11 Biggest Video Game Industry Lies You Still Believe
Thought Mario 64 was the first 3D platformer? Think again.
When you were a kid, did you have a friend who convinced you of some thing or feature existing or surrounding video games, but in order to get or see it you'd have to go on a wild goose chase? If the answer is no, you were that friend. There was nothing more exhilarating as a 90s kid than pursuing a secret item, character or story no other kids had any idea existed. Remember, this was in the days before the internet, so everyone believed anything remotely possible because they had no way to check otherwise. Imagine the thrill if you got it right - you'd be able to endlessly brag in the school playground and canteen about your successes, teasing your classmates about how you know something they didn't - it all created this beautiful culture where we'd eat up every little clue, puzzle and hint with no questions asked. But the sad truth is that pretty much all of these legends have been proven false over time - the hours you've pumped into certain games or hearsay were (ultimately fun) wastes of time, but now you're an adult it's time to look back, shake your head in embarrassment and marvel at the biggest myths or false secrets you once chose to believe.
