It's that time of year: the month-long buildup of hype for inevitable E3 letdown.
Why does this hype end in letdown?
Never is the time right for a gamer to use critical thinking skills than in the run-up to E3 where every troll with a fanbase they want to laugh at fires up MS Word or Photoshop and concocts a load of false hope.
HOW TO SPOT A FAKE:
1. If it is a list, who is the intended audience for it and what purpose does it serve to that audience. Lists with no context mean nothing to anybody.
2. Does that screenshot/logo/boxart use assets from a previous game in the series? If yes, then fake.
3. Does the photoshop work look like the product of a n00b rather than the work of a professional graphic designer?
4. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
