* In the [=PC=] version of ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'', the character Rust has a line when answering pagers where he asks the [[FanNickname Pager Guy]] if he's seen the {{Film/Hellboy}} films, and state that they should make a third film. Rust is voiced by {{Creator/RonPerlman}}, who played the titular Hellboy in said films.

* Creator/MarkHamill was specifically chosen to play the mentor to the main characters of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep'', just as Obi Wan was...uh, [[TropeNamer The Obi Wan]] to his other character, [[StarWars Luke Skywalker]]. The student becomes the master...

* In the danger tools tutorial in ''VideoGame/LittleBigPlanet'', [[Creator/StephenFry the Narator]] says that an unlethalised object is "Literature/MostlyHarmless", and remember [[Film/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy what else he narrated...]]
** In the bonus UsefulNotes/PlaystationNetwork tutorial, he says that he once made a rather fine TV series about America. He did, in fact, it's called ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Stephen Fry in America]]'' (this is more of a RealLife allusion, though).

* ''VideoGame/Halo3ODST'' is based around this trope: out of the six main characters, three of them are former ''Series/{{Firefly}}'' alumni, and Bungie refused to let gamers forget it. The most notable is Gunnery Sergeant Eddie Buck, played by Creator/NathanFillion. Not only is his personality a carbon copy of Mal's, Buck's face was also [[InkSuitActor modelled after Fillion's]]. Creator/TriciaHelfer is also onboard as ONI Captain Veronica Dare--Buck's ex-girlfriend. Helfer is Fillion's ex-girlfriend in real life too. [[TropesAreNotBad It's still an excellent game.]]
** In fact, the Firefly cast had previously been in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' as unnamed infantry (at the end of one Halo 3 mission, a marine voiced by Fillon will say: "Looks like we got here in the nick of time! [[BigDamnHeroes What does that make us?]]). So it's kind of a loop-de-loop of references, but Bungie certainly took advantage and gave us all a reason to care about ODST in the fist place.
** There's also the Machinima/RedVsBlue actor cameos in the Crow's Nest level of Halo 3 (the "Password-Lacking Marine"). In all cases, they're more or less in character for Red vs. Blue.

* One [[FunnyAneurysmMoment unfortunate]] ActorAllusion is possible in the game ''All-Pro Football 2K8.'' It is possible to assign O.J. Simpson to a team called "The Assassins," where the game randomly has him do a throat-slash taunt and a large stadium robot make stabbing motions when he scores a touchdown. Oops.

** ''VideoGame/LEGOStarWars: The Complete Saga'' features [[spoiler:Franchise/IndianaJones]] as an unlockable character. Harrison Ford appeared in both franchises. (It's also [[EarlyBirdCameo a promotion]] for [[spoiler:''VideoGame/LEGOIndianaJones'']], as he's only unlocked after watching the trailer for it in the HubLevel.)
** [[spoiler:''VideoGame/LEGOIndianaJones'']] has this in reverse, with [[spoiler:Han Solo]] unlockable.
** Also, the version of The Joker in ''VideoGame/LEGOBatman'' seems to be based on the version voiced by Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill on WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries.
