20 Vintage Gaming Ads Full of WTF

90s gaming ads.

Let’s be real, video game ads during the past few years have been boring. Publishers expect you to be wowed by weekly trailers and pretty graphics.

Back in the 90’s games didn’t have the luxury of realistic graphics. So, they relied on witty and often insane imagery to catch your attention the good ol’ fashioned way.

In this feature we’re going to travel back in time to the 1990’s, a time when games were simple and even Nintendo used hot chicks to sell its products.
