For those of you who tuned into the last episode of Breaking Bad, episode 7 of season 4, “Problem Dog”, you may have noticed that in the opening sequence Jesse Pinkman (a character in the show) was seen playing the upcoming game RAGE. The show uses the game a metaphor for the rage within side of the Pinkman character and ends with him having the choice to quit or restart. At which point he chooses to restart.

The fact that such a high profile show as Breaking Bad not only used the game as part of analysing this character’s emotional state and motivations, it also gives the game some pretty heavy publicity leading up to it’s impending release.

If you weren’t able to catch the scene in the latest episode you can check it out below. Do note that the version of RAGE shown on Breaking Bad isn’t the same as the full retail release and appears to have been altered into an on rails shooter specifically for the show as a story-telling device.

Let us know what you think of RAGE on Breaking Bad in the comments section below.

    Pretty sure this is a paid product placement, as every Breaking Bad clip on AMC.COM starts out with an ad for the game.

      Most likely is. I think whether it was Rage or not, they would have utilized a shooting game of some sort to simulate the break down of the character Jesse Pinkman.
