Games cameoing in other games

Post by RetroENZO » Thu Sep 06, 2007 3:19 pm

The thread about games/consoles appearing in films and tv series made me wonder if games/consoles have been mentioned in other games.

Not simply sequels or mini-games or spoofs (such as GTA, Driver, Getaway and True Crime all taking the censored out of each other) but examples like this:

Stuntman arcade machines appearing in Driv3r.
People carrying Microsoft XBoxes in Midtown Madness 3.
More XBoxes seen in Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball and Dead or Alive Xtreme 2.
An XBox 360 in Condemned.
The Sony Playstation 2 logo showing up on Prost Formula One cars in Formula One games of the era (including on the XBox and PC).

The Sega Saturn appearing in Shenmue. Although set in the mid 80s, makes you wonder if Sega had the Saturn in mind way before it was released. Or just a deliberate error to get everyone talking about it.

The Sega classics like Space Harrier and Hang On that appeared in Shenmue.

AHA, if we are doing favourites then I would have to go for the Pitfall level in Marvel Super Heroes, Captain America in a pitfall hell was genius

You consider Monkey Island 2 and Indy: Fate of Atlantis "late" LucasArts releases?

Anyway, in GTA: San Andreas, Driv3r is mocked for being buggy and unplayable - it's in one of the main missions.

What I meant was later than the Sam & Max game
