For those of you that are unaware, an Easter Egg in a video game is an object, character, etc. hidden somewhere inside the game. These Easter Eggs could be anything somewhat relating to the game, or, sometimes, games that are favorites of the developers. It is basically a "Easter Egg Hunt" for the gamer.
Here are some good examples of different kinds of Easter Eggs:
Moving on, I am pretty sure that this topic has been brought up before; however, now that the new game has been announced, I thought it would be a good idea to:
A: Discus adding Easter Eggs to the new Generals game, hidden all over.
B: Discus some good ideas for Easter Eggs.
I personally think that it would be good to add Easter Eggs into the game, hidden in different and special ways. If you have played the older games, you will notice that there have been destroyed units and buildings from the past games hidden among the other wreckage (specifically in C&C3). I think that occurrences like this and some other Easter Eggs, including as funny ones, should be hidden in Generals 2.
However, I don't think that they should be too frequent, and I think a small few of them shouldn't too easy to find. They also shouldn't be too hard to find, because that could distract someone from the game.
I'd say minor things like statues, plaques, buildings, advertisements, etc. would be a nice thing to add.
As for what I'd like to see specifically, here's a list:
-Ruins of vehicles and buildings from Generals/Zero Hour
-Memorial Statues from the war in Generals/Zero Hour
-"Emperor Qin's Terracotta Division" (A huge row of old Chinese units, possibly encased in mud or clay.)
-Some buildings from the Dune series.
-A C&C Community Tribute on an advertisement billboard -- maybe to CBCPT?
-An Office complex with the EA or Westwood logo on it (like in RA3, except not the headquarters).
-A tribute to Ahmed the Dead Terrorist (MAYBE)
-A giant Troll Face on one of the maps.
-A hidden building, where, if you destroy it, a bunch of civilians with meme faces spill out.
These are just some of my ideas; what are yours?
