* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword'', early in the game, the bridge across the river is blocked by a group of women chatting about how they dislike housework. One of them comments on how she's bad at cleaning her house and wishes there was someone to do it for her. A while later -- after you find your Loftwing, race in the Wing Ceremony, fly with Zelda, wake up after she falls into the tornado, find Fi and get the Goddess Sword, you're finally able to go across the bridge, and if you go in her house, you'll find that it's ''[[ExtremelyDustyHome completely]]'' [[ExtremelyDustyHome covered in dust and spiderwebs]]. Much later in the game, you finally get an item that is able to blow the dust out, so you do actually clean the house for her.
** After she pays you for cleaning the house, if you come back later at night, you'll hear her son yelling at her for wasting the money he earned at his [[JustForPun knight job]] for her to buy food. He comes outside and talks to you, wondering aloud [[NiceJobBreakingItHero what kind of jerk would help his mother with her money-wasting endeavors.]] Not sarcastically; he really doesn't know it was you. Link, apparently, does not tell him.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', when you first meet Tulin in Rito Village, you can greet him with "good morning" or "good evening". Greeting him wrong (as in saying good morning when it's night out and vice versa) has him saying that's a weird way to greet someone. Talking to him again after clearing Vah Medoh has him greet Link as "the weird greeter guy."

** Play the DLC ''Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep'' and get hit by this brick: the main quest line involves saving a queen; however, most of the characters from the original game get folded into Tina's story before the queen is found. So who can the queen be? [[spoiler:In the beginning of the game, when the campaign is just beginning, Handsome Jack mocks the player, belittling their chances - and, over the course of the mockery, talking about how he's going to buy a pony literally made of diamonds; he decides to name it ''Butt Stallion'' in honor of the player. Many levels later, having battled through Dragon Keep, you'll finally meet your queen - Butt Stallion, the diamond pony.]]

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'': The third game in particular uses a ''lot'' of references to the first two for punchlines.

** In ''2'', Joker makes a crack about Garrus, who turned VigilanteMan between games, having "taken the stick out of his ass and started beating people with it." Come ''3'', you can run into him and Garrus trading jokes about each other's respective species, and that wisecrack is now the punchline to "How do you know a turian is out of ammo?"
--->'''Garrus:''' Come on, that one's as old as Shanxi.

** In ''Warlords of Draenor'', soon after passing through the Dark Portal, you encounter Kargath Bladefist, who traps you and your party in an arena and tasks you with killing one hundred of his minions. But you only kill 99 of them before Khadgar leads your party out into the next area. (Khadgar's response: "Then I guess we owe you one.") Ten levels later, in Highmaul, you enter another arena, and Kargath Bladefist is back (and he is angry that you cheated him out of a fight). Then when you defeat him, his last words are "One... hundred."

* In ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIWingsOfLiberty'', there's a news segment where the reporter informs people that Zerglings have a lemon juice allergy. Given the tone and the guy reporting it, it comes across as just another propaganda piece. Cue ''VideoGame/StarCraftIIHeartOfTheSwarm'' where Abathur makes an offhand comment about needing to fix the Zergling lemon juice allergy.

** One of the things mentioned by the Announcer is the fact that "All Aperture Science Personality Constructs will remain functional in apocalyptic, low-power environments of as few as 1.1 volts." This becomes important when [[spoiler:GLaDOS is transferred to a potato battery, which is determined to generate only 1.1 volts of electricity.]]

* In ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'', after meeting Cole, Marcus mentions that Dom still owes him 20 bucks from betting on a thrashball game that Cole played in. In ''Gears of War 3'', one of the very first collectibles is a $20 bill with an attached note from Dom apologizing for it being so late. Of course, without any kind of government left in the world, the money is worthless.
