Jacob Potila was actually a Jacob Flotilla of lies.- WarTurkey
I've been rewatching some of my favorite game trailers from over the years, so I was wondering, what are your favorites?

What really got me going was the Dishonored trailer. I love the game's version of the 'Drunken Sailor' song, it's haunting but also goddamn catchy and fits the trailer really well. I'd probably have it as my favorite, actually.

Metal Gear Solid V's 'Elegia' trailer was also a standout, as much as it kinda hurts to watch now.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Halo 3. "Do you think anyone is out there?" The scene with the bubble shield.
Fucking hype.

these aren't so much "commercials" that played on TV or anything; instead, they're creatively designed web-based promotional material made for majora's mask that functioned almost like an ARG, the details of which can only scantly remember

it's a pretty fun concept, though, and it makes me happy to know that the game's darker setting and plot were not completely lost on the marketers—they understood what made the game unique and cool, and did not just try to sell it on its name alone

YouTube

here's another with a similar concept (and this one actually played on TV), but it isn't executed as well imo

TOR had the absolute kino trailers. Shame the MMO was pretty lacklustre.

In an alternate timeline, GearBox gave this game the attention it deserves.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Father Dougal McGuire, from Craggy Island's Father Ted.
The Gears' 1-3 ones always stick with me. Even the 4th one I hadn't seen and that looks alright anyway.

The Borderlands' original trailer was pretty lackluster - 3 years later they sold it's sequel with a lot more of it's strengths;
YouTube


Destroy All Humans had a few, but this is the one that sold me it as a kid;
YouTube


Halo has some damn good live action trailers. The Halo 3 ones should be up here too, but this was the first one I saw on TV;
YouTube


Deus Ex doesn't show much gameplay though it does have a very good way of displaying the features through the trailers,and even a large part of the story without ultimately spoiling anything. The monologue reads out a bit like a techno version of Hatred though;

And further onto the topic of dystopian alternative futures (...right?), there's Fallout 3 with a general "everything's fucked" tone;
YouTube

to NV's "Well, everything's not all bad, we have casinos..."
YouTube

to 4's "Yep, still fucked"
YouTube


Then we have the Commie's Russian take on the upcoming apocalypse; less 50's idealistic superficial coating over a dystopia, just straight up hellish with a hint of slightly different make-believe;

So yeah, that last one is out next year and it's been the only new game series I've pre-ordered, and the only one I'm ordering for next year methinks.
