A show on G4TV Network that follows the lives of 1980's game programmers Dave and his best friend Jerry. They work for a company called Gameavision, a name play on the classic game company Activision, and are constantly causing problems (and in the 3rd episode leaving, only to return after their failed company, Stonervision, goes baknrupt) at the company. The show is animated in an 8-bit art style, and much of the show's humor is based off of video games.

Dave: Damn it, I knew I was a genius.
