What do you think are the best video game trailers? 
 
My personal favourite is the famous MW2 launch trailer, unforunatly the multiplayer ruined my love for this game but each time I see this it reminds me of how much I adored the singleplayer:   

  I also have much love for these:  
    
    
  As you can see good music plays an important role in making a good trailer in my opinion. 
 
Note: Excuse me if this thread has already been made before but I did use the GB forum search (which I hate) and couldn't find much else.

My favorite:   

   
I watched this one a couple of times over, back to back:

The only one that ever made me want to buy a game is the RDR series that presented it as a documentary. Games are not movies, I want to know what the game is about, not some pre-rendered shite.

@ESREVER: Oh yeah I totally forgot about the Deus Ex trailer, it's so (HERE IT COMES) EPIC.

  This trailer sends shivers down my spine ever single time I watch it. It's a fucking masterpiece.

A lot of those Halo: Reach ones really hit home.  Jetpacking into some enemy ship and throwing some shit into it.  Brought tears to my eyes.

@CABBAGES: That right there is gold. I don't know whether it's DICE or EA that write that stuff, but it's amazing. This deserves a mention too: 
 
  
  the Call of Duty version was so bad, it just made this more amazing. It's the self awareness that wins it for me.

Fuck, that MW2 trailer is amazing, i wanna pop that game in right now and try and save Ghost. 
 
The Gears of War trailers are great love those, and the Dante's Inferno trailer kinda copies that style and i really liked that.

Devil may cry 4 had quite an intense trailer.

Yeah this trailer is truly epic, shivers were had, the female version is pretty good too, I played as a lady   
  I'll post some more trailers after I'm done thinking

To show the dmc 4 trailer:   

  I think it's one of the most awesome trailers this gen...after deus ex 3 of course.
#25 Posted by Cornman89 (1579 posts) -

MGS2 E3 2001.

@Abyssfull: 
 
Great trailer!  Good use of music and scenes from the game.
#27 Posted by Djeffers03 (2545 posts) -

I also just remembered this:  

  Maybe it's not the best trailer around but it was very effective at selling me the game.
#28 Posted by borgmaster (514 posts) -

Still the best music syncing I've seen in a trailer.

Best game trailer of 2010. 
  

#31 Posted by Yummylee (22067 posts) -

Also even though it's fresh from this years TGS, I think the new DMC trailer is a favourite of mine. I really like the song for it and it's better than a great deal of all the other DMC soundtracks before it.

@Bones8677: Blizzard always seem to produce awesome CG. They even managed to make WoW look cool with the Cataclysm trailer!

  Can't think of any trailers that have made me more excited for any games than these two.

The Trailer for Lost Odyssey

Even though the game isn't thought of well, I loved this one for TFU2.

So baddass!
#38 Edited by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -

Aside from the Gears of War Mad World trailer - these: 
  World in Conflict - The Magnum PI Experience

   Bad Company VS the guy in the barrel
  
Now WHY WOULD SOMEBODY HIDE IN A BARREL?! That's about as stupid as hiding in a cardboard box!
 
 
Oh and if Magicka Vietnam isn't among the nominees for trailer of the year...

The gameplay trailers for BF3 have made my jaw drop, they are stunning.

#40 Posted by JEC03 (904 posts) -

  

  One of my favorite games of all time.
#41 Posted by valrog (3671 posts) -

Anything made by Blizzard. If "Meet The" videos for TF2 can be counted among trailers, then those as well. Also, Deus Ex: Human Revolution had some amazing trailers. Then there's Assassin's Creed, The Witcher, Grand Theft Auto IV (The "Things Will Be Different" trailer is just amazing), Dragon Age (Sacred Ashes trailer) and I probably forgot a lot of others.

#42 Posted by PhatSeeJay (3322 posts) -
@JEC03:  Watching that trailer makes me so sad to think of what they're doing to poor Max in Max Payne 3.
#43 Posted by Psykhophear (939 posts) -

On top of my head, it's the Club. I love the way how each element of the video is pieced together into this one awesome trailer. The music is intense, the directing is fantastic and the action scenes are amazing to look at. This is my favorite Bizarre Creations game.

I've completed ME2 three whole times and that trailer still makes me want to go back and play it again. 
 
It is a good trailer.

Necro? I Google searched, this and a 4 year old thread showed up.

This is probably my favourite trailer (technically it's the pre-main menu intro) because I adore the song and Yakuza cutscenes are fantastic:

The game is pretty fucking rad too.

#49 Edited by Indiana_Jenkins (392 posts) -

I can't tell you guys how many times I've watched the launch trailer for Mirror's Edge. I still have the trailer downloaded to my PS3.

Same deal with the first Syndicate trailer (although Skrillex kinda dates it).

This Red Dead Redemption trailer was also pretty good.

But really...video game trailers are pretty much done now.
