TEN FICTIONARY VIDEO GAMES THAT PEOPLE STILL BELIEVE FOR TRUE

TEN FICTIONARY VIDEO GAMES THAT PEOPLE STILL BELIEVE FOR TRUE

Tech Highlights:

  • People will believe just about anything, however, there may be a psychological reason for that. And one of those well-documented reasons is the Mandela effect. The Mandela effect by definition is a group of people that believe false memories or current events, that have been altered either by interpretation or memory. However, they are believed as facts, and as deep as the Madela effect is, video games have not been spared, and some games exist only in the minds of others.

  • Myths, urban tales, and rumours abound in the gaming world. Gamers like discussing and debating many aspects of their favourite games. However, half-truths and obviously erroneous information are sometimes handed down as facts during those debates. And when that happens, rumours, urban legends, and myths will spread like wildfire, leading players to believe them. Worse, when it’s time for a pleasant argument, defending them.

Yoshi’s Dreamland is the perfect example of the Mandela effect, as the game simply does not exist. However, gamers will often refer to the title as a real game, but they are referencing something that is fictitious.

There are two games out there named Killswitch, the one that exists is a third-person shooter that came out for PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2003. The one that doesn’t exist ostensibly came out in 1989. The fake Killswitch is a creepy survival horror game, set in a lonely cave. There are two characters the player can choose from and it’s between a woman who is wounded and an invisible demon, that shoots fire from his mouth.

There is a logical reason Yoshi’s Dreamland is a thing in the gamer community and it’s because of a distortion of memory. Kirby’s Dreamland 2 and Yoshi’s Island came out the same exact year in 1995, and on top of that, both games are very similar in terms of gameplay and animations. And, it’s because of those similarities that they are often mixed up.
