    Default Gaming Spoofs and References in TV.

    I dropped by on 1up.com today found this article Video Games, Animated: Parodies from the Cartoon Kingdom from 1UP.com and decided to it could make for a fun topic. Out of all the game related spoofs and references on TV which is your favorite?

    I give the reward to South Park's WoW episode with the Family Guy SFII for close second.

    Robot Chicken has many references to video gaming in its spoofs. My favorite spoof was the one were Mario and Luigi went to Vice City from GTA series getting lost during a Mario Kart session.

    Yeeeahh I think I've also gotta go with Robot Chicken here. Although off the top of my head I really can't think of many others, other than the really infamous ones (horrible CSI episodes, I'm looking at you!)

    The Seinfeld episode The Frogger - the ending is hilarious.
    "Excuse me Miss, do you like pineapple?"

    The Spaced episode when Tim is playing Resident Evil 2 throughout is pretty good. They even managed to get the Raccoon City Police station music to play during the credit sequence.

    In Johnny Test Johnny's favorite video game character is a badger named...Smash Badger.

    I'm gonna cheat a little bit here. In the manga Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo they have quite a few gaming references. The ones I can remember are the "difficult level of Xevious" which is an attack Bo-bobo used to defeat one of his enemies (he kicks one of the little square enemies from the game at him and his score goes up). In the same volume they had the "Legend of Kage Jump" which was him jumping onto a train drawn in the same pose as the main character from Legend of Kage.

    There was a whole scene dedicated to Street Fighter in the Jackie Chan movie, City Hunter.

    Yu Yu Hakusho had Zangief and Ken in the background in the episode where Yusuke has to take Genkai's test.

    Peter re-enacted some stuff he saw on Grand Theft Auto in Family Guy (he said something about him learning to drive from that game).

    In the Nick version of Doug they had the Super Pretendo. He became addicted to it and his grades slipped. I forget what happened in the end.
    Xenogears is the tragic story of how your whole life can take a crappy turn, just because you happened to see a lady in a wedding dress before her wedding.

    Remember the Powerpuff Girls episode where the Mayor was playing Ocarina of Time?

    Because that was great.

    Oh yeah, I remember that. There was also E. Honda at the Demon tournament and Cody in the audience.

    Oh trout, you taking me way back! The Super Pretendo. !!!!

    I remember that. I sympathized with and applauded the Mayor, Navi annoys the crap out of me as well, and I certainly wish I were able to cut her.
