    I actually played Push Over (AKA its full title: This Game Ain't No Push Over) and got so far in the game that I actually reached a level that was unwinnable due to a glitch! It sucked! Good thing I was only renting it and got my money back from the rental place when I showed them the level.

    Wasn't Cool Spot reskinned as Fido Dido over here? I have distinct memories of being very disappointed on purchasing Cool Spot from my local import store and playing it to find the exact same game as one I already had! Same thing happened with one of the Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle games. Poor show!

    The McDonalds treasure Island game for Genesis was also great. was pretty hard too.

    Probably doesn't count as an advergame, but I immediately thought of Carles Barkley's Shut Up and Jam! The mere existence of the fan-made sequel "Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden" is reason enough for it to be mentioned in every article ever, regardless of relevancy.

    I remember Cool Spot, fun times fun times.

    The Doritos Crash Course games are both a lot of fun, IMO, and they're free!

    Alan Wake had some absolutely ridiculous moments of blatant advertising. The first time you see batteries the game makes sure that you know what they're Energizer brand. Not to mention that one level starts with a massive Vorizon billboard occupying half the screen.

    Fact: Salvador Dalí designed the Chupa Chups logo.

    How could you guys forget the advergame of Dikembe Mutombo 4 1/2 weeks to save the world from old Spice??
  • RODTheMaster - December 18, 2013 12:08 p.m.

    Exactly! Dikembe warmed the hearts of millions!

    I still play M.C kids with my children to this day. it's an awesome game with an amazing soundtrack ( theme 2 in particular). I'll never forget... my dad really liked that game too. it got pretty hard later on, and there was no saves or password. he was up late playin it, got to the end, then left the machine on and went to bed. I woke up the next morning, saw the machine on and not knowing my dad had done that on purpose, I turned it off. he was PISSSSSED

    Sneak King is one of the most frustratingly bullshit games i ever played, its challenge missions were massive bullshit. Good list, though im surprised Pepsi Man isnt here
  • Redeater - December 18, 2013 3:29 p.m.

    Yeah I was going to call bullshit on that entry. That Chester Cheetah game was infinitely better than the pile of crap that was Sneak King.
  • Cyberninja - December 18, 2013 8:59 a.m.

    What about Pepsiman

    How'd you forget Chex Quest?!?! I loved that game.
  • FoxdenRacing - December 18, 2013 9:19 a.m.

    If I had to guess, because it wasn't a made-from-scratch game like these; it was a map/sound/skin pack for Doom, not unlike the tens of thousands of WAD files made by fans to do everything from swap in Star Trek sounds to create whole new campaigns, expansion-pack style.
  • jason-kilthau - December 18, 2013 8:50 a.m.

    I loved Cool Spot on the Genesis when I was a kid! I was just thinking about this game the other day trying to remember the exact name.
