YMMV: Night Trap
  • Angst? What Angst?: The final sequence of the game has the Martins chase Kelly around the house as you trap them one by one. Strangely, none of them seem to mind much that their family members are being trapped and killed in front of them.
  • Fridge Logic: Who the hell places the Override Cable IN PLAIN SIGHT IN THE HALLWAY?!
    • Probably someone who believes in hiding in plain sight.
  • Narm: A lot of the dialogue, but the ending especially.
    • This was actually invoked, too. The "Violence" in the game was deliberately designed to be so cartoonish and over-the-top that nobody would possibly think to try it in real life. The crew was even laughing on-stage at how ridiculous it was.
  • Nightmare Retardant: Invoked. And boy did they succeed.
  • Overshadowed By Controversy: One of the games that contributed to the ESRB ratings; one bathroom scene in particular led to intense Senate hearings in the United States, although the game specifically calls you out for failing to spare the woman.
  • So Bad, It's Good: While the gameplay itself is lacking, the movie that plays out during it is pretty damn hilarious. (Sadly, you won't see most of it if you're going for a perfect score.) Click here to watch it. (Don't worry, it's completely work safe.)
  • Special Effect Failure: You can spot actors with microphones attached to their waists.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: While the Augers were interesting enemies, it would've been more fun to see more normal vampires. We don't get those unless you let one of the Martins escape. Wouldn't it have been cooler to see the previous sleep over guests now vamped come attacking you for blood? Heck, they could've allowed at least Cindy to be bitten so you'd have to face her undead form later.
