* The ArcadeGame ''VideoGame/MichaelJacksonsMoonwalker'' might be [[WidgetSeries weird enough]], but it just gets sillier ([[FunnyAneurysmMoment or creepier]]) each year: You ''touch kids'' (in the video game sense, but the fact they are at the height of Michael's crotch does not help) to gain points and powerups (and in the home version, you cannot advance unless you get ''all'' the kids, who are sometimes... hiding), or touch Bubbles the Chimp to get a super cyborg transformation. And then there's the dance attack: MJ randomly does one of three dances, and it wipes out all the enemies on the screen.

** As an in-game example, there's Kogasa Tatara. She's the Stage 2 boss of ''Undefined Fantastic Object'', and as such appears early enough to be part of the demo. She's seen to be rather weak and has an [[WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway apparently worthless power]] of "surprising people". And she's not even very good at it. Play all the way through the game, though, and you discover that [[spoiler:she's also the [[BonusDungeon EX Stage]] MidBoss]]. Surprise!

* In ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'', one mission took place in January 2016 while navigating through Hurricane Alex along the East Coast of the United States. Apparently Project Aces had [[http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2016/01/14/hurricane-alex-azores/78785472/ extreme forecasting predictions]] back in ''2011''!

[[ItMakesSenseInContext It made sense in context,]] but 3 months later ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'' was released, and [[CavalryBetrayal you all]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness ought to know]] [[UriahGambit what happens next.]]

** Another one related to Valve and ''Left 4 Dead 2'' - the German version of the game, to make up for the [[{{Bowdlerise}} content-cuts for violence]], included four extra weapons taken directly from ''VideoGame/CounterStrike: Source''. At the same time, most of the in-game posters for the campaigns had the characters holding what appeared to be [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close_Quarters_Battle_Receiver Mk 18 CQBR rifles]] rather than a weapon that actually appears in the game. Three years later came ''Counter-Strike: Global Offensive'', which used ''Left 4 Dead 2'' models for some of its weapons and replaced the old [=M4A1=] with the Mk 18. * In ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy]]'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Kain Highwind]], voiced by Creator/LiamOBrien, gets called out by [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Lightning]] for his supposedly villainous actions. And then, in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'', Caius Ballad, also voiced by Creator/LiamOBrien, makes his villainous actions clear to Lightning.

''VideoGame/ParasiteEve'' included a weapon labeled as an [=M1911A2=] six years before a project was undertaken in the US military to create M1911 variants with that name. ''VideoGame/{{GoldenEye|Wii}} Reloaded'', ''VideoGame/GhostRecon: Future Soldier'', and ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' all sequentially featured an [=MP7=] with an underbarrel rail instead of an integrated folding foregrip, respectively three, two, and then one year before H&K released an [=MP7A2=] model which replaced the folding grip with a rail. * In ''[[VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy]]'', [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV Kain Highwind]], voiced by Creator/LiamOBrien, gets called out by [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII Lightning]] for his supposedly villainous actions.

* ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare2'' featured the ability to call down a guided missile launched from a Predator UAV. ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird'' featured the similar Reaper Drone, which allowed the player to watch from the perspective of said drone while launching either dumb-fire missiles or guided ones similar to the Predator. Around the same time, ''Modern Warfare 3'' also features a Reaper UAV, which works like a combination of the ''Saints Row'' version's firing modes (missiles guided via laser without the ArrowCam).

* A tombstone in the English translation of the original NES version of the original ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy|I}}'' reads "Here lies Erdrick" (though it said "Here lies Link" in the Japanese version) poking fun at the then-rival ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series, referring to the legendary hero in the first three games. Several years later, ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' publisher Square merged with ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' publisher Enix, resulting in the two series being published by [[Creator/SquareEnix the same company]]. Incidentally, later translations of the game directly translated the engraving on the tombstone, having it read "Here lies Link" as in the Japanese version, losing the joke present in the original translation (although the PlayStation version says 'Erdrick').
