* SlidingScaleOfLinearityVsOpenness: Many of the books are level 1 or 2; Ian Livingstone is infamously known for this. The most ambitious books - especially Jonathan Green's three all-new books for the Wizard series[[note]]''Howl of the Werewolf'', ''Stormslayer'' and ''Night of the Necromancer''[[/note]] - manage to reach level 4 or 5, usually by keeping track of events with codeword systems.

''Robot Commando'' is still the reigning champion with not only giving you absolute freedom of movement but even a way to achieve a fully victorious ending without fighting the BigBad.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: It's long been rumored that you can successfully complete ''Starship Traveller'' without ever having to roll the dice. These rumors are correct, meaning you rolled up an entire crew of elite spacefarers for nothing.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: [[spoiler: A rather serious writing fumble in ''Temple of Terror''. Early in the book the player learns a small selection of magic spells. Midway through the book an unavoidable event happens that disables their magic, and they're told what it was if they try to cast another spell and that their spells don't work anymore. They're also told their character doesn't know it, though, making the whole thing kind of surreal and disconnecting.]]
