Thanks to a very TroubledProduction, the game had the markings of a ObviousBeta when it was released, suffering from numerous critical bugs and other problems, and although quite a few was fixed by patches, Troika went under shortly after the release, resulting in many of them remaining unaddressed. Luckily, a small dedicated modding community around the game has fixed most of these over the years through [[http://www.patches-scrolls.de/patch/4647/66381/66382/description Unofficial Patches]] (the latest of which can also be found [[http://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/561-vampire-the-masquerade-bloodlines-unofficial-patch/ here]]).

* BiTheWay: The women you can feed on in night clubs and some of the men can be seduced both by male and female [=PCs=]. Jeanette and Velvet will both hit on you (and in the former's case, sleep with you if you chose the right dialogue options) regardless of your character's gender, and your own characer can be played that way (though it's easier if you play female). Heather also falls in love with you regardless of your gender, but in her case it has less to do with her being actually bisexual than with the bloodbound making a SingleTargetSexuality toward you. Finally, there is [[DepravedBisexual Jezebel]].

* BlackAndGreyMorality: As fitting for the World of Darkness. The Camarilla is mostly made of manipulative schemers who try to use you as pawns for their own benefit, and the Anarch, while despicted in a slightly better light, are shown for many to be needlessly agressive, slightly racist and a bit extremists in some of their ideas, but both are overall better people than the AlwaysChaoticEvil Sabbat. It's worth mentioning that the closest thing we have from a good guy in the Camarilla is Maximilian Strauss, a ''[[TokenEvilTeammate Tremere]]''.

* DisposableSexWorker: Played pretty much straight. It's hardly a ''good'' idea to go around murdering prostitutes, but the consequences are entirely personal, not because anyone, you know, cares about the prostitute. If you remember to stop just before they cork it, you can go on a cheery prostitute-drinking spree to no penalties whatsoever.
** Averted insofar as killing a prostitute will cost you just as much Humanity as killing any other person.

* RapeAsBackstory: [[spoiler: Jeanette and Therese were sexually abused by their father as children, which is the root of their Malkavian psychosis. When you talk to them during their attempt to "kill" each other, Jeanette taunts Therese with the knowledge that [[RapeAndRevenge Therese was the one who killed their father]]... because she caught him in bed ''with Jeanette.'' It's unclear if she did it to protect her sister, or out of a twisted sense of jealousy.]]
