Spec Ops: The Line
The development team wanted to give the player the feeling that the game "was physically opposing you, not simply as a simulation, but also as the game itself." This includes things like the loading screens eventually ending up giving you irritating messages about how you've messed up and everything you've done wrong instead of gameplay tips.

Blizzard decided at the last minute to include licensed classic rock songs in the soundtrack, a rarity when the game was released. Of course at the time, these had to be remade in a chiptune style.
The track listings for the game are:
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
Henry Mancini - The Peter Gunn Theme
Deep Purple - Highway Star
Golden Earring - Radar Love (Genesis version only)
Steppenwolf - Born to Be Wild
George Thorogood - Bad to the Bone

Suikoden II
McDohl's name has a bizarre glitch when transferring data from Suikoden to Suikoden II. In canon, the hero's name in the first game is Tir McDohl, however the game only transfers the capital letters of the name across, so naming him Tir will result in his name being TcDohl in Suikoden II. In order for his name to be McDohl in the second name, you would have to name him something with only a capital M in the first game. If you name him something in full capitals, it will all be transferred across, for example, naming him TIR will result in his name being TIRohl.

Series: Suikoden
Throughout the first three installments, the characters are given a scene in which they must use a fake name. Schtolteheim Reinbach III is an option for a name in all of the games; Viktor uses it in Suikoden 1, the player can give the name to Flik in Suikoden II, and Chris can use it in Suikoden III.

Schtolteheim Reinbach III appears as a character in the fourth installment, which is a prequel to the other games, based around 150 years prior to the events of these games. This would suggest that his name is notable throughout history for some reason.

Suikoden II
There are many unique dialogue choices for the end of the game after defeating the Beast Rune. Some of these require special conditions to be met, such as having only a single character with you.

Jowy and Nanami can also be hacked into the party using code, which will reveal Jowy having glitched text, but Nanami will have understandable dialogue.

Series: Pokémon
There is an ongoing police investigation in Spain called "Operación Pokemon" (Operation Pokemon). It got its name from the almost endless amount of politicians that had committed fraud, so the police took the motto "Gotta catch 'em all!" from the Pokemon series.

Space Invaders
Even though Space Invaders used some of the latest hardware for the time, its creator, Tomohiro Nishikado, discovered that the processer wasn't powerful enough to run the game as intended (with the aliens moving at a constant speed), and instead rendered the alien graphics faster when fewer were on screen. Rather than design the game to compensate for the speed increase, he decided to keep it as a challenging gameplay mechanic.

Series: Donkey Kong
Shigeru Miyamoto has stated the name "Donkey Kong" came from him confusing the word "donkey" with the word "ass", thinking it meant something stupid. He assumed an American audience would think "Donkey Kong" meant "big stupid ape". Nintendo laugned when he suggested the name, but it ultimately stuck.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
The five main areas mirror the five stages of grief.

Clock Town is denial; its residents continue their daily lives refusing to believe the moon will fall.

Woodfall is anger; the Deku king is trying to kill a young monkey who allegedly kidnapped his daughter.

Snowhead is bargaining; Darmani begs Link to bring him back to life.

Great Bay is depression; Mikau dies trying to save the eggs of his love interest Lulu, leaving her alone.

Ikana Valley is acceptance; the only thing Link has left to conquer is himself, facing his own grief at the loss of his friend. The friend who began the journey, Navi.

Kid Icarus
The majority of Kid Icarus was developed during three months of intense work, where developers would stay up all night, and sleep in the office. They created make-shift beds using cardboard boxes and curtains, and would endure hours of winter cold in the unheated building.
