* FalseFlagOperation: UNATCO says that the bombing of the Statue of Liberty was caused by Silhouette. Silhouette denies this.

** Silhouette allegedly C4'ed the Statue of Liberty because they felt France was wrong to give her to us. [[spoiler: It's implied Majestic 12 did it to pin the blame on them.]]

* MonumentalDamage:
** The game starts with the NSF blowing the head off the Art/StatueOfLiberty in the {{backstory}}. At the top level of the pedestal there is a fenced-off area with a sign, "This building had been condemned"; presumably the statue was no longer structurally sound. In the sequel, the statue is gone altogether and is replaced with a hologram.
** When they didn't have enough space to add the World Trade Center to the game's skyline, the developers handwaved it by saying it was destroyed by a terrorist attack prior to the game's events. The game was released in the year 2000.



** Sucker invulnerable characters (like Gunther in the opening mission at Liberty Island) into attempting to destroy the turrets at the front of the Statue of Liberty, and watch the carnage (and copious amounts of blood) that result.

* ShownTheirWork: With ConspiracyTheories in general. For Example: EnemyChatter in one level has an "Informed Guard" telling a "New Guard" the various [[http://echelonii.tumblr.com/post/47257268654/fema-orders Executive Orders]] that give FEMA the power to do what it's doing, assuring him that it's all legal. Said Executive Orders are cited by conspiracy nuts to mean these things.

For major storyline mods, 2006 saw the release of the ''VideoGame/{{Zodiac}}'' mod, a fan-made {{Interquel}} that allows you to play as Paul Denton. In 2009, the most notable of the game's total conversion mods, ''VideoGame/TheNamelessMod'' was released, featuring an original non-linear plot and fully voiced dialogue. A fan-made prequel, ''[[VideoGame/TwentyTwentySeven 2027]]'' featuring DirectX 9 graphics, and a non-linear plot was released in 2011. ''[[VideoGame/DeusExNihilum Deus Ex: Nihilum]]'' was released in 2013, and is set in an alternate continuity few years before the canonical start of the game.

In the [[{{Dystopia}} dystopian]] [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture near]] [[{{Cyberpunk}} future]], a [[ThePlague deadly plague]] known as the [[{{Nanomachines}} Gray Death]] has befallen mankind. The only known "vaccine", Ambrosia, the distribution of which is tightly controlled by Orwellian government agencies, merely delays the inevitable. Terrorist groups are capitalizing on the increasing desperation of the common folk, and their increasing activity urges world governments to create the UsefulNotes/UnitedNations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO). You follow [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic JC]] Denton, a [[NaiveNewcomer rookie]] [[ElitesAreMoreGlamorous elite]] UNATCO operative, who eventually becomes tangled in a conspiracy plot [[ConspiracyKitchenSink involving]] the [[AncientConspiracy Illuminati]], [[{{Chupacabra}} Chupacabras]], [[TheGreys Greys]], [[BlackHelicopter black helicopters]], genetic design [[ElaborateUndergroundBase underground labs]] and [[AIIsACrapshoot rogue AIs]].

* CriticalExistenceFailure: Going around with 0 HP in every limb cripples you severely, but though you do bleed a lot, it never actually kills you. This is probably because of the nanomachines in your body keeping you alive to the fullest extent possible until you can replenish your health, by sealing your wounds and preventing infection and shock from setting in. Strangely, [=NPCs=] have the same ability to a lesser degree...

** This may be not so much an engine limitation, as simply the programmers' limitation, seeing how the makers of The Nameless Mod have managed to bestow in-game NPCs with several augs that really work, such as speed or regeneration.

** However, there's a mission near the end where you have to rescue a scientist's daughter from the Majestic-12, in which getting caught results in an {{MIB}} killing her, causing you to fail the mission and miss out on a reward. It is still possible to complete the game, though.
