* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Jak II was [[EpilepticTrees claimed]] by some to be a thinly veiled protest against the 2003 invasion of Iraq and the Bush administration ([[FauxSymbolism as supposedly represented by the MetalHead War and Baron Praxis respectively]]), particularly accusations that that they are wars that were fought solely for political and/or economic gain by governments that had illegitimately gained power.[[note]]With Baron Praxis's usurpation of power supposedly paralleling the Presidential election of 2000[[/note]] There is no proof of that NaughtyDog had any sort of political agenda when they made the game and for that matter had been in development well before the controversies regarding the Iraq War began.

* FanPreferredCouple: Initially it was Jak/Ashelin for those who want to see TheHero get with the FemmeFatale. NaughtyDog seemed to have caught on to that [[spoiler:because in ''Jak 3'', Ashelin becomes Jak's LoveInterest while Jak's previous LoveInterest Keira is DemotedToExtra, while Torn, who was implied to be with Ashelin by ''Jak II's'' end, doesn't react at all]]. Of course [[spoiler:massive backlash ensued. Eventually in ''Jak X'', [[AuthorsSavingThrow Keira and Jak were back together, as were Ashelin and Torn]], and the Jak/Ashelin romance was never mentioned again]].

* SoOkayItsAverage: Seems to be the case with ''Daxter'' on the [[UsefulNotes/PlayStationPortable PSP]]; it's neither as well-loved as the original trilogy, nor as hated as ''[[VideoGame/JakAndDaxterTheLostFrontier The Lost Frontier]]''. It does fill some {{Plot Hole}}s in the origibal trilogy, but it's nothing special beyond that.

* MisBlamed: Many fans hate High Impact because of ''TLF'', even though the game's writers work for '''Naughty Dog''' and the scriptwriter is the same one that did the rest of the series.

That said, this doesn't defend them from criticisms of the core gameplay, which, while based on ideas Naughty Dog had, was nonetheless their doing due to using their own take on said ideas.

** In ''TPL'', during their fateful trip to Misty Island, Daxter goes on a short tirade about how the Precursors were probably losers. Almost immediately, he's knocked into the Dark Eco [[spoiler:and is turned into one himself]]

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: ''Daxter'' takes place during the 2 years Jak was captured... except it really doesn't. Even the game itself states "Almost 2 years later" near the beginning and the game seems to take place during the last few days Jak is imprisoned. While the PSP limitations are obviosly an issue, what Daxter was doing during the 2 years before the game takes place is an interesting premise.

** To a lesser degree, the [=PS3=] ports have some issues of their own, like some minor sound and graphics issues, though for the most part, they're still perfectly playable and nowhere near as bad as the Vita versions. Unlike the Vuta versions, fans like the [=PS3=] ports enough to reccomend them to someone who never played the games.
