What are your thoughts on In game Ads?-d9.jpg

I was playing Rainbow Six Vegas 2 today and I notice a District 9 ad. I was kinda shocked that an old game had an ad for a new movie.

I dont mind ads if they dont go crazy.

They're in burnout paradise, forza 3 and a few other games. They bother me because i'll be racing and I look up and i'm like wtf is that? and it's a billboard with BK or a movie. Other than that, ads are more annoying to see on the 360 dashboard than in game.

If it reversed the trend of shitty DLC in the industry I would welcome it.

Meaning if the marginal revenue from in game ads made companies stop being asshats about cutting content and making it day 1 DLC or anything else like that.

This won't happen, so on the large part I'd rather not have in game ads. The only time I think they're acceptable is a realistic setting. Rainbow Six makes sense. But if I ever see a Pepsi/Coke/etc ad in a fantasy game, I will rage.

I usually don't mind them, but Madden 10 showing an ad before every snap bothers me. Enough so that I won't buy next year's game.

Yeah, it's a banner ad that appears as your players line up for the snap.. I'm sure EA thinks it adds to the realistic TV-like presentation, but in reality it's annoying and a bit insulting after paying $60 (I paid $35) for the game.

I don't mind them in racing games or sport games where they make sense to have ads, but if you put a coca cola ad in something like God of War, well you've got a problem with me.

I think if you bouht the game any adds in the game should make the game cost you less. Those adds are extra revenue for the developer of the game.
