Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
The Moment They Had Your Money: Trailers and Clips that Sold You
As part of a small community of gaming obsessives, I know that I'm not the only one that religiously scours the internet for trailers and footage to appease my unending gaming desire for more...MORE..MORE. After all, anticipating games is half the fun (and occasionally more enjoyable the the end product itself :P).
What gaming footage or trailers in your lifetime as a game has sent chills down your spine? What clip made you spooge your proverbial pants through scintillating short lived cinema?
Personally, I remember first watching the original starcraft intro and having my jaw drop. At that moment, I knew it was a game I MUST play. Unsurprisingly, the same thing has happened with the starcraft 2 reveal.
GOOD GOD, I want that game. As a long time starcraft diehard, that trailer really pushes all the right buttons. The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw "blizzard" and a futuristic setting was "...it's about fucking time." The pacing, the music, the montage clips, the last line...pitch perfect. "All marines, prepare to drop." Chills.
