It’s the weekend, and you know what that means!
Well, OK, maybe you don’t. So let’s just look at funny YouTube commercials, shall we?
In the spirit of that commercial show that aired last Sunday — and the football game that went with it, I guess — I’ve found some of the most… uh, “interesting”… commercials for MMO games out there, with topics running the gamut from basketball to stalkers to beautiful Chinese swordsmiths.
Yeah, that’s right. So let’s take a look, shall we?
Crafting or bust(s)
Here’s an ad for a Chinese MMORPG, which apparently boasts of a crafting system where failure is always an option. But so long as your sister — we’ll go with that, OK? — pulls you back from oblivion and sends you a note… and the sword you were trying to craft… and, uh…
Well, it had me in tears. The good kind.
Gotta be the shoes
Though the title claims that this is a Nike commercial, there’s a URL to an actual game site that appears operational. It’s all a little surreal, though — or is that actual gameplay? The cel-shaded graphics aren’t terrible, per se, but –
– wait, what is that at 0:46? Seriously, WTF is going on there? I’m out.
There might be a game associated with this commercial, but let’s be frank — you’re not paying attention after the first minute, are you? The first listed comment pretty well sums it up:
Here’s a clip that features a game you might have heard of — Ragnarok Online — as well as being in English. That just makes it easier to understand its sad and pitiful commentary on gamers.
“I can’t chase you — but I can fight for you!” Because girls are bad at MMORPGs, yo, and need a man to tank for them. If I were her, I’d get a restraining order filed, stat.
