** The scene of Max tapping a water bottle onto the muzzle of his Taurus [=PT92=] reeks of being an homage to StevenSeagal doing the same trick in ''Film/OnDeadlyGround''.

Added namespaces.
Two years later, ''Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne'' came out, in which Max investigates a highly organized and well-funded group of assassins who are wiping out the powerful syndicate The Inner Circle, while becoming entangled with the Circle's possibly-trustworthy-who-knows hitwoman [[BackFromTheDead Mona Sax]]. This second featured better physics and graphics, actual in-engine cutscenes with new animation beyond the standard AI movements, more varied gameplay (including having Mona appear as a playable character for several chapters), and an [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atKv1JyQgV8 original song]] by the newly-formed PoetsOfTheFall. It also rewarded patient players with several additional stories they could choose to watch; if Max stopped at the various televisions scattered around the game, he could catch the latest episode of the obnoxious animated series ''Captain Baseball Bat Boy'', the [[SelfParody self-mocking]] cop show ''[[{{Blaxploitation}} Dick Justice]]'', the amusing period soap ''Lords and Ladies'' or the surprisingly creepy, ''TwinPeaks''-like psychodrama ''Address Unknown''.

* EarWorm: Both the game's theme tune and the song "Late Goodbye" by PoetsOfTheFall in the second game. The latter is also an in-universe example, as various characters in the game are heard singing it or playing it on pianos.

--> '''Max''': He had a baseball bat, and I was tied to a chair. Pissing him off was the smart thing to do.

* RealityEnsues: Reality ensued all over [[ButtMonkey poor Vinnie]], a mob lieutenant with more enemies than friends and such an incurable fanboy for a cartoon KidHero that he'll cosplay without hesitation. Doing so straps him into explosives, and since that puts him in an EnemyMine situation with Max, you figure TheHero should be able to save his life. [[EscortMission And he did]]. [[ShaggyDogStory Temporarily]].
