The Official Video Game Commercials Thread

After a delightful chat the other night in our Slack Channel, a great topic was brought up about hilariously cheesy video game commercials. After seeing that we didn't have a specific thread up yet, I decided that it would be a great idea to have a thread where we share, laugh and enthuse about some of the best/worst video game commercials!

To start things off, I give you one of my personal favorites The Legend of Zelda (NES). You can not go wrong with a cracked out guy running around screaming, "ZELDA!"

I also just stumbled across this... Banjo Kazooie Commercial, where they have intense movie narrator talking about how this may be the first interactive animated experience. Whaaaaaa!?


Anyways, don't be a stranger and share your memories with some of the strangest game commercials out there!

You want a GOOD video game commercial?

I could end the thread right here with this one.

Ok.

READY?


As a bonus, I only ever saw this commercial during the morning cartoons sometime in 1991 before school but you want cheese check this out.

Spot & Silver Surfer NES

My favorite Gameboy commercial was for Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins.
