Clearly, each book is a shout-out to another video game - I can recognize several of the references, but eight that I'm not certain about and it's left me curious what video games the books I don't recognize are referencing.
The book titles refer to other games that came out during the 1990's as well as franchises that are owned by Bethesda.
Daikatana - Superfly Johnson is a sidekick to Daikatana's protagonist, Hiro Miyamoto, and accompanies you throughout much of the game. Daikatana was directed by John Romero, one of the major figures in the development of the early id software games including DOOM I & II.
Duke Nukem - The name "Dork Norkem" is a play on words of Duke Nukem. The unflattering name of the author may refer to the rivalry between id Software and 3D Realms (the developers of Duke Nukem).
Deus Ex - UNATCO (United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition) is the agency that the protagonist, JC Denton, initially works for. In dialogue the name is always pronounced "u-nat-co" as a word rather than initialised. The game also has a scene which became a minor meme involving the discovery of a bomb.
Rage - A game by id Software in the similar vein to the Fallout series.
Quake series - Stroggs are alien invaders that are bad guys in Quake 2 and Quake 4 and are playable characters in multiplayer games (e.g. in Q3 Arena). Their logo is also present in original Quake on so called Strogg Crates.
DOOM, original flavor - Flynn Taggart is a known alias of the original Doom Guy, primarily in the novelizations of the original games which... deviate from the game canon, to put it mildly, hence the mention of retconning.
Commander Keen - Dopefish is a large green cartoony fish featured in the game.
DOOM - Tei Tenga is a planet or a moon which is mentioned as off-world mining place in original Doom and in 2016 Doom reboot.
Prey - The title here refers to the on/off nature of the cancelled sequel to the original Prey. It might also refer to the minor controvesy about if the 2017 game is a reboot or a sequel.
Fallout - The protagonists in the Fallout series are called Vault Dwellers, and an item in various Fallout games is the 'Wasteland Survival Guide'. This guide would be useful to them to survive the nuclear wasteland.
Fallout - Nuka-Cola is a beverage in the Fallout universe.
With my copy I don't have number 17, instead of that I have "how to comb your mustache" by Clifton M Fischbach...Is that a reference to Markipler? (Last name Fischbach and known for a character called Wilfred Warfstache with a huge pink mustache)
