What's in a game, or more importantly, what are TV writers trying to say when they come up with episodes about TV characters playing games? Are they hinting at themes, foreshadowing plot twists, or just having fun with tropes they normally can't touch with a ten-foot pole?
Games can also be a useful way to introduce characters, get them to reveal their deepest, darkest secrets, and have them interact with other characters that barely exchanged two words of dialogue with one another beforehand.
The type of game doesn't matter just as the format of the show doesn't matter.
TV episodes devoted to characters playing games can happen on any show. It's something to be thankful for because watching beloved characters do whatever it takes to beat a game has produced some very fine half hours and hours of television.
