Video Game Myths
Game myths are a dime a dozen. Spread like wildfire thanks to the internet and its gaming forums, aided by Photoshop, and also “eyewitness accounts” that resemble UFO sightings, game myths range from standard and believable rumors to totally outrageous lies.
From an urban legend that suggests a game’s main character has been brainwashed by the big bad and that everything the player experiences is hallucinated, to a conspiracy theory that links Deus Ex to 9/11, game myths are as varied and fantastical as the games themselves—and they’re a lot less harmful than real-world urban legends that tell of boogiemen who hide in the back seat of your car when you get out to pump gas, waiting to stab you as soon as you drive off.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to collect ten very popular, and totally out-of-this-world game myths and urban legends. Read on to find out what they are.
