ITT: Video games in movies/tv shows.
Hard mode: The actor is actually playing the game.
Having an actor ACTUALLY playing the video game is like having an actor actually eating during a shot. There a more important, more expensive things to worry about than realism catering to 1% of the population
>First there's the whole shenanigans regarding product placement
>The actor can't be distracted from saying his lines
>And then there's actually choosing what part of the game to show
That's why it's shitty.
Nope. It was a prop created specifically for the movie for some reason. I've never understood why they didn't just use Virtua Cop or some other light gun shooter that actually exists.
The little girl was playing Mortal Kombat Trilogy on the N64.
Live free or DIEHARD was fucking hilarious when it was showing technology incorrectly, but IIRC they showed Macfag playing Gears of War pretty correctly; ie having him just playing a match while gulping down redbull and listening to loud ass screamo.
AH HA HA HA HA HA HA AH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
I don't think you can play RAGE with a gun, though.
He mentioned it like Arceus was the original name for some third-world country's mythos. I had to google it to make sure Arceus wasn't the name of some heathen mythological creature before it was the name of a Pokemon. I'm impressed.
Because he doesn't have to?
The nigga flat out said he makes shitty movies so he and his friends can take vacations and still make dosh. But maybe he'll get bored and get back into serious films later on.
>character in movie is making game
>PS2 graphics in 2014
C'mon, Let's Be Cops. You were pretty good other than that
>Tony Soprano and his son playing Mario Kart
>He jumps in mid race
>Plays one handed
>Aims controller at the TV
>Every sound effect starts playing at once
>The N64 isn't even plugged in
He's making money, he never cared about the "Art" side of things. And he's too old for his type-cast middle-age role anymore. So he'll have to actually try in his next serious thing.
>implying I'm a furfag
Have fun fucking your hand to cartoons for the rest of your life
I honestly think those digital alcohol jokes could've been funny in another show, but they let them go on too long and just sucked all of the potential humor out of them with that awful laugh track and Sheldon's autistic delivery.
>playing Super Mario on a poorly coded Nintendo 64 emulator
at least they used the right Mario sounds, I'm only half buttmad
>Check the profile in game
>It's completely filled out, listing interests and all
In Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Young Neil is actually playing the GBA version of ALTTP on his DS.
This is never directly shown onscreen, but is mentioned in commentaries/making-of stuff.
There's a lot of clever and relatively subtle references in that movie. Seems to be pretty divisive around here, though.
The kid is absolutely not interested in playing NES and can only talk about Call of Duty
I chuckled at some of this.
I'm sorry, /v/.
They're making more in a few years than what you, your kids, your grandkids, and your great grandkids will statistically earn over the course of their lives.
They could buy your soul if they wanted to.
They may not have "soul" but they sure have never ending coke and pussy and the ready-at-hand narrative of "redemption" if that path fails.
There was an edit where after the Spacey's question "What games does it have?" the other guy just silently stared at Kevin. He looked so akward, it was hilarious
There was a movie. "Lightning Thief" or something, I believe guys were playing CoD or BF there on a console. Movie was piece of shit, btw
I remember one episode where Sheldon got an n64 with like 20 games off eBay and asked his room mate if he wanted to play, he got rejected cause of "muh normalfag drama" and later it shows Sheldon in the stairwell with his laptop playing sm64 on an emulator, enjoyed the little nod until right at the end of the scene he said the most cringe worthy line ever
He bashed the keyboard and said "JUMP FAT PLUMMER MAN, JUMP!!"
That's a movie that revolves around video games though.
Yeah, that bugged me. Kids were also playing Gamecube I believe in that show.
