What are some of the greatest game trailers of all time?

LowellsandersLowellsanders Member UncommonPosts: 134
As a gamer, I've always loved cinematic game trailers. Gameplay trailers are what sells a game to me in the end.
By the way this was my all time favorite trailer so far 

So what are your favorites? What makes them so memorable for you? Do they actually give an accurate idea of what the gameplay offers?

    I posted the "Sylvanas" one to contrast a bit with all the full 3D CGI ones, but I love many others too...

    Look at those... they should have made a TOR movie !

    I actually like the one for WAR.  I just wish great trailers equated to great games.  Seems like more effort is put into the trailers than the mechanics sometimes.

    They really should have :c

    Then again, supposedly those trailers were mad expensive per minute of footage.

    What about ESO ones. I thought those were the best of all of them.

    Call of Duty has had some good trailers over the years. I think this one is my favorite...

    SWTOR / BLUR hands down... ESO was pretty good too.

    Edit: since somebody already posted the swtor one

    I was going to post this one! Lol. Couldn't agree more!
  • WizardryWizardry Member LegendaryPosts: 17,882
    IDK if falls under the game trailer title but the movie opener for FFXIV is by far the best and most professional looking i have ever seen and is quite long as well.
    I have been using that movie as the measuring stick for all other movies and since then i have trouble saying anything is even half as good.

    12 minutes of amazing work is just crazy seeing most other movies are a minute or less.

    Most of the ones I'd pick have been covered already, so I'll add the Battlefield 1 announce trailer:

    UO/EQ1/AC is what started the revolution. WoW just made it accessible to masses.

    Yeah, exactly.

    UO/EQ1/AC and older MMOs didn't and still will never have even have the numbers of post-WoW MMOs do. WoW may have the most, but it also brought in a ton of new players and changed how MMOs are played (for better or worse depending ony our point of view).

    Even ESO, GW2, FFXIV have more subscribers than most of the older MMOs peaked at. WoW didn't just help Blizzard, but many newer MMOs as well.

    But that is what I meant, more than an actual "revolution" that UO/EQ/AC did that the three pretty much started the MMO stuff. I meant more a revolution because it changed a lot of MMOs post-WoW launch and brought in a TON of new MMO players.

    Though I know Meridian was actually the 1st if I remember right (or was it The Realm Online?), and MUDs before that.

    I know everybody is going to go with the awesome 3D/Live footage + dramatics, but when this trailer dropped the music + the footage + the title had people (including myself) going absolutely bonkers.
