The game itself provides inaccurate, false, or even contradictory information in areas where it's not supposed to give such under any circumstances.
Name variations: game lies, false information
The first video game about Inaccurate information was released on August 28, 1987.
The reasons for this to exist are possibly several:
* The game creator intentionally made it so, either purposefully writing inaccurate information or made the game provide inaccurate information when such is not expected.
* That part of the game was not updated to match later refactorings or other changes (and was never patched).
