... so I put a game in your game.
I thought of this as we discussed the lack of an 8-bit game in the arcade in Far Cry 5.
I have a thing with games where you can play old games in the game.
In Wolfenstein II you can play Wolfenstein 3D, but it's a different version of the classic where you don't kill nazis but terrorists instead. A comment on the game story through the game history.
In Yakuza O there's an arcade where you can play classics like Space Harrier, Outrun, Super Hangon and Fantasy Zone (I love Fantasy Zone!).
I find this a brillant way to pay homage to gaming history and a fun way to make a game emulation.
Which other games can you think of that have an old game built in?
And mods doesn't count, although I like stories like the one about someone who made a computer in the original Doom able to play Doom, so you could play Doom in Doom. A hall of mirrors.
