Live Action trailers are certainly a strange thing to see for a game, and if I am frank I don’t quite understand why they are done. For one, the above Skyrim trailer looks more like a trailer for Game of Thrones than a game, then is promptly ruined by the giganto-fake dragon at the end. Below the jump is the Battlefield 3 trailer.
Which is a bit better mixing up real world shots with game shots, and here the fake stuff doesn’t shine through quite as glaringly as the dragon in the Skyrim trailer.
While these are two high budget glossy affairs, I still think that Red Alert 2 had some of the best live action cut scenes. Just check out this intro to the game.
