E3 2012 was a mixed bag. While it failed to provide a substantial number of new game announcements (which is always the case), it did give us plenty of awesome game trailers. Game developers are getting better at enhancing the cinematic aspect of their games, and it is evident from some of the trailers which have been showcased. So lets take a look at the best trailers on offer at this year’s E3, in no particular order.
Assassins Creed 3
This game already has me hyped, but the trailer took it to another level. Past AC games have concentrated on the battle versus the templars, but the third installment in the series adds liberation, freedom, independence, and other war related themes to the mix to make the scale even more epic. The scenes where our protagonist charges forward as his countrymen are retreating gives you that adrenaline rush, and when his war comrades get inspired by his acts, the feeling (similar to the one in Braveheart and 300) is chilling to the bone. Assassins Creed 2 was my favorite Assassins Creed game, and if AC3 turns out to be as good, i’ll be disappointed. I expect much more from it, and it looks like it might deliver.
Beyond: Two Souls
Far Cry 3
