It goes to show you how advertising has changed over the years. Back then, people read advertisements and they expected readers to do so. Now they just want that one snappy image, a bright color or an easily translatable visual. I cant imagine sitting down in "the day" and reading that unless I already had an interest in it. I guess everyone's attention span has changed.

>how advertising has changed over the years
I think, for better or worse, advertising is the true mirror of the modern human condition. If you really want to understand people, watch their commercials.

It does look like the scanner was dying or something, doesn't it?

>> No.2331204

I dont know, sir. Its not just this style of advertisement where I have seen items sold in this manner. Look at the Atari photo in OP's picture for example. It isnt a paragraph or done in an article style, but thats still alot more words than you may find now adays.

It seems to me its more about the visuals these days. That isnt to say its a bad thing. Just the way we view things and react to them has changed. We are a faster generation. Instant gratification, capture the moment in one image type of thinking.

It seems advertisement changed once the 90s came around.

that was also the box art for ultima 2, which I no longer have, unfortunately

ultima 2 was an interesting one, because while it wasn't really a great 'game' it was an amazing sandbox (like all ultimas) and it was definitely a direct inspiration for chrono trigger

even the 5 time periods are roughly the same, though ultima has "Legends" instead of CT's floating-castle 'glory of magic' age

It was this style of "extreme" opinion that I think caused the bounce back to more subdued opinions we see now adays. That whole era was "extreme". Anything to shock, to break the boundaries, to gross out. People also didnt complain back then, however.

I wonder if at some point it will swing back the other way, and we will all be insensitive asslords again.

since when is controlling things by tilting a controller "ultra realistic" at all?

Back in the 90's we were all about new and ingenious ideas without thinking about how inconvenient or impractical they could be.

Take the virtual boy for example. You had to stick your head into a shitty visor. Was it comfortable? No. Was it practical? Oh hell no. But it made it to the market because it was a new thing.

Some of these ideas actually made it to market and were quite successful once we perfected the tech a little more and the games were built around using the controller, like the Wiimote for example. When you have a game built for a controller and you try to shoehorn motion controls, it's the recipe for disaster.

Some tech, however, like virtual reality, still has yet to become mainstream. I remember in the 90's virtual reality was the next big thing and everyone was sure it would be mainstream within years. Then we saw the tech wasn't there yet and we settled for first person shooters on a screen

Well, the advantage of motion controls over buttons notwithstanding, at least the Wiimote worked and worked well for what it needed to do.

Not that far ahead even if it had worked as promised. Not to mention flight sims were already 3D for the longest time and stuff like I, Robot led a niche existence.

1. Because the actual product (the video-game) is less visually impressive than modern games, where you can just use a screenshot of gameplay or a pre-rendered cut-scene.

2. Print ads were presumably given a larger proportion of the advertising budget, since other mediums of advertisement (youtube, twitch, let's-plays, banner ads on webpages, e-celebrities etc.) either didn't exist or were in their infancy.

>> No.2353670

Yeah, compared to vidya print ads today which are basically just serious poster like images

Hell, if you open up a magazine these days, the first half of it is literally just advertisements, and they request that you pay for this shit. They might as well pay you all the money for reading it.
