For example, did you notice how John Doe inputs one of the original release’s famous cheat codes? We didn’t! Or how about the copious references to maps and locations from the games? Some of these references are so minuscule that they didn’t even register on our radar during first viewing, but it’s clear that the team who worked on the show absolutely loves the games. It’s really quite incredible how well this series turned out.
We should stress if you haven’t seen the show yet but intend to watch it at some point, perhaps give this video a miss – it’s absolutely filled with spoilers. If you’ve finished it and are curious about its many Easter eggs, though, this is a really eye-opening video – we bet there’ll be some references you missed included here.
