Warning: Rant incoming...
Why do so many Games not match their ads?
OK, so I'm playing a free-to-play and of course there are the ads. I don't mind the ads; someone's got to pay for the game, you know?
So, yeah, I'll watch the ad for the game coins or diamonds or whatever.
But what gets me,
what REALLY gets me,
is when I watch an ad and think, “hey, that looks like a pretty fun game.”
Except, the actual game is nothing like the ad.
The ad makes it look like a pull-pin type game and it's actually a match three. Or the ad will have a Pokemon Go feel, but you don't actually use your phone to gather augmented dragons in real life.
Is it too much to ask that the game I see in the trailer is the same game I'm going to play when I download????
I don't think so.
What about you? Do you play any free-to-plays? Do you watch the ads? Do you download any games from the ads? Or is it just me?
Let me know in the comments!
