    "The Arcade Aid Challenge is a viral game from Flynn Lives to promote Tron: Legacy. In this game you have a map filled with game references and puzzles and you gotta name all 167 of them.
    Its harder than it seems, a lot of the references are very funny and the idea of this game is just brilliant! If you are a true gamer go check it out!"

    Found this on http://ctrlaltzombie.com/ :)

    I have only managed to get like 15 :( my game memory isn't good enough but I'm sure someone here can finish it :p

    =D I like the knife cutting through the word "Life", nice pun to represent Half-Life.

    The Altered Beast representation made me laugh a bit as well.

    Edit:
    The sound it played when I reached 30 correct answers made me jump out of my skin!
    On 40 so far.

    Re-Edit:
    94 done now, slowly getting there.

    Myst is the two baseball players, where one missed the ball.
    Some of them are really bad choices, though they really make you think.

    Out of interest, what was the first one everyone got?
    My first one to find was Earthbound.

    Oh and on that note... I've managed complete it this morning.
    Possibly one of my greatest and nerdiest achievements!

    Thought I'd give a visual aid to where Myst is as well. :)

    There pretty much all puns that make up names of games.
    Like the mobile phone next to the word "Duty" is Call of Duty.
    Right next to that you have a mousetrap which is literally Mousetrap, or the hill saying "Shhh" is Silent Hill.

    My favourite one was the evolution billboard that goes into a Tron character; Tron Evolution. ;)

    I think the silent hill and goldeneye ones have been my favourite

    goldeneye is:

    the picture of the cat with 24k above it. 24k(arot) gold, and it's pointing to his eye, as for why it's a cat....i have no idea

    I got to around 70 in the end, sort of got distracted by other things afterwards

    The purple cat on the right of the map with a box saying 24k above it.
    First time I looked at it I was thinking what on earth does a purple cat and 24k have in common, then you realise that the arrow for the 24k box is pointing at the golden coloured eye.

    Originally confused me because in the UK we use ct/kt but in the US they use k/kt to represent carat.

    Edit:
    Kiytan beat me too it.
