* InternetBacklash: As of August 2013, ''Diablo III'' holds a 3.8 from Metacritic users (including over 1000 negative reviews) for the massive lag spikes for being forced to play online at all times, reduced content (like PvP) that were in the prequel and Error 37 (inability to connect to the game).

* UrbanLegendOfZelda: The official site, specifically, the home page, has its own chat gem. After a massive thread on the Battle.net forums discussing whether clicking the gem a certain number of times would unlock the playable version of the gameplay demo seen when the game was released (started by a forum troll and helped by various random people confirming it), the matter was laid to rest when someone looked in the source code of the site, decompiled the flash that operated the chat gem, and determined that its only purpose was to change colors, changing the gem from "on" to "off".

** There was once a legend surrounding the Black Rock Ledger Pages, which can be retrieved from Act II. It involved, among other things, taking all pages and opening a portal to Whimsyshire or finishing the game with it in your inventory, but nothing came of any attempts to prove the rumors. It was eventually determined that the pages were nothing more than an EasterEgg dedicated to Series/{{Lost}}.

*** In addition to this, in the first draft of the game story, it's said that all the heroes from 2 except the Barbarian has been driven into insanity since their last battle with Diablo and Baal. The reference to the Necromancer's apprentice, and Reaper of Souls' appearance of the spirit of the Sorceress (who was perfectly sane), along with the Barbarian's new identity, defies that, implying that while they went separate ways, not everyone (or none) went bonkers.

* DemandOverload: The disastrous launch was a particularly infamous example of this, because even people who just wanted to play the single player campaign could not play because of the required internet connection.
