The Best 9 Easter Eggs In Video Games

It's that time of year again where parents send their children off to look for hidden decorated Easter eggs, eggs that they've taken the time to boil and decorate and then hide, all for the pleasure of mashing two of them into each other to see which comes out as egg champion. Such a tradition seems so timeless and entertaining that game developers have actually taken to implementing their own idea of Easter eggs into their games, be it a giant rat scurrying down the streets of Manhattan or a lonely conscript misusing one of Gandalf's most famous lines.

Easter eggs, much like achievements and trophies, give us gamers a reason to replay an entire game , and since it's Easter right now, why not take the time to list down some of the best Easter eggs we've seen in our history of gaming? (Assassin's Creed 2, Crysis 2, Dead Island Riptide, Dev, Dishonored, Metal Gear : Solid Snake, PS2, PS3, PS4, Sanctum 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Mario Auditore's name being Mario is an Easter egg?

Who knew? Its not like there are millions of Italians named Mario or anything.

it's not the Easter egg.... The way he says "It's A-Me Mario!" is the Easter egg.. That would've been pretty obvious if you read well enough or if you've played any Mario game :|

Yeah, it's pretty clear they are referencing the Mario franchise.

I got a good kick out of it myself.

The Easter egg article is pretty clever, given what today it. I like it.
