These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: World of Goo
Crowning Music of Awesome: Basically the entire soundtrack; it makes little balls of goo with eyeballs absolutely epic. Available for free from the artist here.
Later levels the music may reach Tear Jerker proportions.
Fan Dumb: 2DBoy released the game with no DRM whatsoever because they thought they could trust their audience. Their reward was a 90% pirate rate.
They actually expected this; by 'audience' they meant 'not pirates,' and, true to expectations, despite the number of pirated copies, the game sold very well, especially thanks to it being available on Wii-Ware. As expected, in 2008, Gaming journalists proceeded to cry "What the hell, gamers?" after the independent developers reported the 90% piracy rate. (Mysteriously, all these people who pirated the game were nowhere to be found despite proudly linking others to torrents before.)
Fridge Brilliance: The unveiling of product Z, analog with the product X and Y, leads the game to (falsely) announce "World of Goo is now in... 3d!!". As in X, Y and Z axises on a three dimensional coordinate plane, hee hee.
The "server farm" level involves building a tower of goo on a platform that tips depending on how you distribute its weight. So in order to reach the exit pipe, you must "load balance" the server — a real computing term.
Fridge Horror: It's not the goo balls fault or the Corporation's fault the world is now polluted and destroyed. It's YOURS.
Good Bad Bugs: Since it's a physics-based game, it can be broken, resulting in amazing OCD results.
Nightmare Fuel: By the end of the first chapter you'll likely be pondering the mental stability of the game's writer.
