In Hare+Guu, Hare plays video games at home in some of the episodes.

[spoiler]In one of the later episodes after Hare and his mom go back to her city home, I think Guu lets him sort of play in her head as a mecha, dunno if that counts or even makes sense, you have to see the episode. I think it's on the last dvd released)[/spoiler]

Sota was playing some tekken rip off in the early episodes of Inuyasha.

And wasn't Ryoko playing at an arcade she smashed on Tenchi In Tokyo while on a date with Tenchi.

And there was an Episode of Gokusen where some Shinji like character was about to steal some video game for some assholes playing some console.

Also(since noone mentioned it) the .Hack series!

That was like...nothing. I think buying and playing aren't the same things, they never actually PLAYED in that episode though.

There's a bunch of scenes in Ai Yori Aoshi where characters play console games (Fighting Son in Law, FTW!).

There's also that the episode of Chobits where Hideki and Chii attempt to play an online game. You may not get much out of that though, as most of the scenes are depicted as if they were actually in the game, not holding controllers or a keyboard like in reality.

In one of the few amusing moments of the Nadesico movie, Hikaru royally schools Ryoko in a fighting game (even more amusing since she wails on Gekiganger with a magical girl character.)

In either season 4 or 5 of Ranma 1/2, Ranma and Genma are at some rich kid's house playing video games. There's also an episode of Love Hina that's kinda along the lines of the Chobits episode where they end up inside the game.

Well... Kero (in Cardcaptor Sakura) loves playing video games. That's what he' s usually doing whenever Sakura calls him for help. :)

There is an episode in Ghost Stories where, in the english version, the whining kid and the perverted kid (I'm not good with names) are playing Dark Cloud.

Asuka in Evangelion played a Sega Saturn lookalike.
