bobby kotick: like a low level james bond villain that works with computer games

Read this horrendous shit.

Maybe he's fucking joking? Or it's a joke website? Who even knows?

In other news: does anyone else remember when Modern Warfare 2 died for our sins?

the punchline is that i'd also do it in real life

Ben says (23:57):
anyway so like
on ROME TOTAL WAR
when you capture a settlement
you can either just occupy it
or enslave half the population
and send them to yr other cities
or execute 75% of the population
and like
if i capture like a roman city or a greek city or something
i just occupy it
but if i capture some barbarian gaul or german or briton town or something
i'll enslave them all or execute them
i'm a fucking snobby racist
in a computer game
against my own race

Not alot of good games adverts

But here is one: http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/699996/Assassins-Creed-II-Magazine-Ad-Best-Game-Ad-Ever.html

It doesn't take alot to make an interesting advert. This is what studying illustration and hanging out with graphic designers has taught me. But so rarely do good graphic design and games meet.
