** The player character has figurines of VideoGame/MeatBoy, [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros a mushroom]], [[VideoGame/CaveStory Balrog]], [[VideoGame/BitTrip CommanderVideo]], and the unnamed ''VideoGame/{{Journey}}'' character in one of the later studios. Oh, also [[VideoGame/{{Okami}} Wolf]] and [[{{VideoGame/X-COM}} Origin]] [[http://cdn2.steampowered.com/v/gfx/apps/239820/ss_27c2f806bc4eb8aaed7c12c0ababbca0b9805340.1920x1080.jpg?t=1377246663 Unknown]].

** How this game's timeline tends to skip over events in gaming history, despite reflecting most of it. The UsefulNotes/GameBoy, UsefulNotes/GameBoyColor and UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance are all essentially treated as the same console. In addition, a good part of [[{{Sega}} Sega's]] history is pretty much skipped over with the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn being completely non-existent.

* ConsoleCameo: Since the timeline of the game reflects the actual history of video games, we get to see parodies [[Creator/{{Nintendo}} of]] [[{{Sega}} the]] [[SonyComputerEntertainment big]] [[MicrosoftStudios four's]] systems, as well as a rather popular [[IOSGames brand]] of mobile phone in the game's latter half.

** A common complaint as many of the calculations that determine your success or failure are done under the hood and hidden from the player, requireing a reference wiki if you want to fine-tune your play. That said, a guide is NOT required to make it through to the end using common-sense tactics and strategies.

** The TES (The {{Expy}} for the NES) comes out early in the game and grabs a superior market share, allowing the player to develop games for it. The bait part? Only Young-focused ''casual'' games do well on it, and the player doesn't get the ability to research either target demographics or casual games before a good ammount of time after it has been released.

** It's subtle, but the game seems to aim a few at Sony... sorry, [[Literature/AClockworkOrange Vonny]], as well- The blame for the split with Nintendo is laid at their feet, as is the blame for causing the death of the Dreamcast, much is made of the controversial launch of the PS3, and the announcement of the PSP is implied to be timed to try to sabotage the success of the Nintendo DS.

** Thanks to the way adding "extra features" works, it's entirely possible to make games that are missing some extremely rudimentary features without having them tank horribly. Making an RPG for the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 Playsystem 4]] without a save feature? Sure, why not.

** The early-[[TheEighties 80s]] computer choices are limited to the PC and the C64 -- no hint of the UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum or the UsefulNotes/AmstradCPC, although both were massive in Europe.
