In episode 7 of Breaking Bad season 4, "Problem Dog", you can see one of the main characters (Jesse Pinkman) playing a video game around 00:40:

Screenshot of game

It looks to me like a first person shooter. The enemies bald guys with a sickle, and some of them also wear scarves that cover the lower half of their head. I believe the setting is rather new, since I can see graffiti on the walls. The part of game shown is in wet underground rooms.

What is the name of this game he's playing?

@Mien the game in the opening scene is apparently RAGE, although I haven't seen the episode myself to verify. – kalina Jul 18 '12 at 22:11
Thanks @pixel, that indeed looks like it. – Mien Jul 18 '12 at 22:14

Though note that the game is an FPS, not a track-based shooter. This scene of the game appears to have been specially-made for the show. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Feb 5 '14 at 21:12
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft, it is also possible they used a custom controller. Light guns have been developed for console shooters like this. – Timelord64 Sep 9 '15 at 2:22
