I've been playing a new game that is inundated with advertising. The city streets are covered with billboards and posters. As the game/levels load, I'm told what company to buy computers from, and what processors they should contain.

And I've read about games that actually check home servers to update their advertising each time you play.

These games are not any cheaper for their ads.

Is there anything that can be done about this? Should there be anything done? Is there any escape from marketing? In the future, will I have to watch commercials in-between my dreams?

Don't buy it and tell them why.
If you did buy it, don't buy that company's next title.
And tell your friends not to buy it either.

Take notice of the ads and don't buy whatever they advertise and tell them why.
And spread the word.

And there are some tricks to disable it -depending on the game, like adding some entries to your hosts file.
