The Worst Game Adverts Ever!!
RiKo
There have been some pretty bad game adverts over the years. I have found some particularly bad ones from the 1980s that deserve to stay there. The first one is a BBC Micro game Maniac Mower I love this - first of all it's a lawnmower game, but worse the developer obviously can't afford a camera and so has actually drawn the screenshots - really badly! BTW this is scanned from an old BBC Micro mag , and all the other games do have proper glossy adverts with colour screenshots - so there is no excuse for this!

Ok here is the next one it is from a game called Surf Champ on the Sinclair Spectrum computer. If my memory is correct - this game came with a mini surfboard which you rested on the computer keys, and the computer read which area of the keyboard you were pressing. I don't even need to tell you that this is the worst drawing of a man carrying a surfboard/Spectrum ever! Smile

It would be good if other people know of any bad videogame adverts (I'm sure there are lots) if they could post them in this thread. I wonder if there are any modern PS3,Wii or 360 games which have terrible or embarassing adverts.

haha yeah he saw his company loose alot of fans. also lots of people comment that the game isnt that bad... i hear this quite a bit and they also say its realy good for a game that took 5 weeks to make. i disagree with both these statements, believe the hype it does deserve to be buried in mexico.

i love old school christmas esspecialy when theres an old game under the tree especialy games that took longer than 5 weeks to brew up.

I was thinking more of print adverts, but I like the Atari vid too Thumbs Up its good the Atari has a Joystick cos ET could never use a D-pad

One of my fav Christmas' ever was when I got a copy of F-Zero for my Super Famicom, might have been the best Christmas ever in fact. In those days I used to get really excited about games Smile

Haha me too - getting Tekken 3 at Christmas was one of my fav Xmas's too!! esp cos it was the next fighting game I got after Street Fighter II on SNES. It seemed amazing, even stuff like the head tracking - I had never seen before Smile
