Epic Mickey
According to Warren Spector. He considers Epic Mickey(along with Deus Ex) as the high point of his career. For bringing back the character Oswald the lucky rabbit and getting fan mail regarding his work on Epic Mickey from fans.

"I suspect no one at Disney realizes that we made Ortensia up for our game. I'm sure people at Disney think Ortensia is a part of Disney's history. We made her up. So the fact that Oswald is back, and the fact that Ortensia is now a part of Disney's history, is because of a video game. That's very cool.

I got more fan mail about Epic Mickey than any game I've ever worked on. It was more heartfelt fan mail than any game I've ever worked on. We touched people in a way that games just never touch people.

Screw Metacritic. Screw the gamers who didn't like our camera. Screw everybody. I am really proud of that game, and I am really proud of the team that made it, and nothing is going to ever sway me from feeling like that was one of the high points of my career."

Sonic and the Black Knight
Sega held a competition for fan artwork of Sonic characters. The top twenty of the US, Europe and Japan were placed in the game for display and their artists would win a free copy of the game

However, one of the winning entries submitted by Antonino Miniero was discovered to actually be a replica of a piece of fan art by artist Mega777. Miniero was disqualified by Sega of Europe and did not receive a copy of the game.

Miniero later issued a full apology on the Sonic Italia message boards stating:
"I thought they would have turned to websites to check for any malpractice. When I found out I won, I cannot deny the fact that I was happy, but having won with that picture I was also afraid of such a reaction.
All this is absolutely not an excuse to justify my actions, I know I have been wrong and I take all the responsibility for what I did, accepting any decision made by SEGA and SonicItalia.
I want to apologize to all those who were offended by this, especially with the “21st” winner, it is my fault they did not win.
I officially apologize to MEGA777 for having soiled her masterpiece. I respect her very much, and for the fact that I had acted against her, albeit unintentionally, I feel deplorable."

Street Fighter III
The hand sings used by Oro during his animations for blocking/parrying an attack, using his normal fireball, or using his Yagyou Dama super art, are know as mudra, which are symbolic or ritual gestures from the Hindu and Buddhist faiths; later on incorporated into various eastern styles of martial arts. Additionally, Oro draws Ki energy from a specific part of his body depending on where his hand is placed, for example, if Oro placed his hand on his head he's drawing energy from the brow chakra, and when placed on the chest he's drawing energy from the heart chakra.

James Bond 007: From Russia with Love
The criminal organization in the game is called OCTOPUS as opposed to SPECTRE in the James Bond film series which the game is based on. It's possible this was due to the legal battle at the time between film production company EON and Kevin McClory, who the latter then owned the rights to SPECTRE and Blofeld.

Console: SNES
Nintendo planned to create the CD Add-on for the SNES. Nintendo partnered with Sony and Philips to create the CD Add-on, but it was ultimately cancelled. This agreement allowed Philips to use Nintendo's IP on their own Gaming Console, the "Phillips CD-i.

Sony's own gaming ventures appear to have been influenced by this as the canceled reader was dubbed "The Play Station", akin to the PlayStation.

Capcom Fighting Evolution
Demitri's Midnight Bliss attack turns Zangief into "Zangyura-chan, the little tangerine vending Russian girl". The name is based on a typo made by Gamest magazine while they were covering a Street Fighter 2 Turbo location test, stating that "By pressing all kick buttons, Zangyura can do a very quick Super Uriajjō, without collision detection in his legs" (ザンギュラはキックボタン3つ同時押しで足に判定のない、早めの回転のスーパーリアッが出せる。).

The visual design of Zangyura, as well as the fact she sells oranges is based upon Russian cartoon character Čeburaška, who in one film was discovered in a crate full of oranges.
