Sometimes, all you need is the right kind of trailer to get you excited for a video game. Having footage from the game helps a little bit, but if you can somehow capture the ambience with the right song and visual display, then that works as well.
Over the years, we’ve gotten some really bad video game trailers – stuff that basically sits there to promote instead of trying to provide a message. But there are also some exceptional ones, trailers that help tell the story behind the game, and get you excited for what’s to come.
So, considering that we love game trailers so much (and that we’re going to see a bunch in the months ahead leading into E3, coming up in June), we’ve decided to look at some of the best video game trailers ever made. They could be nominated for a number of reasons – having the right song, setting the right tone – but we think you’ll agree that our selections are pretty damn awesome.
Hit the lights, grab a bag of popcorn, and enjoy our rundown of the best video game trailers ever released!
