Retro Gamevertising

Old School games infused in ads evoke nostalgia

Implications - Game advertisers are appealing to consumer nostalgia through the use of retro gaming themes in their advertising. By playing the nostalgia card, businesses are able to tap into consumers’ childhood interests, which allows them to connect and develop stronger, longer-lasting relationships with their customers. Nostalgia is one marketing tactic that doesn’t seem to be fading into the background anytime soon.
