    What a shame, Super Mario Sunshine was one of my favorite games, still is, silly commercial or not...

    yes you are. Shame, shame upon you all Games Radar. Loved the article though, too bad a lot of the movies have been removed.

    The NES commercial seemed oddly threatening.

    @GodlikeApe: Which dictionary would that be, OED and Webster's don't. @Wartooth909: Cunning satire, congrats you're a troll.
  • GodlikeApe - November 23, 2008 4:33 p.m.

    If you look in a recent dictionary, you'll actually see that gay is also defined as a negative adjective. Who knows the writer could be from 1940 and thought the advert was very 'happy'.
  • Wartooth909 - November 23, 2008 4:49 a.m.

    But being a bigot is so much easer then accepting people for who the really are. People who arnt just like me scare me to death.
  • jimmcc - November 22, 2008 12:46 a.m.

    @Wartooth909 The ad is clearly outrageous and I believe the writer is capable of writing something far more amusing and clever than just calling it 'gay.' The feature can be funny without singling out and insulting a minority group. It's 2008 and when someone calls a thing that's stupid, bad or ridiculous 'gay' they instantly sound like they're in junior high. Sorry to be pedantic but, you know, don't be a bigot.
  • jimmcc - November 21, 2008 10:24 p.m.

    Simply calling a commercial 'gay' does not a witty feature make. It puts you on level with an 11 year-old Youtube commenter. Now I'm all for embracing immaturity but it's got to actually be funny and not just tired and homophobic. You're better than that, Gamesradar.

    Clean is better than dirty, and dirty's meaner than clean!!!!!!

    BAM! Right in the FACE! lol.

    Wow, They don't make them that good anymore. I blame the diminishing popularity of LSD.

    Yeah I LOVED SMS but that was the gayest thing i've ever seen!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    The NES one scared me just a bit, the MS-DOS-5, wtf? What was so important about MSDOS5 ?
  • Turkeykilla7 - March 20, 2009 8:33 p.m.

    I Knew they would have the Original Japanese Zelda Commercial. The First time i saw it my jaw just dropped in amazment
  • Ironmaus - March 20, 2009 3:11 p.m.

    The new Xbox 360 ads with the slow-motion view of the creepy people with holes in their heads ALL qualify for this list. What is with Microsoft and their love of weird, weird shit?
