Dead Space 2 Your mom hates this

Do you all think this is a stupid way to advertise a game?
It looks like they are intentionally advertising this to people under 17 and at the same time putting video games in bad light when there is already lawsuits about games, their content, and how it can be sold.

I don't think it will be effective, but I see nothing wrong with it...

it seems like they could have done a better job advertising it. It just sounds dumb.

I think it's a dumb way to advertise, calling unnecessary attention to the violent video game haters out there.. but it doesn't make the game suck any less.. I'm still probably gonna buy it.

I'll still buy it/rent it at least. But I agree that it does call attention to that crowd.

i thought it was one of the most interesting and hilarious advertising strategies ever. i love it. and i don't think it's necessarily marketed towards kids, just everyone that knows middle-aged upper class white women don't know **** about ****.

my friend got the collectors one (idr if it had a name), but the "life sized" plasma cutter was the most hilarious let down i've ever seen. he was so excited to get it, and it was tiny as ****. i laughed so hard... so don't get collectors unless you want a tiny as **** plasma cutter with ****ty lights on it lol. the game itself is really good, according to him. he likes the multiplayer too. review of the game from GT:

I tried playing the first one last night. I barely beat the first level before I put in Halo Reach

edit: not saying it's a terrible game, it's just ****ing scary.

The "moms" look a little old to have kids under 17 years old.

The game is good. You definitely need to play Dead Space and understand the story before moving on.