Also, Sopranos had some scenes with Mario Kart too. Tony and Tony Jr were playing this shit together
I don't understand this show. I had a friend who was way into this shit. It's just not funny at all. I don't find it unfunny because oh no what are they doing to muh gamer culture but even everything around those bits is just really really bad and the canned laughter makes it that much worse. Pre laughed shit is the worst shit ever.
it was a fucking wreck full of teenager jokes
Is there a webum of that scene, its not the scene without motion.
says the guy who green txts so he can fit in on an internet message board and sound tough
There was an episode of the Twilight Zone where a guy was trapped in an Antarctic Station and
his depression manifested itself asa black man was was playing Halo, albeit with different sound effects
I've always loved the training montage of The Wizard. I'd like to think that's what the Nintendo tip hotline offices actually looked like.
I saw that scene on TV when I thought this show might actually be, you know, funny. That's exactly when I realized that the whole show is just shitty references and LOL WE'RE SUCH NERDS XD ZIMBABWE.
It's just painful to watch now.
I liked Scott Pilgrim but most of the references were anything but subtle. Sure there are a couple that are obscure like Clash at Demonhead or the Street Fighter 3 style parry in the first fight but mostly its just LTTP noises and music which are pretty well known.
Anyway, you'll never get a decent conversation about the Scott Pilgrim movie, comic or game on 4chan what with MUH HIPSTERS.
>lil niglets playing Halo on The Wire
>first time its obviously Halo 1 on screen, but all the sound effects are replaced with generic 1980s 'beep boop' shit
>next time it's halo 2, with proper sound effects, but with a big banner across the screen saying HALO 2 at all times
>halfway through season 4 the xbox is quietly replaced with a 360
>AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHA OH MY GOD I CANT STOP LAUGHING I THINK I JUST BLEW UP MY BLADDER OH GOD!
>(gargling noises from liquids coming out of the mouth)
>(spurting noises from diarrhea)
a poorly coded emulator
>cataclysmic events all over the universe leading into the destruction of time and space
Would you rather they had done a full 5 minute product placement scene dedicated to it? Or a whole fucking filler-episode that shoe-horned it in because the company funded the episode.
>Early episodes of six feet under
>Redhead girl is playing Quake 3
>Screen actually shows yellow skull medals
>Cut to her hands
>Playing with keyboard only
Still better than the costant system wars shitposting going on in this board
>lmao bloodborne is ps4 exclusive
>bloodborne a shit enjoy your 5 fps
>mgsv in pc lol
>enjoy your scraps
>who hyped for bayonetta 2
>literally nintendogaf, enjoy your timed exclusive
Nigga everyone watched the Beethoven movies as a kid, you mist be extremely underaged or extremely retarded
They aren't even good movies for the most part, but goddamn they are common pop culture knowledge
Because jokes are not suppose to be subtle, most normalfags would wonder where the joke was in the scene because there was no YELLING FOLLOWED BY LAUGH TRACK!
How am I suppose to know when to be entertained if the show doesn't tell me?
Forgot about that.
The fucking look on McGee's face. The actor knows this is the most cringe worthy moment in his career, and he's right in the middle of it.
Imagine the actors reading the scripts.
>'sheldon, say this line, then wait 5 seconds for the laughter to finish'
>'penny, say this line, its more clever, so you have to wait 10 seconds for the laughter to fade out'
They're training a little girl in military tactics by making her point out the flaws in the Call of Duty campaign. And she's such a genius they use her later on probably. Can't remember exactly.
>pretending to be multiplayer
>THE SUN BLINDED THEM, THEY SHOULD'VE TAKEN THIS ROUTE, NOT THAT ROUTE
>drawing all this shit in photoshop to look smart
Actors are just whores. They'll say whatever you like for large amounts of cash.
Every Anon on this site would insult and berate their favorite and most treasured game on national tv if the price was right.
My favorite of all time is still the scene from Swingers (1996) where they're playing NHL Hockey 94 and actually show that know shit about the game, like using the instant replay and talking about design changes between their version and games from the same series from earlier years.
Hes moving using auto walk and it possibly looks like hes spamming a rogue aoe on a night elf
>Dude Left 4 Dead is the best zombie game ever
>Have you played Call of Duty World at War, that game has NAZI ZOMBIES
I thought it was kinda funny since it was Badger and Skinny Pete.
