years?

Quite a few things, like the SMB3 stage play mentioned.

However, the first one to come to mind was that I didn't know about the different versions of Ocarina of Time until about a couple years ago or so before OoT 3D came out. I always wondered why Ganon's blood was green in Master Quest for GCN when it was red in my N64 version, and I never noticed the change in the Fire Temple music or the Gerudo symbol until then.

I never got enough time with it as a kid to really pay attention. I had also moved on to Genesis by that point.

Downloading it from the Wii VC a few years ago and playing through it, I realized "Hey...it's like a shabby play."

Then going on the Internet and reading other people's realizations was a joy to behold.
