** Danger Price in one instance had ''two'' prices revealed at the same time when the model pressed only one button to reveal one price. Both of the prices revealed were "correct" (as in not being the titular price to avoid) and Drew had to allow the contestant to keep the freebie, making the game easier for him.

The debut of the game's current setup ironically had a similar incident in the nighttime 1986 specials, where the last "safe" price turned around on its own and netted the contestant an immediate win.

** Bart Eskander, who replaced Paul Alter, is generally cited as The Price is Right's worst director due to his oversimplifying of camera angles (e.g. not showing Bonus Game as it spins on the turntable).

** If you get called down, ''don't'' make joke bids like $420 or anything ending in 69--fans will never forgive you for wasting a spot in Contestant's Row if you do (and neither will the producers, Viacom or CBS; one contestant who kept making bids like these plus a $2,000,000 bid got the episode he appeared on banned from reairing).

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: Safe Crackers originally used [[RealSongThemeTune the theme from]] ''Film/ThePinkPanther''. Now, it uses a cue similar to it.

Added DiffLines:

* UnfortunateImplications: While not the reason it was retired, Shower Game received complaints from viewers that its rules and setup [[http://golden-road.net/faq/index.php/Pricing_Game_Notes#Shower_Game reminded them of the Holocaust]] which ended some 30 years earlier.

*** The majority of the proceedings were a gigantic advertisement for the department store chain Big W. Every grocery item or prize was promoted as being "[[EnforcedPlug provided]]" by Big W, and Plinko and Wonderwall (aka Punch-A-Bunch), both normally played for cash, were instead played for Big W "shopping sprees" (read: store credit).

** The Ludia games are notorious for these with the most infamous being the Showcase Showdown [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard almost always skewing in favor of the computer players]]. The pricing games for ''Decades'' are botched, such as Hurdles being a [[TheyJustDidntCare higher/lower game instead of "pick the grocery item with the lower price than the Hurdler's price"]]. That said, Ludia DID adapt the show more faithfully than a lot of their other game show video games.

* BaseBreaker: Barker's Bargain Bar, depending on who you ask, may be one of the best or one of the weakest games in the rotation. The same can be said about a couple other pricing games.
** When the game returned in April 2012 as Bargain Game after not being played for almost three-and-a-half years (and thought to be retired), the general reaction for the game's return was rejoicing. The new set for the game, on the other hand...



* BrokenBase: Cover Up originally had contestants covering up a fake price. Since the end of Season 41, contestants cover up random symbols [[CouchGag which change with each playing]]. On one side, you have fans agreeing with Drew's point that covering up fake numbers to start the game is pointless and looking forward to seeing what symbols pop up. Then you have fans [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks complaining that they changed it for the sake of change]] and that covering up the fake price was an iconic part of the game.
