SEGA References in pop culture. Post them here

If you look closely, it's actually Poyo Poyo.
This was true for Death, Rebirth and the End of Evangelion. The original tv series wasn't sponsored, as far as I know, and if it was, the product placement would have been explicitly Sega, rather than "Seca". And there wasn't a bajillion, maybe 4 or 5 (and another 3 on Dreamcast)
I remember this quite vividly. Malcolm was bemoaning how out-of-date the Saturn was. I think it was the first time I was made to feel old.
I think Malcolm was referring to how the games were too "childish" for him, not necessarily how old the system was.

This video from about 1:50 has a bunch of dreamcast games on screens in the background (JSR, Shenmue, Space Channel 5, Samba De Amigo, maybe others). I recall seeing this back when the video came out lol. The video is chock full of product placement mind, so it's no real surprise.

In the original Evangelion series, when Asuka gets all depressed and hangs out at Hikari's to avoid going home, she plays a "Seca" all day. The design of the console is pretty much a Saturn.
FUCKING THIS! I So wanted to share this but wouldnt have known where to find the image. thank you so much Eggfan.

They don't show any gameplay footage, the screen is just blue. The music playing is a slightly different version of some background music from an earlier episode of evangelion, so Asuka's probably playing one of the many evangelion games.
I just googled "drew carey saturn." I would have liked to have found a better quality image but I couldn't be bothered.

In the anime series "Genshiken", some characters are playing Puyo Puyo Fever on a PS2. They even talk about it, Its kinda important for the plot of that episode.
They also play Guilty Gear, a LOT, but that's Sammy :P

Pretty sure they helped out until episode 20. Some bitter fans talked about it once over at eva geeks. Though I haven't been on that scene for awhile to know for sure.
Most of those that I know have already been said. :P
