If you survived the SEGA CD era of crappy FMV games, you’re probably like me: highly skeptical of anytime game publishers decide to Go Full Hollywood and film a live action trailer for an upcoming game. To me, live action trailers ask questions that most game publishers don’t want asked of their wares, such as:
- What are you hiding?
- Is your game actually a pile of Chihuahua droppings and this is your way of distracting me long enough to get my $60?
- Do any of the events portrayed in this trailer happen in the real game?
- Will you be blasting Immigrant Song during tense FPS shootouts? Please say no.
- Why do I give a crap if Michael Phelps plays Call of Duty?
