Gaming Ads: Rocket Science Games, Rockstar Games, and Backfilling #8

Rocket Science Games was founded in 1993 with a goal of making cinematic video games. It hired people from the movie, comic book, and computer industries but its games tended to review in the average range and they did not sell well. Only five of its games were released before it closed in 1997.

Rockstar Games in this case refers to the publishing label Take -Two Interactive created in 1998. Founded by Sam Houser, Dan Houser, Terry Donovan, Gary Foreman, and Jamie King, Rockstar Games has become one of the most popular companies in video games and its name is often associated with high quality games, most notably the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) titles. Today many of its games are developed by Rockstar North, formerly known as DMA Design, the Scotland-based company Rockstar Games acquired in 2002. However, it has published games from many other developers in the past such as Max Payne (Remedy Entertainment), L.A. Noire (Team Bondi), Smuggler's Run (Angel Studios), and State of Emergency (VIS).

I only have two ads each for Rocket Science and Rockstar so I'm backfilling a few more this week; two for Acclaim and one for Accolade.
