Research showed that gamers nearly always consulted a trusted source before buying a game. We decided to create fanboy videos with a creative twist. Who better to endorse Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare than the experts - war hungry world leaders? A viral video review of the game was “created” by Cuban President Fidel Castro who being a mercurial capricious dictator loved some aspects of the game and found parts of it unlikable. The videos were seeded on the internet in gamer sites and forums where they quickly spread. The result? Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare became the #1 selling Game of the Year with over 9 million units sold. CASTRO | 2008 | No-Award
