The real ad does not say September 11, it says "The only thing worse than the weight of the world on your shoulders is the weight of the moon." Everything else between the real ad and the fake one anon posted is the same though. New York City is among the most famous city skylines so it makes sense it would be used for the image, though obviously the twin towers stand out now.

that's probably because the 2nd starting from bettom right is Jacques Chirac, a guy who was the president of france for 12 years.
the authorities probably got triggerd real hard to see him alongside some dictators. i fail to see what he is doing there tho...
besides the incident of france not getting involved during the civil war in Rwanda in 94', letting people chopping down eachother with machetes for some ethnical reasons, French wasn't (direcly) involved in massive civilan casualties or waging war somewhere during this period...

fun fact: he died today.
RIP big man, your enthousiasm for the booze during the agricultural centre will not be forgotten.

What a weird way to market Final Fantasy. I'm not opposed to marketing a Final Fantasy game with humour as opposed to a straight-faced cinematic trailer, but very few of those monsters are ones I recognise from the game. The monster selection isn't even a particularly notable element. At least those FFIV ads where the kid ignores his Dad for an entire year (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpXFjZeA9Ps) are somewhat representative of a selling point of the game. These print ads are just odd.

While its fun and nostalgic checking out these ads, when I was a kid in the 80s and 90s I FUCKING HATED most video game ads. Only getting maybe 3 1'' screen shots that were fuzzy at best was so fucking annoying. And the back of game boxes were not that much better. With no youtube back then most of the time when you played something you had no fucking clue what you were about to get in to unless a magazine did a lengthy review with lots of larger images. I really don't miss that shit.
It was so fucking nice when around the mid 90s people started posting photos of games on their personal sites and you could get an idea of what the fuck something was, it felt like a whole new world of gaming opened up to me since stuff I passed over not knowing what the fuck it was and didn't want to waste my money turned out to be cool stuff worth trying.

Anyone have ads for Working Designs games? I remember they would always include snarky jokes in the copyright text / fine print ("if you're reading this, you need a life, or a girlfriend, or both"). Also if someone has the print ad for Dragon Warrior VII, in the border of the ad were various screenshots of the game, and hidden in those screenshots were bits of text that formed a URL for the "Dragon Warrior VII Secret Site".
