Is it possible to display custom post content in a normal Wordpress post?

For example I have created a custom post type called Games Database, it is populated with game boxart, title, genre, platform, publisher, developer, review score and release date. Now when I create a new (normal) wordpress post I want to be able to select a game from a drop down menu that the post relates to, for instance if I'm writing a post about Mario Galaxy 2 I would want to select that game from my database and then when I view the post on the website I want to be able to see a widget display with all of the games details.

Is it possible to do this?

    You have certainly given for some food for thought there @Kaiser, I'm going to try and do a little more research before attempting it as I'm a novice at PHP lol, cheers!
