Counter-Strike 1.6 - DOOR STUCK! DOOR STUCK!:

Pizza Tower - "Peppino's Sauce Machine":

Mr. Sauceman - "Peppino's Door Problem":
Attachment On March 17, 2019, in response to a post on the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account celebrating St. Patrick's Day, YouTuber Jacksepticeye jokingly asked if he could voice "Irish the Hedgehog", to which the Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account responded:


(We just need to create him first.)"

A year later, they made good on this promise, releasing a video titled "Irish the Hedgehog" on the official Sonic the Hedgehog Youtube channel. According to Sega, the character was designed by artist Mark Hughes, and the video included a "folksy" remix of the song "Escape from the City" from Sonic Adventure 2 made by Hyper Potions and Jun Senoue.

A few years afterwards, Jacksepticeye would return to the Sonic franchise to voice another character: the appropriately-named Jack from the "Sonic Prime" episode "It Takes One to No Place".

Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
Attachment In the ending of the PC version of Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Count Olaf police mugshots are 3D squares that the camera zooms into. If you change the camera to look at the sides of these mugshots, you can see an anthropomorphic turtle holding a trophy with the caption "CONGRATULATIONS! A WINNER IS YOU!" (a reference to Pro Wrestling for NES).
Yakuza 4
Through out the Yakuza series, the character of Goro Majima speaks with a Kansai accent, a Japanese accent associated with the Kansai region where Osaka is located. This accent is also stereotyped as being associated with criminals or gangsters. There are multiple instances where Goro Majima seemingly slips back into speaking in a Kanto accent, more associated with Tokyo and without this connotation, and this is even commented on by other characters, (with one notable instance being in Yakuza 4 where his sworn brother Taiga Saejima who speaks in a more natural Kansai accent informs him his accent is slipping) suggesting he puts up the accent to make himself seem tougher or more serious.

The Garib collectibles in Glover originated as an in-joke, according to designer Rich Albon:

"The studio was doing a port for a Japanese company at around the time of Glover and they got a faxed bug report (yes, a faxed bug report!) which had one item that read, There is a problem with the Garib.' No one knew what a Garib was - there was no reference to it in the in game or in the code. So it kind of became an office meme: anything without a name became a Garib."
Also Appears On: Blitz Games Studios (Company)

"The Making of Glover" article from Retro Gamer (UK) No. 234, June 2022. Can be found on multiple legitimate subscription sites, such as Everand:
Watch Dogs 2
Attachment The Utah Teapot, a 3D graphics in-joke, can be found in the data of Watch Dogs 2 as an unused vehicle.
Offroad Thunder
Attachment Offroad Thunder has some humorous unused graphics, such as a "Winners don't use drugs" parody that says "Most winners don't use drugs", a satirical tip screen that says "use the steering wheel to steer!", someone's hand grasping a rubber chicken, and an image of a monkey with the caption "Look at the Funny[sic], DISTRACTING Monkey!!"
Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway
One of the challenges in Nickelodeon Kart Racers 3: Slime Speedway is called "that's a good hook!" and allows the player to unlock Dr. Paula Hutchinson as a crew member. Unlike other challenge titles which reference catchphrases and episode titles, this references a well-known behind-the-scenes story from the production of Rocko's Modern Life, where a request from a Nickelodeon executive for the series to feature a strong female role model with a "good hook" lead to the conception of Hutchinson and her signature hook hand.

"That's a good hook!" challenge:

Origin of Hutchinson's hook in Joe Murray's book "Creating Animated Cartoons With Character" (Page 85; official upload of the book):
Franchise: Mario
In the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation, the new CEO of Nintendo of America, Doug Bowser, was introduced with a joke comparing his last name to the antagonist of the Mario series, Bowser. However, in Japanese, the character’s name is “Koopa”, so in the Japanese broadcast of the Nintendo Direct, they clarified the joke with subtitles explaining that his name is Bowser in English-language releases.
Also Appears On: Nintendo (Company)
Pizza Tower
Attachment During development of Pizza Tower, multiple demo builds were released - among these was a build known as the "Peter Griffin Experience", built off of the 2018 "early test build". This demo replaced every single sprite of Peppino with a highly compressed edit of a stock image of Peter Griffin from Family Guy made to resemble Peppino, and replaced one of the game's musical tracks with a fan-made Family Guy remix.

