GameTrailers says Bioshock debut trailer is best of all time

So after going through 100 videogame trailers of all time they came to their number one today over at Gametrailers. Now this is a feature that I have really enjoyed watching, I mean the great video editing, trailers and gameplay footage are the reasons I go to GT and this has it all. I've agreed with some of their picks and disagreed with plenty but it's a great list nontheless. See video below:

About that number one, do you guys agree with that? Do you feel like they justify their choice? If not then what is your personal favorite and for what reasons? I can't say I agree with GT but I really liked that trailer, I mean it blew my mind when I saw it for the first time, it still kinda amazes me. Certain times I enjoy watching trailers more than playing the actual game. Atleast it's less of a time commitment.

There are so many trailers that I love so I'm pretty conflicted on this topic. I'm just gonna settle for 1 that sticks out in my memory.

First off is Mirror's Edge. When I first heard about this game it got my interest. And then this trailer came out. The amazing artstyle, the fresh feeling parkour gameplay and that wonderful music makes it one of my favorites. It's also very simple, it shows the game off well. It's not my favorite but it's on my top 5, can't really choose a favorite.

There are plenty of others, plenty of which are on that list but I figured I'd keep this brief

I can think of better trailers IMO but whatever floats yer boat Gametrailers.

I think that is a totally reasonable choice.

Warhammer Online had one of the best trailers/openings to it. Shame about the game tho...

That Mirrors Edge trailer was pretty awesome, the music is great - but the biggest plus for me was that it's almost all gameplay footage, not even in engine cinematic.

Not usually a huge fan of cinematics but the Wrath of The Lich King trailer was amazing imo.

I'm partial to the Dead Island trailer, but Bioshock is a fine trailer.

They obviously haven't seen that Syndicate trailer, cus that shit has dubstep!

I think it's a totally valid/acceptable choice by my own opinion. That trailer is pretty cool, and I love the part where the big daddy sticks his drill right into that dude...wait...what?

What was Dead Island ranked at? I mean that was the best game trailer I've seen and the game became an overnight sensation just based on that thing.

Did I see GTA IV like 3 times in that quick recap?

I'm happy with that choice.

Thanks for that, I was following the countdown for a while, and was just about to check the final video. Anyways, that's a pretty good choice for top trailer. TOR got 4th so I was happy for that.

@CrimsonNoir: It was 5th.

Good choice.
