Warning you guys — I have an opinion and I'm about to share it. Oh, watch out everyone! I totally do not see the point of these live action trailers for video games which are not live action. Surely that makes sense...
Maybe it's like that video game art in the 80s, remember those insane pieces of art which looked nothing like anything that happened in the game itself? Maybe these live action trailers are supposed to represent the experience that happens in your imagination as you play — or perhaps its some sort of idealised Mass Effect.
Regardless, I think Mass Effect, and most games for that matter, have come far enough to represent themselves as video games. In fact, poorly made live action trailers like the one above only just seems to reduce the impact of the game. Attempting to shoehorn the mechanics of a game into some quasi-real scenario just leaves the whole thing looking a little... juvenile.
What do you guys think?
