Nice! A Benjamin Franklin quote in a boob discussion.

 

Good one! (Now I have to think of a Lincoln quote... Four score and seven boobs ago?)

Call it an anthropological experiment or something.

I wouldn't even have brought it up if it hadn't been thrown in my face by the background ads.

Ramifications of collected data be damned, we are scientists. Blame the game not the players.

Or some such manure.

     You're not far off..   It does appear that so many are chasing after the pixel graphic games, while ignoring content and actual gameplay.. I could care less about fancy dancy special effects of spells and combat.. That is only eye candy.. Same can be said with the sex appeal devs use to attrack the kids.. I don't want eye candy, I want brain candy..  If I wanted eye candy I'd just simply download pictures for that..

There is nothing wrong with a bit of augmentation, next you will be claiming they have too much augmented make up on. I have had to put up with below par MMO's for the last few years, the least they can do is sort out some eye candy for me. :)

the leading vote on this ad-hoc poll is Oh Really?

This is something you may want to discuss with the advertisers MMORPG.

Apparently they're too evolved for your client's base advertisements.

Tits are the playthings of the past.

You should take this as an insult guys.

The adds are basicly saying "us marketing guys think gamers are all awkward nerdy male virgins"

Nope, they're saying "sex sells" as it always has. Why change a running system? After all, it's a business.

I think you may be onto something. Of course I've sampled all that is on the advertiser's menu. Or of course anyone would say that.

a man will click it cause he wants that, a woman will click it cause she wants that....Now, look at the PWI closely, nice jewlry, great hair, good outfit, tattoo. took me a min to notice anything but good boobage, until mine walks by and likes the outfit and wants the jewelry -_-...so yeah they put more in those adds then just sex. just a good number of us don't see anything more there (yes there are female gamers but it is more of a guy thing...hot girls are just more awesome when they do it to).

Qualifiers for failing to deliver on story (in a supposedly story driven MMORPG):
If my character starts out ship wrecked on a beach.
If my character has amnesia; But, is also somehow the chosen one.
If my character has a place of origin that they will likely never set foot in until mid-high level.

You definetly see more boobage on games advert than you do on "non geek" interests. Sure you may see this in a car advert or something but not as many as marketing guys think "hey women buy cars too" or "hey I own a car and have a sex life, lets do a campaign based around how our car can enhance your family life". Basicly advertising works by selling you the thing they want to sell AND another thing they think you dont have. So there us a conception that gamers are mostly male and mostly single.

Or that most gamers like hot chicks.

 

And on the car issue, most people buying new cars, at least in America, are college students and family people - they are looking for an economical car or a sporty car. Sex doesn't sell that for multiple reasons - one big one being that's hard to sell your Mom or Wife on the idea when the commercial is sex.

However, Mom and Wife aren't often involved in the car show experience, and as a result you have the booth babes all over those.

 

Is beer a geek activity? How about football? NASCAR?  No, it's not about geek or non-geek, but about who the primary and secondary audience are. It's about who's spending the money and who's approving/allowing the expense.

 

Using sex to sell can sometimes backfire on some audiences. For example, I'm quite sure that most people here have seen and simply rolled their eyes at Evony ads. Conversely, somewhere out there,is a demographic that falls for it.

As long as the thread remains clean, in the sense there's nothing bare/NSFW/excessive (use judgment), then it's acceptable enough. Just use judgment.

Recent ads? Where have you been?  It's not just mmorpg though it's the gaming industry and marketing in general.  Every once in awhile people make a thread about it like it's something new.  We were about do for one.

 

I made a thread awhile back, over a year ago I think, of some game art advertised here that showed a male characters pubes. To me that was a little much but some people liked the picture.  To each his own.

 

Personally, I don't buy a game based on cover art or flashy marketing ads.  I'm more interested in a features list.  These ads must work on someone though or they wouldn't use them.

Can't we use selected videos, instead?

Hmm, no, I suppose not. Harumph.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.
