I know they’re insensitive and tacky, but I have to admit that a part of me misses when games ads were off the walls like this.

    The hand of the guy holding the yellow Gameboy looks like it’s coming from a PS1 game lol

      I can’t figure out if it’s drawn or early 3d modeling that they decided to add to a Gameboy ad for some reason.

    Why not do these today? I think most gamers would laugh, which was the point.

      Being woke remains a good thing.

      It means being aware of societal challenges that exist and the historical context in which we live.

      The alternative is to bury ones head in the sand and say, “Everything is okay, question nothing.”

      I am thankful I am not simple enough to fall for the new monthly conservative slur in attempt to supress social awareness and change. It’s coming. The slurs are a silly game for the simple minded.

      There’s plenty of porn; I don’t need it trying to sell me a video game.