After this build, the Peter Griffin "arms resting" pose would appear in some builds as a taunt, albeit as an actual sprite and not an edit, and a video would be posted by developer McPig showcasing the taunt, accompanied by the first note of the Family Guy theme song, under the name "family", likely referencing a a meme video that plays the first note and ends. This taunt was removed for unknown reasons in the final game.

Bio Force Ape
Attachment Bio Force Ape is a game that was never released - it did, before it's cancellation, get a spotlight in Nintendo Power, creating a level of curiosity surrounding it within NES fan communities. Capitalizing off of this curiosity, a post would be made on the Digital Press forum in 2005 claiming to show screenshots of a leaked prototype. While the first post appeared legitimate, the hoax would eventually be unraveled starting with a screenshot of a glitched super move that was "so powerful [that] it messes up the game's graphics", which humorously made it appear that Bio Force Ape was unleashing a powerful fart attack, as a set of glitched graphics appeared next to a crouching animation. The poster, going under the username PaulB812, would refuse to dump the game and refer to anybody who asked for it to be released as either "communists" or "butter-slathered... hoarding fatties", before finally unveiling the prank with a game screenshot of a cutscene where a fat butter monster points out that the ape is "worth 2K monies[sic]", before the ape punches him while saying "EAT COMMUNISM!" A real prototype would be leaked in 2010.

Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth
The character Andre Richardson from Yakuza 3 is notorious for speaking in poor English despite him being American, with one line especially where he says:

"If you're looking for Daigo, Mine's taken him up to the roof."

In saying the line, "roof" is pronounced more as "ruff". This meme was referenced with his return in Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth, where in the English dub, after Ichiban spends a night at the bar he runs, he says the line:

"If you ever need a roof over your head-"

And during this line he says the word roof in a similar matter.

Defender 2000
Attachment If you enter OVINE as your name on Defender 2000's high score table, you will temporarily unlock "Flossy Mode", which features Jeff Minter's signature ruminants - specifically, the humans are replaced with pixel art llamas, while the ship is replaced with a photo of Minter's first pet sheep, Flossy.

Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon
Attachment There are four unused voice clips intended for the Newscaster on Putt Putt's radio that appears to be a developer in-joke. When put together they read:

"A criminal suit was filed against Mr. Firebird. He is accused of purposeful wrong-doing and criminal neglect. It is believed that Mr. Firebird's negligence caused Putt-Putt's unfortunate accident earlier today."
Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa
Attachment In four separate 1989 issues of Video Games & Computer Entertainment, the mail-in game order service Play It Again put up an advertisement featuring a list of games customers could order. Among these is a mysterious title, Yeah Yeah Beebiss 1, which is not the name of any one game - this title would reappear in a separate advert for FuncoLand, under the name "Yeah Beebiss 1". To add further mystery to this game, it was placed between W and X games alphabetically instead of with Y games. There are multiple theories on the status of Beebiss:

•Some believe that Beebiss is a baby-themed game like Baby Boomer, Rai Rai Kyonshis: Baby Kyonshi no Amida Daibouken, or Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa, given that "baby" sounds like "Beebiss" - with Rai Rai Kyonshis being considered the most likely candidate of the 3 for "Rai Rai"'s (A Japanese onomatopoeia associated with China) similarity to "Yeah Yeah", the game's release in 1989, and the presence of other import games on the listing. Rai Rai Kyonshis is generally the most accepted identity of the game.
•One theory proposes that the game was made as a copyright trap to catch which retailers are stealing game lists, something one of the founders of Play It Again confessed to doing, albeit without confirming if Beebiss was among those games.
•A rather strange theory proposes that the game was somehow related to exploring, possibly being Atlantis no Nazo's cancelled US release Super Pitfall II, named for Charles William Beebe, a famous explorer and naturalist
•Another theory suggests that the title was simply a bizarre, elaborate in-joke that both Play It Again and FuncoLand employees were in on.

The myth of Beebiss would inspire the game Yeah Yeah Beebiss II, developed by popular retro gaming YouTuber John Riggs and based on the aesthetic of Rai Rai Kyonshis.
Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
Attachment As a reward for contributing a $100+ donation to the game's Kickstarter campaign, backers could choose to join a clan of their choice to appear under in the game's credits. Six "Sword or Whip" Clans (connected to a vote on if Miriam's personal weapon should be a sword or a whip) were dedicated to voting on which Sword or Whip weapon would become the most powerful weapon in the game (the winner being Clan Katana with the Grand Izayoi sword), while the remaining eighteen clans were Community or YouTube Partner Clans, who would receive a code for a clan-specific item.

