Pop Fiction

Believe it or not readers, but a while ago, the Internet didn't exist. (Bandit: Gasp!)

Which means that people couldn't share information as easily. People could get away with lies much easier. You could spread myths and rumors, and it could take years before anyone could find out the truth.

What exactly am I talking about ? Videogame myths.

Perhaps years back, you may have heard of this rumor as I have. It was a myth about the classic game, The Legend of Zelda : A Link to the Past. People talked about reading, or even seeing, a secret room in the game.
They called it the "Money room", since it was supposedly filled with blue rupees. Others also called it the "Chris Houlihan" room, once again, supposedly something they read in the room.

As a kid, hearing of such things would push an uninterested "huh . . ." out of me. But now, as an immature adult, I'm beyond interested in such things. I love videogame myths, easter eggs, and all that stuff.

Now, let me tell you about a certain series on the popular website, Gametrailers. If you look past all the blind fanboyism, and the numbers in the reviews, you'll see something they call "Pop-fiction".

They currently have 20 episodes, where they explore certain myths about games, such as the Chris Houlihan room myth.

It is by far, one of the best series I've ever watched on the Internet, and everyone should give it a watch.
