The Final Countdown: Bad Video Game Ads, Google Searches of Famous Characters and Mal Reynolds

Go here to see overused video game ad templates that should die.

“I remember when TV ads for video games used to be good, or at the very least memorable. Who could forget “Genesis does what Nintendon’t”? Or the Zelda rap? Or the amazing ad for Super Mario 3? Not every old video game ad was great, but it seemed like most were at least trying to be as creative, unique and catchy as possible. During the 16-bit era in particular, a new ad from Sega or Nintendo was an event.
