They Just Don’t Make Video Game Commercials Like The Old Days
Before there was the internet, we had to find out about new video games through either newspaper ads, magazines, and especially TV. Watching children's television in the 90's was always entertaining. Besides watching your cartoons, the real awesomeness started when the commercials came on.
Video Game commercials have such a serious tone to them these days, because they are being marketed to the older audience. When NES, SNES, Genesis, etc, were around, they were being marketed to kids. How do you impress kids? CRAZINESS! Weird cartoon, flashy stuff, and showing the video game itself. 90's video game commercials were PANDEMONIUM!
