Some developers are known to put other games as Easter eggs in their game. Playing a game inside another game? That’s some inception shit right there. Get ready for our top 5 games hidden in other games!
5. Plants vs Zombies in World of Warcraft
Blizzard Entertainment likes mobile developer Popcap so much that they put a version of Plants vs Zombies in World of Warcraft. You can play the popular tower defence game when you go to the Hillsbrad Foothills. And there are even Bejeweled and Peggle addons available to kill time inside the massive online game. How convenient!
4. Paddle War in Commander Keen 4
Back in the early nineties Commander Keen was where it was at. This awesome platformer was the PC’s answer to Super Mario Brothers. And it even had an extra game called Paddle War you could select from the main menu. It looked like a horizontal version of Pong you played on your watch. Apple Watch ain’t got shit on Commander Keen.
3. Dead Ops Arcade + Zork in Call of Duty Black Ops
When you booted up Call of Duty Black Ops you were probably mashing the start button to quickly get into a game. But did you know you could actually get up from the chair and use the CIA computer to play the text adventure Zork? And by typing DOA you unlock a cool twin stick shooter called Dead Ops Arcade. How’s that for cool easter eggs in a series that’s been accused of being predictable?!
2. Geometry Wars in Project Gotham Racing 2
When Bizarre Creations made the racing game Project Gotham Racing 2, they also added a small twin stick shooter called Geometry Wars. The game inside the game turned out to be SO popular, it spawned its own franchise. Geometry Wars has been one of the best selling Xbox Live Arcade titles in the early years of the Xbox 360 and the third game in the franchise has just been released!
1. Maniac Mansion in Day of the Tentacle
For the best game in a game feature, we like to refer to a classic. The Lucas Arts adventure game Day of the Tentacle allowed you to play Maniac Mansion on a computer resembling a Commodore 64. Yes, you could play the entire previous game, for free, within The Day of the Tentacle! Now that’s what we call putting a game inside a game. We can’t wait to see if it’s also in the remastered version that’s supposed to come out later this year.
