    here are a few that my brother mentioned.

    Training Day - When Ethan Hawke goes to Denzel's home, Denzel's son is playing a Dreamcast. Well, you see a DC controller and hear some Atari 2600 sound a like noises, but there's a DC.

    Enemy of the State - After Will Smith goes shopping for his wife, he goes home to see his son and his friend playing Jet Moto 3 for the Playstation. And Smith does do the typical dad thing. Blocking the TV screen.

    Also, a coding or card or something is in the form of an NEC Turbo Express/Turbo Grafx-16 cartridge. And you do see a Turbo Express.

    Big Daddy - After the scene where Sandler meets his adopted son's teacher, you see Julian (son) playing Twisted Metal 3 for the Playstation.

    Baby Geniuses - When the baby escapes and heads to the mall, you see him briefly playing Crash Bandicoot for the Playstation. The baby comments that it's too easy.

    Terminator 2 - When John Connor and his friend go to the mall, you see many arcade games like NBA Jam and Afterburner.

    In Charlie's Angels, you see two kids playing the one-player Final Fantasy 8 when Drew falls into the backyard.

    In Mallrats, Jason Lee is playing a Sega hockey game (don't remember the name) in his room in the beginning.

    My favorite video game mention in the movies is from "Ernest Scared Stupid," when Mr. Worrell compares his battle against the trolls to world eight of Super Mario Bros.

    In 'E.T.', the older brother Micheal is wearing a 'Space Invaders' t-shirt in one scene, and he mentions 'Asteroids' in the same scene.

    In 'The Goonies', Corey Feldmam mentions 'Pole Position'.

    In 'Office Space', Peter is seen playing 'Tetris' on his computer at work.

    And in the movie 'The Wizard', their is all sorts of referrances to 'Nintendo', including equipment like the 'Powerglove'.

    There were a lot of games in T2 that were already pretty old even when the movie came out- the "THE END" screen is from Missile Command, also noticed a Deluxe Space Invaders game.

    Billy Madison is a great film because Adam Sandler tells a kid that he's wrong when he says Mortal Kombat is the best video game ever, he says Donkey Kong is!
