Pixelitis Picks: The most absurd videogame hoaxes

"he insanity of ours and other game websites’ April Fools’ Day pranks, fake news articles and whatnot is over and done with, but how about a reflective moment on videogame hoaxes?

Hoaxes are a part of our culture, and as humans we love getting our kicks out of creating a bit of tomfoolery, so it’s no surprise that there have been so many fake rumors and long-winding jokes when it comes to the secrets hidden within the games we play.

So from the ridiculousness of EGM’s “Sheng Long” Street Fighter II gag to unlocking Luigi in Super Mario 64, we’d like to share some of our picks for ‘most absurd videogame hoaxes.’"
