Top 10 Video Game Trailers of the Last Generation

the-last-of-us-06

The last console generation saw the release of countless video game titles and with them, countless more trailers. Many made us roll our eyes, scoff in disgust and even completely write a game off but we have also been treated to some truly great ones. Great trailers that placed unknown titles of our radar, turned “maybes” into “must-buys” and “day 1 purchases”, as well simply make us more hyped to play them.

Below are the ten best trailers and 1 honorable mention of games that came out during the PS3, 360 and Wii generation. Not counting any games that released or will be on last and next gen systems.

Note* This list is entirely opinionated, the opinion of yours truly and does not represent RGN as a whole.
