10 Gaming Myths That Fooled You As A Kid

Killing The Duck Hunt Dog

Duck Hunt is another classic Nintendo title that captivated a generation. By using an external light gun, players would shoot at birds that were flushed out of the bushes by a hunting dog. The levels got progressively harder as the game went on, and if you failed, the dog would tease you. At some point, it was believed that you could shoot the poor dog. This turned out to be a big fat lie.

Naked Lara Croft

Tomb Raider was definitely a product of its time. It’s a great series and has served as inspiration for many other games, but it has shown its age due to its portrayal of female characters. The recent reboot of the series has partially cleaned up its act, thankfully. Similar to Metroid, it was rumored that you could view a naked model of the lead character. Keep dreaming kids.
