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

    Though I know Meridian was actually the 1st if I remember right (or was it The Realm Online?), and MUDs before that.
    Neverwinter Nights first graphical mmorpg and Legends of Future Past the first text mmorpg

    Being the Star Wars junkie that I am... I really wish/hope that Disney would pick up on this character and story line.  They could even use the same actor.  /shrug

    Although i really do find some appreciation in the newer stuff.

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

    Edit: since somebody already posted the swtor one

    Every time watch any of the ESO trailers, I want to dust off my double daggers and two hander.

    Lots of cool trailers filling me with sweet, dramatic eye candy ;)

    While I enjoy good CGI trailers, they never "sell me" on the games. I actually have a perverse reaction and wonder, "Why are they NOT showing actual gameplay? Is it so awful?"

    One thing a trailer needs to do, in my opinion, is get players interested in an upcoming game. Some trailers fail to do this.

    I don't put much stock in them and don't watch a lot of them. I'm the player that rarely buys a game on release day, preferring to "wait and see." But they certainly can be fun to watch :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Well, trailers are nice if you want something to show in a booth big screen these days. Beyond that, they aren't a very productive use of resources.

    Take for example the latest Death Stranding trailer. My interest in that game hasn't changed one bit, either positively or negatively. Some gameplay footage certainly would. Still, it probably looks good on a big screen somewhere.

    FFXIV:ARR, there have been numerous trailers for it, but i think this is the best one by far.

    these are top 3 i can remember of top my head that i enjoyed 

    simple made you feel it the end  of world

    this one i enjoyed a lot because everyone want to be the hero, you play games were you always win kill 1000 bad guys an save the girl, i felt i was the father here trying be the hero and it all fell apart... 

    this one i enjoyed because i played WC3 and felt arthas was a good villain. if things just went different he would be a hero but he slowly lost himself on a quest for power to stop a darkness he himself slow became.

    Saw no Dawn of War ones adding that too to this impressive list

    Hard to choose since there are so many, but from WoW it's an in-game cinematic.  SPOLIER:  if you haven't done the alliance side and don't want a story spoiler then don't watch this:

    From the witcher 3 it has to be this one:

    I really enjoyed Wildstar's first trailer. It got me interested in the game. Unfortunately, as it developed, I saw it not a game I'd enjoy.

    Loved that game.  Devs had a bias for destruction side.  Having played both sides, it clearly showed for me.

    most trailer of games are very successful whether graphically or aesthetically everything is beautiful but they are sometimes very misleading and once the game buy you realize that it is not worth it, it's art to sell.
