*Unquestionably the worst house ad ever to appear in AMIGA POWER was AP30's poorly-judged Amiga Format Games Special. It featured the memorably senseless ad line "STOP RIGHT THERE! We're going to shatter your illusions about games... forever!" splashed over a drawing of three game characters bursting from the cover.
Leading contenders for this prestigious award included the Amiga Format Annual ad (featuring a laudatory quote from Stuart Campbell, entirely made up and with a typo),* the ad for AF53 ("Video games are killing pop music... Amiga Format brings you the mass murderers"), anything to do with Workbench (nobody CARED) and the Amiga Format Hardware Special ad (98% of the words tragically misspelt), but the Games Special's genius of banality swept it to victory.
