It's always lots of fun to poke fun at commercials, especially the craptacular video game commercials we see on TV.  That being said, there have been some good ones, so let's share and talk about our favorites. 

These honestly made me lol when I first saw them earlier in the decade.  Granted, the games themselves were kinda "ehh" compared to the commercials, but the commercials were still funny.

So what are/have been some of your favorite video game commercials?

We almost never get ads on TV for games down here. I can't remember the last time I saw one... oh, no, wait. Super Mario Galaxy 2 has had one. But it's not really that bad.


I feel embarrassed just watching that one. Ritz has been ruined for me forever.

There are rarely any game adverts on over here.

These are mostly consoles but they were pretty funny.

If you think American game commercials are crazy, here's a real interesting Zelda:LttP commercial from the Far East.

If only they'd used this instead:

I can't think of any good ones, but I do feel slightly embarassed for thinking adverts like this one from Sega were cool when I was 9 or 10.

It should have just been a visual novel. Less game, more pics. :p

I can't get enough of this guy. His ads are the best videogame ads ever imo. That laugh at the end of the GT5 ad is priceless. There are a lot of little details that you only catch after watching them a few times.
