Video Games is the fourth episode of Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.
Ssserpent has escaped from prison, and is going on another rampage. Ben arrives to stop him and transforms into Four Arms to fight (briefly showing surprise that Four Arms is "still in there"). Four Arms defeats Ssserpent by crushing him with two cars and suddenly, (after Four Arms transforms back into Ben) a helicopter comes and a man comes out, introducing himself to Ben as Oliver Thompson, a video game producer and tells Ben that he's going to star in his own video game.
At Mr. Smoothy, Ben meets with Kevin and Gwen, where Kevin was trying to teach Gwen how to drive. Ben tries to tell them about his new video game, but Gwen and Kevin are busy arguing about Gwen's driving skills. The argument is finally put aside when Ben agrees to teach Gwen. Kevin goes with Ben to watch him screen for his video game, and Ben shows all of his aliens' moves to Oliver (except for Nanomech who's too small to screen). But when Ben leaves, Oliver is revealed to be working for Will Harangue, the TV reporter who constantly criticizes Ben and the video game is revealed to be a ruse for Harangue to destroy Ben and counter all of his aliens' moves. When Ben tests Gwen on her driving, they're attacked by Harangue's robot called the Stalker, and when Ben fights it, it's revealed to be too strong for Ben after he transforms into Spidermonkey and Swampfire.
As the Stalker fights Ben, Gwen drives Ben's car to escape it. The Stalker confuses another car for Ben's and attacks it, but Ben transforms into Jetray in order to flee away. Harangue notices the robot's malfunctions, so he decides to take over instead. The next day, Gwen is up for another test for her driving, and when she was doing well, she and her instructor are attacked by the Stalker again. As the Stalker chases Gwen and Mr. Webb, Ben notices the action and transforms into Cannonbolt in order to defeat the robot, but the Stalker shoots a super powerful glue that traps Cannonbolt. Cannonbolt transforms Big Chill to escape, and the robot is also able to melt away the effects of Big Chill's ice breath. With one more transformation, Big Chill transforms into Lodestar, but realizes the robot isn't made of metal. Soon enough, Lodestar transforms back into Ben and gets too weak and surrenders as Harangue is about to finish him.
Harangue decides not to finish Ben off, as it would threaten his ratings, so he decides to fight Ben personally in Washington D.C. and challenges him to the fight on TV. Ben accepts and he, along with Gwen and Kevin, go to Washington D.C. The Stalker comes and turns on a monitor with Harangue's face on it, and through it Harangue asks Ben if he has any last words. Ben transforms into Humungousaur, but the Stalker is too strong for Humungousaur. Humungousaur then decides to use his moves from one of his video games and it causes the Stalker to go out of control and rampage and realizes the only way to stop it is to transforms into Nanomech to go in and shut down the Stalker. Nanomech is able to get in, with Kevin spitting him from a straw and he breaks the robot apart.
Harangue is defeated and Ben transforms into Way Big with the remains of the Stalker and crushes them. He then drops the remains on Harangue's car. The next day, Harangue criticizes Ben about framing him to be the bad guy and for also wasting the money that it cost him to build the Stalker. Gwen shows up and tells Ben and Kevin she has her driver's license and she says, "I passed my driving test." She uses Kevin's Car to drive her friends to Mr. Smoothy, with Ben and Kevin racing to get shotgun.
