20 Awesome Vintage Video Game Ads

Vintage Game Ads

And when I say vintage, I really mean vintage.  The new gaming generation would most certainly be too young to even know about most of the games that were around in the early 80’s.  Hell I was just sucking my thumb in those years.

But to see some of the campaigns these guys came up with for the likes of Pole Position and Pitfall are pretty outstanding (neither of those are pictured below, sorry).

When you see names like Parker Brothers you know you’re going way way back.

Here are 20 awesome vintage video game ads.
