* Similarly, Creator/{{Sony}}'s only franchises are ''VideoGame/GranTurismo'', ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'', ''Franchise/SlyCooper'', ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'', ''Franchise/GodOfWar'', ''Franchise/{{Resistance}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}}'', ''VideoGame/TwistedMetal'', ''VideoGame/{{Uncharted}}'', and ''VideoGame/TheLastOfUs'' (which is, as of 2015, just one game). Strangely, ''Franchise/MetalGear'' (often referred to as ''Metal Gear Solid'') and ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' will often get a mention, despite being third-party and having long abandoned exclusivity.

** You're lucky if you get a reference to a game past ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' and the Nintendo 64 era.

* Any time ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' gets referenced it'll always be a ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonFriendsOfMineralTown'' or ''VideoGame/HarvestMoonAWonderfulLife'' reference. The protagonist is always male and is always Pete (better known by his FanNickname, "Jack").

* {{Hero Shooter}}s? You obviously mean ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. As of 2016 however, ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' can seriously become a contender as well.

** As for ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'', it's a little better since ''Tekken 3'' is widely considered to be the best of the series and introduced a plethora of new characters including series protagonist Jin Kazama, so there's more characters that can be referenced. Also, the UpdatedRerelease of ''Tekken 5'' introduced Lili, who quickly became one of the most popular characters in the series. Other than that, expect possible references to Heihachi, Kazuya, Yoshimitsu, Nina, King, Paul, and Law, but anything else however will go over most people's heads.

* When you ask a random gamer what are SoBadItsHorrible video games, people will usually think about ''E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial'' for the Atari 2600 (yes, there are multiple games called like that), ''VideoGame/CustersRevenge'', ''VideoGame/{{Superman 64}}'', ''VideoGame/BigRigsOverTheRoadRacing'', the Nintendo-licensed CD-i games, the two infamous ''Sonic'' disasters (''[[VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2006 '06]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/SonicBoom Rise of Lyric]]'') and occasionally ''Pac-Man'' for the Atari 2600, but do not expect them to know about any other terrible video game ever made... unless, of course, they're a fan of WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd. (''VideoGame/PlumbersDontWearTies'', anyone?)
