* Played straight by console generations following UsefulNotes/TheGreatVideoGameCrashOf1983; third generation consoles were called 8-bit, followed by 16-bit and this lead to the standard of naming game console generations by the next power of 2. However, this habit became less popular in the [[UsefulNotes/TheFifthGenerationOfConsoleVideoGames 5th generation/32-bit era]] and had all but disappeared by the next generation.
* Justified in ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters'' series; the first game is named ''VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters '94'' and each game takes a year after another, both in-story and in RealLife, so the next game is '' '95'', '' '96'' etc. The pattern continues until ''2003'', at which point the series switches to Roman numerals to cover up a gap between releases (''KOF XI'' was released in 2005).
