What were trailers that got you super excited for the game, even if it really didn't have much to do with it.
For me the trailer that got me the most excited was probably that CG Halo 3 trailer.
I think that I watched this trailer dozens of times. I really liked how gritty it looked. In the end, I much prefer the Wind Waker style.
This is a great trailer. At the time, I would attend weekly Melee tournaments, and was just really into Smash. This was just one awesome reveal after another. Each new character that entered the screen made me just a touch more giddy with excitement. Then, Snake... they could not have introduced him in a better way. What a shock that was! I was extra excited as a big Metal Gear fan.
Assassin's Creed Revelations, Ubisoft needs to drop the game making thing and just make sick ass trailers for a living. It never measured up to Brotherhood but the trailer made everyone want this.
I agree! Ubisoft is definitely the best at making cinematic trailers. They also pick the best music; Unkle's "Lonely Soul" was perfect for the first Assassin's Creed trailer, too!
I would say the trailer that got me hyped the most was the launch trailer for Mount&Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars. Holy Da Kasier, beforehand when I was an active member of the mod predecessor of the DLC/Expansion and could not fathom the glee I seemed to generate from the prospect of doing linebattles in this fresh package in those 2-3 months ago:
Early 19th century violence and a fast Baroque piece playing, it was a lovely peek into the grand battles that would take place.
Although trailers don't make as much of an impact [on me] anymore, I'd still say that the Assassin's Creed franchise has some damn attractive advertising. Mass Effect 3's official trailer and Dead Island's original trailer were incredibly fine recent ones as well, although, as previously mentioned, the latter didn't nearly live up to its marketed counterpart.
Even after beating the game and knowing how flawed it is the trailer manages to hype me up so much. Whoever did the cut is a real genius as some of those scenes aren't nearly as exciting in the game as they are here so hats off - great song choice also.
Some pretty popular choices here, I expected more unknowns however.
I'll have a try.
3) Star Wars the Old Republic
Ok this is kinda popular, but that trailer got me hyped as fuck, I knew the game wasn't gonna turn out like this BUT COME ON, that trailer is geek heaven.
Not to mention the others they released, BLUR knows their stuff.
Most of my choices have already been posted. The debut trailer for Assassin's Creed, debut of Mirror's Edge, AC:Rev E3 trailer. Only other one that is coming to mind right now is...
I still haven't played Nuts & Bolts :( the disappointment of it not playing in the way of the classic Banjo games hit me pretty hard, I still do intend to play it sometime though. Just need to grab it off my shelf.
