Live action trailers are so regularly pants. Gameplay is generally king as it gives you an idea of what's to come.

Yeah that's true on some level but a trailer is suppose to generate excitement. For TV trailers 90% of the people are not gonna give any care in the world. Sure some trailers need gameplay but those are for people who actually seek them out to know what a game will look like or in game store like gamestop tv (although they don't show that much gameplay of anything. You need to generate excitement before people want to know what something plays like.

That Dead Island trailer is one of the best I've seen.

Have you watched the Gears 1 trailer Mad World? Still the best trailer in video game history.

Please give it more deserves more views: )

Weird. Redneck Monthly asked this exact question recently.

In-door plumbing was the answer it turns out.
