The trailer itself looks great but it's telling the wrong story. Hitman is about stealth, disguises, assassinations and silent kills. I know because I've played all the Hitman games, including Codename 47. This trailer hasn't got any of that, except for the disguise part.

Well said. I actually got to know Metallica during the Load and ReLoad era and I immediately fell in love with the band. From Kill 'em All to the Black Album to Load to Death Magnetic, I love everything that they do (except Lulu. That was horrendous!). Megadeth is my 2nd favourite Big Four; the Marty Friedman era is my favourite. Anthrax - I like a few of their songs. Slayer - love the ex-drummer Dave Lombardo but I'm not a fan of the band's lyrics and subject matters.

Metallica - I was majorly into Metallica for a few years, and having moved on from them I'd still rank their early albums as the pinnacle of thrash metal. They are all-round masterpieces. I also didn't think St. Anger was too bad, I liked a couple of songs on there. And Death Magnetic was pretty good. I actually never once listened to Load or Reload because of their reputations, which might be a mistake. However, an even bigger mistake was listening to all of Lulu. I don't know why I did, it was 90 minutes of torturous wank.

Megadeth - Liked them almost as much as Metallica. Especially, as a guitarist myself (though not so much anymore :( I should get back into that... ), I just adored the riffs and the solos. Absolutely amazing, though shit hard to play. I didn't listen to much of their work post Rust In Peace as I didn't like what I did. But I thought Endgame was a great album. Heard terrible things about Super Collider, I think I listened to it once but I don't even remember anything about it.

Slayer - I love everything about their dark, violent style. Some great riffs and awesome lyrics. I still can't believe Jeff Hanneman passed away, he was the better guitarist too IMO. I thought their last album, World Painted Blood, was good as well.

Anthrax - I just plain never listened to much of these guys at all. Probably a mistake, but I just never heard anything that grabbed me.

Testament and Exodus are totally cool too. And actually Exodus' recent album The Electric Age was awesome. My favourite album of whatever year it was released, 2012 I think.

Also, Black Sabbath is just plain one of the best metal bands ever. Still listen to their stuff (and I really don't listen to much music at all anymore) and I thought their last album was great, some really excellent tracks on there.

Because Iron Maiden came a decade earlier. They are not pioneers of Thrash Metal but New Wave of British Heavy Metal (along with Judas Priest, Diamond Head, Motörhead, etc). BIG difference.

How the fuck could there be a "Big Four" that does not include Iron Maiden?

UPDATE: Just a bit of clarification, the Big Four refers to Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth and Slayer, the four American bands that introduced and pioneered the Thrash Metal genre in the 1980s.

Mine's Metallica! They're my ultimate favourite band and the first of the Big Four that I got to know. I love Metallica to bits. I enjoy listening to the other bands as well so I've decided to put a list here - 1 being my most favourite and 4 least favourite:

  1. Metallica
  2. Megadeth
  3. Anthrax
  4. Slayer

Feel free to add your own Big Four list too. METAL!

Love all of them

1. Megadeth

2. Metallica

3. Slayer

4. Anthrax

Also think many other bands could take Anthrax's place, like Overkill, or Exodus.

Good stuff. I think Anthrax sounds better live. Did you see them performed at the Big Four: Live at Sofia, Bulgaria (2010)?

@vampire_chibi I absolutely agree with Evil Genius 2, Gangsters 3 and Tiberian Sun 2. The originals were fantastic.

Here's my top ten list:

  • The Suffering 3 - I'm a big fan of the Suffering series and the conclusion to pt 2 left a bad taste in my mouth as it felt inconclusive. I want more Torque action!
  • System Shock 3 - The story of SHODAN is far from over. I demand a third instalment right now!
  • Dungeon Keeper 3 - Dungeon Keeper Mobile does not count...
  • God Hand 2 - Capcom is known for making lots of sequels so it leaves me wondering why they still haven't made a sequel to this forgotten gem on the PlayStation 2. Probably it has something to do with Shinji Mikami leaving Capcom but whatever the case is, I want a sequel!
  • Killer7 II - One of my favourite Gamecube games by Suda 51 deserves a continuation. This could be a great addition to the Wii U library.
  • Army Men III - After Army Men II, the series went way downfall thanks to the idiotic marketing ploy by Trip Hawkins and the douchebags at 3DO. None of the games afterward came close to Army Men II in terms of replay value or even proper playability. I'm still waiting for some new Army Men goodness that looks AND plays well.
  • Final Fight 4 - Final Fight: Streetwise was a crap of a mess that didn't have any redeeming qualities like the original. Capcom should stop milking the Resident Evil series and instead, be focusing on treating these other franchises with love and care as well.
  • Condemned 3 - Condemned 2: Bloodshot had its flaws but I loved it more than its predecessor. Unfortunately, due to poor sales, Monolith said a sequel won't likely be happening in the near future. Damn...
  • Geist 2 - Another great gem on the Gamecube that I loved very much. This is one of the first-party games that Nintendo should bring back for the Wii U.
  • Gun II - The original was not a perfect game but I had tons of fun playing it years ago. The story continuation of protagonist Colton White would look great on next gen consoles. Here's hoping...

Drums and guitar. My style is metal, rock and alternative.
