Forums - Gaming Discussion - Worst video game related adverts

Cerebralbore101's "worst cover art" topic running atm (http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=236970&page=1#) is great fun, and it got me thinking about another thing that's often facepalm-worthy in the gaming industry; awful advertising, whether it be TV commercials, youtube trailers, or posters.

What are some of the most hilariously atrocious examples of gaming advertisements you can recall?



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Ah yes, a classic of poor taste.

If this happened in 2018 the internet would blow up like a truckload of mentos emptied into a pool of Coca Cola.
