Mainstream Game Coverage Lacking

So I'm checking the internets for videogame news and I run across an article from Excite News.

Basically, it's a pretty standard take on how advertisers are inserting more clever ads in videogames... not really news, but hey, whatever.  But then I read the following awesomely clueless paragraph:

"In many games, players who enter the top-secret "cheat code" could become invisible, get unlimited ammunition or play in an all-powerful God mode. Or they'd play for hours until discovering brightly decorated circles or balls - known as Easter eggs - that unlocked bonus points, monster-slaying swords, extra lives or infinite health."

Good job, Excite News! I'm off to hunt for Easter Eggs!
