We All Lift Together
This is technically old news, but Warframe came out with a new expansion of sorts.
Accompanying this expansion is perhaps one of the best game trailers ever made:
While the video is a delight itself, I am mainly referring to the song. Luckily, someone created an hour-long loop version so that I don’t have to keep clicking the Repeat button and/or fend off auto-playing “recommended” videos.
Listening to this on loop got me thinking… what even are the other contenders for best game trailers ever made? I had to go through several Top 10 lists to reacquaint myself with a few of them. My own list includes, in no particular order:
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution – “I did not ask for this”
- Bonus Deus Ex: HR – Live Action version
- Dead Island – best misleading trailer ever
- WoW: Wrath of the Lich King – (icy) blast from the past
- Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 3 – best trailer for terrible game
- Xenogears – 78 second trailer in 1997 led me to my favorite game
I’m a sucker for orchestra and choir and Inception noises, apparently.
If you need me, I’ll be listening to a trailer song of an expansion to a game I don’t even play.
