Night Trap
Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition, an expanded 2017 re-release of the game for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC, uses the full uncompressed video footage recorded for the original game. Additional bonus content includes deleted scenes like an introduction scene for the game's story and a death scene featuring Danny (which was most likely cut due to Danny's young age), as well as a behind-the-scenes developer commentary, a "theater mode" to watch all of the game's story, a "survivor mode" that will randomly place Augers in the house, and a playable version of "Scene of the Crime", the first prototype of Night Trap created in 1986 to pitch an unreleased console called the Control-Vision to Hasbro.

Most likely because this game was released as a launch title for the Xbox, it was released in an incomplete state in the North American market in November 2001. As such, the European and Japanese versions of the game, which released a few months later, feature a new opening cutscene as well as extra content and gameplay updates such as new costumes and attacks for certain characters. Between June and September 2002, the Official Xbox Magazine distributed a "Booster Disk" for Dead or Alive 3, which included the new opening cutscene and all of the extra costumes released in the European and Japanese versions of the game. It did not, however, contain the new attacks or gameplay balancing that the other versions brought. This update would later be released as unlockable sync-able content under the name "DOA3 Booster Disc" in Dead or Alive Ultimate upon unlocking every costume in the game.

Metal Gear Solid
In the English localization of the game, when Ocelot and Liquid Snake discuss their demands to the president, Ocelot states their demands as including "1 billion dollars" for both the original PlayStation release and the GameCube remake. In the original Japanese release of the PlayStation version, he states it as "50 million dollars". However, for the Japanese release of the GameCube remake, there is no dub of the game's voice lines in Japanese, while the subtitles translated to Japanese still say "1 billion dollars". Whether or not "1 billion dollars" or "50 million dollars" is a mistake in the game's script or was changed for future releases of the game is unknown.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
When designing the DLC character Steve from Minecraft, most of the game's stages were redesigned to accommodate for his Mine neutral special move which allows him to farm certain materials on stage-specific surfaces to then use to craft stronger weapons. However, not every surface has been programmed to mine the materials expected to appear from the surface Steve is standing on. The most notable example of this occurs on most of the trees in the game, where they can produce Dirt materials instead of Wood.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
According to Sakurai in a Famitsu column, Sephiroth's inclusion as DLC in this game was his attempt to include more villains and/or bosses into the series as fighters, stating that the inclusion of such characters as playable was "rare". For one reason or another, he felt Final Fantasy VII's lead antagonist was an appropriate choice for this. He also stated that his game developing philosophy for these types of characters was that he wanted them to "feel like bosses" when playing as or against them.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Sakurai and his team originally had different plans for a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 DLC character. He tried to include Rex as a playable character alongside Pyra, at first thinking of an Ice Climbers-like system where the player would control both characters at the same time, but this ended up presenting programming problems including one involving the game's memory capacity due to the size of the characters. He then had an idea of making Rex a background character whenever Pyra fights, in a similar manner to the Pokémon Trainer. He eventually felt this second method would also be taxing to the game and that fans would not be fond of it anyway so it was scrapped. He then came up with the idea to have Pyra be a transforming character (similar to how Zelda and Shiek were before Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U) with her turning into Mythra and additionally have Rex appear only in taunts, Final Smashes, and other extraneous details involving the characters.

The DLC, "Legacy of the First Blade, Shadow Heritage", was the subject of controversy and backlash from the LGBTQ+ community. At the end of the DLC, the player character was forced to be part of a heterosexual relationship, ending with the player character having a child with another character. Many players saw this as a disservice to the LGBTQ+ community, and Ubisoft going back on their commitment of diversity and inclusion within the game. Despite allowing the player to choose their sexuality through multiple romantic encounters throughout the game, the DLC gave no option to decline the relationship, forcing players to engage in the heterosexual relationship. Furthermore, completing this unlocked an achievement titled, "Growing Up". The developers apologized and released a patch for the DLC. In the patch, the ending is still the game, and a baby is born, but the player character is allowed to clarify that they choose to do so to "further their bloodline", and not for romantic reasons. The title of the achievement was also changed to "Blood of Leonidas".

