* Quite a lot of ''Fanfic/TheNextFrontier'' had been written before its creator had firmly decided just what it was going to be a crossover ''with''. (''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' was the other possibility.)

* ''{{Halo}}'' was originally conceived as a RealTimeStrategy game, but it made it to shelves as a FirstPersonShooter, probably because its plot and factions coupled with its genre would have made it too similar to RTS heavyweight ''{{Starcraft}}''. [[HaloWars They eventually revisited the RTS idea, though]]. ** Also, the developers changed genres because they decided they wanted to play as the soldiers. Initially Halo was a third person shooter for Macs (which can be seen in early videos and screenshots) but became a first person shooter when Bungie was purchased by Microsoft.