The Community Clans were represented by two Castlevania fan communities: the Dungeon clan (The Castlevania Dungeon forums), and the Operation Akumajo clan (a Castlevania Facebook group spun off from The Castlevania Dungeon dedicated to promoting the series following its 25th anniversary in 2011). The YouTubers and other companies who participated in the last clan group were associated with Fangamer, a video game merchandising company who managed the Kickstarter campaign for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. To unlock one of the Community/YouTube Partner Clan items, you must enter its respective code as the name for your save file, and as such only one clan item can be unlocked per save file. The participating clans and their codes include:

Community Clans:
•The Castlevania Dungeon: DUNGEONITE - unlocks the Dungeonite sword
•Operation Akumajo: Akuma - unlocks the Dominus sword

YouTube Partner Clans:
•ProtonJon: EGGFARM - unlocks the Guardian Egg Helm (a reference to a line spoken by Albert Wesker in Resident Evil 5)

•StephenPlays: STEPHENPLAYS - unlocks the Sicilian Slicer (a pizza-themed sword, Pizza both being the name of his dog and a recurring subject of vlogs)
•SwimmingBird941: swimmingbird - unlocks the Plague Doctor Face (possibly a reference to the anime "Cowboy Bebop", as series protagonist Spike Spiegel is referred to as "Swimming Bird" by a Native American medicine man named Laughing Bull)
•Far From Subtle: AWESOMEVIDEOGAMES - unlocks the Big Mustache (an in-joke from their series VideoGames AWESOME!)
•The Speed Gamers: TheSpeedGamers - unlocks the Final Hour sword (a speedrunning-themed sword)
•Egoraptor: Egoraptor - unlocks Hey I'm Grump (a helmet of Arin Hanson's stylized head from Game Grumps' intro)

•AlphaOmegaSin: ALPHAOMEGASIN - unlocks the Darkness Descends sword (possibly a reference to the studio album of the same name by American thrash metal band Dark Angel, which AlphaOmegaSin has described as "one of my go-to albums")
•Game Sack: 8MEGAPOWER - unlocks the Game Sack Strip sword (a reference to an in-joke regarding various novelty power strips)
•Vinesauce: SPONGYVINE - unlocks the Vine Sword (a sword themed around Vinesauce game glitch/corruption content with a green mushroom [Vinesauce's logo, the "Vineshroom"] as the sword's helm). The name of the code is derived from Sponge, a character from the streams who is depicted as the depressed third Mario brother.

Drawn to Life
In the Easter egg "Developer's Grove" area that is unlocked upon donating 10,000 Rapo-Coins to the Wishing Well, one of the developers will inform the player that there is a "secret flower" hidden in the game that can bring the Mayor, who dies in the final world, back from the dead - while another developer tells the player that the other developer is lying. There is no secret flower.

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
In Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, during Part III: Chapter Three: A Mob War, you can find a hidden dialogue between two Punchinello mobsters while they stand guard by a staircase waiting for intruders:

Vegas: "What about moving?"

Unnamed Punchinello mobster: "What about it? Put one foot in front of the other."

Vegas: "No, I mean, what about you moving out, leaving her?"

Unnamed Punchinello mobster: "That's the trouble, you can't choose who you go crazy about."

Vegas: "True, but what you can choose is what you do about it, you know? Kiss them or kill them."

Unnamed Punchinello mobster: "Yeah, I guess you're right. Hey, thanks, Vegas."

Vegas: "Hey, don't get soft on me. You stay here, I'm gonna check upstairs."

Unnamed Punchinello mobster: "Okay. Hey, but Vegas, I really mean it, thanks."

Vegas: "Forget about it already."

This line is a reference to an old meme from the 3D Realms forums. The exact origins of this meme are not entirely known, but in a developer Q&A that occurred at an unknown date (either for the first Max Payne game, or in the lead-up to Max Payne 2's announcement at E3 2002 going off of what could be easily found in 3D Realms' forum archives), one fan asked them "What about moving?", a seemingly vague and unnecessary question. This question perplexed the game's fan community and developers, who promised that moving would appear in the final game, and it did. The question subsequently became an early popular meme on the forums, later being referenced in Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. In a thread on October 8th, six days prior to the game's release, in anticipation for another developer Q&A, the line as it appears in the game appeared to be referenced in a post presumably by a Remedy Entertainment staff member or moderator, who quoted the first two lines in the dialogue.
