Scott Pilgrim's precious little videogame references

How many game callouts are "hidden" in the comic's pages? Let's look at them all and find out

With all the Scott Pilgrim love in the air, we figured now would be a perfect time to comb back through all six volumes of the graphic novel (as well as a few side stories published elsewhere) and count off every gaming reference we could find, hidden or otherwise. Part of the fun of reading the books is spotting these for yourself, but if you’re lost (or just want to confirm whether you’ve found them all), the following guide should make everything clear.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
