Is it just me, or are video game ads are EVERYWHERE?!?! In magazines and stuck to the sides of buses and on billboards in Times Square. Gone are the days of having to flip to page 93 of EGM to see an ad of a hastily hand-rendered little blue man shooting robots ordering you to buy Mega Man 984,572X. Nowadays, I can't even watch a movie without first seeing the new Gears of War trailer soulfully narrated by a Tears For Fears song (which FREAKIN' ROCKED! by the way).
But I don't want to give off the vibe that I'm complaining, because I'm not. I love the fact that there are so many kick-ass games out there that publishers have to FIGHT in order for us to check out their wares. I'm just saying, sometimes I miss the subtle, poignant sales pitches of yesteryear. That's why I'm giving you this: Exciting Video Game Pitch. Just do me a favor and listen all the way through. I don't know where (or why) things go wrong, but when they do it's....memorable.
Also, I did want to leave you with this: A PHOTOGRAPH COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO MY POST!
