Really? Product placement is awesome? 😋

@Gunstar75 As if product placement has ever hindered gameplay...Have you ever played any of the burnout, SSX games? Still turned out great. Even GTA and Fallout games have placements loosely based on reality, still great games.

Product placement warrants a "meh" at best. I'm not sure I've ever seen it referred to as "awesome."

Personally, Monster usually gives me the shits. Here's hoping Kojima dials back the realism on that one...

Gunstar7510d ago

Lol, it is awesome! Any other time, any other game, product placement is either a non-issue or slightly annoying. But here, in this over-the-top humorous world Kojima has built, seeing a Monster energy drink just makes me smirk. It's all in good fun. Along with seeing Geoff Keighley bidding the player farewell while humorously gesturing "U" "C" "A," and Norman Reedus nervously keeping his back to the camera during pee breaks, seeing Norman Reedus bust out a refreshing can of Monster is just going to put a smile on my face.

Only a fanboy would love pointless, blatant product placement...

Car ads in a racing game is one thing, even realistic. Monster Energy Drink in a mysterious dystopian open world game? Gimme a break.

RememberThe35711d ago

So you've never played a Kojima game. Cool.

His games always have product placement.

jambola11d ago

cos as we know
in a dystopian world
all things vanish

ChrisW10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

No, not all of his games have product placement.

They better have some warnings in the game. Some idiot kids about to chug Monster and get themselves in the news.

Like tv commercials give warnings when red bull gives your wings eh? Not the sharpest tool in the sheed, are ya?

Notellin10d ago

I don't see any similarities between the two but sure we will go with whatever you were trying to say.

redey39d ago

No? Red bull jokingly promotes their energy drinks to give you wings, kids believe it - drink till death (your logic) - since kids see VIDEO GAME character drink energy drinks to restore energy and believe it likewise.

goldwyncq11d ago

Would there be Doritos as well? Kojima wouldn't want to disappoint the Dorito Pope.

ClayRules201211d ago

Haha, I’m with you on that. I want to see Cheetos too. Chester Cheetah’s a cool cat.

JustTheFax10d ago

Maybe there will be some drywall to punch!

Kojima makes you drink Monster energy in real life

SolidGamerX11d ago

Veneno10d ago

Veneno10d ago

I take it back. The Jolt gum is awesome!!!!
