    They are fine in any game as long as they fit the surrounding and the theme of the game. Oh and as long as they don't spy on me and the game is cheaper than a game without advertising.

    finally it depends on the game, and these games wont be to much badly impacted.

    And so long as we don't have any "unskippable" previews of upcoming games or adverts like in DVDs. That would really disuade me from purchasing any further games.

    Ok, this IS where the ads belong, sports games. Because thats what sponsors a lot of these things in real life.
    What I am against is ads in games like BF2142, QET and the like, where....they really have no place.

    It will just be another way to make more money and not benefit us in any way.

    I bet it will be irrelevent to the game in some cases, game prices and support wont be that much better (if at all) and there will be some sort of spyware to see if the adds are effective.

    Yes i'm that optimistic.

    If it brings the game prices down then im all for it. I'd much rather pay $30 for a game full of ads then $50 for a game without ads.

    God-**** in-game ads....seriously how bout they just make profit on the game itself? I wonder how BF2142 did.....

    In-game ads will only ensure patches/extra content/future maintenance which you would think would come standard on any great-selling game....or so you'd think....

    I dont mind if a restaurant at the side of a racetrack is a mcdonalds instead of a mcdoonalds, but ads thrown in completely out of place (Anarchy Online, PlanetSide I'm looking at you, had your ads ever worked properly ;p) get on my nerves pretty solidly.
