In game billboards and signs can be quite the thing. What are your faves? Link them up

for me, there‘s no topping this one [upl-image-preview url=//i.imgur.com/AKu79zU.png]

i’ve also always loved this blimp from Super Bomberman that appears to just be advertising the concept of fire [upl-image-preview url=//i.imgur.com/xzunG7p.png]


Aw man, can‘t wait to see some of these. I’ll have a think myself and post later, but the first thing that came to mind for me was the creepy Damon Hill billboard in Daytona USA with the moving eyes.

I like this sign in Let It Die. It casts alternating colors of light on the area as you fight the boss.

I wondered how long it‘d take for minmo to show up!! not long, turns out. I’m gonna have to take some real time to track down my faves, but here are a couple I like from Blue Stinger:

Blue Stinger is nothing if not a festival of billboards
I can't figure out why the next image is not showing up so here it is [as a link](http://www.seganerds.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/blue-stinger-christmas.jpg)

This holographic billboard in Sapphire always gets me. Look how many morphs it's got!

And here's a fun side thing - shane showed oh, deer! above. Back when we were doing the PlayStation Mobile version of the game, we thought we'd do the cool thing and put a Sony logo on billboards in the background, promoting the platform like various devs would do with genesis games. When we submitted it, we got a certification failure back from Sony accusing us of copyright infringement by using their logo. We felt like we were trying to do a cool thing! That's what you get for messing around with big companies I guess. Anyway we removed it, and it was no big deal, but it sure felt dumb! We still have that Sony billboard in some old iteration somewhere.

Minmo and hassy loom large in my mind[upl-image-preview url=//i.imgur.com/UUwpVI1.jpg]


@marlfuchs2#2168 The Marlboro ads in 80s arcade games were iconic. The Pepsi one in Pole Position was too.

oh my

I definitely would smoke marioros.

daytona has a ton of cool billboards, my favourite being the ‘dinosaur appeared’ one. I took photos of them all back when the ps3 edition came out but I think I’ve lost them 😩

Ridge Racer games always had excellent billboards, usually advertising other Namco games:

(hmm, those last two are coming out sideways and there’s nothing that can be done about it)

I love those namco ones!!

And these daytona ones are hot as heck!! I'm surprised I never saw that sonic one anywhere. I'm gonna be on the hunt as I play more stuff and just keep updating this thread forever.
