Unusual Easter eggs and references from developers who went too far and turned into a local meme or a real moral lesson for gamers. The best moments in games are when passing through makes you suffer.
Most often, game makers leave pleasant Easter eggs in their projects. For example, CD Projekt did this in Cyberpunk, adding references to Russian culture or Batman’s car. However, not all developers behave so humanely towards the players. Very often references and tricks from them quite painfuland some may even spoil the whole walkthrough… Share with you ten of the funniest, most unusualand sometimes instructive mockery of gamers over careless or overly curious gamers.
World of Warcraft: you sailed to the wrong area
In World of Warcraft, you can swim quite far, but everything has a limit. If the player tries to get to where he was not invited, then instantly a giant killer shark will attack. First, the character is pulled to the bottom, and then the fish swallows him whole.
This is an unusual way restrict the movement of the character, but for some reason in Warcraft it is only implemented in water. For sushi, no such Easter eggs were created.
Max Payne: rats are people too
In Max Payne, at one of the levels of the game, there was a wall with a large hole through which you could throw a grenade… However, this hole was located at the beginning of the passage, and it was possible to find explosives only at the end.
For players who hate rats that get in their way throughout the game, the developers have left an Easter egg here. Those who had the patience to go back to the hole and throw a grenade there, received the following message:
“I have declared war on the rats”
After this character rodents began to attack. However, they didn’t just bite him, the rats literally shot at the enemy with pistols… It is almost impossible to escape from such an attack.
The Witcher 3: Don’t Stuff, Geralt
In a series of books, Geralt was an incredibly “stuffy” character. In games, he was made more charming, however, even here he can be forced and pay dearly for it. During a meeting with the Hidden vampire. He is incredibly strong, moves faster than a human blinks, and even the Witcher cannot cope with it.
However, according to the plot, Geralt goes to him for help, and not for a battle. But if annoying the vampire too much in dialogue, he will lose his temper and attack. The witcher will die on the spot.
Beholder: evil old lady
The Beholder game has a huge number of Easter eggs, references and plot secrets, but the most mocking one is the old woman Margaret. Since during the passage you have to sacrifice a lot and even substitute some residents, put the old woman out the doorcatching her of something illegal will not seem too much evil.
However, Margaret has her own plans for this. If she finds out that the house manager is preparing a conspiracy against her, she will track him down in the corridor when no one is around, and will kill with one dexterous shot with a dart… After that, the old woman will laugh ominously.
The Witcher 2: don’t forget to roleplay
Even in RPGs, players often overlook the fact that they are playing the role of a character. Geralt is not just a stereotyped hero, he has his own character, and the Witcher would not be insolent to an enemy in a critical situation. However, gamers, feeling the story armor behind them, often neglect this. And in the second part hamam will have to pay for their behavior.
During the passage of the first chapter, the dwarf Zoltan escorts Geralt to Iorvet. On the way, they stumble upon a group of elven archers. If you start to cheat them, they both the Witcher and his friend will be instantly shot. So do not forget that even games have their own realism.

As a result, nothing special, except for the achievement, will happen, but the lines recorded for the narrator are simply masterpieces. He mocks Stanley so professionally that you want to listen to it forever.
Metal gear solid v
In Metal Gear Solid V, all player actions find their visual reflection in the guise of the protagonist. At the very beginning of the game, you can see small horn on the left side of the protagonist’s head. The more blood is shed in the process, the more that part of Snake’s body will grow.
