It was a different era in gaming back then. None of these commercials could possibly run now. We’ve compiled a list of some of the most ridiculous and amusing video advertising from the past.
To be honest, advertisements throughout the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s couldn’t give a f**k. Some of the ads in this gallery are quite provocative, sexual, and downright offensive. However, it was a different era. But that’s what sold back then. It was practically you vs. your parents if you wanted a video game when you were a youngster. It’s a battle of good vs. evil. In that regard, video games have always been divisive. As a result, advertisements at the time took advantage of the parent/child interaction.
