The Best Video Game April Fools’ Gags of 2024 – IGN Daily Fix

In today’s Daily Fix:
Another April 1st, another excuse to question everything you see and read on the internet. We picked just a few of our favorite (you can see the full list on our website), which include a sleeping tournament, a new physical edition of Cyberpunk 2077, and new Nintendo Switch. We also threw in some actual bizarro news for good measure, like the Tekken 8 director considering a Waffle House stage for the game, and a Sega/IHOP collab. Weird day.

It's a shame that Virtual Boy Pro turns out to be fake even though it would be really cool technology if it really existed and would make playing games even more fun.

In Sweden a hotell chain has a sleeping competition, who has the deepest REM sleep that is measured during the contest – the regulations and equipment aren't there yet to be a real sport though.
You can take sleeping pills, and you can't use your own bed.

The best April Fools gag you came up with was the one where you bashed StellarBlade devs for a generic character that’s a doll where they’ve never seen a woman. That was a classic April Fools joke right…right??? Oh you actually ment it…damn IGN, you guys have gone to an all time low
