This is it, ladies and gentlemen. All those other Grand Theft Auto V trailers were merely warm-up acts, keeping the crowd entertained until this, the official trailer, was ready to take the stage.
This is the trailer you pull up if a friend of yours asks “Say, what’s this Grand Theft Auto V I’ve been hearing so much about?” It’s the answer. Show them this, then maybe ease them into a preview with a little music.
You wouldn’t show them the three character trailers — they’d have no context. You wouldn’t drop them headfirst into the trailer with the multiplayer reveal at the end, because the wouldn’t get it. Why not go with the first or second? What are you, insane?
Trust me, stick with this one. It’s got everything — action, adventure, explosions, clever dialogue. They’ll think Grand Theft Auto V is a movie, and they’ll be pleasantly surprised when they find out it’s so much more.
