* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'', there are two generic black street gangs in one area. Over the course of the game, you can fully eliminate one of them. Starting a new game from the options while playing a game with that gang eliminated will also remove them from the new game, making that branch of missions {{Unwinnable}}.

** In the PS3 HD Remaster of ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankUpYourArsenal Up Your Arsenal]]'' there's a glitch where entering first person mode in the casino film set can cause the screen to become covered in a peach tone, which can follow you around the level after and is easily dealt with by not pressing the first person button throughout the level. But occasionally the game may cause the glitch and extend it after Ratchet exits first person making the game unplayable unless the game is reset.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Shrek Super Slam'', for some reason, can corrupt its own save data if you've made a lot of "game save" instances (for the PS2 version at least), forcing you to delete the corrupted data and start over. It's recommended for players to only keep the memory card in if they're going for unlockables (especially the unlockable-heavy challenge mode) or after obtaining an achievement, since the game saves after every battle regardless of mode.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/WWEVideoGames'' has a potential '''''system breaking bug,''''' yes emphasis is needed here. Earlier titles have a tendency to glitch or crash, [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard especially if you are winning,]] however were this to happen in ''2K16'' it can result in your hard drive being corrupted ala the ''Soul Calibur'' example above and losing everything. Save data, games, any music or video you may have stored, everything, and there is no way to recover what the game had lost. Your only option is to format your system and start from scratch.

* The original ''ColossalCaveAdventure'' got ported to many, many systems. Somewhere along the way, one version picked up a couple of bugs, and then the bugged version got ported further by people who didn't check that the version they were copying could be completed. Several of them are potential game-breakers, but the simplest example is one of the many treasures you need to collect and store in order to unlock the endgame. The treasure is just lying in a remote chamber, and all you have to do is pick it up. In the bugged versions, typing "get spices" gives the response "You can't be serious!" No spices means no endgame.

* One happened during the 4th Konami Arcade Championship in 2015 that prevented ''VideoGame/SoundVoltex'' finalists from playing the intended FinalBoss song "Everlasting Message". Instead, they were given a filler round of "For [=UltraPlayers=]" (the final round song of the previous KAC) and had to come back a month later for another shot at "Everlasting Message".

** Since the red gun can make effectively limitless amounts of cubes, and the game can only handle so many cubes at once, it's possible to crash the game while performing convenient but inefficient bypasses of simple puzzles, or from just generally screwing around. Creating a block cube is also liable to crash the game, unless it's small enough. It's it's taller than your character, you are pushing it.

* There's a nasty glitch in ''VideoGame/TheDivision'' which can occur after equipping a high-capacity backpack. At first the game may fail you even have the backpack equipped but won't allow you to equip another one, thereby cutting out a sizable amount of your inventory but it can escalate further by locking your account out of the game.

* The [[UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash Flash]] version of Creator/NinjaKiwi's ''[[ExcitedShowTitle Hungry Sumo!]]'' has a bug where the game [[UnwinnableByDesign outright crashes]] if your sumo(s) hit an enemy sumo, which explains why the game cannot be played directly on the website. Even worse? The game was discontinued, destroying any chance of having the bug get fixed. But hey, at least the mobile version's fully functional.
