Video game Easter eggs are ten a penny in this day and age aren't they? It seems everywhere you look there's a reference to a pop culture feature that's immediately dated, or a film or game that served as a reference point for the one you're playing, and no matter the subject, one thing usually connects them all. And that is that the "nod" has to be something we'll all actually understand.
After all, what's the point of making a reference that only a handful of people, likely the devs, will actually register?
Well, these eight entries sit somewhere in between these two milestones, as they are Easter eggs that not everyone is going to "get" but truly reward the hardcore of fans in on the joke. These are moments that pay respect to the hours spent in previous titles, of knowledge of the developers themselves or even better, of real life moments that were truly impactful.
Don't be ashamed if you don't know some of these, because together we'll educate the masses on what true Easter eggs look like.
