** ''Metal Gear Raiden: Snake Eraser'' is an animated short from ''VideoGame/{{Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}: Subsistence'' centers around Raiden trying to regain the role of protagonist for ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4'' after losing it to Solid Snake [[HostileShowTakeover by going back in time to kill Big Boss in order to prevent Snake from existing.]] At the end, he fails miserably and Rose tries to console him by saying, "there's going to be a ''5'', right?" Eventually, Raiden got to star in another Metal Gear, not in ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain MGS5]]'', but in his own spinoff game: ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''. And then ''Ground Zeroes'' added an unlockable bonus mission, "Jamais Vu", that allows you to play as Raiden, though since it's a [[AlternateUniverse non-canon scenario]], it's not quite the same as ''starring'' in the game.
** In 1990, Konami released an unofficial sequel (i.e. produced without Creator/HideoKojima's involvement) to ''VideoGame/MetalGear'' titled ''VideoGame/SnakesRevenge'' for the NES. The title of the game was pretty nonsensical, as it was really about Big Boss (the antagonist) seeking revenge on Solid Snake for foiling his plot in the original game. But then along comes ''[=MGS3=]'', a prequel set during the Cold War, which reveals that not only is Solid Snake a clone of Big Boss, but that Big Boss himself used to be called Snake in the past. And now we have ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', which centers around Snake (Big Boss) going on a quest for revenge after receiving a cyborg arm.

** In ''MetalGearSolid,'' Otacon famously asks Snake if [[MemeticMutation love can bloom on a battlefield]]. In ''MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'', [[spoiler: Venom Snake and Quiet eventually fall in love with each other if you get their bond high enough]]. Could also be considered an AscendedMeme.

* A tombstone in the English translation of the original NES version of the original ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy|I}}'' reads "Here lies Erdrick" (though it said "Here lies Link" in the Japanese version) poking fun at the then-rival ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' series, referring to the legendary hero in the first three games. Several years later, ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' publisher Square merged with ''VideoGame/DragonQuest'' publisher Enix, resulting in the two series being published by [[Creator/SquareEnix the same company]]. Incidentally, later translations of the game directly translated the engraving on the tombstone, having it read "Here lies Link" as in the Japanese version, losing the joke present in the original translation (although the UsefulNotes/PlayStation version says 'Erdrick').
** Even the name ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' counts, since Square (facing possible bankruptcy) decided that its "final" game would be a "fantasy" {{Role Playing Game}}. And now the series [[CashCowFranchise won't end]].

However, upon playing it, she believes it is evil because [[JustOneMoreLevel it makes people play it for hours upon hours]]. ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'' would be ported onto the PSP a few years later.

FFTA came out in the States mid/late 2003, long before the infamous hunting accident involving Dick Cheney and Harry Whittington. Similarly, one of the Missions is requested by one "Cheney, Hunter".

* In one level of ''MaxPayne2'', Max is assisted by a fat, balding, bearded old hobo who claims to be an ex-cop. In 2009, teaser images of ''MaxPayne3'' showed the title character as fat, balding, bearded, and he is no longer a cop.

** The story of Primeus. In the game engine {{MUGEN}}, there was a JokeCharacter named Primeus. The intro to the character would be of Touhou's Yukari Yakumo walking into the screen...and then a [[GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere Giant Fish From Nowhere]] suddenly knocks her out from behind. Though this was funny in itself, it became even funnier when a giant fish ''did'' appear in a canon Touhou fighting game.

* Yet another Let's Play example: Cooked Auto's LP of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'', during the "Delta Halo" level, has him discussing the SPARTAN-III project. He expresses interest in a game focused on them, but then notes that this would be almost impossible without courting a ton of controversy, because of the fact that most of the SPARTAN-III's are ChildSoldiers, and [[WeHaveReserves highly-expendable ones]] at that. Cue ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' a year and a half later, where [[spoiler:every SPARTAN-III you meet is dead by the end of the game]].

** The DLC's for game 2 cause an amusing moment because, if you play them after completing the main storyline, you are being helped by the Illusive Man after, depending on your choices during the game, you've [[spoiler: essentially ''stolen'' the ''Normandy 2'', caused the defection of a large chunk of Cerberus personnel including one of his top lieutenants to you, and blew up the Collector base he desperately wanted.]] He's obviously not one to hold a grudge.

** Each of the three background options for Commander Shepard has an associated [[SideQuest assignment]] in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1''. The Earthborn assignment involves Finch, a member of a gang Shepard used to run with, trying to {{b|ullyingADragon}}lackmail him/her into getting another member of the gang released from turian custody. If you choose to warn the guard about the gang, and then choose the right conversation options with Finch- for example, not just shooting him- he calls Shepard out for being "in bed" with the turians. For extra potential hilarity, Garrus (the turian squad member) can be brought along for the assignment. Guess which [[BoldlyComing non-human squad member]] gets [[RelationshipUpgrade upgraded to a potential love interest]] in the [[VideoGame/MassEffect2 second game?]]
** Back in ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', when Ashley asks Shepard which side of the cheek to kiss a turian, if Shepard told her that wouldn't be necessary, Ashley will then jokingly reply "You never know, Commander." Cue the RelationshipUpgrade with Garrus in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'', and TheBigDamnKiss in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' if Shepard chooses to continue the relationship with Garrus (for the record, it's the ''right'' cheek Ashley).
** One for ''Franchise/MassEffect'' and ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic''. Carth and Kaidan often acted as the "voice of conscience" in the party, arguing for light-side / Paragon actions. Now, their mutual voice actor is playing in Series/OnceUponATime...as one of the ultimate "voices of conscience," Jiminy Cricket!

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecFA5IYiF0Q This fan song about Duke Nukem Forever]], written in 2000 but released in 2007, contains the verse "Duke Nukem or Max Payne, no wonder who's last", originally referring to how much more likely it was to see ''Max Payne 1'' released than ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever''. In 2011, when the release date of ''Duke Nukem Forever'' had been announced and ''Max Payne 3'' had been delayed again, the same verse acquired a whole new meaning.

Then, exactly a decade later, ''VideoGame/ShadowrunReturns'' comes out, featuring Seattle as its main setting and Chicago being ravaged by [[spoiler: insectoid spirits from a dark occult-like ritual perpetrated by a seemingly innocuous Happyology-esque organization]].
