Well I find it them tasteless, and its even more in your face as you can avoid these type of commercials in real life. Todays commercial industry doesn't seem to have much restrictions of how they promote things. Might aswell have them buttnaked. I thought it was maybe some simulation game at first (then noticed RTS/sim).

You're the first person to reply who seems to agree

I agree too, but I've talked this topic to death in so many other places (Mata Hari cover art, anyone?) that I thought I'd let other people have a go at it this time around.

I guess I understand. I usually take the opposite action; debates that interest me tend to fade out before I've even began to grow tired of them so I generally jump on the next most similar one to come along.

With the Mata Hari cover, though... Well I saw the cover without mentally connecting it with the game. Having read some of the background I already knew it was about a historical figure who professionally took her clothes off. The fact that she's was (or may have been) a spy easily makes her a great candidate as the subject for an Adventure Game. (Spies and Adventure Games go together like.... Detectives and Adventure games!).

Look at it this way; how often will the "Sex Sells" approach to marketing actually be as educational as this? (Unless it's for sexual education, ofc).

This reminds me; have I mentioned, yet, how much I like your boobies? The ones in your avatar, I mean?

OK I've spent some time with the Mata Hari thread and I think I'm more inclined to agree with you, now.

Ha ha ha, that was great. They should run with that as well in an attempt to lure all conceivable target groups.

And I just found another parody ad, being used for real by PopCap. Awesome.

When you thought it couldn't get any worse… I saw a new version of the ad today. Same model, but this time the picture shows her about to remove her dress.

Okay, that's crossing the line. There's a difference between looking provocative and just plain near-porn.
