Over the past year, Evony has been under scrutiny (and for good reason) for their advertisements that feature scantily clad women and closeups of breasts to entice people to play their Civilization clone. Today, I saw an ad for Gala-Net’s Rappelz that seems to be following the same trends.
The ad starts off with “Like what you see?”, which I didn’t get a screenshot of in time. Next it proceeds to:
These ad campaigns are so cheesy, and I imagine they are getting clicks which is why they keep appearing. Nothing bothers me more than advertisements for games that don’t even tell me ANYTHING about the game. Is it a MMORPG or a strategy game? Why do I want to play it? I’m not going to click these ads to find out.
