* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: ''3'' can suffer from this. The shallow and materialistic Brancos, not helped by Max himself noting he doesn't care for their attitudes or lifestyle, the villains of the game being ''worse'' than what's come before, and Max's {{Wangst}} after ''two'' failed attempts to get his life back together already, can result in a player simply not caring about the story.

* MemeticMutation:
** "Don't answer that. A rhetorical question." [[labelnote:explanation]] Mentioned by Max himself while talking to the Finito brothers in order to find Jack Lupino. [[/labelnote]]
** "Ladies and gentlemen, it's the pain in the butt!" [[labelnote:explanation]] A mockery done by Joey Finito towards Max while he's searching for Jack Lupino. [[/labelnote]]
** [[Creator/RemedyEntertainment Sam Lake]]'s [[labelnote:spoiler]] A Finnish writer and Max Payne's face model.[[/labelnote]] constipated grimace in the original game. Also, [[AscendedMeme the said grimace is also referenced]] in VideoGame/AlanWake as an EasterEgg while watching "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjY1WDz8TpI The Harry Garret Show]]" at the 2:39 mark.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Every single game that comes out with BulletTime now is met with dubious cries of "oh, ''another'' one?" Though the third game averted this as it received high scores from both critics and fans.

Though the third game averted this as this; it received high scores from both critics critics, and fans.while fans were more mixed, "bullet time has already been done" was almost never a complaint.



** Fans have been known to joke that ''3'' is a surprisingly good ''VideoGame/KaneAndLynch'' sequel. In a more serious note, the game almost seems to be taking some pages out of ''[[Film/ManOnFire Man on Fire's]]'' book. Just look at the first trailer of the game when Max describes his situation and you will notice the similarities instantaneously.

** All the characters in the comic panels cutscenes of the first game are prone to have unintentionally funny and/or weird facial expressions, considering that they are just members of the game team improvising. The second game averted this hiring professional models to pose for the panels.
