* ''Cracked'' again. [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20657_the-6-most-bizarre-ways-to-lose-popular-video-games_p2.html this article]] complains about you dying in ''[[VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII Assassin's Creed III]]'' (which itself is not correct. You get desynchronised) if you don't skin the animals you kill, yet you get away with murdering political figures. In doing this they miss the whole point of the series, where the Animus machine you're in allows you to see an interactive recording of the past, so you can kill these political figures because your ancestor actually did it. So you get desynchronised from this recording because your ancestor skinned all the animals he killed, and by not doing it yourself, you're straying too far from the recording. Basically, Cracked seemed to not realise that ItMakesSenseInContext.

* ''VideoGame/LSDDreamEmulator'' is quite famous for being based on a dream journal? But on whose dreams was the game based? It must be Osamu Sato, the lead designer! Bonus points because Wikipedia rightly claims that the dream journal was kept by Hiroko Nishikawa, but the general public thinks Wikipedia is a bad source of information, and many gaming websites (who should know more about video games) claim it was kept by Sato.
* One review of ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' didn't like the player character's name, "Cloaca Mahoney"... a [[HelloInsertNameHere deliberate joke name]] used by Angie Gallant's "LetsPlay" walkthrough of the game. They'd have known if they'd played the game... or even read the LP, really.

** In the same article, they claim that in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD'', the "I'm outta here!" IdleAnimation "ends your game. As in you go back to the main menu and start from Level 1 with no Chaos Emeralds". While Chaos Emeralds are the staple BonusStageCollectables of [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog the series]], for this game they are substituted with Time Stones. Either way, unlike the first two cartridge-based games on the Genesis, all versions of ''Sonic CD'' have a save feature, so a game over won't send you back to the beginning of the game.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zJD9B0za9k this]] video, where WebVideo/JonTron references the creepypasta [[http://cdnl.complex.com/assets/CHANNEL_IMAGES/VIDEO_GAMES/2013/01/content/ghost2.png Pokémon Creepy Black]], he manages to give not one, but two wrong descriptions. More specifically, he said that it was "the one where Pokémon die instead of faint" and "the one with the version of Lavender Town that made those Japanese kids get mysteriously ill". Creepy Black is actually about having the ability to "Curse" your opponents (Pokémon ''and'' trainers) and make them mysteriously disappear. [[RuleOfFunny However, knowing Jon]], [[JustifiedTrope it was probably intentional.]]

** The word "Chao" from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series works this way too (pronounced "chow"), so it's annoying when people try to make it plural by adding an "s" on the end, making it a totally different word.
** Not to mention that the same game introduced a character named Chaos (pronounced "kay-os"), who is also directly related to the chao, which causes even more confusion!

** The word "Chao" from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series works this way too (pronounced "chow"), so it's "chow") is both singular ''and'' plural, and thus can describe any number of the creatures it refers to.

word. Especially since the same game that introduced chao also introduced a character named Chaos (pronounced "kay-os"), who is also directly related to the chao, which causes even more confusion!



** Dear game journalists: ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime''[=/=]''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' Link was the only Hero of Time. The other Links either have different titles or no in-game title at all. And he's not an elf, dammit.[[note]]He actually ''was'' an elf in the first game. It was later {{Retcon}}ned.[[/note]]

** In a blatant attempt to rank higher on search engines, every single article has 'Wii U', 'PS3', '360' and 'PC' in the URL, even if the game in question is for only one of those systems... or something else like the original Game Boy.

** An article on the ''Retro Gaming'' magazine about Pokémon's 20th anniversary had a box talking about the various spinoffs from the franchise, with a tidbit in each paragraph mentioning how many sequels that spinoff had. That's fine, until it mentions that ''Pokémon Dash'' got two sequels, which is wrong since there never was a single sequel to that game.

*** Italian translations of games always refer to Sonic as a porcupine, with "hedgehog" being used only in the cartoon shows.

* Another ''GTA'' example: the Quebec newspaper 24 Heures claims that ''GTA: Chinatown Wars'' is focused on "the Asian gang" (The Triad) from ''Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City''... Even if they meant ''[[GrandTheftAutoLibertyCityStories Liberty City Stories]]'', ''CW'' is part of the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'' era, which is as unrelated as possible (plotwise, anyways) to the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' era (which ''LCS'' is a part of; and for the record, the Triad did appear briefly in ''GTAIV''.). They also managed to switch around the text caption for the ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' screenshots on the same article as said goof.
