When Video Game Commercials Were Fun


You know I've been watching next-gen commercials and I must say I'm pretty disappointed. The Wii has their japanese salesmen who say &amp;amp;quot;Wii Would Like to Play&amp;amp;quot; and they have fun with a family. Meh. Gears of War had a sad song as we followed Marcus run down a dark street. Good I guess. MGS4 had a movie trailer, was okay. Soul Calibur 4 showed off gameplay, not much else. Mass Effect was okay, Sonic was okay....they've all just been okay.<br />
I'm not a fan of all the next gen commercials. They do nothing but show off their product. Or sometimes they don't show gameplay at all! Where's the humour? Where's the effort to make an interesting commercial anymore? This is a collection of some truly epic video game commercials and ones that the people making commercials today should probably look at. This is what convinced me to play Battletanx when I had no interest in it whatsoever. This is what had me laughing myself silly when I saw them on TV. THESE are commercials! Bring the fun back! Anyhoo, enjoy.<br />
