Your Favourite Video Game Trailers

The universe is about to implode from the sheer amount of hype that is now surrounding The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. People were already excited for it, the follow-up to 2006's brilliant Oblivion, but now the anticipation has reached an all-time high.

That's because the new in-game trailer that was released this morning (see below) for Skyrim showcases just about everything so many of us want to see in the game; action, vast landscapes, a large world to explore and, most importantly, dragons.

It's a pretty neat trailer. Judging by that clip, one could argue that Skyrim may very well be the best-looking RPG of all time, or at least come close to toppling Witcher 2, which also looks amazing.

But after watching this trailer I started to think about the hype and anticipation one may get after watching marketing material for a forthcoming title. Some publishers do game trailers really well (Rockstar is one that comes to mind), while others fail miserably (see Konami).

I remember a number of great game trailers over the years. The Super Smash Bros. TV spot back during the N64 days was hilarious and still has a place in my heart. It got me incredibly excited for the game, as any good trailer should.

Below I've included my 5 favourite video game trailers of all-time. What are yours? Post them below.

Same.

I was totally tripping ballz watching that killer 7 trailer.
I really love the original Bad Company trailers, where they take the mickey out of Solid Snake and his box hiding shenanigan's, they also spoof GoW Mad World too, it was actually a series of three or four adds. I also quite like Bad Comapny's 2 add where they had CC Sabathia give a public service announcement about random grenade throwing
