I agree. I love Live Action commercials and trailers. Halo have been doing them since Halo 3, I believe, and they get better and better.

Yeah they've been getting better and better at this shit. I remember when that "Mad World" trailer (not live action but not in-game) for GoW came out, I decided to buy the game almost purely because of that.

And the halo ones have all been dope. They're cool to watch, but at the same time they are really misleading.

Anyone that buys a game from the ad alone deserves to be ripped off

Actually yeah your point was alright on its own, I just wanted to display that I hate 'live action' adverts.

What a stupid term, 'live action'. It's not even live.

They can be silly, but people are usually only fooled once, and usually when they're little kids. Well-done ones are fun to watch, though.

I think video game companies assume that people who play video games regularly already know the franchises and would look up the game online anyway. The live action commercials are aimed at people who don't play video games regularly.

In any case, I like them. So are pretty interesting.

Blatant false advertising. No double rainbows in breakout.

I think they are dumb because the only things games have going for them are their gameplay and live action commercials show about 0% of that.

Removing a style of commercial because it doesn't show gameplay will not improve actual gameplay. If you want to learn about that, break out a proper review/preview site. Commercials are hype-builders, and some of them are actually well done.

Actually, yeah I definitely like them. They add a cool "theatrical" element to the game, and as previously stated it's not like it's hard to find gameplay, preview articles, etc. online.

Yeah, well, that meme was bought out by Microsoft

I'm sure there was crying by grown men over that game, though. 

Somewhere. 

Perhaps. 

Try San Francisco, they like to cry there, and they like rainbows.
