The Simpsons parody a whole host of AAA games in their latest episode featuring titles such as Grand Theft Scratchy, World of Krustcraft, Shaun White: Time Snowboarder, Dig Dug Revelations, Assassin’s Creed: Summer Of Love and Human Centipede.
Dear Simpsons, Even though you are slowly dying, thank you for making an episode like this. You're helping to support gamers.... UNLESS YOU'RE MOCKING US IN THE EPISODE! Bye :)
The Simpsons aren't dying, they might not have the same effect now days because they have already done everything, now other shows copy them. Also, people always try to compare new episodes to classic ones that they remember fondly, nothing can compare to the first time you watched the Simpsons, it's dumb to compare. The Simpsons are still the best animated show on television IMHO.
They have been for a while now.
Completely agree, dude. They have done everything. Even South Park admitted it. Simpsons is the best show in the history of television and Homer Simpson is the greatest fictional character of all time.
They are actually dying. This year, the voice actors had to take a large pay-cut to keep the show going.
Slowly dying? The Simpsons has been dead to me for over a decade. There is absolutely no creativity in the show these days IMO, and this episode is a prime example of that. EDIT- Noticeably_FAT It has nothing to do with nostalgia like you are implying, the Simpsons just isn't funny anymore.
Simpsons still have some hilarious moments. Its just that they're down to 4 or 5 an episode when it used to be about 10 a minute.
The Simpsons are like Jay Leno, you can't believe it's still on and makes you kinda laugh sometimes.
Simpons is not dying slowing ... is already dead. The difference with Futurama is simple : "futurama" have the balls to close the show before it turns in a zombie show like Simpson. The parody in this episodes show only how much biased and how poor are their ideas.
um futurama was actually cancelled by fox after about 2 seasons, they continue to live in reruns now.
Actually Futurama was cancelled after 4 seasons. Then, like, 5 years later they aired 4 direct-to-DVD movies in 4 parts each on Comedy Central. Now, they are airing brand new episodes on Comedy Central. They just aired a whole season of almost 30 episodes and are going to air the next season sometime next year. The Simpsons is very stale to me. I just never find anything in the episodes funny. A lot of those shows are getting stale to me: Family Guy, The Simpsons, The Cleveland Show, American Dad, Futurama. I still watch every episode, except sometimes The Simpsons. South Park is one show I still think is hilarious at times.
I loved the God Of War parody, you can tell they were actually gamers because they poke fun of how easy the game was.
Expensive Electronic Entertainment Expo. Classic.
I cant believe they didnt show Angry Birds and Y Box.
Angry Birds was like the first thing they showed. They shot a bird at what was supposed to be at the game, but it was overthrown and hit a real construction site. Didn't disagree btw lol...

FYI: the open world simpsons videogame from EA a few yrs back also pokes fun at other "popular" video games...pretty funny game to say the least. could have been better though.
I like that part where the was a statue of John Madden with Master Chief and a Big Daddy

futurama has done better nods to videogames. and old Simpsons too. remember bonestorm?
