Yeah? Glad you like it.
What exactly do you like to see in online ads? Rich video? Maybe interactive mini-games?
This is all feedback we can loop back to advertisers so they can hopefuly make more engaging ads

Might want to alter where the zombies hands are for part of it, basically looks like it's grabbing her tats and she is not impressed.

I like most gaming adverts as long as they don't stalk you like the Avatar one currently does. Agreed the Resi Ad is awesome!

Yeah the Avatar one is poor, if anything, when adverts don't make it clear to exit, it tends annoy me and puts me off the product if anything.
The AC2 scroll bar worked better mind and was simple to follow and kept it basic as possible and I did take notice of it far more than the Avatar one.

Please , please dissuade them from insisting on those awful mousewheel "pursuing" bar ads. They reflect very poorly upon a company that is responsible for disrupting my enjoyment of the site. Inclining me to think twice, when it comes to future game purchases.
What I think works well (in addition to the ad this thread is focussed upon), is the launch zones, WHERE they are updated with new interesting media, by-the-day as the countdown to release looms. They make a great hub, where you can get just that little more, to tithe you over till your game is out. I really like this feature.

Thanks for the feedback Machetazo. At the end of these campaigns I will be sure to pass this feedback on.

I'll second that about the ads that follow you, also the one's that expand when you roll over. Both of them really piss me off, and it should be conveyed to the publisher that accidentally clicking on their adverts does not mean I'm interested.
Also, the current PSP ad is FUGLY, but only because turquoise should be banned :P

I think some of the best advertising for games was COD: MW2 and Assassins Creed II
The buildup to Assassins Creed II was cleverly done; with a whole story leading up to it. If you haven't had a chance to see the prequel episodes to the game check them out here, they're pretty cleverly done, and if you've completed the game like me, they're incorporated into the story fairly well.
