Games that make references to other games?

Have you played a game that made some kind of reference to another game? I just figured out about this Mario reference in Crack in Time.

Starts at about 1 minute.

I have no idea how I missed that the first 5 times I've played it.... Lol. I'm curious, has any other games done this?

Crash Twinsanity:

Cortex breaks the 4th wall and mentions how poor were the sales numbers of Crash Bandicoot: Wrath of Cortex.

There's one in Monkey Island were there's a reference to Myst, as well.
Law & Order: Criminal Intent

TLOU lots of reference to Jak & Daxster & Uncharted

Bulletstorm, the jammed door showing the RRoD light (reference to initial 360 unit)

Saints Row 4 has a lot (cardboard box, ME3 red/blue choice etc.)
Android phones + Vita = happy face

I always liked the Splinter Cell Chaos Theory reference to Metal Gear.

Or the reference in Metal Gear Solid 3's Snake vs Monkey mode involving Splinter Cell and Syphon Filter.

At 1:41 Snake mentions Sam and Gabe, a reference to the two protagonist of those series.

Edit: Does your own series count because that's basically what chunks of Final Fantasy IX are, references or throwbacks to previous games from Garland, to the shop referencing Cloud to the line, "No cloud, nor squall shall hinder us." It's freaking full of them as one giant love letter to the games prior.

Borderlands 1 plumber trophy. Mario.
You're the hero Gamefaqs deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

references to other games is pretty much one of the best parts of Neptunia. I've seen everything from Mario, Zelda, Tetris, Space Invaders, Resident Evil, Blazblue, etc.

Devil May Cry "fans" are worst fanbase in gaming.

It's my understanding that Guacamelee is full of such references (I have just barely started the game).
I am a nontheist, a nihilist. And I'm sure god loves me anyway.
