Cheeky Gaming Ads: Vintage Japanese Flyers

Before the world went nuts and people turned into whiny-ass vanguards of social righteousness, video game advertisements were frequently quite awesome.

“I just dropped in- to see what condition my condition was in.”


Presented without comment.


Where’s a GameBoy camera when you REALLY need one?
