Can You Spot All The Gaming References In Today’s Expansive XKCD Comic?

Today’s xkcd comic is… huge. Enormous. Seriously, the thing goes on for pages. It must have taken creator Randall Munroe forever to draw it all out.

But hidden in the huge map of the world as he sees it are a bunch of gaming references, like Mario up top. Or Oregon Trail below, which brings me back. Pokémon was probably a must. And I insist there’s some, at least tiny BioShock reference in the pirate ship.

Hit the comic to explore on your own, or check out this awesome map version where you can zoom in and out. Let us know what hidden references you find!
