An in-game screen shot of Egon's lab had a child's drawing hanging up in the background. It is a crayon drawing of a Ghostbuster firing his proton pack. The words under it read, "To Uncle Egon, from Ed." This could be a reference to Ed Spengler from the fan films Freddy vs Ghostbusters
(2004) and Return of the Ghostbusters
(2007). When the game is set to take place, Ed would have been just a child. See more
When driving to Times Square, Ray remarks on how nice it was "after urban renewal". The urban renewal didn't even start until Rudy Giuliani became mayor in 1994, three years after the game takes place. (PC/PS3/X360 version only.) See more

Ray, follow me; the others are floating back upstairs. Venkman; pull our friend Slimer into a trap as fast as you can. There's a massive bulge in these spikes indicating this isn't just some routine clearing job.
Dr. Peter Venkman
He gets so bossy when he hasn't had his nap.
Despite being made in 2009, the intro movie for this game carries the 1980s Columbia Pictures logo on it, just like the original Ghostbusters movie. However, the Columbia logo seen before the main menu loads is the modern one. See more
