Now that the trilogy is done, which is your favorite "sad" trailer?
I feel Mad World's played but at the time it probably wasn't.
The Gears 2 trailer didn't feel like anything was going on. It felt like they were just doing a job.
I think Ashes to Ashes is the best as it shows how hopeless their situation has become. The world seems already lost and characters are barely holding on to their lives and sanity.
Dust to Dust is a close second as it touches on the same things in Ashes to Ashes but feels like it was meant as a resolution.
They are all great but Mad World was the one that had the most impact. By 3 you know you are getting another sad song and the novelty is gone but it is still good. Its also the one that has the most action in it.
Though the Mad World one is weird because its Marcus alone and that kinda never happens.
I know it's not necessarily a "sad" trailer, but there's this one too. Also, it's a toss-up between Mad World and Dust to Dust for me.
Nothing gave me chills quite like this trailer when it premiered. Even to this day I'm blown away with it. My absolute favorite entry.
Voted Mad World. Also really liked the Ashes to Ashes trailer for Gears 3 that had Heron Blue as a song.
Yeah, I kinda knee-jerk voted for 3 because I thought this was that one. This being the case, I guess I'd have to vote for 1. Especially after it popped up again in 3 in its own special way.
