* Creator/{{Sega}}'s American marketing campaign is an example of "{{take that}}" taken to extremes that have rarely been seen since. Aside from the classic marketing slogan "Genesis Does What Nintendon't", there's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eP04XzC-GkA this commercial]] taking a jab at the UsefulNotes/GameBoy's monochrome screen. Later Sega commercials, like the ad for VideoGame/NIGHTSIntoDreams had random people throwing UsefulNotes/PlayStation [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hv1BE1bexCg off skyscrapers]], among other things.

* ''VideoGame/{{BioShock|1}}'' in general can easily be interpreted as a take that to Ayn Rand's Objectivism philosophy. Especially when one considers Andrew Ryan's name is almost an anagram of Ayn Rand. The BigBad is [[spoiler: named [[Literature/TheFountainhead Fontaine]], but uses the pseudonym "Literature/{{Atlas|Shrugged}}",]] obvious references to Rand's books..

* E3 2010 was full of take that on all sides. A particularly memorable one was Nintendo talking about how glasses 3D was weak and showing off their glasses-free Nintendo3DS immediately before Sony's glasses 3D-heavy announcements.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfTanks'' has a series of advertisements that poke fun at more "common" games, namely EVEOnline, ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', and your typical Tank Simulator and Racing game. The WoW one has your typical fantasy "tank" (as in the character archetype) curb stomp a group of players, only to get run over by - you guessed it - a tank. The other, non-gameplay trailers are roughly the same thing, only modified for each different subject matter.

* When Activision and Bungie announcedd that they had entered a marketing partnership with Red Bull to offer an exclusive mission in ''VideoGame/{{Destiny}}'' for any players who bought a can, the makers of ''VideoGame/DyingLight'' [[http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2015/06/weirdness_drink_a_glass_of_water_to_get_free_dying_light_dlcn fired back with a Twitter campaign]] that offered a free code for anyone who tweeted a picture of themselves drinking an ordinary glass of water with the tag #drinkrightdyinglight.

Suffice it to say, it took a lot of [[TrialAndErrorGameplay trial and error]], some scorched eyebrows and more levers than I could count.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOftheOldRepublicII'': The first game was a borderline ClicheStorm that was a near-perfect StarWars story played straight. The sequel? Hand a guy with a philosophy degree (who also write ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment'') the StarWarsExpandedUniverse and a character to act as his mouthpiece. Avellone ended up ''hating'' the Expanded Universe, and proceeded to ''[[DeconstructorFleet tear everything in Star Wars a new one]]'' - the Jedi and Sith philosophy, the long-running cyclical religious war between the two factions, the trillions of {{Muggles}} who get killed in the crossfire, the ProudWarriorRace aspect of the Mandalorians, even The Force itself is given an incredibly cynical view.

* There's a [[GameMod hack]] of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'', titled ''Sonic 2 Dimps Edition'', which is a large-scale Take That at recent Sonic games developed by Creator/{{Dimps}}, particularly the first episode of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4''. Notable features include random speed boosters everywhere, an altered soundtrack, physics tweaks and a heavy reliance on the homing attack.

** ''Sonic 1 Boomed'' is a hack of the original ''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog1 Sonic the Hedgehog]]'' game for the Genesis that is basically one giant take that to ''VideoGame/SonicBoom: Rise of Lyric''. The hack gives Sonic and Dr. Eggman their ''Boom'' designs and turns the former into a MotorMouth, saying his lines from ''Rise of Lyric'', as well as a few from [[WesternAnimation/SonicBoom the cartoon]] every time he collects rings, destroys enemies, or bounces off springs, among other things. The developers of the hack also credited Big Red Button Entertainment, the company that developed ''Rise of Lyric'', as the company that developed the hack.