Oh god this is perfect
>Made by some spanish /v/ user
>All those mmo high scores
>Double triple pipe overclock computers
>Playing second-life with a calculator
>Arrow in the knee
No wonder the writer's guild protested.
Depends. One talk-show I went to always gave out hot dogs and free snacks and treat you right, they were awesome.
Others just file you in and make it clear that it's a privilege to be there. Those are usually the shitty shows, funny enough.
>In the last one Timmy dies and becomes a fairy.
>"He can also fly."
Holy shit this joke was perfect.
> MAP30 again
I have to thank you though, I saw that movie a long long time ago and the only thing I remembered from it was a Doom arcade machine, a shootout and Ace of Spades, all at the same time.
The movie itself sucked ass but I kinda liked it, just never cared enough to look it up.
HOLY FUCK I NEED TO SEE THIS EPISODE I LIVE IN NEWTON
Please post the video for this. They took it off YouTube.
House is pretty good about accurately portraying video games. Although I remember him playing Metroid ZM on an SP and apparently reaching the first chozo statue results in pacman noises and a game over
>that second life stuff
I just can't stop imagining them doing some dramatic shit, and then Esteban Winsmore walking through the middle and causing the big man to freak out and wake up his mum.
Someone earlier in this thread said the kid in The Pacifier was playing something
Outside that, I cant think of any video games in his movies.
His characters typically would rather bash nerds heads than play video games.
despite being a fucking nerd i wanna bash his head in
Here, anon, maybe this will cheer you up.
why would anyone ever
friends is almost 20 years old and it has better writing about vidya than most shows today.
>that feel when you are the Chandler of your friends group
The only time they show video games correctly is when House plays one of the newer Ninja Gaiden games for a couple seconds. Though they say he stole it from the Children's ward. Bullshit.
Playin' a little Playstation huh
Sup with the whack Playstation sup
>He's just a shitty musician
Oy, did Nick try to advertise him a lot
What is with Nick and Disney always trying to make their child stars into musicians?
At least Big Time Rush had singers with some talent
>What is with Nick and Disney always trying to make their child stars into musicians?
Singing and acting generally go hand in hand, it just happens that their actors are also singers and they're cashing in on that
> Watching old Hanna-Barbera cartoons with a non-english dub as a child
> Grow up
> Learn english
> Watch old HB cartoons again
> mfw laughtrack
Sure, but I recall finding the dubbed version I watched amusing and funny even without that laughtrack.
It sure was weird watching them again in their original language and finding out they had one to be honest.
>they hate americans man
>3 out of 4 playable characters in world at war are american, one on the left is the only american
I thought IRC stood for "is really crappy." I don't know what it actually means.
Pretty sure there was a film with a kid playing the console version of Doom while sat on the living room floor in a house. I can't fucking remember anything else about it other than the his father was abusive and going to do something like shoot or hit someone. Google and YT have failed me in finding anything.
This kid in Rumble in the Bronx plays a Game Gear without a game.
I should've made my post clearer, I was requesting a video of the segment of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit where the person in the picture was from. I accidentally >>'d the person mentioning CSI because I was thinking of SVU.
>yfw Beethoven was on the space colony
yfw he is doomguy
Yeah they both do that quite a bit. Although Dan Schneider's shows usually have more talented actors than Disney Channel series. Say what you will about iCarly, but it had a great cast.
>IT'S A 16 CORE WITH A 12 MAG PIPE
All of his structural integrity went straight to his D.
>It's just a hard drive with games on it
That video first had me raging, but then I started laughing hysterically at the crazy wubwubwub and
Memories. That show was god-tier.
was the space colony
the joke is that he hasnt even reached the final level of mortal combat and its obvious cuz he thinks the final boss is sub zero
Cant find any videos, but I remember Twisted Metal 2 being played on Friends, think they were on the Paris map.
Another with Halo 2 being played on The Longest Yard, only briefly.
