OXM: nine ways developers deceive us

OXM UK: "Developers lie to us constantly. They've got no choice in the matter.

Corners are inevitably cut, ambitions down-sized, levels shrunk or blocked off, move-lists reined in, assets junked.

The art of making games accordingly becomes less a matter of creating stuff as disguising what you can't create - reconciling users to the limitations, or even turning those limitations into positives. It's rather elegant, really, but that doesn't mean we should let them get away with it. Here are a few common tricks of the trade."
