40+ Sexist 80s & 90s Video Games Adverts

They say sex sells – hell yes!

Back in the old days advertising was a little different. You could get away with most things, from sexism to racism – anything went back then.

You only have to look at some of our previous posts to see what we mean, from damn-right offensive advertising and even legit cocaine adverts.

In the 80s video games were still quite a new phenomenon so how did video game companies target their demographic audience? By demographic we mean horny teenage boys festering in their bedrooms! With scantily clad ladies straddling the latest arcade machine that’s how.

Back then Sega and co thought that video games were a ‘man thing’ and women should only be allowed near the joystick if they were wearing bikinis,or dressed like a sexy fighter pilot or racing driver. Even then they were considered some kind of obstruction which distracted the man while he was playing Operation Wolf, how dare they!

They say sex sells – hell yes!
