PostThe best game trailers ever, as chosen by you
by Dave » Sun Aug 17, 2008 6:28 pm

I thought this might be a nice way to make the most of the shiny new GameTrailers/YouTube embed feature.

Much like our recent Best of YouTube feature, we're looking to run a similar feature over at D+PAD for the best game trailers ever made - but this time it's you that decides what makes the grade.

So if you've got a fondness for a particular trailer embed it in here to cast your vote. If someone else has already embedded it, just vote for it, and we'll publish the results on the website later in the week. :mrgreen:

EDIT: Depending on how popular this thread is, I might edit this first post with the best 10 or so trailers submitted and then add a poll to determine rank. Also, please make sure they're official trailers, rather than fan-created videos. Image

Apparently this one can't be embedded, but it's awesome, so it has to be seen.

That Gears 2 trailer is one of my personal favs 8-)

I don't know if this is strictly a trailer, but its under the trailer section at gametrailers and it's worth it for the bit at the end.

THE best Duke Nukem Trailer. More fun to watch than being able to play the game will ever be. Epic trailer at the time and I still love it even now.

The Halo 3 ones were very very very,

I also (seemingly alone) liked Gears to mad world.

'And conquered worlds' :D

Takes me back, and also, for me, pretty much pinpoints the moment gaming really started to go mainstream.

On a side note, I hate how clicking on a video now links you to youtube, instead of pausing it. Anyway...

Not really a trailer, but impressive nonetheless IMHO

Not sure if this is a trailer as such. It's the Soul Calibur video on Dream On volume 2
