I think I might've killed myself if this were true.

You can buy the Oculus but you can't take away my Nintendo dammit!

EGM's April Fool's joke regarding Sheng Long is my personal favorite (yup, I fell for it too).




Here's a brief write up from the IGN article written in 2009.

Of all of EGM's April Fools jokes, no other has made a bigger impact or been as long lasting as the fabled Sheng Long. The year was 1992 and Street Fighter II was the game of the moment. Then along comes EGM, claiming that Ryu's secret master, Sheng Long, was supposedly unlockable – but only if you had true gaming grit. Supposedly, you had to work your way through all 11 characters without taking any damage and then face off against M. Bison nine times –each ending in a draw. Ho ho. Good luck with that. Years later, the gag returned again, just in time for Street Fighter III on PSX –and to this day, people still mention Sheng Long as amongst the best of the best April Fools gaming gags. For those still itching to play as the wizened master, look no further than Gouken in Street Fighter IV – inspired by this very gag.
