Easter Scratchy Sale And Some Cool Easter Eggs
Indeed. We figured that the best (and frankly most fun) way of honoring the gaming community this Easter is with the Easter Eggs. Hey, almost every game has them. And they’re always fun to spot in a video game. Granted, movies have them too. But for now, we’re gonna focus on the games portion of this article. So, with that in mind… Let’s start, shall we? Which games have the best Easter Eggs? Well, we’ve selected our favorite five of them.
So, if the term “Easter egg” makes you think of hunting down hidden jokes, details, and stories in video games (and not actual eggs)… This one is for you. Enjoy.
The Real Characters In The Assassin’s Creed Series
Here’s a cool fact. Or rather a cool Easter Egg kind of a cool fact about this entire series. Every named character you kill throughout the Assassin’s Creed series is a real person. Yes. Every single named non-player character the assassin protagonist kills in the game is a real historical figure. The location and the date of the kill are the same as the real location and the death of their actual death. Granted, none of them were killed by a covert assassin dressed in hoodies. But still… It’s a fun Easter Egg in the game series nonetheless.
Oh, and if you’re interested in the Assassin’s Creed game series, then check out our offerings here at IndieGala. You won’t be sorry.
The Chocolate Easter Egg in GTA: Vice City
Who knew that you’ll be able to find a literal chocolate Easter egg as an Easter egg. And in one of the most beloved games of all time? Well, it’s so meta and we love it enough to add it to our list. In Downtown Vice City near the Vice City News building, there is a window on a building where you can jump through. And in that room, you will find the “Easter Egg Easter Eggsoom” which is a brown Easter egg on top of a pedestal. It says Happy Easter on it, and yes. It’s a hilarious Easter egg.
Potato Jesus in Hitman 3
You can find a painting of Potato Jesus in the third mission, called “Apex Predator, and yes. It’s a fun Easter egg from the game series. It’s set in a former power plant that’s been converted into an underground rave club, but most call it the Second Coming Of Jesus. You can easily find Potato Jesus in the previous Hitman game. Indeed. In the Sapienza level of Hitman 2, there’s a striking painting hanging on the wall. Check it out. And feel free to check out the Hitman series here at IndieGala. You’re gonna love our offerings.
John Romero’s Appearance In Doom
Here’s a nice and interesting Easter egg. And one that involves the creator of the game. It’s in the final moments of Doom, and after you shoot the last boss’s head you’ll enter a room. And in that room, you’ll be able to find the head of John Romero. The creator of the Doom series of course. He’ll say, backward, “To win the game, you must kill me, John Romero.” And yes. You should do that. Shoot him a bunch of times and you indeed win the game.
Doom is available for purchase here at IndieGala. Check it out.
Castlevania in Metal Gear Solid
This particular Easter egg breaks the fourth wall in an interesting and slightly creepy way. When you confront the psychic villain Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid, the villain taunts you. How? By claiming he can read your (or rather Snake’s) mind. So, not only would Mantis comment on how often you’ve saved their game, but he would also reference the saved data of other games found on the memory card. And it asks a simple yet scary question. “You like Castlevania, don’t you?” The fans of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night have never been the same since.
You can find Castlevania and the MGS franchise here at IndieGala. Check them out here and here.
