These big budget game advertisements you see also bug me because I would much rather see all of the money used to make this go into making the actual product better. A general rule I have had for years has been to avoid games that have too much
advertising, as it generally seems like a red flag that more money wasn't spent on making the game better instead. It's not a full proof rule, but it has served me pretty well.
I understand that video games are trying to appeal to larger audiences these days, but this simply isn't the way to go about it. I'm all for fancy big-time promotional campaigns as long as it properly advertises the actual product, not just the name on the box. And generally these kind of ads concern me because it makes me start to think that the people making these games would much rather be working in other areas of the entertainment industry, another problem that I think has crept into video gaming in recent years. You want people to buy your sweet new video game? Put something in the actual video game that will make people buy it and put that into your commercial instead. Please, make the commercials be about the games again.
