“Final Fantasy is neither final nor a fantasy. Discuss.” ~ Linda Richman
How many lies have video games told us over the years? There’s so many that I’m not even sure I can think of them all in order to mention them here. A promise of cake in Portal is an obvious one. Instantaneous evolution in the Pokémon franchise is another. How about mushrooms will make you grow bigger? The only mushrooms I can think about with “special powers” might make you think you’re growing big, but they also might make you think you can see sound or that your hand is sentient entity onto itself. All lies.
I know I’ve only scratched the surface of video game falsehoods. So if you can think of any others I have missed, please don’t hesitate to share them below.
