Recently talked about this game on another forum!

Loved both Lords Of Shadows games, I think alot of people just couldn't get over themselves having the fear and problem with the fact that Castlevania was moving to a 3D space.

In reality the 3D Castlevania games were just as good as the old ones by any defense but if a fan-bases allow their bitterness to keep them from enjoying new games and embracing something different then the games will flop. That's what hapened here and now that community blames the devs and pubs for killing off the Castlevania legacy when it's only the community's fault for not liking good 3D games and accepting where the franchise was going lol

Now thanks to that, we might not ever get a Castlevania game again - hopefully I'm wrong. Thankfully we have indie spiritual successors though which make up for the rowdy community/fanboys ruining things :)

As a Dishonored fan, I must suggest these as among the better ones:

 

 

As one comment read: "This is one of the few games where its trailer is actually an accurate depiction of the game itself."

1996.

 

trailer included a different composer than most o' the game and much trailer content never made it into the release. no gameplay neither.  even so, we were well and fully hooked with the trailer. 

 

HA! Good Fun!

Dead Island (too bad the game sucked). I'm not sure which I found more affecting, the original or when IGN reversed it to be in chronological order.

 

Borderlands 2 Doomsday trailer (too much fun).

This is possibly one of greatest trailers I've seen:

 

 

Yeah, I know: when the trailer ends being better than the actual game.

 

EDIT: 

 

The trailer for SCORN is pretty sick!

 

EDIT 2:

 

The original Dishonored had an awesome trailer:

Haven't played the game but the "killing monsters" trailer for The Witcher 3 is one of the best game trailers ever.

 

Also love the KickStarter pitch video for Wasteland 2. Not really a trailer but that is easily my favorite pitch.

Ok, I'm kidding.

 

 

In terms of trailers that got me really excited when I first saw them, Diablo3 was one. Loved the music too.

Their cinematic trailers are often delicious, even if they have nothing to do with actual gameplay. lol.

After first being severely disappointed, this is what brought me back in and changed the game into my all time 1# favorite game of all time and all time favorite add-on.
