Mass Effect
On the planet Noveria, when Commander Shepard enters the Hot Labs, the Russian scientist inside warns him of the Neutron Purge. Upon being asked for the codes, the scientist will be killed by a Rachni grunt. Should the player interract with the V.I without having obtained the codes from the scientist, an option will be available that has Shepard mumble something. Choosing this option causes Shepard to mumble "Sic semper tyranus...", a Latin phrase meaning "Thus always to tyrants." This phrase is a rally cry against those who abuse political power, and was spoken by Marcus Julius Brutus during his assassination of Julius Caesar, as well as John Wilkes Booth during his assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Just as there was a "Dee Ess Island" in Phantom Hourglass, Hyrule Historia reveals that there was a plan for a GameCube Island in Wind Waker which never made it into the game. The only reference to it is a piece of concept art, shown in the book.

The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Phantom Hourglass contains a an island called "Dee Ess Island" - an island in the shape of the DS Lite when shown from the sea and an original DS when shown from the island itself. This concept was almost carried forward into a GameCube Island for Wind Waker but was scrapped before making it into the final game.

Luigi's Mansion
On the file select screen, a message will appear and disappear that says, "Welcome to your mansion." However, the "y" in "your" fades away a split second before the rest of the message, so that it reads, "Welcome to our mansion." The copy and erase messages are also spooky: when choosing a file to copy, the message says, "More files means more fear." Selecting erase causes the message to alternate between "You can erase the files" and "but not the fear."

SoulCalibur V
Soul Calibur V is the first game in the series to do away with individual endings in the arcade mode, which means several playable characters amount to simply cameo appearances in the single Patroklos-focused story mode, and quite a few make absolutely no appearances at all in the story.

Halo 2
A Soccer Ball is found in the Halo 2 Campaign level Metropolis, hidden in the rooftops. There is speculation that it was used by Bungie to test the physics engine of the game, and that they left it in the level instead of deleting it. It also appears as a Forge item available to place on certain maps in Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4.

Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
In the "Snake vs. Monkey" mode, you play as Solid Snake (unlike the rest of the game) and during the radio call in the beginning, Snake suggests that Sam or Gabe could take the mission. This is a reference to Sam Fisher and Gabe Logan of Splinter Cell and Syphon Filter, respectively. Splinter Cell and Syphon Filter were Metal Gear's two biggest competitors during its release.

Sweet Home
Nobuko "Nokko" Yamada, who plays the youngest character, Emi, in the original Sweet Home movie was the lead singer in a band called Rebecca. What makes this interesting is that the game that was Sweet Home's eventual successor, Resident Evil, had its youngest character named Rebecca.

Resident Evil Gaiden
Resident Evil Gaiden was originally supposed to be canon and coincide with Resident Evil Code: Veronica but this plot point was later dropped in future titles. Gaiden was referenced in Wesker's Report, specifically mentioning Leon joining an anti-Umbrella organization. However, the end of Gaiden implies that the "Leon" you see is actually a Bio Organic Weapon impersonating Leon. Resident Evil 4 makes it clear that this is not the case though, and the game has since been stricken from the official series timeline, rendering Gaiden a fully non-canon entry in the series.

Mass Effect
While on planet Noveria, Captain Ventralis states his rule is "two legs good, four legs bad", a corruption of the phrase "four legs good, two legs bad" as stated by the sheeps in George Orwell's "Animal Farm". Ironically, the sheeps would later change this to "Four legs good, two legs better" by the novel's end.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
In the 3D version of Ocarina of Time, there are three hidden images in the game showing concept art of Link from Skyward Sword. These were likely included due to both games being developed around the same time.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
The three cities in San Andreas, Los Santos, San Fiero, and Las Venturas, represent the real life cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, respectively. All of the cities in San Andreas bear striking resemblance to their real-world counterparts (including rough street layout and district names) and contain numerous historic landmarks from each city. The name San Andreas itself is a reference to the San Andreas Fault, a continental fault line that runs through California.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
At the fishing hole, if you cast your line just right, you can catch the shop owner's hat, revealing a bald patch on his head.

Fable II
In addition to the loading screen that references "Your Health is Low," there is a potion shop in Fable 2 that is named "Your Health Is Low." To add to this, sometimes when you encounter a Gargoyle, they will say "Hero! Do you have any potions or food?" which is a sentence said by the guildmaster after saying "Your Health Is Low." Many of Fable's "Your Health Is Low" references are based on the over-all disdain towards being told this every time your health reaches a certain point in the original Fable.
