Massive Incorporated Launches World’s First Video Game Advertising Network

Ads will be served during the game – they say it won’t distract from gameplay, and allows marketers to pin down the elusive 18-34 demographic.

When will these fuckers figure out that we don’t want to be advertised to? I have always enjoyed the lack of real advertising in games – it was the only visual entertainment left that didn’t have ads. What’s next? Ads in my sci-fi novels?

A message to all marketing personnel the world over: LEAVE US THE FUCK ALONE!! If you want us to buy your products, release demo units to the press and get someone to review it on /. – that’s all you need to get a geek’s attention.
