    Video game commercials that are 90s AF

    I love me some 90s cheese, so let's make a thread dedicated to video game commercials that are just dripping in the 90s. I'll start with two somewhat obscure commercials for Command & Conquer Red Alert that was aired on MTV.





    Notice how between the two there is exactly one second of actual gameplay footage. The rest is cutscenes and XTREME 90S!

    One thing that certainly was a running theme was how all the kids were obnoxious douchebags. It's like the commercial is saying "This could be you! YOU could be the obnoxious douchebag!"

    People went crazy went this ad came out. Made me want a NES (had only an Atari 2600 and a Sega Master System at the time).



    As for more classic 90s gaming ads:

    I'm not about to be pigeonholed as a kid of the 90s, okay. I'm a kid of the everfluffing god-damned millennium.

    Yeah, I'm gonna post this. It's not from the 90's, but it's 90's enough.



    Easily the best promo I've ever seen for a game, bar none.

    Yeah that's a good one. Here's another recent trailer that uses 90's aesthetics to great effect:

    What are you waiting for, huh!?



    Feel free to call.



    The last one may have had the cringe part down pat, but this next one might just be the top contender for the pure distilled 90s zaniness:

    Oh, and what would the 90's be without a guy in drag:

    This one is more of a commercial from the 90s than the most 90s commercial, but I liked the punch line.

    All this talk of generations reminds me that (A) I'm an 80's kid and therefore old and (B) there are adults born after Deus Ex.

    Maybe not a commercial per se, but close enough:
