Agreed. Cinematic trailers serve a different purpose than gameplay trailers. Their goal is to relay a story/context for the game, convey a mood and get people psyched about the game. The more removed from actual gameplay graphics, the better, as it avoids the misconception that what one is seeing is gameplay.
Dead Island trailer achieved its goal masterfully. Two other cinematic trailers that did a great job of generating hype for their game were the 2003 WOW cinematic trailer and the 2010 SWTOR "Deceived" trailer.
In that last one, it created all the necessary moments
Other than those unrealistically expecting to see gameplay, most people were rather pumped up after watching that trailer.
And that's the cinematic trailer's job.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre

I wouldn't say that.
Would 'Dead Island' be as popular as it is without that trailer that literally set the gaming world on fire?
That is quite honestly one of the best trailers ever made, ever.
And think of how many copies of the game sold just because of that trailer? I would guess quite a few.
If in 1982 we played with the current mentality, we would have burned down all the pac man games since the red ghost was clearly OP. Instead we just got better at the game.
Isn't necessary and would be a waste of money. This game already has an insane amount of hype and buzz going on. Would be a complete waste of resources.
1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.
2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.
3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.
I'm wary of cinematic trailers. WAR's and SWTOR's CGI trailers were really beautiful but the games were a sham.
SWTOR's alarm bell rang for me when they showed us these beautiful pieces of art but little to nothing of real gameplay trailers.
They're expensive, useless and create hype that often falls short on its promises.
For me, the choice to avoid these shiny baubles is another sign of Anet's solidity and dedication to their game.
Blizzard does give good cgi
I love this mock SWTOR dev commentary about cgi http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/star-wars-the-old-republic-fake-trailer

Almost, however I think some do.
I think it's No game that is trying to sell itself with GAMEPLAY needs a cinematic trailer
If you continue to make sweeping statements like you know what everyone everywhere thinks about a certain topic then I am going to shout at you.It easy to type 'I think this is the worst game ever'Rather than the 'This is the worst game ever'
where is the "i dont care" vote option.
Will a trailer really affect your gameplay. do you really need to discuss if a company has to do this and that?

I'd say no for one very good reason, as we've seen in other so called wow killers, cinematic trailers are NEVER like the gameplay in the actual game, i'd prefer the stance of honesty that Anet has taken with their title.
