But the companies could think of their own ad that would not go onto a billboard because of it being vulgar so something else, it lets them have a creative outlet that the game companies allow them to use through money and if they are good we can laugh. Though that is just my idea on how it should workRaphaelsRedemption said:No. If there is a place for fake advertising, such as billboards to create verisimilitude in a city-based game, let the developers be creative and make some clever spoof ads. Why shold ads invade my gametime? They already pervade everything else.

Please no advertsing!
A magazine of pornography... a dying medium of a dying genre (well, paid pornography at least). I feel sorry for them now.Billion Backs said:Aw, poor little Playboy is trying to save a dying medium. Boohoo.

But if it's just blatant in-your-face advertising with no connection to the plot or game world, it's utterly awful.
