Culture references in EGS. Canon unless specifically mentioned as non-canon.

Star Trek Edit

Star Trek is mostly referenced through Susan, who is a big Star Trek fan. It is a reason for the uniforms in Red Alert.[1]

Unlike Susan,[2] Justin likes the new Abrams Star Trek movies.[3]

Elliot watching whole TNG is big part of his relationship with Susan.[4] That's why she appears as Deanna Troi in his dream.[5]

Star Wars Edit

Star Wars is referenced often, sometimes in contrast with Star Trek.[6] Grace hadn't seen any of them until Justin won the loan of a non-special edition laser disc collection (and player) from Tensaided in Duel of the Discs.[7][8]

Justin seem to be big Star Wars fan.

Magickal Gatherings Edit

Main article: Magickal Gatherings

Magickal Gatherings is obviously based on Magic the Gathering CCG, although it is not direct reference: while the rules seem to be very similar (just with changed terms), Dan creates his own cards to maximize the joke potential.

Pokemon Edit

Pokemon is referenced sporadically, mostly whenever George is playing it.[9][10] Within the bounds of canon, there is also Ashley's Braixen fantasy.[11] Sketchbook features Susan as Meowstic.[12] There is also a picture of Ashley as Mareep on deviantart[13]

Less referenced canon games Edit

Non-canon games Edit

In NewsPaper, Grace is playing multiple games directly taken from our universe to maximize the joke potential of relatively short stories. There are not canon exactly due to that: if Dan wants something in canon, he may need to make some modification to fit better.
