* HilariousInHindsight: The Action Gamemaster was a failed system, but nowadays, the [[http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/ed6b/?itm=adwords_labelsElectronics_%26_Gadgets_and_adwords_labelsOn_Sale&rkgid=1143960676&cpg=oghe1&source=google_home_electronics&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&gclid=CL38hK6e77sCFcVQ7AodEVIALw#tabs Retro Duo Portable System]] can play both NES and SNES games with today's technology. And the [[http://www.yoyo.com/p/hyperkin-retron-3-nes-snes-genesis-triple-system-vector-red-174070?site=CA&utm_source=Google&utm_medium=cpc_Y&utm_term=XSX-084&utm_campaign=Google&noappbanner=true&CAWELAID=1324467200&utm_content=pla&ci_sku=XSX-084&ci_gpa=pla&ci_kw={keyword} Retron Console]] can even play Genesis games as well. If only ''Action 52'' was a decent game and the company would've waited until today ...
* JunkRare: Getting an actual cartridge of either ''Action 52'' or ''Cheetahmen 2'' will cost you upwards of at least $300, making it one of the most expensive NES games. But $300 for a unfinished glitchy mess of a game? Not worth it unless you're a collector.

** The theme of ''Dam Busters'' is very reminiscent of [[PachelbelsCanon Pachelbel's Canon in D]], specially the second half.

* HarsherInHindsight: ''Storm Over the Desert'' depicts what appears to be the US and Iraq fighting in a war with tanks. 12 years later, [[TheWarOnTerror it becomes a reality]].
** Considering the First Gulf War was going on around the time this game was made, it was already reality.

** Even worse, that's only what it sounds like using a ROM Utility, in-game? [[FromBadToWorse Even worse.]]

** Even worse, What's more shocking, that's only what it sounds like using a ROM Utility, in-game? [[FromBadToWorse ''[[FromBadToWorse Even worse.]]]]''
**Also interesting to note that the game's manual states the Lollipops' story is something about the main character trying to rescue his girlfriend and it gets darker as he goes. Makes you wonder what kind if NightmareFuelStationAttendant the game could have been if it was developed better.

* TheyJustDidntCare: The head of Active Entertainment, Vince Perri, expected a team of four people (three of whom were just college students) to produce 52 NES games in three months and expected that to be marketable at $200. The level of apathy about quality control or the nuances of game development is staggering.
