Please post the reasons why you like the ads. Personally I like their cheeky sense of humour, not taking themselves too seriously.

I really don't appreciate them any more than any other ads. They are just an ad trying to sell stuff. I'll admit the artwork put into the "most anticipated" banner is well done as well as the one with the armored girl on the left side.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I think the "laugh out loud" reaction once they clicked on the ads and watched the video is the first and only honest reaction to them.

 

Was thousands of people laughing with them in the chat.

Thank you.

 

I really appreciate when people make it easy for me to know who I should place on ignore. That way I don't have to find out later I should have done it earlier.

 

If you don't understand why I'd place someone on ignore for liking the overwhelming verging on pornographic ads on this site, they probably don't understand what integrity is. Also, if I want to yank my pencil, I don't do it in video games. They have websites created specifically for my pencil.

I always thought it was odd to have any form of attraction or sexuality in video games, unless the video game is literally pornographic or a dating-sim. I absolutely loved Tokimeki Memorial for the SNES, because it was a dating Sim game. Attraction is key, and I certainly wouldn't mind chestiness or sexuality in games like those because that is the essence of gameplay (love, passion, dating).

But when a game is designed to murder thousands of innocent goblins as if their life is as unimportant as an insect? Why would I want to see boob or ass? I don't equate smashing heads to getting horny. I am sorry if I am in the minority among males, but I prefer characters with personality, great art style, or reasoning for their sexual exaggeration. (A woman whose character is a seductress, enchantress, prostitute, etc. would make plenty of sense to be busty or sexually appealing.)

Of course, I also would prefer more believable characters. I'd love a RPG where the main character is an ugly fat guy with a heart of gold and confidence to match, and the best character is an ugly fat whore who makes you think "Who would ever pay for THAT?" but you get a real shocker when you realize people would not only pay, they'd pay a lot for her. Why? Because real life has a lot of disgusting and depraved people in it. That is part of a good, convincing story.

 

I vomit whenever the hero is a stereotypical semi-buff half-emo white male with a cocky attitude, mixed with a little jerk to handle murdering everyone you fight, but just nice enough to not be a psychopath about it. You know...the same hero that appears in every game:

Man, just take a few steps back and chill out a bit, maybe download an ad blocker.

 

As for the ads themselves, I think that they're actually very similar to many other game ads and banners shown on this site. Right now I'm looking at a Neverwinter ad behind my screen where you can look into the bossom of the female divine cleric, right through her outfit.

I think there is little difference in the "attractiveness factor" between ads that (literally) cover up the suggestive themes a bit and other ones that just flat out embrace them.

This kind of thing works to get people (read: men) to click their ad, it simply works because sex is sex and it's an important part of what drives us in our lives. That said, I think the ad makers could do a better job, because boobs aren't even the most important thing that attracts men.

The scarlet blade ads do have some witty message that sort of suggests they're not taking it too seriously themselves, in that respect they're better than the cliché slogans (or lack of) in other ads.

 

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

I appreciate how it brings in tons of ad revenue for MMORPG.com so that we can gain access to more beta-keys, more give-aways and hence gain more members.

I like how it makes the PC police cry like someone murdered their first born..... People take themselves far too seriously.

They need new ones soon. They should know that as well. It has been the same 6 models since launch, wearing the same 6 outfits. It doesn't get my attention any more.

i like them cause i need to keep my windows closed now, cause a neighbors asked me a few days ago, why i was looking at henti sights.

course i 1. wanted to know what he knew i was looking at for 2. said it was part of my master plan to corrupt the neighborhood.

that aside, really how long has we seen nothing but these adds, now its not just a matter of what they are anymore its also a matter of im sick of seeing them can i get a change of pace PLEASE

F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used to
Proper Grammer & spelling are extra, corrections will be LOL at.

your neighbour was peeping? i would have called the cops

as long, as its legal, what im doing with my computer, is a private matter

and the fact, that he knew the term "hentai", would make him suspicious too

If you get distracted by the adds you should get your hormone balance checked.. I've seen much worse in blockbuster holywood movies and series and nobody seems to fuss about that..

As far as i'm concerned, the adds don't bother me more than adds for other games. I look at the site content, not the adds.
