The AMC series Breaking Bad has depicted some pretty detestable things, including producing and selling meth, but perhaps the show’s biggest offense was the depiction of characters enjoying Sonic ’06. In the eleventh episode of season four, titled “Crawl Space”, the character Jesse plays a two player match of Sonic vs. Shadow in Wave Ocean with his girlfriend’s son. Warning: the following clip features some very bad pretend video game playing.
Nothing against Breaking Bad, I’ve just started watching the show and it is very good, but the way they pretend to play the game is just awful. At one point the actor playing Jesse is just spinning both analog sticks on the 360 pad. I also like the banter: “How are you doing all those backflips?”, “Cheat code.”, “You’re just pressin’ buttons and it makes you do magical stuff”, “A hundred and one backflips I did”. Breaking Bad may have won the award for worst video game playing, unless readers know of a worse offender.Ad:
