Can We Give Alan Wake An Award For Best Ads?

Kotaku writes: "Alan Wake is not a shoe-in for Game of the Year 2010, but these ads for the exclusive Xbox 360 thriller are so lovely they deserve some sort of high-caliber 2010 praise."

Awesome ad ideas. I need an Alan Wake sundial watch like the in the pic :P.

Sun-dial thing is very clever.

Too bad nobody can figure out WTF the ad is advertising.

Crap ads. Clever pictures/idea but useless advertisements. Especially billboard advertisements which are only viewed quickly.

I'm glad you're not working on advertising...

I need to play Alan Wake. A demo would do wonders for sales.

I'm a final year marketing student.

Advertising works best when it is designed to create awareness. Doing something clever with the brand hidden in the bottom corner won't create too much awareness as the audience doesn't get a chance to understand the advertisement.

As I said, they're clever ideas but work terribly as advertisements.

tails has a point.

first thing I though of when I saw the main image wasn't a video game, it was...too vague to be anything

but i'd say its more to do with with positioning / size of the Alan Wake logo in relation to the image than anything else

as he said, very clever, but badly edited and laid out =/

No but you can give them a note stating that these ads suck balls because it failed to help Alan Wake sell better than it already has.
