Every so often we come across games that decide to cut lose and have a little bit of fun, and do so at the expense of their peers. These can be fun easter eggs poking fun at other games, games slyly mocking other titles, or even openly ridiculing them. Sometimes they’re somewhat subtle, other times, not so much. In this feature, we’ll be taking a look at fifteen of our favourite moments where games poked fun at other games.

SPLINTER CELL: CHAOS THEORY

Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid are the old guard of stealth games in our industry (both are, sadly, off on a break for now), and both these franchises are well aware of that fact. For instance, Metal Gear Solid 2 allowed players to hold enemies at gunpoint, at which point they’d goofily shake their bodies and drop some ammo. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory poked fun at this mechanics, with Sam holding a guard in his grips in one scene and demanding ammo, to which the guard glibly tells him that it’s not like he can just make him shake and drop some ammo.
