In the original Halo Cortana was originally suppose to be the “bad guy”.
“One of the original antagonists for the game was going to be Cortana herself. She was planned to go mad with power after being downloaded into Halo’s control room, which is why in the scene where she’s downloaded into the main control system she starts acting strangely. However, the developers decided against having Cortana betray the Chief and instead made 343 Guilty Spark the antagonist. However, the scene where Cortana is downloaded into the control room remained unchanged, and made a lot of players believe she would go crazy, although it never happened.”
Cacildo´s Note: Never played Halo, so i dont know if this is a big deal or not. Either way, i posted it full.

I was surprised Duke Nukem 1 & 2 on the PC ripped Turrican graphics from the Amiga (and a bit from Savage).

Something i read on a interview with one of the Deus Ex designers.
When you are in liberty city, you can see new york in the background, but you cant see the world trade center towers . People complained to the devs about it, and their response was :
When people complained, we just explained that it had been destroyed by terrorist attacks. We start the game with the Liberty Island statue having been destroyed by terrorists a few years before. We just said that the towers had been destroyed too. And this was way before 9-11. Years. That’s kind of freaky.
Deus Ex was released about 1 year before the real attacks.
Cacildo´s Note: Theres more comics/movies/games/ tv shows that “predicted” 9/11, right? I think i read about some others, but cant remember exactly…

Gordon Freeman’s original design.
His name was also somewhat different.
Gordon was originally called “Ivan the spacebiker”.

In the Ice Station level from the Carmageddon Splat Pack expansion there are men frozen in blocks of ice dotted around the level, and these guys are the player model ‘Ranger’ from Quake;
Also, the first level you play on the map is called ‘Icing on the Quake’.
