Maybe the writers are Metroid fans, but the sound effects guys think it's just Pac-Man with better graphics. Kovac buys a brand new console. Shorts features a particularly bad example of this. One character is even manipulating both the directional pad and the directional stick.

Gamer Grub is a semi-example. Played With in the Stargate Verse. This has since been lifted.

Maybe the writers are

The low-budget horror film How to Make a Monster was obviously written by someone who had no knowledge of video game development, or video games in general. Cut to another angle, and it turns out they're playing Pong. They tried to get as many wrongs in that scene as possible as a shout out to this trope. However, the sounds are your generic random bleeps and bloops as opposed to the actual bleeping and blooping soundtrack.

What's described in the movie is the accurate trick method of defeating the final boss from the first game in the series instantly. There's also a scene where Reese is playing an original Game Boy without a cartridge. The above is nothing compared to this.

An episode of Big Time Rush has a sequence where one tomboyish girl tries to avoid talking to a girly-girl she wants nothing to do with by hiding in the bathroom, playing video games.

When the Game Boy is broken, he pulls a second one out of his pants, immediately playing it with the same sound effects. There's a video poker machine in multiple episodes of Sliders that produces Pitfall sound effects. He also makes the same mistake as in Jarhead of referring to numbered levels in a Metroidvania. It doesn't depict games themselves in unrealistic ways, but it does bring up the strange idea that games aren't compatible with most snacks.
