Fallout 4

Rate: 8.5/10

In the Fallout universe, visual is king since fans have grown accustomed to and adore the franchise’s well-established elements. There are some recurring themes in the series that cannot be overlooked, from the post-apocalyptic setting to the pop culture and fashion of 1950s-era America.

That is why the Fallout 4 teaser was so excellent. The video game’s trailer depicted life before the end of the world as a highly developed technological society living in a 1950s-style society, before the optimism of the past gave way to the gloom and horrors of the post-apocalyptic world fans now know.

Watch Dogs 2

Rate: 8/10

Watch Dogs has to be one of Ubisoft’s recent breakout series. The franchise, which is based on a near future controlled by technology, started as a one-man struggle against the criminals using technology to exact revenge in Chicago, but it wasn’t until Watch Dogs 2 that the fun and social aspects of this world were really highlighted.

The new San Francisco backdrop and the new story, which will change the franchise forever by focusing on the collective activities of the hacktivist group DedSec rather than on a single person, were both demonstrated in the video.

Dead Island

Rate: 8/10

This next zombie apocalypse game, like Dying Light, truly stood out because of its horrific but hilarious trailer. Fans were given a preview of the hazardous world of Dead Island in a breathtaking game trailer, which displayed the graphic, action-packed, yet poignant tale elements of the game.

Fans saw numerous scenes of island life for tourists partaking in parties, seaside resort holidays, and vices abounding in the trailer. However, it quickly becomes clear that a virus has spread over the island, and the trailer soon shows the undead attacking the island’s tourist population.

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

Rate: 7.5/10

The Assassin’s Creed franchise from Ubisoft has ranked among the most lucrative video game brands to date. There have been many fantastic films and releases in the franchise, but Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood’s must rank as one of the most artistic and visually stunning.

In the game’s video, Ezio, the Master Assassin from the second game, could be seen slicing through the masses in Rome while the Borgia family holds sway. Ezio is soon revealed to be fighting alongside a tiny army of assassins who are positioned to face Cesare Borgia’s men.

Dying Light

Rate: 7.5/10

Video games in the zombie apocalypse genre that are truly distinctive and exceptional must find a method to stand out from all of the others in the genre. The cinematic trailer for Dying Light, one of the best zombie games of the past ten years, accomplishes precisely that by showcasing the game’s innovative new gaming features.

Fans were shown survivors rushing through abandoned buildings and zombie-infested streets while uncountable hordes of the infected chased them around, building on the heart-pounding action of the game itself. The emphasis was on survival and the parkour element of the gameplay.

DC Universe Online

Rate: 7/10

DC Universe: Online has to have one of the best trailers and opening cinematics in recent memory. The movie depicted a future in which the good guys and bad guys engaged in one final apocalyptic fight, nearly destroying an entire metropolis as the forces of good fought their most formidable adversaries.

The psychotic genius, led by Lex Luthor, plotted the deaths of countless legendary heroes, including his archrival Superman. But when the invincible Brainiac returned after his victory, Luthor escaped to the past to prevent this future from occurring because there were no more heroes.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Rate: 7/10

The Batman franchise wanted to find a way to wrap up the main plot epically after the startling events of Arkham City, and to achieve so they required a danger that would put Batman to the test because the mayhem the Joker caused in the city no longer served as a barrier to the criminals.

The third game’s teaser showed the organized movement that came after the Joker, with the criminals banding together as one under the control of the terrifying vision of the Scarecrow and the military troops of the enigmatic Arkham Knight. This show of apocalyptic displays was stunning visually.


Above is our recommendation of what we consider the Best Cinematic Video Game Trailers. While the gameplay is the primary component of many video games, any game worth its salt needs to have a captivating, eye-catching, and memorable trailer to pique players’ interest.

The quality of video game trailers has improved over the past few years, but some stand out above the rest.
