* Try playing the other ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' games after finding out in ''Shattered Soldier'' that [[spoiler: the aliens invaded Earth because [[WellIntentionedExtremist the Triumvirate had secretly stolen a sacred relic from them]], and that Lance Bean became a WellIntentionedExtremist himself by trying to overthrow the Triumvirate.]] And try playing ''Shattered Soldier'' after [[spoiler: seeing Lucia become one of the members of the QuirkyMinibossSquad that must be defeated.]]

* Iris's death scene in ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' was sad to begin with, but following Creator/YukoMizutani's untimely death might make this a bit harder to watch.
* Try playing ''[[VideoGame/TimeCrisis Time Crisis II]]'' after finding out about [[spoiler: the plot twist in the fifth game that Robert Baxter, the second player, is now the VSSE traitor and the BigBad of the game.]]

* Minor one for the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series, Madonna (a scrapped human character, probably based on the singer by the same name) [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was planned on being Sonic's girlfriend early on]], but the idea was dropped because of fear regarding how American viewers would be disgusted with the human-animal relationships. Come ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006'', and it turns out that ''they were right'', as the Elise and Sonic romance scenes was one of the most criticized aspects, especially with [[spoiler:Elise kissing Sonic to resurrect him after getting killed by Mephiles through the power of the Chaos Emeralds,]] which is stated to be the single worst moment in the whole game.

* The third mission in ''VideoGame/SilentScope 2'', which came out less than a year before 9/11, has a cargo plane being hijacked, and it crashes at the end of the mission. Worse, the PS2 version was released ''[[TooSoon on]]'' 9/11.

* ''Franchise/ThelegendOfZelda'':
** The Happy Mask Salesman who appears in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'', ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask Majora's Mask]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames Oracle of Ages]]'' is eerily reminiscent of Website/FourChan's anti-Semitic "Happy Merchant" meme.

* Two in ''[[VideoGame/MarioBros Mario Super Sluggers]]'', both relating to the "close play" feature. At third base and home plate, if a fielder receives the ball just as a baserunner approaches, the runner can attack the fielder thereby jarring the ball loose. Since the game was released, UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueBaseball instituted two rule changes, [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks both unpopular with fans]]. In the 2014 season, MLB brought in the Posey rule which prevents catchers from blocking the plate unless they have the ball. Two seasons later, a rule was added prohibiting takeout slides unless the baserunner makes contact with the bag.

* In 1994, there was a ''Troy Aikman NFL Football'' for Sega Genesis with a commercial that touted [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SBCl1UrsDbY "They stole Troy Aikman's brain!"]] After the NFL concussion controversy, considering Aikman was concussed many times during his career (multiple times in his final season, 2000), him saying "homina homina homina" doesn't seem so funny anymore.
