5. Beyond Two Souls
Heavy Rain was a bit of a Marmite game, you either loved it or hated it. I happened to love it. After seeing Quantic Dreams amazing PS3 tech demo earlier this year. I knew something special was brewing. And Beyond Two Souls is that something special “Beyond will be unlike anything you’ve experienced before, it will be emotional, mature and unique,” said David Cage. I couldn’t tell you what the hell is going on in the video but it sure as hell looks good. Plus it has some major Hollywood talent on board.
4. Assassins Creed III
We expected this game to look good, and we expected to see some gameplay footage. But what we didn’t expect is how good it actually looks. It’s hard to believe this is running on current generation hardware. Couple that with the almighty looking Assassins Creed III: Liberation for the PS Vita and we have a game that well deserves its spot in the top 5.
3.The Last of Us
Not much can be said about this trailer, I think the footage speaks for itself. Naughty Dog really have crafted a game that depicts the struggle for survival when the odds are stacked against you. Oh and it looks beautiful too. It’s hard to imagine a game looking better than this on current generation. Which leads me nicely to…
2.Star Wars 1313
I hate to have trailers that are running on high-end PC’s in this top ten, it almost feels like cheating. But what it does do is bring us a teaser of what we can expect from the next generation of gaming consoles. Star Wars 1313 being the first example. Just look at it, it’s stunning, plus it has more in common with the original trilogy than the poxy episodes 1-3 which is always a good thing.
1. Watch Dogs
There could only be one winner really, and it had to be Watch Dogs. Not just because it looked phenomenal, but because it bought some genuine new gameplay ideas to the party. Using the entire city as a weapon is a fantastically exciting idea. Oh, and did I mention that it looks beautiful? If you haven’t seen the E3 trailer already you really should.
