** ''SilentHill1'' ''VideoGame/SilentHill1'' - in the mall.



* Some ghosts make a staticky background noise like the monster-detecting radio in the SilentHill series. Great for knowing they're around and how close they are.
* ''SilentHill2'' - The transporting doors in the [=DeMontford=] Mansion are the same as the transporting doors in the decrepit Lake View Hotel in ''SilentHill2''.

* The cyborg form that Digital Richmond becomes following [[spoiler: Lazarus' death]] is a clear homage to the ''Franchise/RoboCop'' films - his chaingun and rocket-launcher are both based on Film/RoboCop2's weaponry and the mechanical noises of his legs and arms are all sampled from the films.

* The Cemetary area architecture, lighting and music are reminiscent of {{Ico}}.
** Hawksmoor's castle has structure and color like the Queen's castle in {{Ico}}.

* In the New School Theatre the poltergeists telekinetically raise chairs into the air and move them in geometric patterns. Psycho Mantis does the same thing in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMRD4YpDzTM&feature=related Here]] starting at 2:50.
* There's a low-res poster of a bikini-model in the Janitor's office of the old highschool, much like the low-res "EXCITE! 1998" bikini model poster in the final level of the original VideoGame/ResidentEvil.

** To be clear, in the Franchise/ResidentEvil games the Tyrants have claw/clubs for a right hand. The Swamp Phantom is completely missing his right forearm and hand.

* Hawksmoor grabs Anna Steele, Lazarus' partner, in the AbsurdlySpaciousSewer beneath the high school, then pulls her straight up & out of sight. This is like the ambush scene in {{Alien}}s where a soldier suffers a similar fate.
