The Simpsons parody Halo and teabagging

Dale Weir's picture

"...there is a kegger down the hall. We can go as soon as I desecrate this corpse. I'm sorry Marge, where are my manners? Did you want to taunt my kill also? Press the "X" button."  - Homer Simpson

If you're like me, on the one hand you're thrilled to see The Simpsons parodying videogames... outside of its own videogames (The Simpsons Hit & Run and The Simpsons Game). On the other hand, you sigh sadly with the realization that the masses are seeing one of the less savory sides of interactive play. Why couldn't the writers lampoon Shadow of the Colossus or Flower? Ah well, it was a pretty funny clip.

I feel for any gamer that had to explain and eventually defend to his or her mom what Marge and Homer were actually doing.

The Simpsons has a long

The Simpsons has a long history of lampooning video games, like the episode where Bart stole the Mortal Kombat style game "Bonestorm" or when Bart and Homer compete in the "Super Slugfest" boxing video game.

Buy me Bonestorm or go to Hell!

You're right. It has been so long that I forgot about them. Man Super Slugfest is going waaaaaaaay back.

The very first season had

The very first season had Bart battling Grandpa Simpson in a boxing game. They also had a WoW episode that wasn't nearly as good as the South Park episode.

Simpsons video game references-

You know, I still can't boot up a Tiger Woods game without, on some level, wishing that it was Lee Carvallo's putting challenge.
