This thread has been hugely entertaining. I can actually remember seeing several of these adverts back in 90s magazines and I still find it hard to believe that some of them ever existed. It's horrendous to think that these adverts were ever acceptable on any level but it's reassuring to know that this gooseberry fool would not fly anymore.

Looking back, it makes total sense why the public image of gaming was "fat nerds in basements" for so long. I couldn't see why back in the day. :lol:

Yep, the same thing occurred to me :lol:


You can really see why videogame took so long to shake the immaturity tag.
