DidYouKnowGaming: For When You Need More Gaming Trivia!

Frightening!

Did you know that the Capcom logo uses the same typeface as Jeopardy! answers? What about the fact that pirated PC copies of Alan Wake display the titular haunted novelist with an eyepatch? I did not. As a fan of this kind of trivial information, hearing about DidYouKnowGaming was a pleasant surprise!

It’s weird that, having grown up reading trivia about movies and TV shows, there’s tons of inside jokes, references, and bizarre origin stories to fill a site like this. Each factoid, presented in a shareable card, is concise and interesting. Users submit tips and, if proven false, are redacted with a clever graphic. The site covers gaming from virtually every era and from Eastern and Western developers alike, so it’s great to see Final Fantasy factoids alongside Skyrim. If you seriously need to kill a few hours, because the internet is completely lacking any reason to do so, be sure to check them out.
