Not exactly mind blowing, but Shadowrun for the Genesis had a few Easter Eggs in the form of clients that hired you for runs.
-One was named Alan Turing, which is the name of the man many feel is the father of modern computer science, and for whom the “Turing Test” was named.
-One was named Billy Gibson, short for “William Gibson,” author of Neuromancer, the novel which was to Cyberpunk what LotR was to fantasy.
-One was named Nero Manser, an obvious reference to the aforementioned novel.
