    Default The Big Bang Theory

    There is a popular TV show about group of nerds.
    They collect comic books, card games, they're passionate with Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Star Trek, and general fantasy and sci-fi.
    They are also playing Dungeons and Dragons and World of Warcraft.

    Last thing- they play wow.

    After credits of each episode, there is a WB logo flashed on screen.
    That's right- Warner Bross, the owner of Turbine, and so, the owner of DDO.

    So, WB advertises Blizzard, instead of Turbine.

    Fail.

    Discuss.

    WoW pays them. Turbine just earns.

    And they are geeks, right? So they would play a geeky game like WoW, not a manly one like DDO...

    Mainstream cliche about mainstream nerds need mainstream MMO aka WoW, cause it attracts the mass and is/was present in mainstream media.

    p.s.: Discussion over.

    Note that's not the only MMO they play. Age of Conan also features, as does Star Wars: The Old Republic.

    I am pretty sure they would be happy to promote DDO, but Chuck Lorre and his writers are very probably not browsing the web for the most obscure online games. It would be up to Turbine to ask them. But their marketing/PR is really not their strongest division, I have never seen a single ad for this game but the one at Penny Arcade that brought me here years ago.

    There's also City of Heroes merchandise in display in the comic book store in several of the earlier episodes.

    They've featured episodes about WoW, Superheroes, ST:TNG, and even PnP DnD. *shrug*

    Hold on, isn't DCUO Warner Brothers related as well? That hasn't been mentioned, either... now I'm starting to wonder if there isn't some anti product placement type of regulation that they're avoiding by deliberately only mentioning stuff that they don't own?

    To nitpick: only one of the girlfriends is hot. But your comment should have read "They aren't real nerds, they have GFs"

    DC is a WB property, but DCUO is done through Sony.

    Well The Big Bang Theory isn't funny so it only makes sense that it features a game that isn't fun.
