Useless video game knowledge shared on Twitter, revealing gender and dinosaur details.
The world of video games is filled with interesting and often obscure facts that many fans may not know. Super Pod Saga, a small gaming podcast, recently asked people on Twitter to share the most useless piece of video game knowledge they know. They received a massive response of over ten thousand replies, showcasing the breadth of knowledge the gaming community has.
One example of a response was about the action-adventure series Devil May Cry. It revealed that Dante and Vergil have a healing factor that prevents them from having any wounds or scars, indicating that they are likely uncircumcised. This fun fact was something that many fans may not have known and was certainly an interesting piece of knowledge.
Another response was about the game Xenoblade 3, which features at least five genders. This is an important piece of knowledge regarding the representation of gender in video games, and while it may be considered useless by some, it is an important part of the gaming experience.
Kotaku staff members also shared some of their own niche video game knowledge. For example, the fire-breathing dinosaur from Super Mario World is named after the singer from Nine Inch Nails and Flood creatures in Halo 2 can be seen driving around in vehicles. Additionally, the music in the NES version of Back to the Future is a sped-up version of the hit song “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and the News.
These fun facts about video games demonstrate the vast amount of knowledge that the gaming community has. Whether it’s about the representation of gender in video games or the music from an old NES game, there is always something new to learn. The responses to Super Pod Saga’s tweet show just how much the gaming community loves to share their knowledge and have fun with it.
