The Best Video Game Trailers Of 2011

The Best Video Game Trailers Of 2011

With an onus on spectacle and selling you on a mood, instead of a stage or actual footage, video game trailers have become an artform unto themselves.

That being the case, we thought we would, as usual, look back on some of the year’s best.

These aren’t necessarily the trailers for the best games (though big ones do feature). Nor are they the trailers which best showed off what a game could do (though sometimes that’s the case). They’re just the best trailers, the most entertaining, the funniest and/or the most polished.

If there’s one you think we missed, drop it into comments and it we’ll see what we can do about getting it in the gallery.
