Is Sheng Long the greatest April Fool's joke/hoax in gaming?

If not, what is it, in your opinion?




No matter what may happen to me, just remember Lzzy Hale gave me the bedroom eyes...

Plenty to pick from here. Of course, anything Mortal Kombat related, like Ermac, I just ate up when I was younger.

I know Sonic eventually made his way into the franchise, but did Tails ever do the same? Ultimate has so many characters that I wouldn't be surprised.

LOL, this shit was just too much. In retrospect it seems silly anyone would fall for it, but at the time it was pretty wild.

You have to remember this was 92'. Altering screenshots was a foreign concept to most people reading. Also, most readers were kids and teens.

Only as a regular trophy, sticker, spirit, Mii costume, and background character depending on the game.

FYI I had this issue. Loved egm so much. I originally thought that the dbz anime was based on the games, because egm's import coverage of the super butoden series is how I found out about the franchise.

I still remember seeing first form freiza in the anime and thinking " why does he look so different from the game?"

I would have to say Nimbus Terrafaux from the Genesis version of MK1 is the most memorable to me. Believe EGM was responsible for that gem too.

This was always my favorite. Game Infarcer is kind of a spiritual successor to it and I think is still running.

GTA games had so much to do in them that they were a natural haven for hoaxes. Every game from Vice City and on came with online hoaxes claiming that the previous game maps were still in the latest game and that you could fly to them if you flew long enough over the water.

Of course, all these years later and somebody literally did make a mod that connects Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas together in one big world.

I remember Vice City had a "Christmas Tree" room hoax based off the "Easter Egg" room.


Wonder if the first person to find the easter egg room found it naturally or if it was leaked by a game dev.

The greatest hoax has got to be summed up in three words:

Nude. Lara. Croft.

Sheng Long was a mistranslation that took on a life of its own. EVERYBODY has heard of at least one code, trick, or exploit to remove at least the green tank top from the pyrimidic pixelated jubblies of the globetrotting, akimbo gunning, female raider of tombs. None of them were ever real. Nobody would dignify these with any serious magazine coverage. But they still seemed to perpetuate. And the internet as we would come to know it only made it worse.
