    Paradise city and Burnout Paradise of Obama campaign fame.

    The connection is Barack Obama’s in-game billboards in Burnout Paradise


  10. The game on the right is Burnout Paradise by EA. In a track, you will see a hoarding which urges people to vote. I think there is also an Obama reference.

    Burnout Paradise and in game advertising.
    Obama had ads put up on the billboards in the game for the 2008 elections.


  12. Sruti

    the game burnout paradise had in-game adverts for obama.

    (is that it? or is there a more involved connection?)
