15 Easter Eggs in Video Game Movies
Video game Easter eggs are all the rage. It started back with Adventure, when a programmer hid his name in the game itself. (What was his name? Guess you'll have to go find the incredibly well-hidden easter egg of it in Adventure if you wanna find out. Or click like any of those links.) Since then, Easter eggs have become a common, if sometimes horrifying, tradition.
And movies have taken the Easter egg hiding game to heart, hiding everything from Mickey to porn in the background of their films -- often in the same one!
So when it comes to video game movies, Easter eggs are more than a possible element — they're all but a requirement. Some movies build their entire existence around Easter eggs, but for a video game movie, it’s just the same as having a character shout “game over,” be incredibly horrible, or change the first game's plot for absolutely no reason — it's a necessary part of the filmmaking process. Here are some Easter eggs you might've missed in some of your favorite (and/or worst) video game adaptations.
