That moment when, in a live-action film, anime, comic strip or other non-video game medium, one suddenly gets video game graphics for a scene. Can be either meant as a self-ironic joke, a would-be profound comment, or for purposes of narrative distantiation. If it's PlayedStraight, it's WatchingAVideoGame. Sometimes, instead of getting video game-like graphics, the show starts to briefly follow video game rules or use a video game-like display.

* In the ''KickButtowski'' episode "Battle for the 'Snax", Kick's attempts to lead a crowd to Gunther's restaurant features a progress bar on top of the screen, and a graphic reading "Angry Crowd!" flashing near the end. Another episode, "Not Without My Cereal", has Kick chasing his sister, Brianna, through a supermarket, and the animation turns 8-bit as Kick tries to avoid shopping carts. As Kick is hit by two shopping carts, the animation goes back to normal.

* ''VideoGame/TheWhiteChamber'' has a section where you're sucked into a retro gaming system, with everything pixellated to 8-bit (and it's possible to die). When it ends, it has no effect on the plot apart from your character deciding not to do that again.
