I never had an Intellivision. I never even saw one. I saw these ads for Intellivision games, though. I didn’t know they were for Intellivision games, but I knew whatever games they were advertising were awesome. The He-Man one really just gets by on the strength of He-Man (which is, of course, a lot of strength), but the AD&D one is entrancing. Look at all the danger coming at that guy from every angle. I spent a lot of time looking at this ad in the 80s, wondering what would happen next and what I would do if (when) I was in his elfen shoes.
