So io9 did this thing called the 10 Suckiest Fake Video Games That People Play In Science Fiction. Spoiler Alert: The Game from, uh, The Game is number one.
1) Suckdisk from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Actually, we don’t remember this game having an actual name on the show, but “suckdisk” feels like a good name for it. The object of the game is to suck a disk into a tentacle with a mouth. That’s it. And it’s not even a game of skill – you win by “letting it happen.” D00d. At least the UI is simple, but basically this episode is a cautionary tale about improved technology – once we have the ability to stimulate the pleasure centers of your brain, you may be ridiculously satisfied with some pretty weak gameplay. Actually, I like this episode, despite the game looking seriously ridiculous.
So when I saw that they decided to call it "Suckdisk", my mind immediately crafted the following scene:
INT WESLEY'S QUARTERS.
Wesley looks down at the game, then up at Robin.
Um, this isn’t the game I wanted to play.
But you asked me to come to your quarters and play Suckdisk!
Right. I think you misheard me.
Tip your waitress, folks.
