    Great Game Trailers

    Most games these days have trailers. Some of them are great. This is the thread for those.

    You can define 'great' any way you wish: intro cinematics vs. original content, representative of the game or otherwise, gameplay footage vs. target renders vs. CGI, all that stuff is your call.

    A few to start us off with:


    Alien eat your heart out.


    The first minute is skippable. The reversal/retraction of the drill makes me wince every time.


    Love the music. There's another one out there set to 'Barra Barra' which is pretty awesome too.

    So that's where polygons per krundle comes from!

    For me, it's all about sci-fi games with a 2 in the title.
    Mass Effect 2:

    Starcraft 2:

    I've always loved the 2001 E3 trailer for Max Payne. (Video is horrible quality, couldn't find better)

    Intro to Dawn of War, one of my favourite pieces of CGI.


    This was featured on RPS not so long ago.

    I thought this was an excellent trailer



    And this was really well done



    Although in both cases it may just be that I love the music...

    Love this trailer, it's as messed up as the game is.






    Great mood and music in this one, especial that eerie melody in the last seconds of the video.

    The Mass Effect 2 launch trailer had copious amounts of (cool) bombast and music to match.

    Everything Fallout related. They're just great.
    Also, my favourite ones were the Eve trailers before they started the boring CGI.

    Love the Serious Sam HD, GTA IV and Assassin's Creed trailers. The latter reminds me of some of the great trailers that came out recently for Witcher 2, probably the best of which was "Hope":



    And say what you will about the game...

    Blizzard's oeuvre is generally top-shelf, but amongst it I'd have to go with the trailer/cinematic for the original World of Warcraft:

    While Borderlands ended up being a solid shooter, I'll always miss the game that was hinted in its initial trailer. I admire this for its simple construction and presentation of a truly alien world I would like to have seen:

    I appreciate that the trailer is just as anti-sensical as the game. Also beware of spoilers.


    And since other people seem to posting intros.

    More an intro than trailer, but completely frigging awesome either way. It's too bad it was better than the game itself.

    This thread is made for WiC.

    Especially the second one. I can't pinpoint what exactly makes Russian patriotic music vastly superior to every other country's...but it is.
