i remember different consoles appearing in different tv shows ,and movies the ones that come to mind are...

My Blue Heaven-Rick Morranis (the guy from honey i shrunk the kids) either him ,or his partner was playing NES

Mama's Family- there was an episode based around the family getting an atari 2600 from naomi's ex husband

Josie & The Pussycats Movie- There was a crapload of Dreamcast references

Bringing Down the House- The little boy was playing GBA early in the movie he was playing Kirby on it. Then later he was playing Jak & Daxter Precursor Legacy on PS2

Hey, anyone remember the episode of "Dharma and Greg" where Greg got to move in all his old non-Dharma safe stuff back in to the house. He totally moved his big screen with a Dreamcast attached to it. Snoogans! |/|

OK stop the press. Everyone go out and rent the movie SURF NINJAS.

The Game Gear plays a prominent role in that film. Anyone who's seen it can back me up.

In the movie Enemy of the State with Will Smith a turbo express is featured prominently because some crazy dude records some pictures onto a hu-card, which a kid later tries to put into a turbo express and only gets static. Only time i've ever seen a TG-16/PCE/whatever in a movie.

Okay, if we're talking movies, by far the coolest video game system in a movie is the system that Strike gives to the kid that hangs around with him in the movie Clockers. It's a freaking prototype of the Sega VR headset system that Sega never released.

I was watching a rerun of Family Matters, and Carl and his mother were playing a figthing game with controllers that are defo from an snes (even though you can't see the snes itself. I know its a snes cause the cart looks like an snes one as well.

btw, the fighting game they were playing kinda looked like Ultra Vortex for the jaguar :lol:

It was an episode entitled "Video Mania" from 1994 in which Mark's Stepfather buys a "Super Video Buster", which from the looks of both the box and the console itself is a genesis, and Mark ends up getting addicted to videogames. He ends up going to a support group and then all is well.

I was excited to see that The Drew Carey Show had upgraded from a Saturn to a Dreamcast. I think that was on of the first times I saw a Dreamcast in a sit-com or on tv other than just a commercial...

remember the show 'men behaving badly' with rob schneider?

Jamie and a kid were playing some fighting game with snes controllers.

and I forgot which show it was but I saw two people using psx-style controllers w/ a snes console.
