    Trailer love

    A thread about trailers you haven't completely forgotten, trailers you watch from time to time, that got you in some way, "why I play" trailers and those who made you reinstall stuff. Possibly pc stuff. Fanmade stuff is ok I think.

    Also I haven't found any "awesome trailers" thread, sorry if this is kind of cyclical and redundant.

    I'll start



    made me play hotline miami:D

    I went back to watch the Skyrim trailers again, and the SW: The Old Republic trailers were pretty good too. The Borderlands 2 trailer that featured "The lion sleeps tonight" as a soundtrack is one of my favorites.

    The game doesn't interest me, but I still have a soft spot for the Magicka Vietnam announcement trailer:

    I only really remember two sets of Trailers. Trailers that introduce me to bands, like the Dark Souls Trailers with the Silent Comedy. The Left 4 Dead 2 Trailer, because it showed me Clutch or the Dying Light one with Woodkid.



    And then there's the really well made shorts from Valve for Team Fortress 2. They manage the impossible in that they get me hyped for a game I really don't much care about.

    Not PC, but Metal Gear Solid have one of the best trailers ever.

    Demon's Souls trailer always gets me going. The music, the great opening with the floaty monster, the sense of inevitable doom and despair and that dragon roar at the end that always gives me chills... Love it!

    Cinematic game trailers are usually best when mentally detached from the game in question. They tend to be terrible in terms of actual representation, heh. Still, they sure can be pieces of art.

    I really like the recent Dreadnought trailer. Probably everyone saw it, but oh well.

    Haven't seen it. Jesus Christ. Must have made an appropriate impression back when it was revealed.

    Yeah, Kojima may be an awful storyteller but he's certainly a great visual director - his six-minute clip for Revengeance is what sold me on the game, even though I was disappointed to learn the actual score is mediocre hair metal rather than Epic Trailer Music.
    I post photos here. I write stories here. I'm on Twitter here.

    This is burned into my mind for eternity for probably obvious reasons.

    Twitter! Occasional impressions on random sim games.

    It is very nice, but I absolutely hated its reception. Everyone was running in circles screaming "GOTY" long before seeing one frame of actual game.
