The Best Video Game Trailers From Sony’s Paris Games Week Presentation – Forbes
Sony showed off a bunch of games this Monday at Paris Games Week. Some are new, some are just new trailers, and some are more exciting than others. I’ve picked ten new trailers from PGW that are the cream of the crop.
We’ll start with perhaps the most controversial of the bunch…
1. The Last Of Us Part II
I’ll be honest, I’m not sure how to feel about this new Last of Us 2 trailer. It’s beyond grim. The violence is frankly a little upsetting. It makes me worry that the sequel to one of the PS3’s best twilight releases will be overly dark and gritty. Sometimes I just can’t handle that. What made the first game great is that it really was about this bond formed between Joel and Ellie. It was about love; the sequel, according to its creators, is about hate. Before you watch this one, just realize that it’s kind of hard to stomach.
2. Marvel’s Spider-Man
Spider-Man is a good palette-cleanser after the ultra-violence of The Last Of Us 2. This looks like a fantastic action superhero game. It’s been a long time since we got a decent Spidey game, which makes this even more exciting. Actually, Peter Parker is kind of on a role these days. I loved the recent film, and this looks like a great video game version with a good story and fun mechanics.
3. Ghosts of Tsushima
This was a very pleasant surprise. From the makers of the Infamous games we get this splendid looking Samurai title, though we see very little in the way of gameplay in this announcement trailer. Still, Samurai adventure with the menace of the Mongol horde to contend with sounds like my kind of game.
