Despite MultiVersus being positioned by the gaming press and certain players disappointed with the latter game's lack of content as being a "rival" for or having "killed" Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, the development teams behind both games are fans of one another's work.

Due to the poor reviews that the EastEnders game received, publisher Macsen Software would deny its existence to the gaming press.

Don't Buy This
British Telecom's "Firebird Software" label, publishers of Don't Buy This, encouraged players to pirate the game, and had a competition where the players who sent the best hate mail would receive stickers and badges.
Super Mario Maker
When asked about why Super Mario Maker would be releasing on September 11, Nintendo representative Julie Gagnon responded:

“Nintendo is really respectful of this date, but the thing is that when we launched Super Mario Bros back in 1985, it was September 13th. And, as we have worked with retailers on Friday as a launch day, the date worked out as Friday, September 11th for this year.”

Due to this awkward release timing, promotional materials for the game would word the release date as the "11th of September", even in countries that use an MM/DD format.

Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
In an interview with competitive Super Smash Bros. player Hungrybox, the developers of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl claimed that the game would feature cross-play in a future update. Cross-play was eventually finished for the game, but was not able to be released due to Nintendo's strict guidelines on cross-play. On March 3, 2023, the game was released on the Epic Games Store, and cross-play between PC and Switch was accidentally added without announcement, but was removed shortly after, though cross-play between Epic Games and Steam players would continue to exist in the game.

Cross-play would eventually be included in the base game of Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl 2 for all consoles and generations.
El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera
El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera was intended to be developed over a span of 12 months. However, due to the cartoon being abruptly cancelled the game was developed over 2 months instead, with a greatly reduced budget, and a planned Wii version being cancelled.
Drill Dozer
The choice of a young girl protagonist in Drill Dozer was decided by Ken Sugimori as he felt the juxtaposition would be more interesting than the sort of masculine character that would typically be depicted in mech-suit and vehicle-themed media.

Character designer Hironobu Yoshida was opposed to this decision because he found women to be hard to draw, and added thick, boyish eyebrows to Jill's design as a subtle form of protest.
Kingdom Hearts III
Attachment Grand Chef, the Ratatouille keyblade in Kingdom Hearts III, has two bottles of champagne attached to its handles - the artwork on these bottles originates from a poster briefly seen in the movie, but is more commonly associated with a controversial cancelled Ratatouille-branded wine that was intended to be sold in Costco in 2007, but pulled before it could hit shelves due to concerns relating to underaged drinking. While the iteration in the movie shows red wine, the iteration on the wine bottle shows an olive tone of wine - the Grand Chef keyblade features both colors for the wine.

Five Nights at Freddy's Plus
Several days following a controversy, Phisnom announced that he had been terminated from the Fazbear Fanverse Initiative and would no longer be developing Five Nights at Freddy's Plus. Prior to this, he had been banned from the game's Steam forums and removed as a developer. The day after he announced his removal, the game's Steam page was removed from the public, leaving the game's future uncertain.

PAC-MAN Doodle
When Google launched their 2010 Pac-Man anniversary Doodle, the popularity of it was estimated to have cost 4,819,352 man hours and $120,483,800 in productivity.
Action Girlz Racing
Action Girlz Racing claims on its box to be made "for girls, by girls" - however, the credits of the game show that many of the developer names are simply female versions of the names of developers credited on other Data Design Interactive games, such as Karl White becoming "Karla White", Julien Alden-Salter becoming "Julia Alden-Salter", and Teoman Irmak becoming "Teowoman Hermark".

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
Attachment Upon the release of Rilla Roo as a DLC character in Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, the model of the character was heavily criticized for how far it strayed from his original model in Crash Bash, particularly the presence of a large beard and chin on his face, with many fans editing mockups of a more faithful Rilla Roo. In the game's final DLC update, a "fixed" version of Rilla Roo would be provided - however, rather than serving as a skin for, or replacing the original, Rilla Roo, this new Rilla Roo would be made a separate character titled "Fixed Rilla Roo", with his own animations and exotic skins. His victory podium animation has him stop to check his face, and then sigh in relief as a meta-joke.

Sonic Superstars
Attachment In June 2023, the character models for the game received complaints on Twitter by fan artist Rafa Knight, who noted that they resembled her own models of the characters that had been used for merchandise, even having the same minor imperfections as the toys. She claimed she had not been credited for her work either, instead being ignored by Sega and other related figures. In response, Katie Chrzanowski, the social media manager for Sega of America, apologized for the misunderstanding and explained that the models were custom-made for Sonic Superstars, and promised to privately email Knight with more details later on. It's unknown if any more developments in this controversy happened since.

Platform: Atari Jaguar
The Atari Jaguar, despite being marketed as a 64-bit platform, was only a 32-bit platform. Specifically, it used two 32-bit processors (named "Tom" and "Jerry") in parallel, with the marketing adding up those two processors as if they could be mathematically combined.
Upon its initial release, Pooplers was, despite its young target audience, given an M rating by the ESRB for "blood", likely because one of the selectable poop colors in the game is red. Despite this M rating being featured in the game's trailer, the game would eventually be re-evaluated to an E10+ rating for merely "mild blood".

Space Jam
Space Jam's multiplayer mode is absurdly unbalanced, seeming to have a morality-based method of stat calculation, with the hero characters having very powerful stats (with Michael Jordan in particular being maxed out), while the Monstars and villainous Tune Squad members (such as Elmer Fudd and Daffy Duck) generally have very poor stats (most egregiously in the case of Pound, the leader of the Nerdlucks, having merely 1 point speed and shooting, and 2 point rebounds). There is no way to have ditto matches between 2 Monstar teams or 2 Tune Squad teams.
James Pond 2: Codename - RoboCod
James Pond creator Chris Sorrel has expressed disdain at the steady stream of ports that Codename: RoboCod has received in 21st century, citing changes in level design and graphics, a lack of consent or payment, and the Switch port in particular's timing aligning with his Kickstarter for a James Pond reboot.

When asked about the matter by Time Extension, he claimed:

"There are clearly businessmen who see no shame in porting an old game to a modern platform and pretending it has some timeless magic making it worth a modern gamer's time and money, but it sure embarrasses the hell out of me even when I have no part in it."

Mr. Gimmick
Attachment The original Japanese version of Gimmick contains a unique anti-piracy response where, if the opening cutscene is tampered with, the player will not be able to access the secret final level and it will instead cut to a black screen saying "BLACK HOLE" in reference to the game Atlantis no Nazo. Contrary to popular belief, this was not intended as an anti-piracy method, but rather a failed attempt by game designer Tomomi Sakae to prevent his name from being removed from the opening credits. This trigger was neatly edited around its intended purpose, and was eventually removed in the Scandinavian release of the game, though Sakae's name was reinstated as an unused line of intro text.
Following the release of the BBC Micro, independent branches of rival free-to-air channel ITV initiated plans to brand a microcomputer by Transam Computers with the ITV name, selling at the same price as the BBC Micro. This was ultimately vetoed by the Independent Television Companies Association due to ITV being prohibited from sponsoring products at the time, alongside potential conflicts of interest with ITV's own advertisers, which included other microcomputer manufacturers.
