Gameboy pocket - Stick it in Your Pocket!

I never saw this commercial, but it reminded me so much of the commercial for the WCW/NWO Uncensored wrestling pay per view from 1998, then I scrolled down to the comments, I wasn't the only one! :lol:

N64 - Change the System/SM64 spot. Now this is a pretty neat commercial. Never saw it before but it's interesting to say the least since it's kinda similar to some of the original Toon Disney commercials from back in the day...miss that channel :cry:

Action 52....yeah the commercial is as cheesy as the actual thing from what I can tell....

I'm pretty sure this is actual footage of BoneSnapDeez dressed as Santa Claus.

Of course there's the Paul Rudd SNES commercial

This Secret of Evermore commercial made a big impression on me

FuncoLand commercial, just because I miss the hell out of these stores

This was always a good one.. it's funny how they used to always trash talk each other back then. Imagine if a current PS4 commercial started with driving a truck over an Xbox? It would never happen these days :)

One of the early 3DO commercials (prob 1993 era) :

This blew me away when I was in middle school and it still sends chills down my spine.

Shit, maybe Sony had the perfect marketing team back then.

I think it's time we revived this thread about our favorite video game commercials across console generations. We all know the persuasiveness of a good ad campaign for video games. Some are outlandish and over-the-top. Some are realistic or shot with live-action. Others may portray the actual game, be it setting, highlights, and graphics. So if you think back to the commercials that showcased upcoming games, what are some of your favorites?

Mine personally is:
We Are ODST. A Live-action commercial that is awesome in all meaning of the word. I simply loved how they did this one, captured the atmosphere and made the life of an ODST believable and realistic. The narrative is awesome and I can remember shouting at the TV about how awesome the commercial was. And, probably for that reason, ODST has a warm spot in my heart.

A close second, is the Believe Campaign for Halo 3. I loved the details in this commercial, and think it's beautifully done.
