8 Fictional Videogame Products We Would Totally Buy IRL

The Grand Theft Auto games in particular are notorious for their in-game advertisements for fictional products. Every billboard and radio wave is home to an advertisement shilling some parody version of a real-world product. To be sure, when Grand Theft Auto V launches this fall, it will bring with it a whole new multitude of wonderfully inappropriate fictional product advertisements.
