** The Flokati rug became a RunningGag on the show, which led host Peter Tomarken to wear one on his head in an episode. Amusingly, it resembled a Colonial wig.

** The Flokati rug became a RunningGag on the show, which led host Peter Tomarken to wear one on his head in an episode. Amusingly, it resembled a Colonial wig. During one episode, Peter announced before the game that the show was about to surpass $4,000,000 in total amount of prizes given away, and that he had a special prize ready for whoever broke that mark. At the end of the episode, that prize turned out to be a Flokati rug!

* One of your rewards for killing a boss (by yourself or while helping another player) or invading and killing a player in ''Videogame/DemonsSouls'' is the restoring of your body. This means that your HP pool is increased, but also means that you become susceptible to invasions, and that dying will now influence the world you're in into becoming harder, potentially losing access to certain items or events altogether. Most people just return to the hub world and kill themselves upon achieving those objectives to be in soul form again without affecting World Tendency.

* The EurovisionSongContest winner gets to host the next year's contest. While this entitles the winner to show huge amounts of tourism ads, getting them made and hosting a contest is basically a huge, expensive hassle and financially impossible for most smaller countries. Often, countries that can't afford to host Eurovision will send in limp squib songs or odd novelty acts in order to avoid winning (resulting in occasional SpringtimeForHitler moments when the novelty ends up being more interesting than anything else in the contest); ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'' [[http://satwcomic.com/eurovision-2012 commented on this]] in 2012 (when Greece and Iceland were in the tank economically). Alternatively, they ''can'' turn it down. Granted, there would be a certain loss of face associated with this, but there's no obligation on them to host, as long as they announce their intention ''not'' to host it within a certain time. ''Series/FatherTed'' parodied this during Ireland's string of victories in TheNineties with the Song For Ireland committee intentionally sending Ted and Dougal's [[StylisticSuck godawful song]] through with Ireland getting nil points at the actual Eurovision.

** Also, Greenlight didn't help anything, a research from 2016 shows that nearly 40% of all games from 'the whole Steam catalogue' were released in that year, Steam getting overflowed with shovelware not even worthy of school projects is a criticism Valve is receiving.
** Another thing that later helped cheap games get revenue were the Steam Trading Cards, which are little bonuses for playing games you bought and they come in a limited quantity, you can choose to keep them, or you can sell them to other users for credit money that you can use to buy other games, however, some games can become so cheap that you can actually buy them and make a profit selling the cards, and since you can get more card packs at random, having a library full of games you don't play can help you get a load of extra money.
