Misuse. Developers Foresight is when the game has a response for unlikely player actions.
* ''VideoGame/AlphaProtocol'' keeps track of how many people you've knocked out and killed without actually tracking the number. Knocked out people are tracked by medical costs, while killed people are tracked by [[WhatTheHellHero how many orphans you've created]]. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything Killing people in poorer countries creates more orphans, while knocking out people in richer countries creates bigger medical bills.]]

* ''MetalGearSolid3'': Interesting example; many games keep track of how many enemies you've killed. When you face [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Sorrow]], however, you actually face them. Every one. And they still have the injuries you inflicted upon them, too.
