An article has recently been posted on the Rockstar Games Newswire, which mentions NASA comparing our world to that of a video game such as Grand Theft Auto IV.

"The natural world behaves exactly the same way as the environment of Grand Theft Auto IV. In the game, you can explore Liberty City seamlessly in phenomenal detail. I made a calculation of how big that city is, and it turns out it’s a million times larger than my PlayStation 3. You see exactly what you need to see of Liberty City when you need to see it, abbreviating the entire game universe into the console. The universe behaves in the exact same way. In quantum mechanics, particles do not have a definite state unless they’re being observed. Many theorists have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how you explain this. One explanation is that we’re living within a simulation, seeing what we need to see when we need to see it."  --NASA Scientist Rich Terrile

It is therefore theorised that a video game could hold the secrets to the universe. Is our world simply a simulation, being played out as a video game by some advanced beings; much like we play video games ourselves? It is definitely an interesting concept to think about.
