I’ve never heard of Goon Tower, which is forgivable since I tend to inhabit Fark-land more than SomethingAwful-land, but it’s a brilliant piece of geek creativity. Members of the SA forums got together and built the goon tower, a piece of artwork that references everything and anything. The references spread the realm of computer games (Zelda and Half-life, for instance), movies (Ghostbusters and The Matrix), popular Internet memes (tubgirl and peanut-butter-jelly-time), comics (X-men and Calvin and Hobbes), really OLD games (Knight Lore), books (Dune), history (ancient Rome and Hitler), art (Salvador Dalí and MC Escher), toys (Lego and Rubik’s Cube), news (Madeline McCann), and, well, pretty much everything inbetween. See how many references you can spot. Any favorite bits in there that you particularly like?
Me? I like the Rogue reference.
