Videogame ads from 72 to 96

This came from reddit, but though I'd repost here.

This guy put together an album of all the video games ads he could find from 1972 to 1996: https://imgur.com/a/gPEEe

this actually made me flashback to a desktop game I had years ago that was even crap in the 80's

can pick one up for €28 but even at that price it's too much

I love old marketing ads, cheesy,risqué, bizarre. Everything is so homogenized and formulaic now in comparison.For me I think it peaked around the early 90s.
