Not if they throw a ton of cash at the developer so they can make a better game.

It does if i pay $50 for an online service and still have ads thrown at my face.

It doesnt anger me. If anything it gives the game a sense of atmosphere...the only time it would piss me off, is if its blatantly everywhere. (See Trans-GMC-formers the movie)

That pissed me off to no end, every shot was a GMC commercial especially the one at the dam. Also the Mt. Dew Transformer was an abomination unto Cybertron.

The whole movie was an abomination. I knew exactly how it would play out the moment I heard Michael Bay was directing it. They should have called it what it really was: "Shia Labeouf and the GMC Robots".

Optimus Prime didn't even make an appearance until 1 hour into the movie. How are you going to make a Transformers movie that revolves around the humans? Hollywood, is there no childhood memory you can't crap on?

I think it shouldn't anger us if the ads were reasonably placed. For example, maybe a Sprite advertisement could be put on a soft drink dispenser machine.

It is rather awkward when I am playing Battlefield 2 and there is a big Nvidia sign in the middle of the battlefield.
