The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
In the first dungeon, you come across a red-capped mushroom enemy that walks around spraying spores. The enemy is named "Puffstool", and is actually a reference to an enemy found in Pikmin also named "Puffstool" who sprays spores to infect Pikmin and turn them against you.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
In the German version, the Snow World is called "Großfrostheim" which translates into "Great Frost Home". This, however, is a reference to the German city "Großostheim", which is where the Nintendo of Europe headquarters are located, and where the game was localized.

Sonic Adventure 2
In the City Escape stage, there's a hidden message in one of the posters. "Anti XXXX XX2 Association". Since there is a 2 at the end of the XX, and the number of letters matches up, it was thought to stand for "Anti Sony PS2 Association". At the time, the Dreamcast was being dominated by the Playstation 2 in sales.
The text was removed from later versions of the game.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
In Vilemyr Inn, Ivarstead, you'll find a woman by the name of Temba Wide-Arm. Her name is a subtle reference to the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode 'Darkmok', in which Picard and his crew encounter a race of aliens called the 'Tamaraians'. At one point, Picard is stuck on a planet's surface. He attempts to make a fire, but fails. A Tamarian named Dathon takes a branch from his own fire and throws it to Picard, saying "Temba, his arms wide", to make it clear the fire was a gift.

The Sims 3
There is a reference to the Mass Effect series in the ambitions expansion. When using the time machine to travel to the future, your Sim appears in a crowd of people cheering about how a shepherd saved the galaxy from a 'huge ancient machine God threat.' Additionally, the futuristic outfits that can be obtained from the future highly resemble the Spectre armor found in Mass Effect.

Fallout: New Vegas
During the opening, you are shown inkblots in order to test your mental health. Fans thought that one of the inkblots looked like two bears high-fiving, but this was not an option in the game. A fan decided to make a mod for the game which made 'Two Bears High-Fiving' an option. Obsidian referenced the fan reaction and the mod by putting a character called 'Two-Bears-High-Fiving' in the game's Honest Hearts DLC.

Trouble Shooter
In the Japanese version of Trouble Shooter (known as Battle Mania), if you hold the C button on controller two while the game starts up, it displays the game's protagnosit stomping curiously on a Super Famicom (The Japanese Super Nintendo). Apparently the developers were Sega fans, and were annoyed when funding for their game was moved to Nintendo projects. They decided to get their own back by hiding this screen in the game.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
The "Solar Gun" can be obtained by getting all Boss Dolls after defeating the FROGS and BB Beast forms without using lethal weapons. The gun is a direct reference to the Kojima game Lunar Knights, a part of the Boktai series.

The gun itself is based on Aaron's "Knight" model, and requires the user to charge shots using sunlight, as you would in all Boktai games.
