Show me things in games that are just grabbed from real life

Ok so I guess the thread doesn‘t exist, so let’s make it! How do I explain this? You know when you‘re playing a game and you’re like “wait, that movie poster/character/whatever is just straight up lifted from an existing thing”?

Look, I have an example. I was playing the translation of the ps1 Shin Megami Tensei, and you go to this building, where the general is giving a speech on a big TV. As it pans up, you briefly see this movie poster... [URL=https://i.imgur.com/Niv9153.jpg][IMG]https://i.imgur.com/Niv9153.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

I squinted and I was like... I must be crazy. It can't be....

Then I googled the Japanese movie poster, and yes, sure enough:

This is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. They just took a real movie poster and put it in the game! Surely there are way more of these! Songs (lookin at you earthbound), posters, whatever, just grabbed and used as game assets. Show me some good ones!

This is a less good example but I loved it anyway. More of an homage I guess. Digimon cyber sleuth for Ps vita has a record store in Shinjuku aaaaaand it's basically just tower records! Finding both of these in one day was 1) weird and 2) made me wonder if I am playing too many games

I‘m guessing we can put a moratorium on the Hachiko statue, or we’ll be here forever looking at that (admittedly very good) dog.

A certain Street Fighter EX3 stage contains, for no discernible reason, a photo of Mr. T:

Tower Records Shibuya also features in the wildly under appreciated Neo The World Ends With You.
