What is your favourite game commercial of all time! Any Gen any platform. Mine is the Mad World Gears of War Commercial as seen below! This made me run out buy a 360 right away, the emotion, the despair, the tension it was spot on perfect! And one of the best games last gen as well, what are your favourites? Can be an ad, TV commercial whatever :)

@ghostwarrior786: The two PLayStation ones you chose are destined to become classics for sure, here is the parody of Halo I know many spoofed it including Bulletstorm I thought this one was best!

haha never seen this one, its funny because its true. halo 3 was the last game i played where the community actually talks in game. now everybody sits in party chat which has ruined multiplayer experience to an extent

@ghostwarrior786: Yea it was more a parody but it was so true especially if anyone has ever used Live! But still a worthy parody for sure!

I have never seen a game commercial on TV that I found good, luckily there is youtube.

I like the one where mario and friends are beating up Yoshi. Commercial for Super smash Bros. http://youtu.be/K783SDTBKmg

I also like the commercial for Blast Processing of the Sega Genesis. http://youtu.be/zlulSyBI2aY

#23 Posted by R4gn4r0k (14459 posts) -

Welcome to the Next Level. :)

I love how he asks what Blast Processing does, but then doesn't explain what it does XD

Marketing at its best.

SEGA loved the whole "It does what Nintendon't" and Blast processing which they claimed made the Genesis faster and better, ah SEGA and the bit wars :)

Yeah, but all we know is that the SNES sucks for not having it, lol.

Believe it or not though, blast processing is referring to the Genesis having a faster cpu, so it's actually not bullshit. SHMUPS and run 'n gun games were better on the Genesis due to it, for example. ;)

@Renegade_Fury: @Solid_Max13:

I wasn't sarcastic or anything :p

Just showing a very fast car and a very slow one is some great marketing if you ask me. The Genesis was a little better and faster yeah, but they really make it seem like it's a gen ahead. Brilliant !

I was wondering if that 'Sega does what Nintendon't' was actually in a commercial of theirs, or it that was something used by fans?

#27 Edited by Solid_Max13 (3389 posts) -

@R4gn4r0k: Oh it was check the above posts you'll see the marketing they did, many of the commercials were based on bashing Nintendo good ol console wars those days :)

Oh yeah, as far as marketing goes, it's brilliant. That was actually one of the main commercials that made me get a Genesis, lol.

No, it's real.

Joe Montana, Michael Jackson, and Pat Riley. SEGA pulled out all the stops on this one.

"You there, come heerrrr!"

"Ahhh it's a murderer!"

"Give me the bag bitch and get down!

*sirens*

"What do you want! I'll give you my money just go!"

"Give me the damn 3DO!"

"What?!"

"Give me the damn 3DO!"

*Slap*

"Why can't you learn to rob like a real man!?"

"3DO, so good you will slap a burglar."

Lol best commercial. Here is the youtube video:
