Videogame Cameos

"One of the Easter eggs I really like is the cameo appearance, when one game makes a reference to another. This is our listing of and tribute to cameos in gaming, for your entertainment, education, and information." (four pages)

"While most modern games stay fresh by offering level editors or expansion packs, the classics can get boring rather easily. Let's face it; it can get old playing the same Pac-Man maze over and over again, and who wouldn't want to see a new level added to Donkey Kong for a change? That's where hacking comes in."
