Top 5 Game Trailers worse than Hitman: Absolution’s

CalmDownTom says, "So you’ve all seen that Hitman: Absolution trailer right? Although the internet exploded in condemnation, I don’t think its the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Here are 5 trailers that are just as bad if not worse:" (Catherine, Culture, Guardians of Middle-earth, Hitman: Absolution, PC, PS3, Retro, Xbox 360)

Hitman Absolution's trailer wasn't so much bad as just...weird.

What part of the internet is he on? I haven't seen much condemnation for it, I actually think it's really good. The inclusion of sexy nuns with guns is weird but it's a good trailer.

I didn't realise there was much hate for the Hitman trailer. I really liked it. And I hate the inclusion of needless sex appeal like lollipop chainsaw. I'm not remotely interested in a game that pushes sex that much.

I can't explain what's different about Hitman's leather clad ladies, maybe it's that the whole game isn't based on them. And also that he treats them equally as brutal as he would any male enemies. Is the problem that he's killing women? Or that they're scantily clad?

It's the sexual fantasy of chaste women revealing their sexuality that makes people get a little twitchy, and the whole murder several women thing doesn't really help much either. There's no real context to explain it (not that such a thing is often probable within a trailer).

There's also, of course, no real indication of gameplay, and even worse it seems to imply more of an action standpoint. It's not necessarily saying Hitman will move into action 3rd person shooter, but some people (especially fans of the series) probably would've felt more comfortable with a stealthy or mixed approach to the trailer.

It's also pretty cheesye even though they try to play it off as gritty.

Honestly, I didn't hate or even dislike it, but it just seemed kind of dumb, like this was the best they could come up with?

I personally think that Hot, busty nuns packing heat is better than 1,000 Super Bowls.

I also think that Donald Trump must be happy about the outrage:

Nuns with Guns = bad,

Chicks with... = good?

The trailer was pretty good. The only bad part was the "the original assassin" screen. black on red is really bad.