After footage of the game's final boss surfaced from pre-release copies, players expressed concern to the developers that some intense rapidly flashing lights and other visuals during the final boss may cause serious seizures to players that have Photosensitive epilepsy, and in general may be an eyesore to players that are not epileptic. The developers understood and significantly changed the battle effects in a day-one patch that was heavily recommended by Square Enix to be downloaded by future players.

Grand Theft Auto IV
An update released three days before the game's 10th anniversary on April 26th, 2018 added new songs to radio stations, while simultaneously removing songs due to licensing-expiration issues. Among the many song replacements, the Electro-Choc, Fusion, JNR, Massive B, and Tuff Gong radio stations remained untouched, while almost every song featured in the Vladivostok FM station was cut and replaced with new songs with one exception, "Liberty City: The Invasion" by Seryoga, an original song written for the game's soundtrack. These changes also carried over to the Episodes from Liberty City DLC expansions.

The characters Jesus and Buddha were reskinned, without any changes to either one's movesets, into the characters Saint and Zen, respectively, explicitly in response to controversy over the game's depiction of these religious figures.

Series: Project Diva
NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
Starting with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F and onward, SEGA has made changes to the game's edit/photo mode. In the Japanese version, if the player tries to lower the camera in order to get a panty shot of a 3D model, they will be met with a loud police siren and the model will suddenly disappear with a warning message appearing at the top of the right hand side of the screen. This was done in response to players creating custom videos and photos of Miku in NSFW situations upon the release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F. This change was also implemented across all other regional versions.

One of the random title screen splash messages "Woo, /v/!", a reference to the dedicated video game imageboard "/v/" on website 4chan, was removed from the PC Java version of the game in update ver.1.17 released in 2021. It's unknown why it was removed, neither was it mentioned in the game's official patch notes, but it's presumably due to the controversial nature of the website which Microsoft may wish to distance themselves from.

During the game's early years, the game's creator Markus "Notch" Persson had heavily promoted the game on a number of websites including 4chan, which its success he partly attributed to the website.

The Hindu goddess Kali's design was initially more revealing, however during the game's beta, her appearance was changed to have her more clothed, in addition to new voice lines and updated abilities.

It's thought that her redesign was due to receiving backlash from practicing Hindus, who also objected to her inclusion. However, it's also possible this was done due to working with Chinese publisher Tencent to make the game more family friendly.

In an update for the game released in November, 2020, two in-game podcasts featuring journalist Helen Lewis were replaced by Ubisoft after receiving complaints from concerned gamers. This was due to Lewis being known in the public for having transphobic views and writing a number of articles criticizing legislation which were in support of making gender transitioning easier.

Ubisoft told in a statement that the speaker profiles for the scripted in-game podcasts were chosen by an external producer that worked with the development team. They promised that in future they'd perform background checks on any future partners.

In an update, more advertisements were added to the game which would appear during replay moments of matches. Despite the game already featuring advertisements, these additional ones received backlash from the community and were disabled from appearing again.

A member of EA's community team posted a statement via reddit:
"Earlier this week, the team turned on ad placements in EA SPORTS UFC 4 that appeared during the “Replay” moments in gameplay. This type of advertising inventory is not new to the UFC franchise, though we have typically reserved displaying ads to specific main menu tiles or Octagon logo placement. It is abundantly clear from your feedback that integrating ads into the Replay and overlay experience is not welcome.

The advertisements have been disabled by the team and we apologize for any disruption to gameplay that players may have experienced. We realize that this should have been communicated with players ahead of time and that’s on us. We want to make sure our players have the best possible experience playing EA SPORTS UFC 4, so ad integration in the Replay and overlay experience will not be reappearing in the future. Thank you for your continued feedback on EA SPORTS UFC 4."

In the Battle for Azeroth expansion there is a Kingdom Hearts reference. Specifically, if the player goes to the Thresher's Wharf area of Stormsong valley and climb a tall structure they can find three Beleaguered Watchmen looking out dramatically at the water. The way they are positioned, dressed, and how the scene is choreographed, make them look like the three original human characters from Kingdom Hearts: Sora, Kairi, and Riku.

There is an item in the game that was originally called "Switch". This item had it's name changed to "Light Switch" in a version 1.2.0. It's possible the name change came about so that players would not confuse the aforementioned item with the "Nintendo Switch" which is another obtainable item in the game.
