* The Website/YouTube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl2RQzEY2XU&feature=related video]] "[[PlaystationVita PSVITA]] [[UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars VS]] [[Nintendo3DS 3DS]]" is either this trope or RefugeInAudacity. Basically it shows a side-by-side comparison of the handhelds' respective graphics done with the two versions (in-game and CGI) of [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep the fight between Master Xehanort and Terra, Ventus and Aqua]]... ''while claiming the in-game graphics to be those of the 3DS and the CGI graphics to be those of the PSV''. Not only is it ridiculous, [[CriticalResearchFailure but also the truth is the exact opposite]]: the 3DS can pull off better graphics than BBS, while those of the Vita can't reach those boasted by, you know, ''a FullMotionVideo''.

* Website/YouTube personality {{Tobuscus}} does a weekly video clip series called "Cute Win Fail" in which users vote on the most epic clip of three, one of which is from each of the aforementioned categories. Needless to say, the "Fail" clips are a celebration of this trope, and if they are chosen are glorified with the honor of "Epic Fail".

* In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', Arin and Suzy spend two episodes fighting Quiet with the intention of bringing her back to motherbase, something that is immediately ruined by Arin defeating her and then shooting her during the cutscene by mistake. Suzy proceeds to get upset and start shouting at him about just how badly he fucked up; meanwhile Arin is insisting that it happened because he had no idea he actually ''could'' shoot her, and that "we'll go and get her back later."

* LetsPlay/JesseCox's Let's Play of ''VideoGame/GameDevTycoon'' comes to a screeching halt when his MMO's maintenance costs exceeds his profits. Now, that wouldn't be so bad, but it turns out that he had ''billions of dollars'' before he lost it all. His MMO's maintenance was so expensive that it ''killed his game''. How did this happen? Turns out Jesse essentially went balls-to-the-wall in game development and never realized how much that really costs! By the time he realizes it, he's deep in the red and he can't pull out.
