See title.

There have been some tremendously epic video game trailers in the past. Use this thread to document them and share them with others!

I know of a few games where the trailer ended up being better than the actual game, and sometimes it was 100% spot on to what the game ended up delivering.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Metal Gear Solid 2: Still a favorite, love love love the theme.

Skyrim: Holy hell, this still gives me chills. I knew this game was going to consume a lot of hours. This was worth the wait. FUS RO DAH!
Elder Scrolls V Skyrim: Official Gameplay Trailer - YouTube

Assassins Creed III: I honestly have yet to play one of these games, they look really fun but.. I dunno. But this trailer is pretty awesome. Kept the best parts of the song, but removed the ninja music.
'Coming Home' Television Commercial | Assassin's Creed 3 [North America] - YouTube

Halo Reach: So many of them were epic.. this had a very personal feeling to it.

Mass Effect 3: While I had some major issues with the ending, the majority of the game and it's corresponding trailers were just epic.

Though my favorite trailer has got to be for Mass Effect 2... fuck. I still get pumped.

This was the WW2 game to play when it came out...I remember going apeshit over it. Upgraded my gaming rig just so I could play this and CoD 2 when it came out.

I jumped on the GTA 3 bandwagon as soon as it was announced just because I played the shit out of GTA 1, 2, and London on the PC. GTA 3 changed everything, but when Vice City came out, holy shit balls.

God, that reaffirms my wishes that V would have been another period piece.

Vice City nailed the atmosphere. It was short on a lot of things, and is dated like a mother in the looks department, but I still maintain that it is THE best GTA game ever.

I know this is video game trailers, but this ad was on the back of one of my GI Joe comics as a kid...looking at all the awesome gear. I used to take a Joe and load him up with as much of that as I could find (or put it in a night landing raft) and have one Joe (usually SE because of the outfit) infiltrate a Cobra base...good times. And makes me really wish I had some Med buildings so my kids could play that way. I need to stay off the Xbox and start spending nights in the basement working...and sad to say before we had working holsters, I used rubber bands that my brother used on his braces to attach pistols to their legs, and extra rifles to the backpacks. Mom would always give me a bag of the bands when we went to his othrodontist appointments.

E3 hasn't shown me much yet, but Detroit Become Human looks like it could be good stuff.

I dug Mafia II, but Mafia III in the late '60s/early '70s may not do it for me. Could have a KILLER soundtrack, though.

Then there's Battlefield 1. I suck at FPS though.

So E3 was largely a bust this year. Apparently COD:WWII already has people butthurt.

No hakenkreuzen (swastikas) on the banners, and black splittails on the German side in multiplayer. Swastikas I can understand, as well as women, but there were most certainly blacks among the Free Arabian Legion volunteers. The thing that got me was the trench gun. As far as I can recall, they didn't make the trip to the ETO, strictly the Pacific.

If they wanted to shoehorn a female on the German side, they could have done a RADw.J , Flakhelferin, or Nachrichtenhelferin. All three bearing arms are equally unlikely, but they're all less obviously a SJW play than a black woman in a German line unit.
