4 Trailers That Could Have Been Better With Different Music

Most video game trailers are awesome and gamers that watch them grab the edge of their seat out of sheer anticipation. And then there are the few trailers that screw up the momentum by including music that leaves players scratching their heads in confusion. We take a look at four video game trailers that could have been better with different music. (Assassin's Creed III, Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Hitman: Absolution, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

It's funny how gamers seem to think they know f*ckin everything. All these commercials work. Every time I hear these arguments it goes, "that song was awkward for what was on screen, they should have used *insert song no one f*ckin knows*."

The familiarity and popularity of these songs are the exact reason they are being used. People like us are already keen to what BF4 is going to be about. But other people, most people, don't follow games so closely and it's that familiarity that intrigues them. In my mind every trailer would be better to 2pac's "Troublesome '96" (think about it) but you don't hear me going around critiquing every trailer I see.

I understand what your saying but when you look at trailers like the Dead Island one or the gears of war 1/2 trailers its hard to argue that if you switched them with t-pain or drake singing over it they would be instant crap I almost cried and those trailers alone got me to get into the games. Your going to make a bigger impact bringing in an unknown song that fits the trailer and draws the viewer in more than one that's just there because singer A sung it and its in the trailer.

Disagree with BF4 trailer, I thought it was great use of the song with the video.

I'm thinking

A. The writer had an article titled, "3 Trailers that could have been better with different music" and hastily changed it.

B. The writer quickly wrote this article after watching the Battlefield 4 trailer.

C. A or B plus fishing for hits.
