Up until now my favorite trailer for a video game was the original trailer for Dead Island.  The backward running video and the forward running flashbacks coming together.  The use of a child.  The slow, sad beat of the piano accompaniment. This “perfect storm” of a trailer set your imagination on fire.

Until now, not one game trailer has lived up to the emotional ride we were taken on by Techland’s Dead Island trailer.

Until now!
