1up hates ads too! Good for them!

Today, 1up released a new article in their series of “If we don’t make a new article vaguely related to gaming, we’re going to lose our freakin’ jobs!” articles. This one focuses on the truly abhorrent video game ads that have been spewed forth from such visionaries as John “Better Hair Than Nex” Romero, Pre-Halo Bungie and a ton of peripheral manufacturers.

Compared to these ads, the recent PS3 ads are truly works of art. Perhaps not good art, but at least they’re better than these wretched things …

Are there any ads that you absolutely hated that didn’t make the list? Let us know in the comments. As usual, double points if you include pictures of your hot sister.

I'm Nex. I used to work here but my love of cash led me to take a gig with Wired. I still keep an eye on the 'toid, but to see what I'm really up to, you should either hit up my Vox or go have a look at the Wired media empire.
