I didn't make it!
Hello gamers, I am currently writing a research report on advertising in video games and could really use some first hand opinions from gamers. As a gamer myself I have seen much more advertising and branding built in games in recent times and I want to get your opinions on the following issues (where possible please provide examples): 1) When do you think advertising ads to a game’s credibility? 2) When do you think advertising reduces a game’s credibility? 3) Has advertising or branding ever caught your attention in a game (good or bad)?Specific examples would be awsome. 4) When do you think advertising and branding in a video game is appropriate? When is it unappropriate? 5) What are your general thoughts\opinions of advertising in video games? Do you have any suggestions of how it could be improved? I really look forward to reading your responses. Cheers.
