Tell me about the games you anticipated the very most. Especially if there was a trailer which really made you froth.
Or maybe there is a trailer which caught your attention, for a game you weren’t necessarily needing before!
One of my most anticipated games ever, was Final Fantasy VIII. I don’t remember trailers for it. But I do remember THAT demo. Maybe the first game I ever pre-ordered. I had my binder adorned with as much FF8 artwork as I could tastfully arrange. For like a year. 7th/8th grade. Along with “9.9.99” release date awwwwwyeaaaahhhh.
Here is someone’s long play of the demo
Gamespot TV debuted the Resident Evil: Code Veronica FMV cinematic with Claire. I taped that shit and showed it to my mom. I don’t even love Resident Evil as much as some people. But that trailer was pretty rad. I can’t find a proper cut of it on YouTube. Maybe one of you can…
The absolute most froth I have ever been for a game, is snake eater.
12 minutes of nice camera angles, showing gameplay which is all possible in-game, with in-game assets. I was 17 at the time. It released on PS2, November 2004. I was 18, then.
Few times have I ever been so hype for a game. And it persists as one of my most favorite games of all time.
I really enjoyed Battlefield: Bad Company. So, I was verrry excited for its sequel. Battlefield has a long history of pretty hot trailers. But for BC2, they did an additional set of clips which showed actual gameplay. And they marketed them as “battlefield moments”. Brilliant.
This, for reasons I can’t completely explain, is my fave. Something about the initial rush up on an ATV… And it really showed the new ideas and layers for map design.
BC2 is one of the best multiplayer FPS ever. I put a lot of time into it. Would still happily play maps for it, today.
I would love to have Dark Souls on here, but I’m trying to be honest and keep a tight group here. Demon’s Souls was too good. I was skeptical. Was still very excited. But I was more honest froth for BC2!
