I just had a flashback to Yars Revenge.
Insert imagination, lol
I personally kind of like them but I can see why someone wouldnt care for them.
In response to eRockers post about how games back in the old days really didn't quite match up to what we ended up playing.
I bought this when I was a kid.
Ohh sweet some hot chick!
Maybe there be some tittays in game!
I think I see the boobs!
I think they're a waste of resources. Instead of wasting time on a cinamatic trailer, they should put that effort into improving the game.
I have to vote YES. Give me gameplay footage please!
It isn't lying. Why would it be lying?
I like cinematic trailers.
They are many times epic and keep people in jobs.
Promoting a product other than with actual footage is done by almost every product manufacturer in the world in all mediums (television, internet, print) and makes the advertisement more interesting.
It's not their fault if some people believe what they see is somehow real.
Problem is companies like Sony. Anyone remember Kill Zone 2? They were passing that CGI BS off as gameplay.
If a trailer is titled as "cinematic" I don't see a problem. If they are trying to pass off a cinematic as actual gameplay then they should definitely be called out on it.
You are assuming marketing teams are honest........having worked in passed marketing I can tell you they make used car salesmen look like Andy Griffith.
I don't care about trailers.
That's an easy fix. Don't die so much.
im a game developer and i hate it if they show pre rendered junk as ingame
UNLESS it's the kind of game where you have zero way of knowing what is coming, or if before a difficult bossfight. Or at the very beginning of the game. Again B&W comes to mind..
Pfft I don't die all that often then.
LOL, yes, I was missing that.
In that case, I think it's silly to complain, since the only real way to tell what a game is going to be like as far as previews, is watching gameplay footage demos. If you're watching a lot of cinematic trailers out of anxiety, your bad.
My point exactly
What don't people understand about the word trailers, where talking about marketing trailers like on TV and on game sites not in game cinematic's those are great.
I remember time shift trailer was mostly CGI but the game did play similar to the scene that was shown. I wished they would atleast make a second one.
modern games can have difficult boss fights? who knew?
Yes im sick of them too, but IMO the waiting game will soon be over (I remember HellGate London was one of those hyped scams)
Check Unreal 4 engine & SquareEnix Luminous engine, both in full flex ~ Q3-Q4 2013 and through 2014
I thought Hellgate: London was a good game that had good potential.
Unfortunately it was dropped onto the market long before it should have been.
Uhh ok, uh mad bro? I grew up with cinematic trailers with games way back into the early 90's of PC gaming, its part of the fun factor to see awesome cinematics getting you excited and pulling you into the game, thats the idea.
If your sick of em, skip em or get a different hobby I guess.
They were fun to certain point, but lately its just plain stupid since we could already have certain portions of it.
Although things are about to change soon
What are these changes you speak of?!!
Separate names with a comma.
