So I was playing .hack//Mutation yesterday, and when going to the News section on the desktop I noticed a little easter egg, there was an ad for CyberConnect's "Silent Bomber" on the PS1, and I found it a pretty nice easter egg since Silent Bomber isn't that well known (that I'm aware of) so it was fun seeing that.

So the question is, what are your favourite easter eggs in legacy games? Be them references to other games or any other kind of easter egg.

Was Thr Facility in Perfect Dark an Easter egg?

I found the man with the concret boots in one of the bridges while riding in a plane on the GTA Vice City game for the PS2.

The secret room in "Adventure" for the Atari 2600. The first, and still the best.

In BATTLE MANIA for the Mega Drive you can input a code with the second controller to see the main character stomping a super famicom.

Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

When on the the map screen you can press L and R to access Cranky's Video Game Heroes to see how many DK coins you have and the where your ranked. You see Mario, Yoshi, and Link in the placed 1st to 3rd along with a trash can in the lower-right hand corner with Sonic's shoes and Earthworm Jim's gun next to it coupled with a sign saying "No Hopers". It was pretty funny.

Metal Gear Solid 3

You find a model of Metal Gear REX and RAY from the last 2 MGS games along with Jehuty from Zone of the Enders inside Granin's office if you choose to go into FP view during the scene. (Couldn't find a picture of it for some reason :( )

Final Fantasy 12

Gilgamesh (villain from FF5) made an appearance in this game as an optional boss or hunt as the game called it, he also fought along side his partner Enkidu. Also a revision of his theme 'Battle on the Big Bridge' played during the two fights with him (first one takes place on a bridge fittingly). He carried around iconic swords of the series in each of his six hands as well.
