In Game Political Ads


Companies have integrated ads into video games for quite some time now, but this is the first time election campaign ads have been used in virtual reality games. Is this a good idea? Will it be effective? The ABC World News Webcast takes a look. Link to segment. Link to entire webcast.

I am with Tony here.
We get those bloody ads forced down our throat ALL THE TIME. You know why I use adblock and don't feel ashamed the tyniest little bit? It's not because I would not want to support good sites; it's because I can't stand it anymore. I won't take this messing with my unconsciousness if I can help it. I don't want to see or hear this nervous shite ever again. My mind has THE RIGHT to be left alone. We live with a constant stimulus overdose, and this sickens me. It makes me want to vomit. So for me, every ad I did not see or hear is the only ad I can and will accept. If I can't get rid of the ads (zapping away, adblock and so forth) I just won't consume the content around it. Same goes for games.
