Videogame rumours that fooled you

Metal Gear: Venom Snake edition or whatever it was called on 4chan.

It sounded too good to be true, and I wanted it to be true. So obviously it was a lie.


Konami selling their Silent Hill and Metal Gear Solid IPs to Sony.

The metroid prime 4 logo reveal fooled most people. I knew before the logo even coalesced that it was bull.

Should be illegal to promote a console with software that doesnt exist.
I was like "I'll buy a Switch the moment that game is out". Still waiting to pull the trigger.

"Final Fantasy Versus XIII is being developed for the Playstation 3,"

You can revive a certain key character in FFVII.

The Triforce is an item in OoT.

I was a stupid kid.
I remember "playing" Progress Quest, a text based idle game, and there was that rumour that if you got past level whatever, the game would become graphical, with the most impressive graphics one would have ever seen.
No it doesn't.
... Unless I have not waited long enough?

Nimbus Terrafaux in MK1. Its funny how these fools jokes work. At school others were saying Nimbus was awesome etc. But how? He was a magazine mock up and that trick never worked lol. Fake news existed before internet.

Sheng Long is pretty funny because its obvious that Capcom based Gouki on this joke as he enters the ring against Bison in the exact same way. And that flaming dragon punch eventually went to Ken. But this trick was way too hard to even try anyway.

Akuma in RE2 was one I thought could be real, since RE2 also had Hunk and Tofu. But way too hard to even attempt. I never bothered with it.

Complex and nuanced morality system in games affecting the progress and outcome of the story.
Particularly in Bioshock, which it was the first time I saw it overhyped, and was completely disappointed by the really rough implementation.


Actually the demo was real, and ot was created internally by someone from Microsoft. Never released because no agreement with Nintendo probably

I miss Matt Casamasino. He was the only reviewer I cared for on IGN. Once he left, I stopped going there.


Bloodborne on PC. Cheers C CrazyLeaksOnATrain

But in game stuff... I used to believe Rayman could go transparent in the original game because I saw it on a magazine once and some kid said he knew how to do it.

Also there's the whole naked Lara stuff from PS1 Tomb Raider.
