Yes, The Hitman Absolution Launch Trailer Features Dubstep, But I Like It

I know it's really cool to hate on the ubiquitous use of dubstep in video game trailers but, you know what? The launch trailer for Hitman: Absolution has just been released, and I actually really like the song being used, despite its use of the old 'wubwubwub'.

The game itself? I haven't had the chance to play it yet, but it's been on the receiving end of a some seriously mixed reviews, which I like. I think it's awesome that we're starting to see a few dissenting voices in our video game reviews now.

But anyway — Hitman: Absolution. This is the trailer, and I really like the song!


    When the music fits the trailer, like in this case, it works well.

    Sort of want. I've only played Hitman II on Cube, but I loved that.

    The direction on all of these trailers has been fantastic.

    I am so unbelievably annoyed by how this site constantly brings up dubstep in trailers, its unnecessary, and the tone is always "haha look at this shit genre!" There are fans of dubstep who no longer visit your site because of this. I am not a fan of it, but I am sick of the constant attention it receives on this site.

    Mark, you don't need an "angle" to post a launch trailer, just post the damn trailer free of your judgement on its music.

      Its ok. You will one day realise dubstep is shit too.

        I clearly said I am not a fan. I love, and have a career mixing electronic music, and I despise it, but I also respect other people.

        Seemingly unlike yourself, warcroft.

          "There are fans of dubstep who no longer visit your site because of this."
          Really? They're that petty? Well good riddance to them.
          Geez, I'm gonna stop visiting this site because oversensitive whingers post comments on it.
          Don't have too much of a hissy fit, you might burst something dude.

      err, are you on Kotaku to find out about games or trivial analyses about musical genres by a writer who clearly specialises in writing about games?
