* In an episode of ''Series/SeventhHeaven'' Simon challenged two bullies to a game of ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry 2'' and the sounds from the Game Boy sound nothing like the actual game play.

* An episode of the soap opera ''Series/AllMyChildren'' features a character playing a game entitled "Dark Star" on the TV. He is, of course, mashing the controller (which appears to have come from a Playstation), and we hear, in order, the "death music" from ''Pac-Man'', the "begin level" music from ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', and the BGM from ''Space Invaders''.

* In the episode "Everybody Loves a Clown," from the second season of ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'', a child is shown playing a NintendoDS, but the sound effects emanating from the device are sounds from the original Atari 2600 release of ''Donkey Kong''.

* Simon Pegg, Jessica Hynes, and Edgar Wright made a point to avoid this in ''{{Spaced}}'', after being tired of all the generic video games in other TV shows made by people who don't play games.

* In Australian soap, ''{{Neighbours}}'', for most of the '90s, the only video game anyone on the show ever played was ''Magic Carpet'' (most of the time with the camera looking at the player from behind the computer monitor, so you just heard the distinctive sound-track and sound effects). Now, in 2010, when at least one family has a complete set of guitar controllers, one young cast member was sat playing on a DS Lite to the distinctive sound effects of Magic Carpet - unless a more recent game, that actually has a DS version, uses the same sounds...

* The ''Film/CharliesAngels'' [[TheFilmOfTheSeries movie]] has a sequence in which Drew Barrymore's character stumbles upon two kids playing ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' (a one-player game) with two 3rd party PlayStation controllers, buttonmashing unrealistically while out-of-place sound-effects play -- though at least the sound effects are neither particularly old-sounding nor from Pac-Man.

* Averted in ''[[Series/HouseOfCardsUS House of Cards]]'' on multiple occasions. Frank Underwood is shown playing ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}}'' in earlier seasons, and in season 3 he is shown playing ''TheStanleyParable''.

* The 8-Bit Jam music in ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies2ItsAboutTime[='=]s'' Neon Mixtape Tour contains these. Arcade Zombie's arcade machine also makes arcade sounds when it spawns zombies, as well as when 8-bit zombies are defeated. Justified, as the level takes place in TheEighties when arcade games were all the rage.

If you're too young to remember what ''VideoGame/PacMan'' was like on the 2600, check [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL2p2ANFlQ4 this]] out. And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juH2qHYX9aI this]] for good measure. And, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzI1RBdK2_g this]] is VideoGame/DonkeyKong on the same system. These two games probably account for the vast, vast majority of ArcadeSounds used on TV.

* In the webseries ''TheGuild'' one of the characters is never seen without her Nintendo DS with her, which is making old style Mario sounds. It's eventually revealed that she is playing ''VideoGame/NewSuperMarioBros'', which specifically used old Mario sounds.

* In a recent ''[[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Transformers Prime]]'' episode, the kids staying in the ''secret government base'' of a bunch of ''alien robots from space'' are playing a video game on an ancient wood-paneled console TV where the sound effects of the Atari 2600 version of ''Pac-Man'' can be clearly heard. Guess G1 fans aren't the only ones who can't stop living in the 80s....
