This year’s best April Fools’ Day gaming gags: Bears, bugs, and 97,000 floppy disks

Over the years I’ve devolved from a fun-loving scamp into a crusty curmudgeon—practically a coot at this stage—when it comes to April Fools’ Day on the internet. Most April Fools’ jokes are… they’re lies, right? It’s just lying. We already get plenty of disinformation the other 364 days of the year, so a day dedicated to even more online BS feels pretty unnecessary.

But when it comes to gaming’s April Fools’ Day pranks, there’s a lot more creativity than the usual pointless fakeouts. Sometimes the jokes really are funny (or at least cute) and often an impressive amount work has gone into them. Plus, some of the gaming pranks are real modes you can play, and over the years a few jokes have become actual games (like Conan Chop Chop) because fans liked the idea so much.
