its a dangerous, mind numbing, mind altering, demonic weapon? i'm glad i wasnt raised in her house... the kids probably got beat with the bible...
Frickin' hate this ad. Unnecessarily adds fuel to the whole "marketing M rated games to kids" controversy, and this kind of crap will backfire and ultimately hurt the industry. It's a slap in the face - funny for some; heck, I'm sure the producers wet their pants laughing while they made it. But it does more harm than good.
Its says mom but all I see are grandmas. Im pretty sure all of their kids are grown. The fact that this commercial suggest otherwise is whats mind altering.
My girlfriend hates this too. She hates the sound of me stomping the bodies of necromorphs, soooooooo I pretty much just crank the speakers up.
Seriously. Why does no one care if they make bad movies? But a Bad game?!? Ut oh! Seriously, R movies are a lot worse than M games.
Commercial: "Your mom's gonna hate this" 12 yr old boy: "Then I better not buy this." 23yr old man: "like I care. I don't live with my parents, duh!"
Man! My friend's mom is exactly like that! I said something about Halo and she was all "YOU PLAY HALO!!!!!" and she went on about how terrible violent video games are. It was hilarious.
Surveys say the average age of a gamer is 32. Is EA correctly guessing that most of you 30 year old gamers still live with your moms?
Ok first off I find it hard to believe that they rented out an office and got 200 people together just to make one commercial so lets assume that it's a meta joke/statement on how offensive the game is. If thats the case though the game company is conceding that it is trying to get little kids to play the game. What grownup that plays Deadspace would care what their mom thinks? Does an adult ask his mom about rated R movies, Cigarettes, Alcohol or Porn? This is the kind of immature crap that feeds the right wing nutjobs. I hate them as most gamers do but why bate them and give them fuel to work with. They need to approach gaming from the same angle as Movies and the rating system should be legaly enforced so adults can get what they want and kids cant play Deadspace sorry call me old fashioned but if I had a 5 year old kid having him play Deadspace wouldnt be how I would want him to start developing his mind. On the other hand, for me yeah it's entertainment and your gonna have to pry it from my cold dead hands religioustards....
Mind altering demonic weapon!!! LOL, nice add, some of you kids out there just don't like this add because you afraid that your mom gonna see this and you won't be able to play this awesome game :D. Peace!
This IS a terrible advertising concept. Reading about the game, I thought it seemed cool - then I saw the ad. "Your mom's gonna hate it." So, now it sounds like it's targeted at the repressed-teen-living-with-parents market, and just seems lame. Not that the game itself is bad, just saying that they totally hit the wrong note with this ad campaign. And, although I do find the videos somewhat amusing, if these people really didn't know what was going on, it seems like an a-hole move. Some people really are sensitive to this kind of content, and it's not really funny to mess with their heads. However, I have a strong suspicion that they were clued in ahead of time about what they were going to see - otherwise EA would be in for a big lawsuit.
I think it's a great game and an funny as hell lol. some of you guys need to get the corn cob out your a$$ and laugh once in a while
...wow. This ad was stupid. It's a 17+ game. No one cares what their moms think of video games at that age anyway. It's like they are trying to get middle schoolers to rebel against mommy or something in order to get more money...makes them kinda more shallow then funny, I think. Good game, but dumb advertisement.
The add is funny and meant to be viewed as a joke.I mean it's not like EA's marketing team thought...oh yea,some 18+ "kids" are sure gonna buy this game because moms hate it.And it's not like this is their only trailer or anything.Unless you live in a cave you surely would have heard of Dead Space 2's release or new multiplayer feature long before ypu saw this add.The game is awesome anyway,it doesn't even need good add's.
Real mature. These same people will be the first to scream censorship when some congressperson with a stick up their ass decides to ban violent games again. Yet they're just asking for trouble by perpetuating the misconception that video games are all mindless violent crap. Anyone who would be sold on this ad's concept and thinks "violent, disturbing action" is a reason to buy a game is a moron.
Dead Space I and II are not for the "faint of heart", that means that it was never intended for sweater-knitting GRANDMAS!
Okay seriously people, your judging a game because of a sorry ad campaign. How about we actually PLAY IT before we deem it a piece of crap? or is that just completely ridiculous. This campaign is just meant to be a joke okay? Jesus lighten up alittle
Wow this is the worse ad in the history of ads. Instead of showing off the additions to dead space they show older women with constipated faces saying borderline stupid things. Here's a thought EA this game is rated M for mature. You have to be 18 to purchase this game what would they care what their "mother" says about this game? I actually feel bad for deadspace 2. Thank god they didn't use this awful backwards ad campaign for deadspace 1 because it would have never sold. I mean it doesn't even say multiplayer support and honestly it has some fun multiplayer wtf EA? I hope the marketing team that made this gets fired ASAP.
Gosh, this is ad is just terrible, the moms ( if they aren't actress ) are totaly dumb, "mind numbing weapon" !? Come on, she's just afraid that after playing the game her kid will think she's a necromorph and cut off her limbs... And still, this ad is totaly stupid, what kind of brain-dead moron would buy a game just because his mommy hates it... "Oh' no, son, look at that horrible mind numbin' weapon !" "yeah, mom, I see it, you hate it, right ?" "Right" "YEAH !!! I'M TOTALLY GETTIN' THIS GAME !!!"... I actually played the game and it's awesome, I love the gore and violence, really if it doesn't really scare me, I find it enjoyable... And by the way, my dad likes it too :)
For those of you who think Dead Space 2 is equal to or less than the first Dead Space, consider the fact that this game has better graphics (just a little but every bit counts), better story, better balancing, and probably the most important: this game has just as much horror, but 16 times more action. As well as a multiplayer that critics have been talking really good about. As well as solid extras, great sound and a less repetitive. So play the game before you start complaining about it.
The first game was pretty much "OMG I get to blow limbs off creepy things!" This doesn't look much different. What happened to survival horror??? Remember the crappy controls, weak weapons, and scarce health packs? That was horror, this is not.
I have a feeling some politician's are watching this, and are saying " This is the proof we have been looking for!' : P
