Topical Tuesday: When Lies Become Better Than Reality


We’ve all heard rumors. Unfortunately, most of the time the truth ends up being nowhere near as great as the rumor itself. That normally sparks our imagination to wonder what the world would be like if these rumors were true. Now is your chance to share that with the community.

Welcome back to Topical Tuesday! Every week we ask the community a question related to our weekly magazine topic. Our goal is to begin an intelligent discussion based on a topic that’s uniquely relevant to us as gamers and nerds, and the industry we love. Opinions are welcome, but please justify your claim with support – such as quoting information from one of our featured articles – even if that requires a little research before posting. Please use examples to back up your opinion.

This week, C J Davies has an excellent article titled “Videogame Myths Debunked”, which goes through why 10 gaming myths are false. Similarly, we’ve all heard myths and rumors outside of the gaming industry that are better than the truth. This brings us to today’s Topical Tuesday discussion.

What rumor have you heard, in any industry, that ended up being completely false but would have been awesome if it was true? How could the rumor have been made even more awesome?

Are you excited by Bruce Willis being cast as Master Chief in the new Halo movie? Or by Blizzard’s new console MMO World of Starcraft? Or maybe you’re more interested in seeing the Lando Calrissian spin-off Blackstar Warrior finally be released.

Ladies and Gentlemen, to your keyboard and discuss!
