Thew New Media Are Evil example has a lot of sub-points making reference to quite modern videogames. The trouble is it's trying to explain a series that aired twenty years before FarmVille and World of Warcraft ever came out... are there any games from the late '80s or early '90s that could be comparable? (Were they that addictive and absorbing back then, given the limitations on technology?)

According to Wikipedia, that episode aired in 1991. The Contra and Nintendo originated in the 80s, so it's at least accurate from that sense.

Y'know how J. J. Abrams has been making the reboot movies of The Original Series?

If they ever do a TNG reboot, I would like to nominate Wil Wheaton, formerly Wesley Crusher, to play Will Riker.

Wheaton not only has the face (and the beard!) to play Riker, but he also has the golden opportunity to make jabs at his own character!
New!Wesley: (Something annoying.)
Wheaton!Riker: Shut up, Wesley!
Can you say Ascended Meme?

There are regular tropes in the "trope based episodes" section, im working on sorting them correctly, but any help would be appreciated.

Also any new examples being put int the correct sections would be great
