* And then there's a commercial for becoming a game designer that's so bad Alta Colleges doesn't want you to see it. Parodied by ''Three Panel Soul'' [[http://threepanelsoul.com/2008/06/04/on-level-three/ here]].

* Doi from ''Manga/WanderingSon'' has a PSP if you look at certain panels. Anna and Maho are shown playing DS' and in an early issue Takatsuki has a Playstation in her room.

* Aboard starship Entreprise-2601 in ''ComicBook/{{Pouvoirpoint}}'' : on several occasions we see the characters playing a first person perspective video game in black and green wireframe, called ''Death Race in non-Euclidean environment'' (visually inspired by 1979 Commodore PET game [[https://youtu.be/Bk0iuJ4DgQE Ratrun]]). To defeat the boss ''Sly Lozenge'', the player must find the ''Power Polyhedron'', which activates ''Hyperbolic Crystals''. This raises the specter of the ''Rectangle of the Mountain'', who give the player ''Symplectic Invincibility''...
** They also play an unnamed 8-bit fighting game, with a red fighter against a blue fighter. Lots of {{ButtonMashing}} seems to be involved.

** His review for DinoCity starts off with him trying to figure out which console it's played with, trying to use it on a DS, a PS3, a PC's CD tray, a wireless router and a dishwasher (three times) before realizing it's supposed to go with the 'SMBS'. Then he plugs the cartridge in upside down.

* ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' has John playing ''VideoGame/GearsOfWar'' with somebody. Him playing it by randomly hitting buttons is justified, since he's never played an Xbox before and is given no instruction. The fact that the two players are shooting each other in what's clearly a co-op campaign, however...

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/NewKidsOnTheBlock'', Biscuit plays a New Kids on the Block Video game. The graphics are fine, but it sounds like something from the early 80's. The controller looks like an NES controller, but Biscuit holds it in his left hand and pokes it with his right hand.

* This trope holds true even in life-simulation series ''TheSims''. Any time a Sims character plays a video or computer game, the machine will make comically simple racing sounds or PEW PEW noises. This is somewhat averted by the video game consoles in ''The Sims 3'', which just show a bunch of nonsense on the screen, like horses zipping across woodlands without moving their legs.

* A portion of the plot of the Chapter Black arc of ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' focuses on something called "Welcome to Goblin City." The title isn't so retro considering it is, in fact, an arcade game. But it is nonetheless insanely popular, with nearly all of the team having played it, and Yusuke going as far as to call it "THE game." He cites that it has several gameplay modes, which makes it more like a collection of minigames than an advanced game. The story is that you have to "defeat the evil Goblin King by beating him in the best 2 out of 3 challenges." Finally, Kurama says that the Goblin King's death is graphically depicted--he explodes in a puff of smoke and the game says he's dead--like this is unusual.



* ''Series/FullHouse'': In "Stephanie's Wild Ride", a FictionalVideoGame is being played on a Super Nintendo with an NES Max controller.
* ''Series/JudgingAmy'': A cartridgeless Nintendo 64 is being played.

* ''Film/TheWizard'', a film which could best be described as a [[ProductPlacement 90-minute Nintendo commercial]], featured genuine footage of ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros3'' several months before its release. It ''still'' managed a number of inaccuracies, however.

* ''Series/TwoAndAHalfMen''. Jake mentions that he wants to get the "new Final Fantasy game", and when he goes to a video store and gets the game, it turns out to be ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. Not only was the game about three years old at the airing of the episode, it clearly had the red Greatest Hits logo. And when he got home and started to play it, remixed music from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyII'' could be heard.
** Another example is when Jake plays his DS with a high volume and Alan gets annoyed by the Pac Man sounds, he plugs the cable to Jake's headphones into the charge slot on the top rather than the standard headphone jack on the bottom. Alan must have been used to the GBA SP, which uses special headphones that plug into the charge slot.
*** They also refer to that same DS as a 'Game Boy'.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2015'' has the girls playing a game called "Dragon Wizard Skateboard Fighters". The console they play it on is a mishmash of the UsefulNotes/Xbox360 and the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}, and it doesn't have wireless controllers. Not much is shown of the game but it uses a point-system, the noises sound 8-bit, and the title screen is [[{{retraux}} very 80s looking]] however the customizing scene is drawn in the series normal style. During the climax scene multiple 8-bit noises are used in the fighting, combined with "combos" and "Game Over" graphics. The [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls original series]] mostly averted this trope.
