Fallout 3
Attachment
Liberty Prime is loosely modeled after Gort, from the 1951 movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

The "Prime" in Liberty Prime is actually NOT an intentional reference to Optimus Prime from the Transformers, as many people suspected.

Left 4 Dead
Attachment
During development, there was another Special Infected called the Screamer, when attacked or agitated, the Screamer would run to a safe location and yell out a loud Scream, calling out a horde of zombies. While it was cut, many things were retained from it. The idea of attracting hordes was given to the Boomer in the form of his Bile. The concept of having to avoid an enemy completely or suffer the consequences was given to the Witch. His scream was given to the Hunter, and his maniacal cackle was given to the Jockey.

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
Attachment
The game was originally envisioned by SEGA to be a reboot to the entire franchise, and to build the game similar to the Adventure series, fearing that the previous "Sonic Heroes" and "Shadow the Hedgehog" had made the series stray too far. This also explains the realistic art direction that the game took, along with certain character interactions that don't make sense.

Pokemon Yellow
Data exists for a battle situation when the Trainer has no Pokémon, though it isn't actually used when entering a battle with no Pokémon in the final release. In this case, selecting any option other than Run shows the message "Hurry, get away!" This may have been a prototype for the initial battle with the wild Pikachu at the start of the player's adventure, as the player has no Pokémon at that point. It could also have been planned for a possible battle against a wild Spearow with Pikachu unable to battle, making it closer to the events of the anime.

Portal 2
The Turret Opera, the song that was played at the end of the game, was sung entirely by Ellen McLain, who voiced both GlaDOS and the turrets. When recording the song, Ellen was asked to make up some words to put in the song, which she did using her "very bad high school Italian."

Pac-Man's name was changed from Puck-Man because arcade operators feared vandals would alter the letter P to F on the arcade machine.

Left 4 Dead
Attachment
Originally, the Boomers bile was red, and he was meant to have no "puking" capabilities. Instead, he was to explode onto the survivors, dealing significant damage. This was later changed to incorporate the "Screamers" (a cut special infected type) horde-attracting abilities.
