PopQuizzical Daily! for April 2, 2013:
In the simulation series Tropico, what’s the player character’s title?
Street Fighter II: The World Warrior.
This ‘cheat’ was for the arcade version of Street Fighter II, but wasn’t a cheat at all. It was an early April Fool’s joke by EGM magazine. Since then, April Fool’s jokes in the gaming industry have become more prevalent, with my favorite being a ginned up commercial by the guys who made Retro City Rampage and their new fake breakfast cereal. I put a link to the video below (you should watch it – it’s great!).
